Day 169 Drink: Maisel's Weisse
Brauerei Gebruder Maisel was founded in Germany in 1887. The company is run by Jeff Maisel, the fourth generation of the family to be involved with the brewery. The company launched Maisel's Weisse in 1955 and today it is one of the largest selling Weisse beers in Bavaria.
Maisel's Weisse pours a hazy orange gold color with a large, expanding white cloud of foam. The aroma of this 5.2 percent alcohol by volume beer has hints of fruit. The flavor has a smooth malty base, a shot of cloves, a bit of banana and in the background is some refreshingly cleansing citrus.
