Beer on Tour: Bonn

We’ve been at Beethoven’s birthplace playing all of his symphonies this week, Bonn is a very pretty little town and it’s been lovely to have the time to enjoy it.

The brewery of choice has been Bönnsch, a small outfit in the centre of town with all its copper on display. As well as making a local version of Kölsch there was a Weizen and a Saison, all intentionally cloudy.

The Weizen was bready and dry with a hint of spice, a little sweet but a bit different from the Bavarian version. The Saison I really enjoyed. It had a reddish colour, a fuller body and was a little fruity, perhaps even with a hint of sourness. Great to find a German brewery doing things a little differently.
