How lieblich

In preparation for an upcoming nerd conference (this year’s is in DC), I’m nerding out.  Here’s something I’m sure you’re all desperate for – an Austrian residual sugar chart!

Austrian Term English Translation Amount of Residual Sugar
Trocken Dry Up to .9%…provided that the total acidity is no more than .2% less than the residual sugar content
Extra Trocken Extra Dry Up to .4%
Halbtrocken Semi Dry Up to 1.2%
Lieblich “Charming” Up to 4.5%
Süss Sweet Over 4.5%
