Sonoma Springs Brewing CompanySonoma, CA

This Weissbier contains rye (Roggen) and is a revival of an Old World Bavarian-style. Our version is at least 35% malted rye from the Bamberg region of Germany. This beer has spicy clove-like flavors created by the yeast. The fruit note in this beer is produced solely by the yeast. Slight residual sugar will often bring forth caramel-like notes which are balanced with Hal-lertauer hop varieties to provide an earthy background for such a complex brew.
