Episode 104 – Georg Schneider’s Wiesen Edel Weisse
The weizen, or Weissbier variety of beers were originally served at Oktoberfest – when the festival was still in October. A little higher in ABV than the Marzen, they were meant to warm the drinkers. The Wiesen Edel Weisse from Georg Schneider is a Certified Organic weissenbeir. Georg Schneider suffered losses during WWII, but came back to continue the tradition of brewing Weissbier, and are credited with saving the style. This particular wheat beer scores nice and high.
