Advent Beer 21: Rieder Helle Weisse

Even by wheat beer standards, this Weissbier is an amazingly cloudy pour, a golden yellow haziness that looks almost like a special effect when backlit.


I toyed with the idea of squeezing in a bit of lemon, but thought better of it. Unlike a lot of wheat beers, Rieder's Helle Weisse can stand on its own. The distinct tanginess is not unpleasant, and neither enhanced nor hindered with spices. Definitely one of the better examples of the style.

  1. I have to agree, a good example of the style, very refreshing. Much better than Hoegaarden.
