Impression: I finally got a chance to sit in the brewery’s charming Biergarten and though not a hot day, I had some time so decided to give their Weißbier a try. It’s a good looking one and has the appropriate banana/clove nose and palate but it didn’t really grab me. To be fair, I’d had a few of their excellent Kellerbiers and one of their very tasty Dunklesbiers so it’s not probably a fair comparison. That said, it’s a very refreshing and well-made beer and I’m sure if I had arrived on a hot day and drank one of these off the bat, it would have been just what the doctor ordered. So, Weißbier fans, grab one while there!
