HELLERS Wiess und Hellers Kölsch durchlaufen identische Brauprozesse. Wobei das Wiess bereits vor der abschließenden Filtrierung entnommen wird und somit nicht „blank“ sondern hefetrüb ins Glas gelangt – was ihm seinen typisch würzig-frischen Geschmack verleiht. 4,5% vol. alc.; 11,7% Stammwürze.

Ein durchaus gutes Wiess (Leckeres Kölsch mit sehr passender Hefenote). Im Aroma schöne leicht fruchtige Noten, zudem typisches Kölsch-Aroma. Im Geschmack sehr fruchtig, erfrischend, "kölschig". Leider ein bisschen leer, könnte durchaus mehr Tiefe vertragen.

ekstedt (6082) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle (50 cl swing-top) from KeWe Getränktemarkt, Bamberg, Germany. Hazy golden, large white head. Grainy and bready malt aroma, some fruity notes with hints of vanilla, grassy and herbal hops. Light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Semi dry, medium bitterness.

Zlotta (445) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2015
0,5 l swingtop bottle from M&C Getränke, best before end of 2015. Hazy, pale straw yellow with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Slightly citric, floral-yeasty aroma with notes of bread, straw and lemon. Sweetish-fresh, floral-yeasty and slightly citric taste of straw and white bread with hints of lemon and vanilla, followed by a smooth, yeasty and minimally bitter finish. Thin to medium body, fresh and smooth mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Very easy drinking, highly refreshing and quite tasty. Extremely smooth on the palate and even somewhat floral and citric, making it so much more enjoyable than the average Kölsch. Good one!

Saeglopur (1172) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 21, 2015
500 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Amber, hazy body, with a big, quite creamy, white head.
Aroma of ripe fruits, bread, honey, sweet fruits, spices.
Tastes of grass, lemon zest, orange, yeast, spices, some bread, some herbs, subtle sweet malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes bitter, grassy, zesty, quite dry, a bit herbal, yeasty, a bit malty.

Good. Quite unique for this style, pretty fruity, but still a bit too light for my taste. Overall one of the better Kölsch beers I’ve had.

bartlebier (2746) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2015
Draught@source, the true unfiltered draw here. Keller-hazy pour. Mild proteins and dampened grasses, some blossom in a nose less aromatic than their Kölsch. Yeast is barely there in taste, adding little character and showing that their Kölsch profits from the extra cool-conditioning. No real ale traits I could pick up here and indiscernible from many a South-German Kellerbier.
