Beer Review: Bira 91 Strong, High Intensity Wheat Beer

Bira took the market by storm this summer with the launch of strong beer, they couldn’t have stayed away from this category for long after all the real bottle beer market in India is from Strong beer, some reports suggest strong beer accounts for more than 83% of all beer sold in India.

I couldn’t have waited for a long to taste this beer and it took a couple of weeks to really understand the whole flavor, I tried the 650ml bottle 500ml can, both of them on different occasions. At times, a glass bottle may throw in different flavors than of a beer in the can.

Bira’s official take on Bira 91 Strong, its is a “High-Intensity Wheat Beer”, this beer is a top fermented ale giving it a unique and rich taste that is low on bitterness, high on honey and caramel notes.

A truly fine Indian beer, beer lovers highest appreciation for driving the change. Top rating primarily because of the competition in this category, you were only getting spirits, here is a strong beer with full bodied flavor, stays on palettes for long. You can truly enjoy the perfect fruitiness in the first sip, very clean and refreshing. Although you don’t get that distinguished wheat flavour, but the perfection is in the combination of ale yeast.

  1. The Wheat Beer strong i tried many times, i am at conclusion that it’s not upto standards..
    looks like alcohol is fortified in this beer.. natural flavours from malt is very less.. also this beer of 2 bottles gives lot of kick and strange hang over

    so i really don’t recommend this wheat strong ..

    1. Tasted like rose flavor. Not a very good taste and there’s hangover after having 2 beers. Didn’t try White and Blonde but hope they are better.

  2. Bira beer test is good, but there is no addiction in it. Frankly, I got a very nonsense beer. Wastage of money.

  3. Frankly speaking it’s a best beer I ever taste because it has a low bitter taste and good content of malt and marley… Definitely tried this…

  4. Bira beer test is good, but there is no addiction in it. Frankly. Wastage of money.
    Overall MRP is so high
    I like Budweiser & tuberg , elephant
