Posts Tagged ‘Delaware and Raritan Canal’

Zitronenweizen by Triumph Brewing Company

After a 15 mile bike ride on the Delaware & Raritan Canal rail trail, I was thirsty.  As I was deciding how to quench that thirst at the train station of the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad, I got the whiff of ground beef being cooked and that made me hungry.  I took a look over to where the lovely smell was coming from and lo and behold I saw Triumph Brewing Companys New Hope, Pennsylvania location.  I figured why not kill two birds with one stone, hunger and thirst.

Sitting on the outdoor patio watching the tourist train of the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad is where I had the pleasure to enjoy beer #210, Zitronenweizen by Triumph Brewing Company of New Hope, Pennsylvania.  Zitronenweizen is a Hefeweizen with an ABV of 4.8%.

Out came the beer in a pint glass and it had a hazy pale gold or yellow color (sorry…it looks hazy pale orange to me in the photo…new phone…have to learn how to take a good photo with it) with no head whatsoever.  I was so thirsty, I took a sip before even smelling it but when I did smell it I got aromas of wheat, grass, lemon, and maybe peach or apricot.  The taste was tart and lemony with a nice wheat backbone and a nice spicy flavor that I couldn’t really identify.  This was quite refreshing and smooth with a medium-light body and low carbonation.

It was a nice after ride drink and one that worked well on a nice summer day that today was…so much so I had another.  It went well with Triumph’s Brewhouse Burger…yep I got my fix of grilled ground beef and it was quite delicious!  Great day…great ride…great burger…yummy beer…what more could I ask for?
