Kiesbye’s Waldbier 2012: Zirbe

Kiesbye’s BIERkulturHAUS
Formerly brewed at Trumer Privatbrauerei Josef Sigl
Obertrum, Austria
7.5% Specialty Grain | 20 Ratings | Special Release |
Schon die Kelten verfeinerten ihre Biere mit den Schätzen des Waldes. Gemäß dieser Tradition wurde das Waldbier 2012 durch die Zugabe von hocharomatischen Zirbenzapfen (Zirbelnüsse) veredelt. Die Zirbe als hochalpines Kieferngewächs ist ein österreichisches Naturkulturgut. Sie trotzt extremen Temperaturschwankungen und kann bis zu 1000 Jahre alt werden! Für das Waldbier 2012 wurden rund 10 kg Zirbenzapfen auf 2000 Metern Seehöhe aus dem Tiroler Radurschltal zu einer köstlichen Bierspezialität eingebraut. Diese streng limitierte Wadlbier-Edition ist 100% naturbelassen und unfiltriert. Sie zeichnet sich durch eine leicht rauchig-harzige Note aus, hat einen waldhonigartigen, leicht minzigen Körper und entfaltet die beste Qualität nach 1-2 Jahren. Das Waldbier 2012 harmoniert perfekt zu süßlich-aromatischen Wild- und Waldgerichten z.B. Schwammerl, zu allen Kartoffelspeisen sowie fruchtigen Desserts.
