Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 23, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Saarlander. It pours a murky yellow beer with a tall nicely remaining lacing white head. Murkier and paler appearance than expected. Lovely hops, baguette, sweat, hop resin and yeast in the nose which is really inviting. Coconut and strawberry showing up in the taste. Yeast accented. Strong bitterness. Long dry hoppy finish which is reminiscent of coconut and baguette. Excellent and underrated in my opinion. Thanks a lot Aaron!

Bierkrug (2133) - - NOV 6, 2010
500 ml bottle in Germany. Pours a nice golden color with white forming stands through out. Aroma is a true pleasure a full floral and citrus spectrum. Taste is much like an unfilltered Pils., however very mellow. Palate is weak but Pils like. Overall a very nice Zwickel, which is a little understood beer.

marcusm (56) - Remich, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 18, 2005
A bottled sample, aroma of spritzy Saaz hops, a head lasting to the end of the glass - just off white. On the mouth, slightly murky gold colour, as you would expect from a naturally produced beer. Well, it starts off with the hops biting the tongue, sliding down the palate, forming creamy malty notes, filing the tongue with flavour, ending with a note of hoppy cream soda in the mouth. A lucious beer, worth seeking out. I buy this by the case close to a micro in Germany - no question, need beer, buy some here - visit the micro too (Abteibrau in Metlach)

darkseduction (593) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Nice cloudy golden brew, appetising appearence. Small white head. Lively carbonisation, fresh and floral lightness, in the aftertaste a elaborated maltiness. Hoppy notes underline the satisfying impression.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2008

MichaelAwesome (4053) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. very earthy one with a lot of lefs, hay and grass. Down to earth, dry beer with lots of aromas from the fields. Nice one for sure but also containing a very bitter, but honest, finish.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2006
(33cl bottle, traded with Saarlander) Cloudy orange colour with a mid-sized, slowly lacing foamy white head. Moderately sweet, chewy malt aroma, yeasty and citrus-fruity with delicate herbal hops in the background. Light-sweet flavour, yeasty malty taste with notes of citrus; light to medium bodied, lively carbonated mouthfeel; dry and yeasty bitter finish with light herbal and fruity notes. Refreshing well-quaffable brew.

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
[bottle] Nice floral and lemony hops aroma that is a little musty and with definite hay/straw notes. Very hazy yellow-orange with a dense, lasting, white foam cover. Flavour is weak malt and mineral watery followed by some noble hops flavour, a touch of lotus root malt, and a appropriately gentle bitterness to offset a medium residual sweetness. Notes of grass and walnut. High carbonation, medium body, slightly bitter finish.
