Bottle shared by Travlr, 5/23/14. Pours golden with a thin head. Aroma of pale malt, spice and glue. The taste is pale malt, and a hint of bitterness if you look for it with an electron microscope. Thin.

So this is the Eisbock version thanks to Travlr’s freezer. Tastes like concentrated turpentine, much better than the regular turpentine. I like to think I can even taste some grain here. Pours kind of cloudy blonde but who knows.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 4.0 ABV on bottle. The colour is very pale. The head is weak & bubbly. Nose of bread, cereal, yeast. Not much taste at all: maybe sweetish & soapy. Watery polate, absent abrupt watery finish. No aftertaste. I’ll hardly try it again.

500mL thanks to Travlr via Boystout. Pours a clear lighter gold. Weak bubbly foam. No real formation. Nose is stale bread, very cereal heavy, small honey. Taste is bland, honey, vegetables, lemon juice, old grain. Palate is spicy, soapy, watery. Eh. Not offensive but no good.
