650ml Flasche. Bernstein Farbe, schöne Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, würzig, Wurst?! Geschmack sehr malzig süß, leicht würzig. So leicht schmeckt es auch nach Leberwurst :-)

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 250ml bottle - shared by Marduk, thanks!
Sweet and sour aroma. Corny taste. Smooth palate. Sweetish, but not sticky, and covers the alcohol pretty well. Its main flaw is that it’s boring, and the sourness in the aroma. Maybe harsh, but it’s not sold itself to me at all well.

Bov (11768) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 18, 2014
from Au Grain d’Orge, Neuchâtel - pours a clear bronze beer under a little persistent foam; gently spicy aroma with notes of caramel; sweet and pretty oily; a good malt body, lot of residual sweetness and long notes of caramel and candy sugar

Pours yellow colour.. The flavour is sweet, creamy. Vinous and moldy finish. Creamy mouthfeel and carbonation.

MoritzF (9286) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
(swing top bottle, 65cl) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly caramelly malty aroma with bready and slightly nutty notes, accompanied by a subtle citric touch. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Biscuity cara-malt character with mildly fruity accents; sweet and delicately bitter finish with notes of biscuits and caramel, while the alcoholic strength is warming, not harming. 26.XII.13

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Only 328 shopping days to go. 750ml fliptop. Clear bronze with an initially massive off white foam. Neutral, slight nectarine, stale boiled sweet, strong lager and marzipan aroma. OK beyond with the same kind of weak stewed stone fruit and washy almond flavour. Drab. Not enough interest for the alcoholic and calorific buck.

27/XI/14 - 65cl @ Gent Horeca Expo - BB: n/a (2014-1419)

Clear deep blond beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, lots of orange peel, overripe fruits, spicy, bit sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, bit sugary, cooked fruits and vegetables, spicy, cloves, some cinnamon. Aftertaste: bitter touch, spicy, bit sugary, some off-flavours, reminds me a lot of (US style) pumpkin ale. And that’s not really a good thing.

swing top bottle 650ml. -from Spar supermarket, Alpe d’Huez. Darker golden coloured, medium to big off-white head, light caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, mild spicy and alcoholic with touch of banana and brown sugar in the finish. Not bad.

Idiosynkrasie (6193) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
650ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma comes close to apricot, peach and the like, a strawy touch. Taste is moderately sweet fruity, cautious tart counterweight, hints of apricot, peach, a dry hoppy touch.

250ml bottle. Clear amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Just pure malts in aroma. Bready, malty, sweet taste. Can’t detect alcohol.
