Brauerei Carl Wittmann Reviews

Wittmann Dahoam
(bottle, 33cl, with thanks to Quack-Duck!) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Slightly biscuity and delicately buttery malty aroma with flowery, slightly grassy and subtle fruity hops. Sweet and mildly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly biscuity malt character with shades of honey and present hoppy notes, including grassy and herbal spicy accents, lingering into the sweet and mildly hop bitter finish with traces of booze. Likeable pale Bock, unfortunately filled into a green glass bottle. 20.VII.16

Wittmann Hefe-Weisse
Tap. Moderate aromas of grain and cereal for the malt, herbs for the hops, dough for the yeast, with banana and clove in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is hazy yellow. Flavor starts lightly sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and slightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick, with a lively carbonation. An excellent Hefeweisse for a brotzeit.

Wittmann Urhell
Bottle purchased and consumed at Freising Train Station, Bavaria, best by 9/30/16, consumed Nov. 2015: Beaming golden. Stiff, fluffy foam. Defective nose of canned peas, decaying hay, fusel alcohol, jelly candy and DMS. Hint of flowery Hallertauer. Restrained carbonation leaves a foamy residue on the tongue. Soft lemony and floral hops are soon hushed by husky and simplistic pils malt. Light DMS gives a fuzzy vegetal characteristic which adds weight and muddles things. Soggy white bread and damp hay emerge from the sloppy malt. Prickly, indiscreet alcohol and rotting Red Delicious apple notes further mar things. Wet, soapy and paintlike finish shows a touch of flowers, but it’s quite dull and the malt remains rather limp and husky. Fairly dirty aftertaste of grain husks and metal. Very industrial and seems carelessly made.

Wittmann Dahoam
Big thanks to quack-duck for that one! Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts milder than exspected, more and more hoppy-grasy, some soapy notes. Sharp alcoholic background. Finish could be more balanced. Still grasy with soapy notes. Not my favourite.

Can 8 of the Costco Advent Calendar. I’m liking this a lot more than I thought I would, as several of the previous cans in this collection were underwhelming and this one was a gusher. Fairly prominent malt character, somewhat sweet taste with nicely bittered finish.

Can from day 8 of the advent calendar. Pours a very clear golden color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has quite a bit of corn to it, with the classic lager smell. Taste is slightly sweet with a hint of earthiness. Nothing remarkable at all.

Wittmann Urhell
Mainly yellow 500 ml can labeled "Unser Original". It’s stamped on the bottom with a production date of July 2015 and a EXP(iration) date of Sept. 2016. 4.9% ABV . Appearance: pale golden body; clear and topped with a large, frothy white head that makes me think of whipped egg whites. The head is very durable and plenty of sticky white lacing is left on the glass. Aroma: Lightly sweet; mix of mild malts and stronger, spicy hops; hints of biscuits and lemon. Flavor: Lightly sweet. Spicy hops with lemon and hints of baked bread and caramel. Light body and medium carbonation.

Wittmann Urhell
This is a pretty solid Bavarian lager. It’s golden w/ a huge head. This is definitely very much bready malt forward w/ just a twinge of grassy hops. It’s nice and drinkable w/ fairly light body and vigorous carbonation. It finishes w/ some grassy bitterness in the finish. I am not strictly in love w/ the hop character on this but it is otherwise a good beer.

Wittmann Winterbier
A mid Amber gold coloured beer with a thick and frothy head. A light, spicy and fruity aroma, with a background maltiness. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off tart, pithy citrus fruit, then a dry spicy flavour, peppery, and a touch of clove is then followed by a dry dusty malt flavour that adds a biscuity element to the background. The finish continues with the tart fruity flavour. Bottle fro Getränke Central, Lohmühlback, Freising.

500ml can pours a clear golden color with a generous white head with decent retention that settles to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some spice and grains. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a typical helles lager with a bit more bite to it. Recommended.

Wittmann Schwarz-Weisse
Vollmundig-malziger Antrunk. Dieses Aroma verstärkt sich zum Hauptteil hin noch etwas, hinzu kommt eine angenehme malzige Süße. Im Nachgeschmack sind einige leichten Röstmalzanklänge zu spüren, hinzu kommt noch eine interessante Säuerlichkeit, die sich aber mit der (röst-)malzigen Note lange auf der Zunge hält.
--> leckeres dunkles Weizen.

Schön malzig-süßlicher Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süß-malzig und schön vollmundig. Das Bier macht schon im Antrunk einen dickflüssig-sirupartigen Eindruck. Zum Hauptteil wird der dunkle Doppelbock röstmalzig-schokoladig. Eine Herbe ist nicht wahrnehmbar. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr lang-anhaltend, schön malzig-wärmend und angenehm süß.
--> Toller Doppelbock, keine alkoholische Schärfe und eine schöne abgewogene Süße! Tolles Bier!

Neutraler, leicht malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig und süßlich-malzig. Zum Hauptteil hin macht das Bier einen konzentrierten Eindruck - sehr süß-malzig überladen, dabei frische Hopfenblumigkeit. Der Nachgeschmack wird wieder angenehmer, schön röstmalzig mit leichter Hopfenfrische und angenehm abgewogener Herbe.
--> Interessantes Bier, aber der konzentriert-überladene Mittelteil bleibt vorherrschend.
