Kössel Bräu – Mariahilfer Weizen

Kössel Bräu is located in Eisenberg-Speiden, Bavaria, Germany and is owned by Anton Kössel who also founded the brewery, destillery and guest house in 1992.

I bought this weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,0%

Unfiltered beer with a beautiful and light yellow colour.

Large head with a rough structure, a little bit of fine foam on the top.

Medium strength aroma that has a real delicious sweet fruit to it.

Good CO2, fresh, sweet and very well composed with going into a slightly bitter hops at the end. Ceramic cap is not seen that often on exported beer, might be because it is bought from a Bavarian webshop. A pleasure to drink!

Overall rating 86 / 100

The first mentions of the Zötler brewery dates back to 1447 and actually makes the brewery the oldest single family owned brewery in the world.

I bought this weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%

Deep yellow in the colour of this unfiltered beer.

Medium sized rough structured head with a fine foam on the top.

Powerful aroma that has a balanced sweet fruit to it along with the wheat.

Good CO2, fruited, fresh, acidity, wheated and with a sweet after taste. Delicious composition, but not thick enough in the fabric to leaves a substantial print. Still a solid and good beer.
