Hofbräu Hefe Weizen
Back in 1602 Weissbier could only be brewed by ducal
privilege. It was Munich’s first Hefe Weizen. Hofbräuhaus enjoyed this exclusive
right for nearly 200 years, thus holding a monopoly on Weissbier in Bavaria.
But even without a monopoly, Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is a really special kind of
beer. Characterized by its sparkling rich foam and distinguished by its
unforgettable refreshing and fruity taste. It is brewed according to an ancient
tradition and offers an alcoholic content of approximately 5.1% by volume. Savor
the pure, refreshing enjoyment!
FOR OVER 400 YEARS A CLASSIC FAVORITE!
What to expect:
Pour: Pours a bright and very hazy golden orange with lots of
rising bubbles. Big four fingers of white head with good retention. Leaves some
nice lacing around the glass.
Aroma: A fairly sweet aroma. Wheat grains, yeast, and bready
malts. Hints of banana, hay, bubblegum, lemon, and orange along with a solid
bready biscuit presence. A little bit of a clove and pepper like spice. Light
noble hops. Also a little bit of that skunk smell from the green bottle.
Smell: Notes of lemony citrus. A touch of banana. Some wheat
and coriander. A light bit of pepper and some other spices. Smells fruity and
fresh. Well balanced.
Taste: Nice bready taste from wheat grains, malts, and yeast.
Notes of bananas, lemon, bubblegum, hay, and orange peel. Some light clove
spices. Hop presence is very subdued. Moderately sweet taste with some nice
fruit esters. Light but solid taste you expect from the style.
Mouth Feel: Fairly light body with a moderate amount of
carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and somewhat dry. Very smooth.
Drinkability: A beer that is excellent for a warm day. Very
refreshing and easy to drink. A very nice German treat. A pretty solid take on
the style. Well balanced with some nice esters.
