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.
