3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Somewhat hazy amber brown color, Big, long-lasting beige head, swirls of lace. Inviting aroma of sweet malt and light spice. Taste is good, light-bodied caramel malt that moves smoothly to a carbonated swallow, adding light spice and toffee before yielding slightly to light hops in a short finish. Very good bock beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
