Year Round

Once upon a time, Weissbier could only be brewed by ducal privilege. Hofbräuhaus enjoyed this exclusive right for nearly 200 years, thus holding a monopoly on Weissbier in Bavaria.

But even without a monopoly, Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is a really special kind of beer. Characterized by its sparkling rich foam and naturally by its unforgettable refreshing and fruity taste. It is brewed according to an ancient tradition and offers an alcoholic content of approximately 5.1% by volume. Savor the pure, refreshing enjoyment!

Type: Top-fermented Weissbier, aka Weizenbier (from Weizen = wheat)

Look
Cloudy blonde in color.
Smell
Nice malty wheat with hints of very light fruit.
Taste
The perfect balance of water, hops and malt. Slight banana notes and full of flavor that make this brew a favorite of mine.
Feel
Medium to full beer.
Drinkability
This is my favorite Hefe by far, it has exactly what you look for in this style and doesn't overdue any feature. If I had keg of this I could drink this all day.
