We’ve got a soft spot for the fellow “hackers” at Munich’s Hacker-Pschorr brewery, and now we’re even more excited now that Hacker-Pschorr Weissbier is available for the first time in cans after 600 years of operation. “The new lightweight can features an updated new look celebrating the brands unique heritage, tradition and superior taste,” says the company.
The beer hasn’t changed, but let’s taste this iconic brew from its new container anyway.
As wheat beers go, this one hits all the highlights. Gently musty, it’s heavy with wheat grain notes, with a layer of coriander and orange peel on top. Bold in body, with a fairly thick muscularity on the palate, the beer offers a lengthy finish that sees hints of lemongrass and a touch of dusky hemp rope. Still a wholly solid example of the style.
