Krušovice Pšeničné

Rating: 3.75

This one will be my third beer from the Royal Brewery of Krušovice, following on from their Černé and their Imperial 12°, however more surprising is the fact that this one will be my second hefeweizen to hail from the Czech Republic, following on from Primátor Weizenbier, and is another bottle that I picked up in a basement supermarket in Prague to drink back at the hotel on a recent visit to the city. From what I can gather online, the beer seems to have been released sometime during 2013 and as yet, probably has yet make it’s way out of the region never mind the country so it is one that I was lucky to get my hands on.
Krušovice Pšeničné

Appearance (4/5): Quite a cloudy wheat beer with a light golden body and a one centimetre tall, foamy white head on top that holds exceptionally well with little movement at all.
Aroma (7/10): The beer has a standard hefeweizen aroma to it with wheat and banana coming through initially, with some bubble gum to a slightly lesser extent and some nice touches of citrus as well. Some clove and orange notes made an appearance around the middle as well and the smell had a good balance to it.
Taste (7/10): Banana, clove and citrus get things started with regards to the taste, although this is quickly followed by some citrus, mainly lemon and to a lesser extent some orange too. The beer is somewhat sweet and slightly fruity throughout with a basic wheat beer taste from beginning through to the end.
Palate (4/5): Smooth bodied and about medium with a well-carbonated feel to it that seemed almost fizzy at points and could possibly have been toned down slightly but this is a minor criticism. The beer proved easy to drink, much as I was expecting given the style and it was quite refreshing into the bargain.

Overall (15/20): This offering was a good one but it wasn’t much more than a standard hefeweizen taste and not quite up to the standards of most German offerings that make it to the UK, nor was it in the same league Primátor Weizenbier either. The taste was pleasant and quite clean with a smooth, refreshing mouthfeel and some nice fruits coming through, particularly banana but I was expecting this to be slightly stronger. An enjoyable wheat beer not one I’d seek out again in future.
