Jacob – Weissbier

GS6A9361

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 5,3%.

Thick yellow but also slightly over in the orange spectrum.

Great big head with the finest of finest top.

Medium sweet fruit aroma with a hint of hops and wheat.

Good CO2, sweet fruit, good balance with a play between the hops and wheat.

Overall rating 83 / 100
