KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a murky dark red almost cranberry in color with a huge (3-4 finger) frothy pink head that had good retention and some really good lacing that was left sticking to the edges of the glass. The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, a citrus hop and a mild sweet yeast with notes of caramel, orange and a nice dose of cherries. It tasted malty sweet with a hint of orange at first then became ever so lightly bitter with a nice fruity finish that left the flavor lasting an average duration preceding the swallow. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet lightly dry in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall an interesting take on a traditional brew, very tasty and refreshingly different.

Pours reddish color with pinkish head. Caramel malts, some roast, and a little grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt.

AgentAle (580) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Aroma is a sweet grassy hop aroma. Some sweet caramel notes. Some bitter snap to it that finishes with a tanginess. Overall not terribly complex and the bitterness is a bit off. The body is a clear red appearance with a pink head that retains fairly well.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Rating #954 - February 7, 2014 - Bottle from Coop, trying to clear out some more room. Dark ruby caramel pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty, fruity sweetness, and a strong grassy whiff. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Weird sensation, and maybe this got syrupy and lost something with age, but I get an odd mix of kriek and pils in this, and it’s beyond unpleasant. Not to my taste.

Tonkun (756) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Ruby raspberry pour with a big pink head. Wheat, bread, caramel. Not a lot of aroma. Medium to light body with relatively sweet creamy bubbles. Slight bitter finish. Not bad. Interesting...

Reimer96 (1161) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours a clear pinkish red with a light pink head. Aroma of bread, toast light caramel and grass hops. Taste is grassy hops, bread, berries, light pale malts and a nice bitterness throughout. Funky beer but better than most think.

Campy877 (166) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. It is like a magic trick! Pours a ruby red grapefruit color with a thick pink head. Not at all what you would expect from a October marzen style brew. Has a slightly sweet matlzy with a hoppy after finish. Like all Schmaltz products, very surprisingly good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
A reddish marzen with a thin pinkish white head. In aroma, sweet tobacco strawberry with signs of oxidation. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with leather, oxidation, not very good. Shared with GRM.
