Gutmann Weizenbock

weissbier in glass with bottle
Gutmann Weizenbock

Brewery: Guttmann
Town: Titting
Style: Weizenbock
Color:  honeycomb
Head: white, rocky
Nose: yeasty, malty, fruity
Body: medium
Palate: malty, yeasty, some typical banana/clove
Finish: lingering, fairly clean

Served: from a bottle bought in Franconia

Impression: I finally got a chance to try one of the top rated Weizens in Franconia, Gutmann. So, I was intrigued to hear they also brewed a Weizenbock and was happily shocked to find a bottle in a Munich beer store. Franconian beers aren’t so popular here in my hometown but I had noticed the regular Gutmann Weizen as of late so was hopeful. It’s a great looking Weizenbock with a perfect honeycomb hue and gorgeous rocky head. The yeast in the nose mingles well with the otherwise fruity palate. Much like the regular Weizen, it has a subdued banana/clove element. I found the Weizenbock a lot less balanced then the every day beer but it wasn’t particularly cloying, especially at 7.2% It’s certainly a good Weizenbock but not up there with the best.

Next beer or back to the beer list.

  1. Have you ever actually been to Titting? I haven’t, but I suppose the closest I’ve come was Ingolstadt.

    1. No, I haven’t, Don. I’m not as into Weißbier as when I first traveled to Bavaria. So, I wouldn’t go there just for the beer. I’m not even sure the brewery has a pub but I’d heard it was THE Weizen in Franconia so just had to try it. I was happy to find it in a shop. I have been to Ingolstadt though not for the outlets like most people but for the…you guessed it, brewery.
