COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopfen: Saphir Malz: Pilsener, Karamellmalz With Colonia, BraufactuM brings traditional Rhenish bitters to life once more. The special hoppy aroma can be attributed to large hop additions in both the brew house and the storage tanks. For Whirlpool and dry hopping nly the rare Hallertauer Saphir hop is used. Mit Colonia lässt BraufactuM die Tradition der Rheinischen Bitterbiere wieder aufleben. Mit einer hohen Hopfengabe im Sudhaus, aber auch in den Lagertanks, wurde sowohl die höhere Bitternote als auch das ganz besondere Hopfenaroma erzeugt. Die seltene Hallertauer Hopfensorte "Saphir" verleiht diesem Bier seine besondere Aromatik.

King_Alex_II (1146) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Clear yellow color with foam ring. Hoppy nose with grass and herbs. The taste is bitter, dry and a little bit tart, however with a fresh herbal note. The aftertaste is dry and a little bitter.

BlackHaddock (6104) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2016
355cl bottle into an old Schultheiss Berliner Weisse bowl at home on 12th Jan 2016. Light golden bodied beer, thin wispy white head. Decent blend with the hops just about winning in both the aroma and taste stakes. A little too carbonated for me, almost fizzy in fact. OK, my first beer from these guys, needs a bit more flavour and depth in my opinion but overall not too bad.

FatPhil (13313) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2015
330ml bottle (Dusseldorf Airport)
Pale orange, brief head. Pleasant fleshy fruit aroma, a bit starchy. Bland APA taste, starchy, US05 yeastiness, plastic and starch, almost lagery. Gentle bitter finish. Watery palate. Ineffectual brew.

gegwilson (3038) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Door number 4 in the craft beer advent calendar. Quite a promising pineapple aroma. The taste is light pine with mild spice. It’s light in body and a touch watery, but otherwise fairly pleasant.

ciocanelu (1073) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 1, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear straw color with white head. Aroma is hoppy with some dank notes and a slight honey note. Taste starts sweet and hoppy with fruit notes and gets bitter in the finish with grapefruit notes. Fresh and easy to drink.
