Cunningham (4019) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Vom Faß at Gosser Bierklinik in Vienna. Hazy golden yellow colour with a large white head. Fruity fresh and hoppy aroma. Flowery, bitter, fresh, light sweet. A very well balanced and hamonic flavour. Overall these austrian zwickelbiers are fantastic.

henrikb (1257) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2007
Draft - Hazy golden body with lots of bubbles, medium sized bubbles in white head with creamy top; Quite small but pleasant nose malty mineral; Big good carbonation in good soft body quite big, balanced, bitter could have more character; Medium long malty finish more warming then fresh. Alright beer, could be both fresher and more complex.

KnutAlbert (5764) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2006
Bottled, in Vienna. Cloudy, not very fizzy. Full flavour, could easily be mistaken for a hefe weisse. Harmonic beer taste, it says on the label, and I agree. Fine hops, both flowery and bitter.

marcusm (56) - Remich, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 20, 2004
A Draught beer sampled at the brewery tap. A Golden slightly hazy beer with little head retention of a white head. Initially a pale malty/sherbetty taste, following through as the (unknown)hop character builds to a medium end where both flavours subside together in a slighty sticky end. not a bad beer, as all the breweris seem to be trying out their procivities at making a Zwickelbeer.
