Hefe-Weizen by Fürst Wallerstein Brauhaus is a 5.2% German Hefeweizen
In 1598, the royal Oettingen-Wallerstein family experienced the joy of brewing beer for the first time. Although the noble German family has gone through many changes over the years, their sacred recipes and brewing practices remain the same. All Wallerstein gourmet beers are made using local, natural ingredients and spend many weeks maturing in the brewery’s cellar to perfect their signature taste.
Got this one at Total Wine and More of Redondo Beach California. Apparently it is exclusive to them, so if you have a TW&M where you live, give it a try. I was definitely intrigued by the label but I also love the old pass time style of the German Hefeweizen, can’t go wrong. So let us see what this is about
Bananas, clove spice, citrus, lemon peel, bubble gum, biscuit bread, vanilla, caramel, wheat, coriander spice, honey and peppercorns.
Banana bread, cloves and coriander spice, toffee, caramel, lemons, oranges, mild peppercorn, honey, mild vanilla notes, bubble gum, pears and apples.
Aftertaste is of honey, wheat, banana, clove spice, and a bit of citrus. Refreshing, crisp and moderate;y easy to drink. No alcohol in the taste.
A very good Hefeweizen but nothing too out there or new which I have not tried before. It is very sweet and delicious for sure either way so if you are willing to pick it up, go for it. Just know, there are other awesome Hefeweizens out there too. They are pretty new around these parts so I will definitely give them a fair shot as I try more.
An original artwork by Akizone was used in this piece to show case some good aspects of the Grman beer. A knight never leaves without his/her sword and this case it was easy for me to choose the art pairing. The colors of her armor compliment the colors of the label. Her hair goes from dark caramel to a light citrus yellow and orange along with the other colors representing some of the other fruity flavors. Can you tell of any other things from this artwork piece?
