Brewery: Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH
Style: German Weizenbock
Other Notes: 2015 Limited Edition available from mid-March 2015.
Brewer Description: (from tag on bottle) “Mathilda Soleil” – the unique special edition, named after our strong-minded head of the brewery, Mathilde Schneider (in 1907 she presented Bavaria’s first wheat doppelbock). Her pioneering spirit is our claim today – thanks to this new, specially cultivated hops, this special and limited wheat beer edition brings a sparkling and unique treat. It is spicy and nutty with a sunny and refreshing note of apples, pears and quince and still has a dry and drinkable finish – it is the perfect drink for sunny afternoons just by itself or to paired with lightly spicy or with nutty dishes. Cheers, Mathilda!
