Jacob – Leichtes Weissbier

 

GS6A9423

In 1738, the workers of the smelting work in Bodenwöhr, Bayern, Germany requested permission from Karl Albrecht, Elector of Bavaria, to establish a brewhouse so that they would no longer need to import the brews of a somewhat inferior quality from nearby towns. The first master brewer, Peter Still from Fischbachbegan his work in 1758, so some twenty years later.

In 1759 Peter Still died and while it was a state owned it was decided to privatize the brewery, which happened in 1804. In 1884, Johann Baptist Jacob – the great-grandfather of present-day owner, Marcus Jacob – acquired the company.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 2,7%.

Dark orange to brown in this hazy beer that features a amber colour spectrum.

Small head with a fine top, gone in a short moment.

Lovely sweet fruit aroma with a hint burned sugar.

Forceful CO2, but with a thin fruit, sweet and slightly bitter wheat in the after taste.

Overall rating 72 / 100

Privatbrauerei Schimpfle – Lösch-zwerg cola weizen

GS6A9383

In 1864 Mathias Schimpfle buys a small hotel / restaurant with rights to brew, in Gessertshausen, Bayern, Germany. In 1919 his son Josef Schimpfle takes over. In 1955 both sons of Josef, Josef and Alfons takes over after the death of their father. In 1998 Thomas Schimpfle joins the company at a age of 22.

 

I bought this cola mixed with weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 330 ml bottle at 2,8%.

Clear as a regular cola, simply brown.

Medium head with a ultra fine structure.

Cola aroma with a bit of a weird vegetables hint, but nothing bad.

Good CO2, mild, delicious mix of cola and wheat, sweet and a real thirst quencher.

Overall rating 72 / 100

Kapuziner weissbier – kristall weizen

GS6A9774

Kulmbacher brewery was founded in 1846 in Kulmbach, Germany. The brewery was newly rebuilt in 1878 to 1892. The first Kapuziner weissbier was brewed in 1987.

I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,4%.

Good looking orange unfiltered beer with a slightly brighter bottom.

Big head with a very fint top.

A petite and fresh fruit in the aroma, slightly sweet and some alcohol.

Dark fruit, sweet but the alcohol just takes up too much of the taste.
