3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big malty aroma, some floral hoppy notes. Light yellow, pours a large, long lasting, rocky off-white head. Flavour is sweet malt, hint of fruit, (green grape,) unsalted cracker, some fine hops also. Light bodied, crisp, clean, wonderfullerly bitter, loads of carbonation. Terrific! I feel this style is very much under-rated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A fairly clear pale-gold pour with a thick and fizzy off-white head that leaves some slight rings of lace. Crisp aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast and some cream. The taste is definitely bready and malty. A little one-dimensional. I wasn’t expecting this taste at all from the aroma. Quite perfumed. Grainy body with the slightest hints of orange and lemon. Not a style I think much of, I guess. Fairly bland and boring. Still, it’s a refreshing and solid beer.

A light orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, while the flaovr is sweet malty and hoppy with a slightly bitter end. A cleanly made beer - just not too exciting.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2005 A dort for their 100th anniversary? Why not. This is one masterful brew from an underappreciated brewer. Pours a perfect gold with a finger’s length of fine white bubbles. Smells of bananas, whipped cream, nutmeg and a slight tinge of a grassy note could be picked up here. Taste is sweet and near perfect and is what you’d expect from a good dort with some orange notes, with some very nice subtle hoppy fieldgrass elements. Slightly bitter on the finish. Definitely worthy of the name.

ehh, this was kind of a disappointment. expected more from a 100th anniversary beer from a german brewery. it’s ok, I’d say it was a clean, crisp, refreshing brew but was still a bit of a disappointment, kind of bland for what it was.
