Störtebeker Roggen-Weizen





































If you aren't familiar with pirate the pirate Störtebeker and his legendary execution you should read up when you get a chance. Apparently his name means "empty the mug with one gulp" in Low Saxon. In honor of this notorious rapscallion are several beers bearing his name brewed by Stralsunder Brauerei.

This rye weizen mix had been intriguing me on various grocery store shelves for awhile because of its uniqueness in style compared to the other offerings here. It poured a dark red brown with a thick white head. It looked like a rusty hefeweizen. I could smell roast and pretzel mainly and some floral hops. It tasted interesting with many malt flavors of molasses and toffee as well as some spice and tartness. I found this beer fairly interesting and I am going to pick these up occasionally.

Overall: 8/10

About Colin Smith

Hi, I'm Colin, I love a good hoppy IPA, but I can find immense enjoyment in a solid session beer, imperial stout, quadrupel or a nostalgic beer from my past.
