Hacker-Pschorr – Hefe Weisse Natürtrub
Serving type: Bottle into weizen glass
Hi, my name is Mike and I’m addicted to hefeweizens.
I don’t know if it’s the easy drinkability or the nice wheat flavors that make me a sucker for anything hefe related. It just goes down so damn easy! Luckily ABV isn’t higher or I’d be the one going down easy!
This classic German offering starts off a classic murky orange complimented by a tremendously large, fluffy white head that slowly faded away to about one finger. Lookin’ good Hacker. Lookin reeeaaal good.
This was followed by a big wheat and yeast nose with a faint spice to it. Not as exciting as hefes of previous posts, but still a solid aroma that makes your mouth water in anticipation of the first sip. And when that first sip comes, you get some delicious bready and light malts as a reward. A very light citrus finishes up your taste buds on the end. The body is light and carbonated well. Very easy to put a few back, as most great hefes are known for.
I got to say that this is another good example of a solid German hefe. I still prefer mine with some more corriander and banana kick, but I really enjoy the style regardless.
