Roppelt (Trossenfurt) Weizen

weizen in glass
Roppelt Weizen

Brewery: Roppelt
Color: unfiltered amber

Head: white

Nose: yeasty, close, citrus

medium, effervescent
Palate: sourish, citrus, very slight clove

Finish: semi-dry

Served: on tap at the Roppelts Bierkeller

Impression: I don’t drink a lot of Weizens in Franconia but they become more common every year and many are excellent. So, if I hear anything good about one, I’ll make sure to try it. I didn’t have any advance information on this one but since they didn’t have their Dunkles or Pils available, I decided to give it a shot and was pleased with the somewhat non-traditional sourish citrus elements. There was only a hint of clove but it was drier than most in the field. If I’d come here right from my hike from Ebelsbach, I’m sure I’d have loved its refreshing quality. Otherwise, I’d still stick to their marvelous Lagerbier.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
