2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a deep brown with a big foamy white head. Smelled like walnuts oddly enough and like a seedy bread. Tastes like bread and a hint of apple. Thin and watery flavor. The only dig on this beer is a overly smokey, fishy finish to the flavor. I don’t drink alot of Germans, so this was a nice change, but I wasn’t impressed.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle - pours very dark with red highlights, just like most beers that pour dark. The aroma is full of bready fruitiness that promises good things, but the flavour just doesn’t deliver. It’s much thinner than I was expecting and somewhat bland. Just not enough flavour in there. I’m not crazy about their Hefeweizen, and this doesn’t really do much for me either, for the same reasons.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO gift pack. Dark brown with red reflects and a thick beige head. Aroma is very strong, some green fruits, bread and malt. Taste is similar, very clean, body is a little watery. Not bad, but nothing very special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle from LCBO gift pack. Dark brown - almost opaque. Beige head starts large and grows from there. (It did go down eventually). Aroma is sharp - bruised apples, with a bit of spice and malt in behind. Original taste. For some reason, I’m getting green apples more than bananas. Don’t notice much spice until the end, when I got a sort of sweet/spicy thing. Very little bitterness. Good, not great.

Bottle. I was expecting something like Aventinus and I was a bit disappointed. Almost like a cross between a weissbier and a stout.
