Alenda Weisse | Heller Rauchweizendoppelbock

Once we were on the porch tasting a Rauchweizen and, after that, a Heller Weizenbock. We looked at those two bottles and thought: let's make a combination of these two little beauties... So we created a Heller Rauchweizendoppelbock, a light-colored beer that contains 95% of smoked malt on its recipe, being 60% of those wheat malt that was smoked using oak firewood. Be careful! It's a Weizendopplebock, so it's alcohol content may make you joyful before the third bottle. (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)

  • Beer: Heller Rauchweizendoppelbock
  • Style: Heller Rauchweizendoppelbock (34B. Mixed-Style Beer - 9A. Doppelbock + 6B. Rauchbier)
  • ABV: 7.7%
  • IBU: 15
  • Brewery:
  • Look: dark orange color, turbid, with a great creamy white head formation that leaves marks on the glass.
  • Aroma: banana notes are very present, but there is some smokiness that is present as well and that takes over the beer’s aroma as it heats on the glass. very light presence of clove.
  • Taste: a very traditional weiss-like flavor profile, bringing banana and clove notes. Here, the smokiness is in a lower level, appearing as a secondary flavor.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-high body, high carbonation and a dry and long finish.
  • Overall: Really good weiss. Alenda has some of the best weiss beers of the country, and they surely didn’t let down on this one.
