Description 

Take a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, with this elegant, refreshing pilsner. Our brewers created Vunderbar! with both feet grounded in tradition, focusing on authentic German pilsner malt and spicy Czech Saaz hops. The result just might get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, “Das ist Vunderbar!”

Fresh noble hops and cracker-like, lightly bready Pils malts are initially in the forefront. The hops have a tangy, floral character that sits atop an unexpected peach/pear fruitiness with a touch of honey. The flavor kicks off with a gently grainy malt that has a slight Graham cracker sweetness. The spicy hop flavor washes through as the malt fades, and the bitterness and alcohol combine to dry the finish, leaving an herbal hop
aftertaste. The aftertaste leans toward clean, spicy hops that are bitter without becoming harsh. Overall, a crisp quenching Pilsner that goes down easy.
