COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Die "Saint Arnold Brewing Company" ist die älteste Brauerei von Texas. Brock Wagner, der Braumeister und Brauereiinhaber, hat für dieses unfiltrierte, obergärige Bier 5 verschiedene Malzsorten, mehrere süddeutsche Hopfensorten und seine betriebseigene Hefe verwendet. Dieses Alebier ist sehr intensiv, komplex in der Nase und hat ein nach reifen Kirschen und Zwetschgen duftendes Aroma. Auf der Zunge ist es sehr vollmundig, kompakt und doch frisch. Im Ausklang hinterlässt es einen kräftigen, weich abgerundeten, rezenten Eindruck mit einer leichten und feinen Bittere, umrahmt von feinen Apfel-Zimt-Noten.

kappldav123 (4588) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
Thanks to jonas for that bottle. Looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Aroma a bit soapy. Starts strong, malty-spicy, notes of christmas spicy and butter cookie. Finish more alcoholic, but still well balanced. Warming aftertaste. A good one!

Bierkrug (2109) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2013
500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours a a dark amber-orange color with a fast to go beige head. Aroma is citrus, candied malt. Taste is rather light for style but a really nice touch of fruit and dry wood. Palate is also smooth even for this style. Not a huge fan of style most of this time but this is nice.

stevoj (1704) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 25, 2013
A good example of the Belgian style from this collaboration brew. Color is spot on, however, head was almost non-existant in my sample. Aroma has elements of caramel, toffee and spice. taste is also spot on for a Belgian, caramel and some spice. This is a really nice beer, and great for the colder months.
