We'll go to the world's oldest brewery for our beer of the week this week, Weihenstephaner Kristall Weizenbock. This is a new and limited edition beer from ye 'ol boys from Germany. Here's what they have to say about it:
For our Kristallweizenbock we were trying to combine various hop sorts offering distinctive aroma notes that are pairing well with the aroma coming from our signature yeast W68 and at the same time build a bridge to the Crystal (Kristall) as the hop varieties used for 2nd and 3rd hop addition, Opal, Smaragd (Emerald) and Saphir (Sapphire) are each either crystals or crystalline minerals. The hop bouquet in this brew is rounded off by Hallertauer Perle being used as bittering hop during the first hop addition. The result is a unique beer that we have brewed back in the middle of the last century before and which was forgotten about unfortunately within the last decades. We are proud to offer this remarkable beer style to you as it reflects the liaison of tradition and our state of the art brewing.
