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.

Tayeth (511) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Geruch ist relativ unspektakulär, der Geschmack erinnert ziemlich stark an Nelken und erst in zweier Linie an Hefe. Nichts besonderes.

Extreme Weizengerüche, vor allem nelkig. Im Geschmack dann gut ausgewogen, ein bisschen flach, aber richtig süffig zu trinken.
