Hacker- Pschorr Weisse

What the brewers say

“Only the best ingredients are used in our unfiltered Weissbie—brewer’s wheat grown in the Champagne region and selected certified hops from the Hallertau.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Wow—really heavy on the strawberry, grapefruit, peach, banana, and melon, creating a nice balance between the fruit esters and spicy phenolics. Good wheat malt, mineral background, and lots of candy. Mild herbal hops nose.”

Flavor: “The wheat flavor in this one is soft, with a smooth creamy body and light carbonation. Crisp hops bitterness without being dominant that provides balance and character. Moderately sweet banana esters, but the phenol is less pronounced. The finish is dry, with a touch of light bitterness. The style is Germanic, but not excessively so.”

Overall: “Awesome Bavarian yeast aromatics, nice hops bitterness, and some really fun caramelly malt, but the aromas were pretty muted overall. It’s a good fruity hefe, with a lingering wheat and fruit aftertaste I loved. Nicely balanced and refreshing, but mildly flavored.”
