Hacker-Pschorr brewery was established in 1417 in Munich and is now owned by Paulaner. The brewery uses only the finest Bavarian barley and wheat malts, noble hops from Germany and Bohemia, and spring water from the Alps to brew its beers.
Hacker-Pschorr Weisse is brewed with 60 percent wheat and 40 percent barley malt. After it’s finished fermenting at warm temperatures, it is aged for a short time at cold temperatures. It is unfiltered, which provides a hazy yellow color with an off-white, feathery head. This is a classic example of a wheat beer with a wheat and estery aroma. The flavor is crisp, clean and well-balanced.
