Acid beer, the flavor burns very quickly from the mouth, yet the alcohol response of it needs to hide a little bit more. Honestly, more work needs to be done here. What I liked about it is the aroma, it gives you a sweet and strong bouquet at first, but very disappointing once you taste it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice interesting mix of styles. Is not a weizen is not a dunkel. Is more like a creamy dunkel weizen but with strong alcoholic features. NIce foam too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The colour of this one is dark brown, head is off-white. A bit of a funky aroma, artificial fruit odours, some alcohol as well on the nose. Taste is predominantly fruity sweet, and a tad of sourness for good measures as well. Don’t really know what I think about this, it’s certainly not bad-tasting, but maybe a bit boring and it doesn’t do it full out for me. It’s a bit watery and palate isn’t all that it could have been.
