Bottled, from Landbierparadies, Nuremberg. Lightly hazy pale golden, mid sized head. Grassy nosewith some red apples. Dryish with light-medium body and crisp, rounded mouthfeel. Liggtly fruity with plenty of grass and hay. Mid bitter finish. Unusually fruity for a Franconian zwickel.

Moravius (407) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2014
Flasche. - Strohgelb, trüb. In der Nase zitroniger Hopfen und kräftige Hefe. Im Antrunk milder zitroniger Hopfen, eingebettet in reichlich füllige Hefe. Etwas Heu. Blasses helles Malz mit ganz zarter Honigsüße. In der Mitte wird es ziemlich dünn. Durchschnittlich rezent. Schwach bitterer Abgang mit leichter dumpfer Bittere und wieder Hefe. - Mild und erfrischend aber etwas dünn, limonadenartig. Reichlich Hefe macht noch kein gutes Zwickelbier ...

kappldav123 (4733) - GERMANY - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle looks really good. Simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild but not washy, modest dry, mild sourish notes. Fruity hints of lemon. Well balanced finish, spicy-dry aftertaste. Nice!

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012
bottle, best by December 2012.
hazy pale gold body with a medium-sized fine white head. first whiff right off the pour is surprisingly bacteria-like and strongly phenolic - it honestly smells like some brett a pedio, though it breathes out after a few minutes and the smell is much more typical of a kellerbier or zwickel: acidic and pungent dried citrus hops, grass / hay / barnyard mustiness, etc. tingly, zesty acid on the tongue with some graininess and sharpness throughout. this bottle seems a bit faded but the grain husk character certainly seems intentional, and out of place for sure. light body with noticeable syrupiness and a slick, oily finish.
