Roll me over…in the clover…roll me over, lay me down and do it again. Ahh such a classic song. A classic you say? It sure is if you have ever been to Rosie Rumpe’s Regal Dumpe Dinner Theatre in Williamsburg, Virginia. I don’t believe it is open anymore and that is a shame. It was one of the funniest dinner theatres I have ever been too.
So in honor, I will pour beer #202, Slam Dunkel by Weyerbacher Brewing Company from Easton, Pennsylvania, into my Rosie Rumpe’s mug. This Weizenbock (ABV of 7%) was dark reddish brown with an awesome off-white head. It had a nice nose of caramel malts, bread, and there was a spicy component I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It tasted just like it smelled…sweet, malty caramel but also had a…and I thought this was a bit odd…banana flavor. It was quite yummy. Medium bodied with lower carbonation made this quite creamy.
This was a nice brew that I found easy to drink. I guess you could say this Slam Dunkel was a slam dunk. Drink up!
