Review: Weihenstephaner 2009 Festbier

Weihenstephan claims to be the world’s oldest brewery. This is the company’s newest beer, a 2009 “Festbier” for this year’s holiday season.

Festbier is a relatively light, golden brew, but one that’s full of flavor. There’s rich maltiness on the initial attack, then lots of grain character and some robust spice on the palate that’s not overpowering. The finish is big and “German” — an Oktoberfest beer if ever I’ve tasted one.

5.8% alcohol.

B+ / $2.50 per 12-oz. bottle / brauerei-weihenstephan.de

  1. I have been to The “Weis’n” many times……Deutschland even more. And I never even heard of This Brew. In an Irish Pub in Boston, I was introduced. I fell In Love! One of the Best, of The Best, Beers in The World!
