Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Brewery:
Two countries, separated by a distance of around 10,000 kilometres – and united by a common passion for brewing beer. The traditional Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan and the US craft beer pioneers Sierra Nevada now announce their joint venture, “Braupakt”. The beer to be produced under this “brewing pact” is a fruity, hoppy Hefeweissbier based on the venerable Hallertauer Tradition hop strain and given a sophisticated twist with the addition of US Amarillo and Chinook hops.

Tasting Notes:
This naturally cloudy amber Hefeweissbier has a firm, creamy head and reveals fragrances of peach, apricot and citrus on the nose. The initial impression on the palate is of a bouquet of aromas, including subtle touches of banana plus refreshing grapefruit from the American Chinook hops. The fruity peach and apricot notes from the Amarillo hops are balanced by the gentle sweetness of the caramel malt. The beer has a delicate tartness that melds into a harmonious mouthfeel on the finish.

Analysis (approximate):
• Original gravity 14.5%
• ABV ~ 6.0%
• Malt: wheat malt, light and dark barley malt, caramel malt
• Hops: ~ 21 IBU

Excellent when paired with exotic and spicy-hot fish, meat and seafood dishes.
