My bottle has a different label - not sure if it should be a new entry or not. Style is described as a ’Double Hefe’ not an amber (also described as a weissbock), also has a green label instead of red. Still says ’Volksvitzen’ on the top of the label. I’m sure someone will sort it out! 6.8% abv handwritten on the bottle.
Ok the rating. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a slight white head. Nose is wheat and slightly lemon. Wheat in the taste quickly moves to an almost Belgian spice with a blanket of lactic sourness on the finish. I don’t know if this is what these guys were going for, but it’s excellent!!

Pours hazy orange amber with literally no head. Weird vinous acidic nose. Very wine like musty flavor, with a strange tart finish. Tastes infected and has zero carb. Really awful all around, literally nothing good to say about this.
