Beer of the Week #13 Festbier

Weihenstephaner's Festbier

From their website:

Saisonale, eigen eigenbraute Bierspezialität. Die lange lagerzeit macht unser Festbier zu einem ausgereiften, vollmundigen Genuss. Ein köstliches, süffiges Geschmackserlebnis zur festbierzeit

Got that? No, roughly translated it means:

Seasonal, intrinsically self-brewed specialty beer . The long storage time brings our festival beer to a mature, full-bodied pleasure. A delicious, light and sweet taste to be beer time.

Yeah, I’m not quite sure how that last sentence is supposed to be read.

From my notes:

floral, citrusy smell, delicate, thick head with large bubbles that quickly dissipates. Looks like ripe grain. Citrusy taste with wheat, malt  highlights. Hint of hops at the finish. Slight bitterness. Delicious.

Like amber waves of grain...

I really enjoyed this beer! Perfect light beer with wonderful finish when you’re celebrating the Winter holidays.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
