3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 7.7%. Fruity and refreshing hop aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is fruity, semi-sweet to begin with, but dries out a bit. Clean and well-balanced. Almost too clean for the style, but that might not be a bad thing. Semi-anonymous but very drinkable.

Sweet flavor of cardboard, stale malt, honey-ish notes, a light fruity hint and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied. BBD is in 2017, but this one’s already too old.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Unspectacular malty aroma with a wooden touch, cautious hints of honey and resin. Taste is moderately sweet malty with a touch of honey and elderberry, some fruit acid abates the sirupy viscousness, cautious hints of yeasty spicyness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hop, malt and dried fruit. Sweetish flavour of malt, caramel and fruit. Tastes like Belgian abbey brew, a mild dubbel perhaps. Good, and rather surprising given it is from Baden-Württemberg.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked bottle, vintage 2011. A gift. ABV is 7.7%. Deep golden colour, large white head. Sweetish aroma of stale malts and stale jam. The flavour is much better than the aroma, fairly malty and spicy, some fruit too (raisins), hints of kandij sugar but not too sweet. Spicy and hoppy finish.
