Draft. Clear amber brown color, beige head. Aroma of toffee bubblegum. Taste has banana, toffee, subtle spice. OK.

EithCubes (5067) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2014
500mL bottle. Nose is very sweet and floral, very ’spelty’ as you in the know may know, pours with a bit of a mini-gush, but slowly, a hazy orange-copper with a tight, dense foamy beige head. Taste sweet with low bitterness, very grainy and floral, lots of strong spelt character, very pleasant here. Hops are minimal, some organic hay and earth in the toasted caramel-type malt, clean medium-full body, bright with a little citrus and fainter wood. Very natural, very pastoral, and something I’d often hope to find in the health food aisles of German co-ops.

tnkw01 (1176) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy, amber brown. Really huge, long lasting head. Aroma was dried fruit, toasted grains. Taste was slightly sweet, roasted grains with a yeasty after taste.

thegreenrooster (3268) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pour is a murky brown with a large white head. Aroma is sweet bubble gum with some rich nuts. Flavor is again sweet with brown sugar, herbal tea and mustiness. Finish is sweet with a touch of white wine vinegar. This was odd but in a good way.

BeerandBlues2 (9992) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Tap at Max’s. Pours lightly hazy orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is straw, meal, and biscuit malt with earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, light alcohol and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Light gusher! Pours dishwater amber with a frothy off-white (dirty white) head. Hefe aroma. Med + body. Flavor is darkly wheaty with a lot of spice. This is a very tasty beer that doesn’t fit easily into standard flavors. There’s fruit, spice, yeast, malt, but the main thing seems to be a very fresh fruit/ester. This is really good tasting stuff.

Patrickctenchi (3969) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours hazy amber gold with a tall, pillowy, light parchment head. Aroma is lightly spiced grain..a little sweet fruit. Taste is bready, malty, slightly sweet with a pleasant earthy/spiced bitter. Sort of an English bitter/Dunkel hybrid. VERY tasty.

CanIHave4Beers (3328) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 10, 2013
On Draught at the Hessen Haus.
Pours a very deep golden, but not quite to a "brown" color, the head is small and well retained.

The aroma is pleasant and fairly light, it’s a touch grainy in a not so bad way. Not especially sweet smelling and a little yeasty & a touch metallic. Inviting, but I’m not sure why?

The flavor is sweet but far short of cloying, very nicely matched with herbal hoppiness. The beer is mildly spicy and has a nice honey malt character.
