Noon Gun Brewery Muzzle Loader Weiss

MUZZLE LOADER

WEISS | 5.2% ALC

Banana on the nose, then an explosion of Weiss on the tongue. Our award-winning Muzzle Loader Weiss is lightly hopped to create a slightly floral and enlivening taste.

Muzzle Loader is crispier and clearer than the traditional Weiss, thereby making it an all-year-beer for every season and occasion.

Gravity: 12.7° plato down to 2.8° plato
Colour: Gold
Tasting Notes: Tangy banana, slight toffee undertone with a crystal-fresh finish
