Situated in Bavaria, the most famous brewing region in the world, the small community of Krombach is home to just over 2,000 people. However the beer that carries its name needs no introduction and is known the world over.
Krombacher released their weizen beer into the worldin 2007, stronger than the pils at 5.3%, it is an amber coloured wheat with a classic haze from the yeast making the texture cloudy. It contains Krombacher’s locally sourced spring water and has Hallertau hops and wheat, caramel and barley malts. A pure yeast strain and a full fermentation guarantee a wheat taste like no other. The aroma is that of banana and honey, courtesy of the malts and the taste is mild and soft whilst bursting with flavour. This can be served around 8 °C and can accompany lighter dishes such as seafood and salads as well as poultry.
