Nothhaft Rawetzer Weißbier
Color: unfiltered, golden
Nose: strong banana, yeast
Palate: balanced, yeasty, banana
Finish: fairly clean
Served: on tap at Am Strand (Nothhaft brewery tap)
Impression: I wasn’t much in the mood for a Weißbier but with such a big meal, I needed multiple beers and had grown tired of the Helles. I’d seen a nice looking Weizen but once I saw this, I knew it had to be their Dunkelweizen. This one looked like one of those Helles-Weißbier hybrid beers, which can be okay if they have a bit of hops in them. This turned out to only have that look and was very much a banana yeast affair. If you really like banana, this is your beer.
