This is classic Bavarian wheat beer from a brewery near Munich. Pale yellow and hazy with unfiltered sediment (typical of the style), it’s creamy and lively with effervescence the yields a dense layer of lingering foam. Weissbier yeast is prized for the uncanny banana and clove notes it imparts, and those satisfying and complementary flavours are perfectly balanced here along with vanilla and citrus. Subtle hoppy bitterness lends structure and a dry finish. This satisfying Brau-Weisse was in my glass as Mario Gotze scored Germany’s overtime goal in the World Cup final. Hazy in appearance but clearly a winning beer.
