3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Gusher. Cloudy orange, ridiculously huge off-white fluffy head. Malty yeasty nose, dried fruit. Sweet caramel and fruit taste, dried apricots and underlying bitterness. Very drinkable once I got down to the liquid!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottled - i was very excited to try this, having wondered during the last few neuhaus/windischeschenbach visits why they don’t make any zoiglbock there. perhaps to be ready for october 3rd? anyways, lightly hazed golden with a steady head; aroma of haystack, light whiff of alcohol; some grassy bitterness, light fruit salad. all works pretty well. hopefully some good inspiration for those in zoiglland

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(De Molen Feuer & Wasser) Pretty sure my old rating was deleted. Here I go again. 330 ml bottle at home, served into a tulip glass. ABV 8.1%
Gushes a bit. Hazy dark orange colour on the body, huge and ever rising off-white head, frothy but with good retention, helped also by its size. Spots of lacing left here and there.
Aroma of malts, sugars, nuts,
Taste of malts, red ripe fruits, light nuts, alcohol, quite sweet, light grapes.
Medium body, good carbonation.
Quite good although rather boozy.
