Schwaben Bräu – Das Weizen Hefe Hell

In 2007, Wolfgang Dinkelacker, buys back the brewery from the big corporation Inbev. The privately owned brewery, dinkelacker-Schwaben braü, is today still located in Stuttgart and have around 300 employees.

I bought this unfiltered weissbier in a wine shop in Odense, Denmark. At the price of 5 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 5%

Beautiful orange glowing colour.

Large white head, fine bubbles on the top, disperses into a thin layer.

Faint fruit in the aroma.

Strong CO2, the fruit taste is on the light side while it is overwhelmed by the sweet taste.
