Brewed by Park & Bellheimer AG Brewery
Style: German Hefeweizen
Brewed by Park & Bellheimer AG Brewery from the small city of Pirmasens (pop:40,125) in the Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, near the border with France, and named in honour of St Valentine (The guy in the bottle!), patron saint of lovers everywhere, but I have no idea if he was big into his beers.
Review: 0.5l bottle of Valentins Hefeweissbier Premium: ABV: 5.3%
Should be served in a Weizen glass, that is if you have one. I dont!
Brewed in the great traditions of monastic brewing and of course the Bavarian purity law of 1516.
Frothy on pour which settles very well. Hazy golden-amber colour
Decent sized white head and maintains throughout. Not a bad looking beer.
Nice balanced and pleasant smell of your typical weisbier of yeast, wheat, clove, and banana as well, albeit all smells were a little faint.
On taste has all the typical Hefeweizen tastes but on a very low level. Light yeasts, malts, the cloves, the wheat, and banana flavours.
Nice creamy mouthfuls. Creamy. Not much standout taste though, very subtle flavours. Not really bitter or strong aftertaste.
Very nice, inoffensive and well rounded, and very smooth, VERY SMOOTH. I’d imagine it would be a nice beer to pair with some good food on a nice hot day.
Nice on the tongue and finishes light and smooth, very drinkable for me at least who isn’t the biggest fan of weisbier’s! An OK beer.
