Drink

Posted: August 19, 2007

Stick your nose into the foamy crown atop a tall pint of Sly Fox's Royal Weisse, and imagine the fresh flavor of summer in a Bavarian beer garden. This amber brew from the Royersford brewery is cloudy with unfiltered yeasty flavor, and the wheat-baked aromas are vivid, tipped with banana and clove and a tangerine finish.

It's a perfectly mellow quaff on tap - and many of the area's best bars, like Tria and Johnny Brenda's, have it flowing this summer. But Sly Fox adds a little more carbonation to its canned version, available seasonally only through mid-September, and that kick adds just the right oom-pah of extra sparkle.

Sly Fox Royal Weisse is on tap at several local bars, including Sly Fox's brewpubs in Royersford and Phoenxiville, for $3.50 a pint. The cans are available at local beer distributors for about $25 a case.
