Kuchlbauer – Dunkle Hefeweisse

Kuchlbauer brewery was founded in year 1300 in Abensberg, Germany.

Besides being a weissbier brewery, Kuchlbauer is very known for its art collection / decorated brewery and especially the Kuchlbauer Tower, an observation tower designed by Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser on the grounds of the Kuchlbauer Brewery.  The tower stands 35.14 meter tall and the gold-plated observation ball at the top is 10-meter in diameter and weighs 12 metric ton. The tower was opened to visitors in January 2010.

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%.

Dark and deep brown with a orange bottom.

Semi big head with a fine top, brown coloured from the beer.

Dark fruit aroma with a light sweetness.

Good CO2, fresh despite the darkness, easy to drink. Burned caramel and fruit in the after taste. Not so much sweet fruit in the taste.

Overall rating 79 / 100
