Sgt. Stiglitz Hefeweizen by El Boracho Home brewing is a 4.9% ABV Germen Hefeweizen.
A much appreciated and awesome donation by my good friend and homebrew brother, William Carranza. This here is his first Hefeweizen! To go with the the German aspect of it, Will chose the name from one of the characters from his favorite movies, the Inglourious Basterds where the character Sgt. Stiglitz was famous for killing 13 Gestapo officers. I think the fact that the Heff is low in ABV could explain how Stiglitz could swoop in like a ninja and take out nazis. Meaning that the fact that this could be good and make you drink many would enough to take you out too. Let’s examine this one and special thanks to William once again, Prost!

Banana, clove spice, coriander spice, orange hints, caramel, honey notes, peach hints, toffee, wheat bread and biscuits.
Banana notes, wheat bread, orange hints, honey, caramel toffee and peach hints. No alcohol in the taste, caramel gold body, crisp, smooth and refreshing mouth feel and easy to drink.
A very good heff that got better the more I drank it. Definitely in that summer ale range. While it is more of a lighter heffeweizen, a good amount of the delicious banana and clove spice of heffs can be found in this one.
Asuka Langley Soryu Shikinami from Neon Genesis Evangelion was used in this paring to go with the Sergeant Stiglitz as she is German descendant and an Eva pilot who would brutally and viciously destroy her enemies down to ripping their guts out in rage. Yes, as seen in The End of Evangelion movie. So definitely fitting for the Sergeant’s character but also this beverage which is easy going and smooth but keep drinking more I am sure you will have a “wonderful” time.
