It has already become a tradition: in the spring a lighter, fresher beer speciality is also brewed – perfect for light summer dishes and mild summer evenings. In autumn when the colder days call for a warming drink, stronger and more full-bodied editions like the annual Winterbock are drunk.
A bottom-fermented, chestnut brown, particularly creamy-velvety beer. Full-bodied and slightly bitter with the flavour of ripe sweet chestnuts. A decent roasted flavour while the body is simultaneously strong and nutty rounds off this beer speciality. The sweet chestnut edition unfolds best in a red wine glass.
Accompaniment for food: the perfect complement to freshly roasted sweet chestnuts. Goes ideally with creamy soups, braised meat, game, duck or goose but also with mild, nutty desserts and mild, spicy cheese.
Optimal drinking temperature: 9 – 12°
Sweet chestnut edition – Autumn edition
Kaltenhausen’s Winterbock is richly honey-coloured. It is unfiltered.
A bouquet of aromas reminiscent of fresh sponge cake highlighted with a delicate hoppy aroma develops in the nose. The rather light body is immediately obvious in the flavour. It is refreshing, rather dry and slightly resinous. Moderate bitterness which fades away quickly.
Accompaniment to food: the ideal accompaniment for game dishes, steaks, spicy roasts, spicy cheeses but also gingerbread and nutty desserts.
Optimal drinking temperature: 8-10°
