Tucher – Helles Hefe Weissen

GS6A3438

Tucher brewery is located in Nürnberg, Germany. The brewery produced beer for the hospitals since 1643, but the official founding date for the brewery is 1672. In 1806 the brewery became a royal Bayern brewery as the King bought it. It was sold off to in 1855 to the Dr.-Lorenz-Tucher-Stiftung. It was renamed to Tucher in 1985 and is today since 2004 owned by the Oetker group.

I did a earlier review of this beer in a 330 ml bottle.

I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 2,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%.

The colour is yellow with a light unfiltered look.

The very large and wild head, super fine bubbles on the top.

A light fruit and flowery aroma.

Light in the taste, lovely fresh fruit but with a low CO2.

A weak and watery fruit aroma, really thin.

I bought this beer at a Bayern web shop at the price of 2,5 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 5,2%.

A deep unfiltered beer with a lot of sediment making for a very dense look of orange and yellow.

A great big head of fine white bubbles, disappears into a layer that still covers the top.

A heavy and sweet fruit aroma with some banana to it, very good.

Medium CO2, a somewhat sweet fruit taste but no complex composition, it could use some more diversion in the taste to score higher.
