Gaffels Sonnenhopfen wird mit handverlesenem Citra-Hopfen eines Jahrgangs aus dem sonnigen Yakima Valley im Nordwesten der USA eingebraut. Unter Beachtung des Deutschen Reinheitsgebotes haben unsere Braumeister ein außergewöhnliches und vollmundiges Hopfenbier, begleitet von einer erfrischenden dezenten Citra-Note geschaffen.

Als das Sonnenhopfen damals rauskam hab ich mich gleich draufgestürzt und war schwer enttäuscht. Nichts von Citra, stattdessen dumpf-muffig, brotig. Ausgehend von den vielen positiven Kommentaren hier sollte ich ihm vielleicht noch eine Chance geben.

Bottle@Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland. Medium aroma with fresh notes of sweet grains citrus and hops. Mild yellow color with small white head and semi-hazy liquid. Light taste with grain some citrus and hint of hops. Medium balanced. Med/narrow taste spectrum and short malty aftertaste. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall very decent kölsch with bit lame hoppy twist. Aroma gave more expectations.
