Alenda Weisse | Leichte-Weisse

The summer is a time of the year that we like a lot. With longer days and higher temperatures, it's the ideal season for the sports practice on open air. Our preferred sports are swimming and cycling, physical activities that burn lots of calories and mineral salts. For the reposition of these minerals, there's nothing better than a fresh, non-pasteurized, artesanally produced beer. And it was with that thought that we created Alenda Leichte-Weisse, a low ABV Weissbier that was brewed according to the traditional methods used by the best Bavaria breweries, which are: decoction, fermentation on open tanks (Dekoktionsverfahren und Gärung im offenen Bottich) and bottle refermentation.

  • Look: straw/pale yellow color, turbid, with a great formation of a creamy and lasting white head;

  • Taste: a very light seasoned aroma is perceived, with highlights to the clove;
  • Mouthfeel: very light body, high carbonation, dry and short finish;
  • Overall: a very light beer with a great drinkability. Besides being a wheat beer, it doesn’t bloats you, exactly according what the label says. The interesting about this beer is that it is recommended to be consumed after sports practice.
