3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, from the brewery) Clear, deep golden to light-amber colour with a medium-sized foamy white head with nice lace. Moderately sweet malty, slightly toasted aroma with notes of citrus and a touch of herbal hops. Initially sweet and toast-malty taste with a honeyish fruitiness; medium-dry malty, slightly bitter and hoppy finish. Once again I prefer the counterpart brewed by Hummel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Impressions from the Gaststätte:
-Dry cereal and peppery hoppiness first greeted me, politely.
-A ring of head evaporates from the filtered dark golden.
-Some dry hay blades rest on running caramel.
-Body is a little thin again; I don’t think they were getting as good an extraction as they can have. Other people here have tasted much better results it seems.
On tap at the brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0.5l. Delirium cafe, Brussel. Lovely hoppy nose: pineapple, peaches, a bit flowery, herbal and some underlying malt. Tastes more malty and the hop comes back in the finish with a good bitterness. Nice silky mouthfeel, but maybe a bit overcarbonated. Overall a very nice marzen!

Ah but Joris, it is a very nice Marzen :-)
It starts with the looks: Hazy amber with moderate carbonation, big foamy tanned lacing head. Bready, some dried tropical fruit aroma, herbal and aromatic hops. Fruity and honeyish malts, some perfumed notes and a elegant dry herbal finish.
Solid chewy mouthfeel, bready and herbal aftertaste.
