Hofbrau Munchner Sommer Naturtrub

Posted: August 7, 2015 in Keller Bier/Zwickel Bier, Reviews, Staatliches Hofbräuhaus (Hofbräu München)

Over the weekend, the other half and I went to the new beer hall in Asbury. It was disappointing to say the least. It was incredibly expensive and mediocre at best and the clientele was obnoxious. I don’t think we’ll be back there any time soon. This was the first beer that I tried while I was there.

ABV: 5.1%

Style: Keller Bier/Zwickel Bier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Hofbräu München’s Münchner Sommer naturtrüb is brewed according to traditional recipes. The refreshing sparkle makes this bottom-fermented, naturally cloudy beer garden speciality an ideal alternative to Weissbier. Münchner Sommer naturtrüb has a shimmering, opalescent look and pours to an amber hue and a fine-pored head. The bottom-fermented classic offers 5.1% alcohol content and a hoppy aroma with a touch of fruitiness. It is a refreshing, sparkling drink with estery notes and a subtly bitter finish. A good alternative to Weissbier!”

Random: I always have a hard time remembering what German beers I’ve reviewed.

This beer poured with a two finger, thick, white head that dissipated slowly and left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy yellow color with high carbonation. The nose was grassy and hoppy with some light citrus. The taste was very grassy with some lemon. After a few sips, I picked up some bread as well. The flavors were very light in general. The body was very thin with high carbonation. It had a long finish with wheat and grass. This wasn’t a bad beer by any stretch, but nothing that floored me.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
