St. Norbert follows the tradition of cooking ales - wheat beers in Bohemia. This beer is manufactured using the oldest procedure for beer cooking – top fermentation – documented in our territory from 505 when Petr Vok of Rožmberk granted to the Town of T?ebová the right to cook ales. Wheat beers are currently experiencing a renaissance, and they are loved for their lightness and freshness, especially in summer months. Also, the fans of less bitter beer love it for its low content of hops.
This beer is non-filtered, with a content of ale yeasts causing dullness and, furthermore, with a content of wheat malt (50%) which causes the light color. The yeast of the natural top fermentation produces esters and phenols, which develop a wide palette of aromatic tones and flavors. For example, we can find here – rose-apple, nutmeg apple, vanilla, bananas and from citruses to smoked scents. Czech beers of the Pilsen type are characteristic with their typical bitterness (35–45 units of bitterness) are an opposite to wheat beers, which have 10–17 units of bitterness.
The St. Norbert wheat beer is a very brisk and refreshing drink.
