Wheat is an important and typical flavor carrier in this type of beer. As with all other beers we also work at Rothaus Hefeweizen with a slightly higher original gravity of 12.5%.

In addition to the fine hop bitterness (13 bitter units), Rothaus Hefeweizen is typical of the variety, with another important flavor component, the yeast. In Hefeweizen the yeast is not mixed, but a top-fermenting yeast is used. Unlike our other beers, it comes with unfiltered wheat beer bottling.

Ingredients: water, wheat malt, barley malt, hops, hop extract, yeast.

330ml Rothaus Zäpfle made with water from the Black Forrest. I like the taste. Less banana than other german Hefeweizen. It tastes lighter and you can drink it from the bottle. Very good.

Gr0ve (2157) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2013
330 ml bottle. Cloudy deep golden. Medium off-white head. Bold banana and clove aroma. Very flavourful weissbier. Nice sparkling carbonation and a soft maltiness to balance. Some residual sweetness, but enough bittering hops and carbonation to balance.
