Tucher – Helles Hefe Weissen

GS6A1950Tucher brewery is located in Nürnberg, Germany. The brewery produced beer for the hospitals since 1643, but the official founding date for the brewery is 1672. In 1806 the brewery became a royal Bayern brewery as the King bought it. It was sold off to in 1855 to the Dr.-Lorenz-Tucher-Stiftung. It was renamed to Tucher in 1985 and is today since 2004 owned by the Oetker group.

I bought this beer at Vinmonopolet in Oslo, Norway, which explains the price of 4,5 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 5,2%.

The colour is a regular yellow unfiltered beer.

The head is rather small and settles quickly into a very thin layer.

The aroma comes off with a sweet fruit to it that is very inviting.

Heavy CO2 with a quick fruit taste, it fades almost as fast as you can drink it, there is still a slight after taste, but more along the lines of yeast than fruit.

Overall rating 70 / 100
