  • Weihenstephaner Korbinian
    rated 4.5 3 weeks ago

    Aroma: 9 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 9 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 9

    Nose: raisins, creme brulee, clove and banana faintly present. Appearance: opaque deep brown body topped with a long-lasting beige head with nice lace. Mouth: Fizzy for sure, clean with medium body plays strongly on the back of the tongue. Flavor: Damn this is tasty! Light coffee and sweet cacao in the front. Esters and phenols are present but very minimal..... I love this balance. Creme brulee really coming out as it warms slightly. Alcohol very well masked but slightly warming in the middle of the taste. Very very long finish which starts slightly sweet but really ends clean. Could be my new favorite brew.

  • Weihenstephaner Kristallweissbier
    rated 3.7 4 weeks ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    Nose: Clove, bubble gum, grass, violets. Appearance: Indeed a crystal clear body, moderate short-lived head leaving more suds than lace. Mouth: medium body, slick, decent tingle, not coating. Flavor: Surprisingly sweet, drinking a bit on the warm side and getting maple syrup, clove aspect is there and is drying on the mouth, short finish is dry and baking spice. Bubblegum is there. Slightly more hops and less esters than a straight hefe as it should be.

    Sorry to ask us to put up a description so here it is. At the end of the 19th century, Munich took great pleasure in two new beaming additions to the city: the golden Angel of Peace and the first lager beer speciality, Münchner Gold. Still brewed by us to this day according to the age-old recipe, this slightly stronger beer is a mature masterpiece and delights with its enticing malty aroma and its slightly stronger original wort. Color pale, golden-yellow Flavours balanced Bitterness balanced Alcohol 5,5 % vol Calorific values 46 kcal / 100 ml Choice hops Hallertauer Tradition, Hallertauer Herkules Premium malt Marthe, Grace and Catamaran barley varieties Perfect with: Our Münchner Gold is particularly tasty as an accompaniment to traditional Bavarian snacks with bread, salad, sliced meats and typical cheese specialities such as Obatzda (Camembert spread) and blue-veined cheese. We also recommend it with fish, seafood and juicy roast chicken. Decent mouth slightly watery very short finish. I know it can't be but this tastes like corn to me. Christian Moulton and some very lightly bittering hops, it's like a better Budweiser. NOW A REVIEW Hell nose of malt and grass. We are medium gold body not much lasting to the head and no lace. Maybe it's just not my cup of pee.

    Red berry fruit, cotton candy, tobacco, in this big nose. There's a cake extremely dark brown with a deep tan head that lasts well and leaves good lace. Creamy slick and coating in the mouth with a medium body. The starts a little on the sweet side and finishes nicely bitter. There's coffee and dark chocolate and a lot of toasty malts. The alcohol is warming there's perhaps a bit of a vanilla flavor towards the end and the finish is long.
