3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2011 Bottle, bought @ Bierkompass.de.
Pours hazy orange with no real head. Aroma has rubber gloves , toasted caramel and quite a bit of Werthers Echte. Very weird combination. High carbonation, dry as sh**. Flavour is dry malts, light wheat sweetness, lactic, a bit of sharpness, light sulphuric, apples. Quite weird and nowhere near as balanced as the Abraxas.
Tasted alongside the Abraxas]

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at the 1st Israeli Sour Tasting. Thanks Koelschtrinker for this bottle. Clear golden with a white head. A slightly lactic aroma with fruits, light smokiness, wheat and some citrus. Sour lactic flavor with nice citric notes. Medium-bodied. Tasty. Later note: After the tasting I had the last few sips left in the bottle, and a big smokiness hit me on the tongue. So, the flavor is also quite smoky even though I didn’t notice it before.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Im Geruch eine dezent rauchige und leicht hefesaure Note. Saurer Antrunk auf angenehmen Level, der nicht überfordert. Im Mittel rauchig-schinkig mit aromatischen Zügen. Trocken-sauer und gewürzig abebbend. Gut abgestimmtes Bier, kräftiger als das Abraxas. Jut!Test vom 13.5.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. This didn’t make me crazy. It has a white head with an orange like colour. Medium carbonation, fruity flavour, but also wheat taste. Nothing special for me but it’s a good product.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Kept in my cellar for 1 year. The aroma has a distinct subtle smokiness, some tartness and yeast. Slightly hazy, pale yellow coloured beer with a big, nice, white head. The taste is tart and sour, smokey, citric, hint of lactics and even wood. Very subtle, balanced and complex. Way to go Sebastian!

Bottle. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and smoky lactic malt aroma. Cloudy amber color with small head. Sweet lemon initially with tart lactic malt flavor with a light bitter finish. Medium body. Not bad - flavor pretty straight-forward.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange. White head. Aroma is smoky and fireplace-like. Also some wheat and herbs in the aroma. Flavour is very sour and fruity. Weird beer in a good way. Surprising too.
