Description 

Brewed in the centuries-old Bavarian tradition, this unfiltered, unpasteurized Kellerbier "Cellar Beer" is shaped by temperature and time. It all begins with Riegele's special ale yeast, which harmonizes with locally grown Bavarian hops and three Jura malts. Then the beer is cold-conditioned for 30-40 days, deep in the Riegele cellar. The result, is a vitamin-rich, live yeast classic that has earned Kellerbier international awards and gold medals.

Riegele Kellerbier by Brahaus Riegele was reviewed as a BJCP Category 7C, Pale Kellerbier. The beer has a hazy, murky gold unfiltered look sitting under a dense off-white foam cap with fair retention. Moderate floral, earthy hops, faint green apple, a trace of creamed corn, mild butterscotch and clean grainy malt weave through the flavors and aromas. It starts slightly malty sweet and finishes with a moderate hop bitterness and a lingering tart, malty aftertaste. The malt flavors and aromas are medium, the yeast character is medium-plus, and the hop character is medium-low. Medium-high carbonation prickles the tongue while the yeast character leaves a slight slickness. It loses some points for overcarbonation and murkiness, but this full-flavored, rustic Kellerbier is a pleasure to drink and if given the chance, I would drink it all night.

Brewery Introduction

We love beer. As a beverage, as a philosophy. Beer is joy. Beer is community. Beer stands for a pleasurable way of life. Honorable, down to earth, non-pedantic. Although it is unbelievably variable and multi-facetted, beer, while complex, is not complicated. Whereby beer is a world unto itself,... Read More
