Kaiserdom Hefe-Weissbier

This wheat beer comes from the private owned brewery located at Bamberg in the northern Bayern.

Kaiserdom have been making beer here since 1718, which for a Bayern brewery could be described as being one of the younger breweries.

I found this beer at a local supermarket in Denmark at the very reasonable price of 80 Euro cents for a 500 ml can with a strength of 4,7%.

The colour is spot on for what I expect from a wheat beer, a golden yellow resembling the colours from the wheat field on a sunny day.

The head structure is a little too rough and I miss the very fine tiny bubbles, but the head is long lasting and sets off the beer nicely.

There is very little to none sediment on the bottom of the can and the beer just have this unfiltered look on its on, it could lack the joy of swirling the last bit of the bottle doing the pouring to get the sediment out.

A good fruity aroma tells me I am about to enjoy a good beer.

The taste is a light fruitful one where I am missing a slight hint of yeast to add a bit of bitterness to counter the fruit flavour.

The price of the beer, the appearance as described above leaves me with the impression this is a good beer that I would buy again if I saw it on the shelf, maybe even ask for it where I come, a few minor flaws on most subjects makes for a good beer that you should certainly try out!  

Overall rating is 80 / 100
