More information about Port Papa
David Hertl is the master of creative beers. The young savage is not afraid of unusual ingredients and has a whole range of extravagant beers in his assortment. It is therefore hardly surprising that the exceptional brewer also has beers on offer that have been married with wine.
Port Wine Papa is one such combination of beer and wine. David's dad Bernd served as inspiration for the unusual beer-wine hybrid. He is not only employee of the month and beer sommelier at the Hertl brewery, but also a winemaker. David created Papa's Weißheit in his honor: A delicious wheat that forms the basis for the beer-wine hybrid. It is joined by a fiery port wine from Vino Vidro. Beer and wine are fermented together to create an aroma-intensive symbiosis that tastes fruity of wine, spicy of yeast, and delicately malty.
Hertl's Port Wine Papa flows into the glass in a slightly cloudy copper red and is adorned with an airy crown of white foam. The strong aroma testifies to the successful combination of beer and wine, presenting the best of both worlds: The aroma of heavy, ripe grapes is joined by creamy banana, spicy yeast and a hint of malt. Taste-wise, the beer follows the olfactory first impression, playing up both wine-like notes and classic wheat aromatics.
A sensational combination!
