Description 

Many refer to this as the "King of Extinct German Beer Styles". It is a Northern German beer style popular 300 years ago. Seedstock’s Broyhan is very pale, similar in color to a young white wine, with a light wine aroma and a pleasantly sweet, yet acidic taste. Seedstock adds wheat to the grain bill, which delivers a nice mouthfeel balanced by slight tartness and a crisp finish. French hops provide a pleasant backbone for this refreshing beer.

Broyhan by Seedstock Brewery is being judged based on independent research of the style as a category 27 Historical Beer.

Broyhan is a beer that falls within the Northern European wheat beer tradition, which includes witbier & gose and, historically, appears it may have been wheat driven. At any rate, the beer is a mostly clear pale straw color. The head falls surprisingly fast, even with the ample carbonation. The nose has an oddly bretty presentation and not much in the way of hop aroma, aside form an odd perfumey quality. On tasting, it's fairly one dimensional, just fermented wheat and malt. It does seem quite dry and has some light fermentation complexity with a suggestion of tartness. Light bodied and easy drinking, I can't help but wonder, beyond an academic exercise, what this beer's real purpose is, as it really drinks akin to a modern American lager. Fun to try but really lacks much to keep the drinker engaged.
