3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Slight gusher. It pours a hazy brown with a nice-looking foamy/soapy off-white head. The spelt is easily noticeable with a sweet wheatlike aroma along with bread and a slight bit of noble hops. Flavor is sweet, nice fruitiness, mild hops, spelt, breadcrust. A fresh bottle that isn’t pasteruized and made it across the sea intact. This helps this beer alot. The sweetness is the only detractor.
