Fragrance and taste of the «yeast-cloudy» wheat beer are distinguished by a refined top-fermented flowery-yeast character and an unmistakable, distinct banana aroma.
First sensation on the taste buds is full-bodied, very soft and mild with a lively, champagne-like sparkle. A light, typical wheat beer taste is expressed, the bitter tone of which can scarcely be detected. The sparklingly refreshing will impress every wheat beer connoisseur with the first mouthful.
A wheat beer for those who love outstanding and unforgettable wheat beer flavor!
Wheat beers are so versatile that the options for the food pairings are almost endless: salads, seafood, sushi, wiesswurst, sausages, goat cheese, cheese omelet and other egg dishes, pork, veal, lamb.
Excellent with strawberry shortcake, lime pie, fruit trifle and other very light dessert.
