degbert (1367) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark, hazy orange-amber with a high, fine-grained, cream-colored head. Nose is pronouncedly sweet and orange, almost into the orange soda range; there is also a faint trace of pine and floral notes. Sweet at the front of the tongue, and yes, there’s orange, though it’s much more organic and natural.. and then the hops kicks in with bitter herbs, pine, and lavender. Nice balance with the honey-toffee notes in the malt. Tastes better than it smells, and finishes nicely. One of the better things they’ve done.

Flavors are of grapefruit, citrusy, and floral hop notes. A bit of grassy dry hop resin. Medium bitter, pretty dry. Lively carbonation. Pretty good stuff from a German Style brewery.
