Bananas, mineral water / calcium carbonate, apples, solvent, drywall and lactose aroma. Obvious infection. Sweet, light bodied, DMS-heavy, pasty. Cosmetics and foul fruit and cinder block dust. Bad shape for a fresh bottle.

TaktikMTL (5701) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2011
En fût. Bock de 1 litre, partagée avec des amis, dégusté au AnnaFest 2011 (Forcheim, Allemagne). Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel légèrement fruité avec une pointe d’houblons et de céréales. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #3824)

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Discreet herbal hops accompany fruity angles into a smooth peppery finish in this nicely drinkable festbier.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-Foam tufts cling to the top of the beer all the way down the krug. Quite appealing.
-This is not as sweet as Greif’s and Wolfshöher’s Annafestbiers, which is nice.
-Again, malt flavors are very polished, which seemed to be common at the Annafest.
-The big, soft bubbles and rather lean body (for an Annafestbier) make drinkability quite high.

On tap at Annafest.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2009
Draught at Annafest09. Good fruity and slightly sweet flavour. Has a little aromatic hoppiness that goes well with the fruit note. Low to medium bitterness. Big rocky off-white head.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
Ceramic mug. Amber-brown. Relatively thin head for a frankenbier. Herbal, fruity hop with some caramel malts. Light toast and background woodiness. Toasty, hoppy, some breadcrusty and wood.
