Viva Bavaria

Viva Bavaria

When we have been in the organic market in the city centre I asked someone else to decide which beer I’ll have to taste. I got the Viva Bavaria from the Riedenburger Brauhaus. It is classified as a “fest bier” but Märzen would fit as well.

It has a strong well balance body consisting of a sweat taste. The mouth feeling is very warming. Taking a nose full of its smell I would say it is a mixture of nuts, malt, caramel and some tiny rests of vinegar. The bitterness stays for quite a while giving it a festive appearance.

The foam is rapidly decaying, seems like proteins are gone. This leaves me thoughtful as the bottle label clearly states that this is an unfiltered beer, which can’t be possible looking at the colour.

Leaving me puzzled like this makes me only to drink more. A well produced organic beer from Bavaria.
