This beer is an old Bavarian beer specialty. Helles Hefe Weizen, literally translated, means "light wheat with yeast." You may be familiar with the term "dunkel," (pronounced dune-kuhl) which means "dark"—the counterpoint to light, helles beers. This beer is the perfect warm-weather beer due to its crisp, clean and refreshing, thirst quenching nature. To fully enjoy the flavors of this beer, we encourage you to pour about 2/3rds of the bottle into the appropriate weizen glass, then vigorously swirl the remainder in the bottle to rouse and collect the sedimentary layer at the bottom of the bottle, then finish your pour. Seriously, Tucher Bräu holds a patent on the process of keeping cloudy, yeasty beers stable—all so you can enjoy this bottled beer as if it was drawn from a just-tapped keg—so don't undermine their efforts or deprive yourself of your daily dose of B-vitamins, you'll be getting a good dose of them from that yeast. Look for notes of melon, wheat (surprise!) and banana on the nose, with just a touch of clove spiciness and a hint of peach skins. Expect a firm wheat twang upfront with muted apple & nearly-ripe banana notes, and a late-breaking, very subtle bitter melon-character (like biting too deeply into a watermelon wedge and getting a nibble of the inside rind), moving to a remarkably thirst-quenching, slightly spicy, mildly bitter, dry finish. For the perfect weekend breakfast treat, pair with weissewurst. Good morning, world! You could do this on the weekdays, too, assuming you take public transportation to work and don't have any morning face-to-face meetings… Also works well with wiener schnitzel or mild Indian dishes.
