The Munich Hops Club Night July 18, 2012 König Ludwig Royal Bavarian Hefe-Weizen Weissbier

The Munich Hops Club Night
On Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at 6:00 PM

Featuring: Hofbräu Münchner Sommer Naturtrüb


A subtly bitter and refreshing ale - the original Munich beer garden specialty.

Hofbräu München's Münchner Sommer naturtrüb is brewed according to traditional recipes. The refreshing sparkle makes this bottom-fermented, naturally cloudy beer garden specialty an ideal alternative to Weissbier.

Münchner Sommer naturtrüb has a shimmering, opalescent look and pours to an amber hue and a fine-pored head. The bottom-fermented classic offers 5.1% alcohol content and a hoppy aroma with a touch of fruitiness. It is a refreshing, sparkling drink with estery notes and a subtly bitter finish. A good alternative to Weissbier!
What to expect:

Pour: The beer pours a lightly clouded orange/gold color with a nice big white head with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing. Lots of sticky lacing coated the glass.

Aroma: Tinges of orange, a great looking beer, and especially one for the style.

Smell: A nice hoppiness is immediately noticeable on the nose. Lots of floral notes with mild citrus peel and a hint of grass. There is plenty of yeast along with a bread and cracker malt base. Smells almost like a complicated weizen even though this is a Keller bier. A big wheat presence as with a very noticeable cardamom note; the mid ground is a medium strength banana flavor. Big pilsner malts for a lightly sweet bready aroma.

Taste: There is a nice, mild sweetness to the beer with the bread and cracker notes that were present on the nose. A bit more sweetness from a mild honey flavor. Still lots of grassy, citrus peel, and floral hops. The taste was upfront earthy hops followed by a full doughy malt and finishing with a bit of sweetness. Green apple tickle the front of the tongue. Sharp, but not overbearing, hop bitterness lingers a little in the finish.

Mouth Feel: The body is pretty light with a medium carbonation and a touch chewy. The taste is pretty incredible, loved it Dry, bitter finish primes for the next drink.

Drinkability: A beer that is excellent for a warm day. Very refreshing and easy to drink. A very nice German treat. From malt to yeast to hops...and, of course, all in good balance.

Style: Keller Bier / Zwickel Bier
