4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Light floral and grassy notes. Noticeable yeast-derived fruity esters and herbal European hops. Light sulfur.
Appearance: Very light yellow, fluffy white head, leaves light Belgian lace on glass. Slight yeast haze.
Taste: Lightest malt flavor, slight herbal hops. Light fruit noticeable... pears and banana. A hint of clove and sulfur.
Palate: Light body, high carbonation. Sulfur lingers in the finish.
Overall: Very refreshing beer for a hot summer day. Sulfur may be off-putting for some, but I found it a lovely counterpoint to the light fruit and herbal hop flavors.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this at the source, DC Brau. Poured a mostly clear yellow-orange color with a very slight haze to it, head is vibrant white, that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet malts with a cutting spice note to it and plenty of lemon there. Fruity notes, with notes of grass and a touch of yeast. Flavor is sweet, with fruity esters, with a touch of ground pepper with some lemon. Alcohol is at 4%, so it’s really easy to drink.

On tap at Rustico. Served in a sample snifter. Pours a cloudy light golden. Heavy head and lace. Styrian-type hops and some fruit. Touch of bready malt. Non descript. Light-med body. Easy-drinking, but nothing too interesting. Given the low-ABV, I’d certainly choose this again on the right occasion.
