Pinkus Müller Brewery's Organic Hefeweissen

Get your Pinkus on, Fignuts! This is Pinkus Müller's Hefe. I had this sucker in the fridge for a while and finally unleashed it's unconditional fury. I even took the time to pick up a lemon for it; which I'm glad I did because the taste of this beer is pretty disappointing.

This stuff is brewed in Münster, Germany and was founded in about 1816 by Johannes Müller. It was the only brewery left there from over 100 other existing breweries at the time. It's still a family joint there and Johannes great-great-great-great-great grandkids are running it, or some shit. They got about ten beers there and are the world's first organic brewery. It's hard to find any information about the brewery itself; their website is in German and has the format of a website circa 1995. It loads really fast, so that's good.

There might be some other beer blog that rate this beer high; which makes sense because they were probably high when they reviewed it. The taste is virtually not there; that being said, you can probably wash down, like, 20 of these things and not notice it. I really doesn't even taste like beer; it tastes like seltzer water with some floral hints in it. The beer itself has a citrus scent to it; even before you put fruit in it. Very weak though, and again, floral hints to it. I picked up this 5.1% ABV bastard for $4 for a 500mL. I mean, if your looking for taste, don't pick this up. The label is pretty cool itself. It's got pictures of Johannes and Carl Müller and a picture of two drunk fruitbats drinking on a swing. If you roll up to a party with this you'll look cool in doing so, but don't give anyone a taste because they'll think you work for the LBC's LCB because it doesn't smell or taste like beer. I'd actually like to buy like 10 of these and see if I get drunk. I'll do that if I'm bored some day. Don't let the score full you, it looks cool and you can drink a shitload of it; that's about it. I assume it will also get you drunk.

Drinkability: 9/10
Taste : 2/10
Value: 4/10
Curb Appeal: 8/10

Overall: 5.75/10

  1. Muenster is a beautiful German town. It makes you think of Hansel and Gretel and pretzels.
