Pours "blood red" like they say it does, and has a minimal pink head that dissipates. Has aromas of licorice, artificial sweetener, bread, and a bit of caramel. Has a slight hop bite, and is in between a light and medium sweetness. This beer is really light and bland. Drinkalbe for sure, but this beer is way overpriced for what it is. A big dissapointment from an excellent brewery.

Don’t expect an Octoberfest/marzen here. 12 oz bottle. Pours bright red- artificial look w/pink head that mostly dissipates. Slight bubbles stay. Hard to pinpoint flavor, weak twizzler a little tart, hint of beet; is not very good. Mostly bitter impression. 3.5 BD

Bottle-kind of reminds me of the line from Airplane! when the controller talks about the pilot landing the plane, "Geez, this moron is all over the place." Fizzy red pour with a pink head, some kind of fruity aroma, my brain says cherry, but that’s because of the color. The taste is a bad marzen of malts, becoming overwhelmed by hops. Metallic finish. Good thing it was only 99 cents. Produce place.

Pours a clear raspberry red with small redish pink head that seems to last. Aromas of light malt and light earthy hops. Flavours are mild bitterness, fruity, grapefruit, minimal sweetness.

Definitely an odd beer. Pours a hazy raspberry red with a rocky pink head that leaves a bunch of sticky lace. Faint nose but I could get some herbal hoppiness and some blood-red orange fruitiness. Flavor was earthy and semi-bland with a semi-fruity slick blood orange fruitiness, mild bitterness, and a bit of toast. Not a fan.

Bottle from JB long ago. I had forgotten this in the beer cellar behind other beers. Pours hazy red with pink fizzy head. Aroma of earthy hop and malt. Flavor is malty, earthy, lightly sweet, earthy astringent bitter in finish. Light-medium body with high carbonation. Might have been old bottle, I did not enjoy this.

Mora2000 (5569) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours a deep red color with a medium sized pink head. The aroma is fairly faint. I get a bit of biscuit malt, as well as some toffee and a bit of earth. The flavor is also fairly faint. I get some sweet caramel malt but that is about it. There is a little earth and grass, as well as some metallic notes. Also, as the beer warms, I get some medicinal character that is not good. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Pass on this one.

From the Schmaltz Brewery, Freaktoberfest is an interesting and tasty beer treat! Pours blood red and perfectly clear, head is a bit on the pink side and lacing is not bad at all. Caramel malts, grains, sweet toasty malts, and a little fruit make up the aroma. Taste wise it’s not too far off from a Marzen or Octoberfest. Nice caramel malts and toasty, bready malts make up the bulk of the flavor. Hop bitterness is present in a balancing way, but isn’t the main attribute. It grows some as it warms though. Body is lager-y and pretty easy drinking, yet full and right on the money for a marzen or Octoberfest style beer. I think it’s another very interesting beer from Schmaltz, one of my favorite US breweries!

Bottle. Red color, pinkish red head. Rather hoppy tasting for a marzen beer. But still good. Aroma is hay, bread, grass.
