Brewer's Advent 2023 Day 18: Kuchlbauer - Alte Liebe Dunkle Weisse

Beer and Art

The playful, ornate, colorful tower of Kuchlbauer Brewery in Bavaria is visible from afar. Connoisseurs can immediately recognize that Friedensreich Hundertwasser was at work here. Vibrant colors, round shapes, dancing windows, uneven floors, and onion domes are typical elements of his work.

Hundertwasser designed the 70-meter high tower in 1999. Unfortunately, his original plan could not be realized, but his design served as inspiration for the new planning and implementation in 2007. Inside this illustrious structure lies the Kuchlbauer Beer World.

Wheat Beer for Nine Generations

Michael Salleck leads Kuchlbauer Brewery, a genuine family business, today. With him, the ninth generation is at the helm. Kuchlbauer exclusively brews wheat beer; there are no bottom-fermented lagers in the brewery’s range.

‘Alte Liebe’

‘Alte Liebe’ (Old Love) is - we are not surprised - a wheat beer. It is dark. In ancient times, all beers were dark - only when technological innovations of the Industrial Revolution made it possible to produce pale malt did beers become light, and the dark ones were forgotten. ‘Alte Liebe’, the dark wheat beer from Kuchlbauer Brewery is a tribute to the brewing art of old times.

‘Alte Liebe rostet nicht,’ they say in Germany, meaning 'Old love doesn't rust.'

Cheers!

So we can blame the Industrial Revolution for ruining beer, eh? I like the flavor of this one partly because it isn’t a polished, drinkable brew.

Like others, I received the Ladenburger weizenbock, not the Dunkelsweiss. For the weizenbock, it had no head, and very low carbonation, so I’m a bit disappointed.

Yep, I’ve all but given up on the app, very few have matched, seems like a lot from last year. Disappointing enough to not buy the calendar next year

I got the Hoamat Weißbier too. Nice Weizen - but weird rating something that is not what I’m supposed to be rating. Maybe the Dunkelweizen will show up later?

Disappointed again with a substitute. This seems to be the theme for the Company.

Since I opened the box knew I didn’t have this one either. 0-2 on dunkel weiß. My favorite beer since my daughter found these when she was studying in Germany. Oh well subbed in my Wiener Lager. It’s a little heavier than a helles.

In my calendar in the US, this is a very soft carbonation dunker Weiss. Great nose and mouth feel, nice beer for beside the fire. 4.

Correct brewery but wrong beer.

Landgang Pils...this is getting rather redundant with pale or golden lagers and pilsners dominating the case. They are not bad beers but I bought this to experience a spectrum of German beers. Disappointing.

Serious disappointment would have rather had the Bier in the video instead got a pils from Hamburg. It's OK but boring. I rate it a 3
