COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My interpretation of a typical Bavarian wheat, refined with a little bit more hops and the intense aroma of our very own wheat beer yeast. Bold and surprising.
Typical but yet so different. Deep cassis notes mix with Oriental spices and create a fruity, spicy finish.

I invite you to enjoy a refreshing treat for all your senses.

Yours,
Jeff Maisel

Maker: Brauerei Gebr. Maisel Bayreuth, Germany *** Beer: Maisel & Friends Jeff’s Bavarian Ale (bottled, unfiltered, 750ml) *** Style: Weizenbock (strong cloudy wheat) *** ALC.VOL.: 7.1% *** "My interpretation of a typical Bavarian wheat, refined with a little bit more hops and the intense aroma of our very own wheat beer yeast. Bold and surprising. Typical but yet so different. Deep cassis notes mix with Oriental spices and create a fruity, spicy finish." (Jeff Maisel) *** Colour: Deep hazy amber, with a medium, frothy off-white head. *** Nose: Oranges, banana, spices, yeast, a hint of vinegar and medicinal notes. *** Texture: Full body, yet a still a bit watery. Moderate carbonation. *** Taste: Grapefruit, banana, clove, a surprising pinewood note (the brewer said it was more aggressively hopped than most weizen beers) at the start. Strong herbs, too. The alcohol blends in astonishingly smoothly. Hoppier in the middle, even resinous towards the finish. Some vanilla there, too. Aftertaste is predominantly yeasty, lemony and moderately bitter. *** Impressions: When did you last hear about a cloudy wheat with resinous notes? Well, this is one, and it’s a very good, and very imaginative, wheat bock that is never cloying, but even refreshing. Complex flavours at the start peter out a little towards the end (wheat beers usually do). But first-rate!

Ufiltræret Ale, som er fin som sommer øl, lidt bitter eftersmag, men ellers en fornuftig øl.

Bij het brouwen eindelijk een fatsoenlijk bier. Oranje, dun maar prima schuim. Ruikt lekker naar rozenbottel. Ook in de smaak, wel lekker!

I think we tried this at Weinstubbe Pizzini in Bamberg. Fruity and hoppy smell. Similar taste with some caramel. Malty and hoppy.
