Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma with lots of overripe fruits. Flavor has some yeast, a bit of sweet malt, some fruitiness and a bitterish hops finish. Medium-bodied. Quite refreshing.

WillemsUrenkel (663) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2013
0,33 l bottle, with clear labeling. Pours hazy flat orange, mighty white head. The nose ist sweet hopy with grapefruit. Starts not so hopy bitter as expected. More moderate with a malty background, caramell, earthy and citrus on a very complex base. Later combined with koriander and nuts. A little bit sweet at the end but very drinkable. Recommended!

330ml bottle from Berlin Bier Shop

Pours yellowish orange with a massive foamy head. Aroma of grassy hops, zesty fruits, citrus and orange peel. Taste is grassy, bready and malty with notes of earthy fruity notes and citrus. Finish is zesty, stingy and hoppy with grassy and earthy notes. Nice IPA with German hops.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2013
33cl bottle pours with a gold body that has a slight haze and supports a nice white head. The aroma offers up malt sweetened hard orange candy, a sweet earthy lime hard candy and a light floral hop note. Interesting, it is on the light side but the various facets are intriguing. Wow, the flavor is malt sweetened juicy citrus goodness that has a great load of flavor and only a moderate level of hop bitterness. It seems to have a mix of clementine, tangerine and orange with a light degree of malt sweetness and a thin ribbon of slightly roasted malts well off in the background. These flavors go very well together. Yet another great tasting brew from this brewery. Yes!

Pours medium golden with a creamy white head. Nice hop aroma - you wouldn’t think this was a German beer. Pleasantly bitter, would drink again.
