Beer Review: Weizenzäpfle – Rothaus

Another little takeaway beer from the folks at Tracks, one of my local railway arch bars. Almost all the reviews so far have focused on craft beer in the UK but I believe this will be the first beer from the continent, specifically Germany. Quite a popular brand, this is Rothaus, who predominantly produce wheat beers. For this review we’ve got ‘Weizenzäpfle’ at 5.4% ABV.

Visually the beer pours autumnal gold in colour. Forms a great thick head, that maintains itself well as you drink down. On the aroma you get an orchard like waft, with super fruity on the nose. Lots of peach in the smell is super pleasant. It is most certainly a wheat beer and that fresh tasting creaminess is super evident. There is a fruity sweetness throughout the beer. Very smooth drinking,

A quick note on the bottle art: A very classic label at the top of the bottle with a more modern take for the main part. An almost slight cubist style Oktoberfest bar maid.

Wheat beers are certainly growing on me and I think it’s nice for venues to have one as an option because they are super unique and can be incredibly tasty. This is a really solid beer for me personally super fruity and a good sweetness. If the beer gardens could have opened during that June/July heatwave I can see this being ideal. If you’ve ever had a Blue Moon, this is a better version of that!

Score: 7.5/10

Thanks for reading! Cheers!
