Wiethaler Kirchweih Bier

Brewery: Wiethaler
Town:
Neunhof
Style:
Festbier
Color: golden

Head: off-white
, rocky, lasting
Nose:
rich malt, faint grain, a touch of honey
Body: medium

Palate:
richly malty, toasted grain
Finish: lingering, hops peeking through

Served: from a bottle bought at the brewery

Impression: Wiethaler conveniently has a bottle shop with not only their regular line-up but also whatever seasonal beers they happen to still have. I was happy to pick up three. My first of the their seasonal beers is a Kirchweih Bier which I’d have imagined to be stronger than 5% but it’s quite a rich malty affair nonetheless. It’s got some toasted grain in the nose and a touch of honey, all carrying over to the surprisingly rich palate. The hops are buried but peek through in the lingering moreish finish.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
