Beer style: bock beer
The Berliners among you should be familiar with the name August Borsig, but we would like to introduce the gentleman to everyone else. Johann Friedrich August Borsig is the namesake of a very special beer specialty from Schneeeule. In addition, the native of Breslau founded the Borsigwerke in Berlin, which today house the sacred halls of the Schneeeule brewery.
But now to the beery cousin of Mr. Borsig: August is a dark bock beer with a pleasant 6.5% alcohol content and the acidity so typical of Berlin beers. In Schneeeule’s wide range of different Berliner Weisses, August is a delicious exception, even if he has adapted to his colleagues with his repertoire of sour taste notes.
August shows itself in a wonderful copper-colored mahogany tone in the glass and is crowned by a small hand’s breadth of hazelnut-brown foam. A wonderful scent of summer fruits, wild berries and sour, still unripe plums tickles your nose. The first taste is full-bodied and wonderfully sour: notes of heavy, dark grapes, roasted, caramel malt and sweet wild berries meet a crisp acidity reminiscent of fine balsamic vinegar and champagne. The bock is unusually light-footed and, thanks to the sparkling carbonic acid, bubbles wonderfully fresh on the tongue.
A truly exceptional buck that you should definitely try!
