Hofbräuhaus Traunstein – Weissbier

Hofbräuhaus Traunstein was founded in Traunstein, Germany in the year of 1612 by the Elector of Bavaria, Maximilian I. The brewery was bought by Josef Sailer in 1896. In 1982 brewery Traunstein becomes the first brewery in the world to offer draught weissbier. The brwery is still owned and operated by the Sailer family.

Fun fact, in 1704 and 1851 buckets of beer was used to put out two large city fires in Traunstein.

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

Good looking unfiltered beer with a yellow/orange play in the colour.

Gigantic head with a fine foam on the top but a rough structure underneath. Stays on the beer for a long while.

Medium wheat notes in the aroma with a sweet hint.

Good CO2 balance, creamy wheat notes and a fresh fruit taste. After taste is good and ends in a bit of hops.

Overall rating 78 / 100
