COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Goedenacht identifies vintage vinifera flavors from an intrepid, but yet delicate integration of constituent parts of a mead, cider and wild beer. Young, Goedenacht is sweet with delicate, almost cider like characteristics. However, during aging (roughly 6 months to 1 year), the brettanomyces and farmhouse strains used during fermentation begin to become more prominent with wild characteristics, along with increasing levels of tartness.

Draft, Millvale Brew Fest.....ridiculouly long line, but well worth it. Super tropical fruit with light citrus notes and a slight funk. Straw colored, almost golden, with a haziness, but the brewer said it’s conditioned in kegs and bottles. The flavor is reminescent of a slightly tart apple cider, with a mild citrusy honey sweetness. Very intriguing and enjoyable. These guys are making a mark in the local beer market and the line at the festival was the proof....well worth the wait.

Bottle at clockworks would never have guessed this was an American beer by the name. Orange blossom nose and pepper. Tstes of orange blossoms, honey, earth, bread, cherries, musk, pepper and Brett. Odd one but enjoyable.

mansquito (4053) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2015
The Beer Store, Southampton, PA: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is honey, fruitiness, and yeast. Taste is a little sweet. Body is carbonated. Has a sot of winy aftertaste, I understand the connection that they draw to cider, as at times the beer does seem a little like a cider.

Finally another DL, yeah! On tap at the bocktown, nice place. No real apparent aroma, surprisingly no volatile fumes for nearly 10%. And, its fairly easy on the palate. quite civilized you would never know this is 10%. Hides the alky really well, reserved and almost sessionable. On the uptake, it seems more like a 4% domestic beldgy. After a few, you now know its a tenner, wew, dizzy baby. Well done DL on this beldgy wannah bee. Its reserved and with manners, good job! Nice domestic attept at a real trippel.

MarkSachon (723) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
12 oz bottle from The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Many notes of floral and citrus with a pronounced tartness. Could easily fall into the cider category. One can appreciate the uniqueness of this very nice selection.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5357) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a slightly hazy yellow-golden color with a small foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sourish and tangy apple and pear. The flavor was sweet and tangy table sugar, candied apples, pear, a touch of apricot and bread dough. Long sweet and tangy candied golden fruit finish. Moderately full bodied. The alcohol was well concealed. Quite nice.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2013
On tap at House of 1000. Light sweet tripel aroma, yeast and esters, mild bubblegum and honey. Light golden clear with thin white lacing head. Medium body with light-medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with light bubblegum, yeasty notes, and a hint of honey-sugar tang. Notes of cherry wood in the finish, with sweet after. Mild warming. Nice ale, fruity.
