COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BOLTENs Ur-Weizen war 1997 bei der Einführung das erste obergärige Weißbier in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Man könnte meinen, dies sei eine Majestätsbeleidigung, da die eigentliche Heimat des Weißbieres zweifelsohne in Bayern liegt. Gleichwohl – und unsere bayrischen Kollegen mögen uns dieses nachsehen – haben wir uns entschlossen ein Weißbier am Niederrhein herzustellen, weil ein solches Bier ebenfalls obergärig eingebraut wird und wir meinen, von obergärigen Bieren ein klein wenig zu verstehen.

Also gesagt, getan, das Resultat lässt sich sehen und vor allem schmecken, denn zur Freude aller – mit Ausnahme ein paar bayrischer Kollegen – erzielte Boltens Ur-Weizen bei der ersten DLG-Prämierung gleich das, wonach viele Wettbewerber lange Jahre trachten, die Gold-Medaillie.

BOLTENs Ur-Weizen wird mit hellem Weizen- und Gerstenmalz eingebraut und bleibt hefetrüb-naturbelassen, wird also nicht filtriert. So entsteht ein spritzig-frisches Weizenbier, das nicht nur im Sommer hervorragend schmeckt.

Zutaten: Wasser, Weizenmalz, Gerstenmalz, Hopfenextrakt, Bolten-Hefe

kapusil (1505) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 3, 2017
0.5l bottle. Hazy pale golden body with an enormous white head. The aroma is unusually grainy for a hefeweizen. With it's doughy yeast character it's almost like a kellerbier, but it also has some lemon zest, cloves and earthy hops. Taste of bread, grains, hay, yeast, clove, peach and quite a lot of spicy hops. Its hop profile is like an altbier's and it's only a bit fruity so it's not similar to the weizens of Bavaria at all. OK beer, but it's not how I picture a hefeweizen.

Zlotta (3809) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2017
0.5 l bottle from local ’trinkgut’, best before November 2017. Hazy, luscious yellow with a large, dense, stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity aroma of wheat, banana, dough and some clove. Sweetish, malty, moderately yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of wheat, banana, light citrus and some vanilla, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Decent Weizen although it lacks a lot of that typical yeast character you can find in the archetypal Hefeweizen.
