Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weisse

GS6A2416

Hacker brewery was founded in 1417 in Munich, Germany. In 1793 Joseph Pschorr married into the brewery family. In 1813 they had the largest beer cellar in Germany, known as the Beer fortress.

I bought this beer in KaDeWe in Berlin, Germany at the price of 1,73 Euro for at 500 ml bottle at 5,5%.

A beautiful orange colour with a nice glow fills the glass.

A big and fine head with a yellow hint that stays for a long time.

The aroma comes off with a light fruit.

Lively CO2, lightly fruited, after taste is quickly over. Good to quenching your thirst, but too little taste in it.

Overall rating 73 / 100

 

Berliner Kindl Weisse

GS6A2414

Berliner Kindl was founded in 1872 as a collaboration between bar owners in Berlin. The name that is known today was established in 1910. Today there is no brewery for just this beer as the brand is owned by the Dr. Oetker company and brewed on large breweries.

I bought this beer in KaDeWe in Berlin, Germany at the price of 0,77 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 3%.

Light yellow colour with just a slight haze, not that unfiltered.

White fine head that disappears fast.

Fruit aroma that comes of with a hint of bitterness.

Citrus. It is fresh, bitter and comes off with a strong citrus in the start, CO2 is okay.

Overall rating 71 / 100

 

Hösl Whiskey-weisse

GS6A2415

The privately owned brewery Hösl was founded in 1906 by Michael Hösl in Mitterteich, Bavaria, Germany. The brewery burned down in 1957 and was recently restored in 2006. The brewery is today run by second generation of the Hösl family.

I bought this beer in a local beer shop in Berlin, Germany at the price of 3 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,6%.

A deep orange going over in brown colour with a nice glow in the bottom.

The head takes some colour from the beer and it disappears quickly into a thin layer.

A very sweet and fruity aroma with a certain freshness to it.

Low CO2, smoked, dark taste with a freshness from the hard to taste fruit. The after taste is dominated by the smoke by ends too soon.

Overall rating 79 / 100
