Description

ABV 5.5% 

This was our first and, for a long time, only type of beer after the Hofbräuhaus Traunstein was founded as a pure wheat beer brewery in 1612. Because he wanted to displace wine in the region, Elector Maximilian I created the wheat beer monopoly: although the conventional brown beer was still allowed, innkeepers always had to offer wheat beer as well. This beer was still the exception at that time, as the valuable wheat was actually reserved for bread production.

A specially bred yeast strain gives our wheat beer classic wonderfully complex fruit aromas.

In the 1980s, Hofbräuhaus Traunstein wrote a new chapter in this success story by becoming the world’s first brewery to offer wheat beer in kegs.

Honey-coloured and with all the power of our own yeast. Wonderfully refreshing, with a soft yeasty bouquet and full fruit aroma. Our masterpiece, containing all our passion – and over 400 years of brewing experience.
