4.33/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Beautiful golden color, hazy throughout. The head is thick, creamy, and dense, and retains well.

Smell: Very crisp and fresh, some slight fruity undertones.

Taste: Truly exceptional. A strong, wheaty taste with some notes of citrus and flour and a slight bitter hit of hops. Finishes very crisp and smooth. The texture is very full and creamy.

Truly an excellent beer, and certainly one of the best brewed here in Freiburg.

Amazing appearance: the head is dense, fine and creamy, and lasting; the body is of a nice hazy golden color. The smell is very fresh and shows some subtle fruity notes. Quite enjoyable; basic, but nonetheless pleasing. The taste is greatly fruity at first, before a floury hoppy aftertaste appears. Citrus, peaches, with some wheaty and cake-like nutty notes. Mouthfeel is very round, smooth and creamy. Probably the best helles I’ve had so far!

Serving: On tap at the Hausbrauerei Feierling Biergarten in Freiburg (Breisgau) in 500mL Krug.
Served: Many times between March-July 2012

Appearance: A hazy, pale, yellow. Not as golden as a Hefeweizen, but not as pale as a Pils. Thick, white head that sticks around for a good while. Looks welcoming.

Smell: Fresh, crisp, 'beer-y', sweet.

Taste: Amazing. Incredible. This is one of the best beers I have ever tasted. Light fruity notes on the tip, and a nice kiss of hops on the back end- just enough to know they're there, but not enough to really taste them throughout the beer. Incredibly well brewed. I could drink this beer for hours and continue to be enraptured by its masterful balance. Truly a special beer.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and full-bodied. Perfect carbonation for the style: enough to be 'frisch' and effervescent but not enough to make you feel full after a few.

Overall: If you are in the Freiburg area, you must try this beer. Easily the best beer available in the entire city. If only I could get my hands on this and some Rothaus back here in the states, I'd be a happy man.

0.5 liter Stein brought to you by a waitress.

Gorgeous 1.5 inches white head.

Super smooth flavor, yet full bodied, so it lasts enough up until your next gulp. This beer is not for sipping!

A super session beer - you just don't want to put it down.

You can easily polish off five 0.5 liter steins in 2 hours, especially when you are having a great time with friends.

Beware - the smoothness of the beer masks the ABV. 2.5 liters of this helles easily puts you in the f$#@$# up zone. But it tastes so good that you just don't care.

Tasting this beer is not enough. Plan adequate time for a good session. Feierling Inselhopf is a must, if you are in Freiburg! Second to Feierling's helles, try the "Rothaus Tannenzäpfle" available by the bottle at most gas stations around the black forest area. These two beers are The benchmark for true German beer, and the only beer the locals drink! (Opinion based on 3.5 years of living in Freiburg, with a good pulse on the local lifestyle.)

Prost!
