Rothaus Hefeweizen


I had tried the Rothaus Tannenzäpfle and was reasonably impressed, so when I saw they sold their hefeweizen while at Unter den Linden in Hamburg, I figured I should try it. The beer looked as I expected with a large white head and a hazy orange body. The smell presented the usual aspects of the hefeweizen with banana, wheat, and some yeast. I would describe the taste as none other than the classic German hefeweizen. There was banana, some citrus, wheaty malt, yeast, and a little pepper. This was good but I definitely wasn't blown away. This for me is where so many German beers fall short, it is good, but there are countless other beers just like it rendering it a very predictable and thus forgettable experience. If you love hefeweizens and it is reasonably priced than feel free to try it, but definitely don't go out of your way to.

Overall: 6/10

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.
