When I developed the headline for this fantastic German beer, it occurred to me, that I could have used several different ways to present Tap 4. Yes, it's organic, but it's also a wheat beer and a strong beer. It's full name is Tap 4 Mein Grünes, but that's hard to write. At the end of the day, it's just an awesome beer.
One of the things I liked the most about this wheat beer was the excellent carbonation. I could feel a fizzy tingling on my tongue with every mouthful. It kind of reminded me of Pop Rocks but not nearly as intense. It was a pretty unique experience. Unlike any of the beers I've had to date.
Tap 4 is an unfiltered beer that has a beautiful apricot color and a slight fruity flavour. It has a nice foamy head that settles into a consistent foamy layer that stayed to the bottom of the glass. At 6.2% alcohol, I was shocked to learn that it's a strong beer. Most strong beers have a sickly sweet taste, but this one was just yummy.
Carolyn encouraged me to drink this beer on a Sunday morning with an empty stomach. It was delicious and it made my head spin. I guess that's what happens at 8:30 AM.
Brewed by Germany's oldest wheat beer brewery Schneider & Sohn, Tap 4 was brewed from 1966 - 1944 for Oktoberfest only. In 1999, it was brought back and bottled for the broader market, and I'm sure glad they did!
I give this Wiesen Edel-Weisse 5 burps. I really loved this beer. In fact, as soon as I finished it I wanted another. When you see it, get it.
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
