A shark which
2018 Gold – Meininger’s International Craft Beer Award
The “Weisser Hai” (White Shark) is a dry-hopped wheat bock (see below), in which the hop plays an essential role and thus contributes to a subtile bitterness.
The white shark can be served with a hearty roast or game.
Here are the “technical” data of our brewing specialty:
Original wort: 16,6 ° P
IBU: about 35
Malt: wheat malt, barley malt (Munich, pilsner, caramel malt)
Hops: Hallertauer Comet, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh
Yeast: wheat beer yeast (top fermented)
Brewing process: decoction
Hazy and orange-yellow shining like the setting sun on the ocean, this wheat bock lies in the glass. The smell of ripe banana and lightly resinous aromas beguile the nose and whet your appetite for the first sip.
On the palate, at first, completely harmless juicy notes of banana and physalis circle the tongue. But this harmony is deceiving, because at the finish the white shark beats with another berry hops aroma, which brings the Hallertau Comet hops and reminds you of blueberries and blackcurrants.
The alcohol level of 6.8% Vol. remains deceptively in the background. But always remember: One white shark too much and they tear you to pieces!
Well chilled in a wheat or tasting glass to consciously enjoy the fresh hop aromas.
The beer style “Weizenbock”
The “Weizenbock” is a wheat beer, which has at least 16 ° P original wort, a stronger brewed wheat beer.
Wheat beer is beer brewed with at least 50% wheat malt. Names for these beers are “wheat” or “white”. “Wheat” and “white” have the same etymological origin. Wheat beers are top fermented. In Austria, Altbayern and Mark Brandenburg, wheat beers (“Weizenbier”) are also known as white beer (“Weißbier”).
Dry-hopped” means that hops were added during fermentation and maturing, which releases essentially its essential oils and gives the beer special flavors. Due to the Hallertau Comet, there are notes of dark berries (blueberry, blackcurrant, blackberry)
