Today’s Beer of the World comes from the Brauerei Tucher Brau (Tucher Brewery) in Nuremberg, Germany. You can find this beer at the Hollywood Brown Derby.
When I went to the website of Brauerei Tucher Brau I found a lot of information there, including the brewery’s history, recipes, etc., but Google translator was having some issues converting it all. (They do have a USA based website that is in English, but it’s kind of a mess.) Fortunately, I was at least able get their description of the Kristall Weizen:
A sparkling and tangy beer, Tucher Kristall Wheat is the somewhat different wheat beer for people who like something special. Tucher . looks crystal light, crystal clear and lovely when you pour it into the glass – because Tucher’s master brewers have the yeast filtered out of the beer.
This beer has a 5.1% ABV and does pretty well over at Beer Advocate. The site gives it a score of 91, which earns it an “Exceptional” rating. BA users give it a score of 84, which qualifies it for a “Good” rating.
I have not been to the Hollywood Brown Derby in a while. But the next time I go, given the ratings on this beer, I’d definitely give it a try. If you’ve tried it, would love to hear what you think.
