- Tasting - Gutmann Hefeweizen

Hefeweizen goes well with Brotzeit - Gutmann Helles Hefeweizen

Gutmann Hefeweizen

While sitting in a pizzeria in my hometown I was listening to a conversation a guy was having with the pizzeria owner. He was trying to convince the owner that he should switch his beer supplier to Gutmann. He argued that the wheat beer from the current supplier is simply bad and that the other supplier is just better. Ok, there could be many arguments for pro and con but it is always a matter of personal taste. Some thousands will like this beer, some thousands will prefer that beer.

When got the first 100 fans at our Facebook fanpage I put a Gutmann Hefeweizen into the fridge to celebrate the day. After letting it cool it was finally time for a tasting.

When you open it the aroma almost flies into your nose. There is much malt & esters, and once it is in the right glass you will have a whole lot of foam on top of a yeast golden beer.

The Gutmann Helles Hefeweizen is full of body - a little too much body probably. The taste starts with a little sweetness, continues with salt and some acid and ends with a low bitterness.

While drinking this beer I got very hungry and prepared a bowl of pasta salad, which went very well with the beer.

I can’t emphasis this often enough: Wheat beer is a perfect beer for a German “brotzeit”.
