Weihenstephan Weihenstephaner 1516 | Craft Beer Review

From Germany with love well actually from my buddy Gary, but either way the Weihenstephaner 1516 from Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan is a beer that I recently had the pleasure to enjoy as the subject of this latest beerventure. The Kellerbier itself has an ABV of 5.6% and an IBU of 25. As far as appearance this beer proved to pour a brilliant golden color, as far as aroma it offered great notes of fruit and as for taste, just a pure delight in my opinion as it was as smooth as could be. My Untappd rating for this one was an easy 4.5 and one that I will drink again at some point for sure. Check out my video here though to see my other thoughts.

Brewer Notes:

The Weihenstephaner 1516 is a bright amber colored cellar beer with a fruity-fresh hop flower, a full-bodied body and a pleasant caramel. In the brewing process of the 1516, the Braumeister have considered the traditional way of producing a marten beer. For example, the beer of dark Munich and bright Pilsner malt, combined with traditional Hallertauer hop varieties, such as the rare variety Hallertauer Record, matures long and cold in the historic vaulted cellars on the Weihenstephaner mountain and is not filtered before bottling. Due to the long storage, the bottom fermented yeast naturally settles on the ground and the beer thus obtains an opal opacity and a balanced taste.
Fits with grilled meats and fish, roasts, cheese as well as other hearty dishes.

The Weihenstephaner in 1516 was honored in honor of the 500-year Bavarian purity and is offered only seasonally, at the spring time.

Brewed with the centuries-long beer experience at the Weihenstephaner mountain.
