Day of the Dead (Mexicana)
Dia De Los Muertos Immortal Beloved Hefeweizen
Brewery: Cervecería Mexicana
Style: German Hefeweizen
Format: 330ml Bottle
For 3,000 years the Aztecs honoured the deceased in an annual celebration called Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos). The ceremony would involve using parts of the skeleton, most commonly the skull where relatives would place native Merigolds in the eye sockets to reflect the life that once was present.
Today, this festive holiday is a celebration of life. Many celebrants decorate themselves in the joyful colours of the Mexican roots, paint their faces and sing to wake the dead. Day of the Dead Craft Beer is made to celebrate life and honour the traditions of this great holiday.
This German style Hefeweizen is a golden coloured wheat beer with a delicate balance of banana esters and clove phenolics. Medium bodied with moderate bitterness.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Honey and wet grain nose. Mild funky yeast flavours with hints of honey.
Good German influence, but it just slightly missed the mark.
Great attempt by a Mexican company.
Worth a try
