Weihenstephaner hefeweissbier dunkel

A gift from Kennhyn during his ‘Microbrewery Tour 2008′. I received this after we met at Brewerkz Riverside Point, our first stop of the day.

Took a careful look on the bottle, all in zee Germans, 500ml bottle @ 5.3% ABV, ~ RM20 according to Kennhyn, not cheap ! Expired on 06.12.08, clearly this weissbier is not meant to keep. Good for me !

Tried this after dinner. Light chestnut brown (much lighter than appeared in the picture), cloudy and non-penetrable to light. Citrusy with hints of herbs and roasted coffee on the nose. light-bodied, dry, can’t detect much in the mouth, except some delightful hops. Complex and long aftertaste for a beer with light spices, nuts, herbs and more hops.

Weihenstephaner is one of the OLDEST brewery still in operation which originated from a Munich monastery dated back to 1040. I am drinking history, thanks !

    The W-Dunkel has always been my fav. Although not highly rated by the other sites… It still stands tall in my mind… love it absolutely.

    I’ve had Dunkel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunkel) a few times and I must say its a nice taste. However these days I stick to Paulaner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulaner) mostly because it comes in a ‘dark’ and ‘light’ variety that just excites the palate. Sounds like a load of hogwash, but its the truth (you ‘premium’ beer drinkers out there would know what I’m talking about).
