Harvey Weissbanger

Delicious Beer Cocktail. Complex & Balanced.
1 oz Vodka, Stolichnaya
12 oz Galliano
12 oz Dry vermouth, Dolin
3 oz Weissbier, Dennison's (Keep Separate)
1 oz Orange juice
12 oz Lemon juice
12 oz Clove Syrup (Homemade)
1   Egg white
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 twst Orange peel (as garnish)
In a Collins glass, add the 2.5-3oz of Weissbier. Separately, in a mixing glass, add all remaining ingredients. Dry Shake, then add ice and shake again. Strain into a fresh glass and allow the egg white to separate completely. Then slowly combine the mixture into the Collins with the beer. This allows you to control how much of the frothy head you get over top. Orange Zest/Garnish. Enjoy.
Dennison's Weissbier from Toronto, ON, Canada works the best.
I used to make Harvey Wallbangers for my Grandfather, Harvey. I'm fairly certain he only liked them because of the name. The name came to me before the cocktail, but after a few Google searches, it turned out, I wasn't the first bartender to take a crack at this, but all the recipes I found weren't up to snuff. Banana's, Cloves & Coriander are the primary notes on the nose for Weissbier. So, the Clove Syrup acts as the bridge between the two and blending the Lemon & Vanilla from the Galliano sort of creates a complicated substitute for the Banana.
