Degenberg Weissbier – The First wheat beer
Are you looking for the oldest wheat beer brand? Baron von Degenberg was granted in 1548 the first license worldwide to open a Weissbier/Wheat Beer brewery.
Degenberg pours as a golden rich and weighty wheat beer with fine lacey bubbles. Its perfect balance is also experienced in its malty smell, subtle undertone of clove, and layers of citrus fruit and banana. These flavours meld together brilliantly, delivering one of the most flavour filled wheat beers available. The crisp citrusy finish makes Degenberg a most refreshing draught that is so drinkable it goes perfectly with any food.
