I bought this weissbier from a German webshop in Bayern as a part of a large lot, single price came down to 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,3%

Deep orange with brown notes to the colour.

Big head with a super fine foam on the top.

Aroma comes off with a light fruit and wheated tones.

Powerful CO2 and also power on the taste! Superb fruit, a lot of taste in the thick flowing fruited beer, has notes from the dark side of malts. Good composition.

Overall rating 84 / 100
