Freuen Sie sich auf ein mahagoni-ebenholz-farbenes, opalisierendes Bier mit kompaktem Schaum und intensivem Duft nach Gewürznelken, Mandeln, dunkler Schokolade und reifen Früchten. Die feine, an Zitrusfrüchte angelehnte Säure ist eingebettet in ein geheimnisvolles Hopfenarrangement - abgerundet druch das blumige Aroma des Saphirhopfens. Ein Geschmackserlebnis der Extraklasse - wuchtig und trotzdem elegant, charaktervoll und sanft zugleich, einmalig wie sein Namensgeber - ein Bier für ganz besondere Momente. (label and website)

Bottle(diky ,Štěpane!):Hazy, amber coloured, big and pretty stable off-white loose head, dried fruits, caramel, wheat and yeast in the nose, backed by a solid dash of hops; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering sweet fruity to caramelly finish with a decent hoppy aftertaste. Fine! Well rounded stuff…

Thanks a lot to quack.duck for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Malty-yeasty aroma. Starts strong, intense malty, fine roasty, mild yeasty. A bit warming-alcoholic without being too much. Soft-malty finish, yeasty, fruity with hints of raisins and liquorice. Quite drinkable. Nice!

Cuso (6861) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2013
Bottle from trade with Quack-Duck, velky hlubosklon pane. Hazy brown color with huge off-white head. Sweet syrupy, malty aroma with fruity notes, roasty notes. Dusty taste with wheat, banana, red fruit syrup, citrus, banana, wheat, yeast. Very light bitterness in fruity (banana) finish. Alcohol is dangerously hidden. Little bit unusual, delicious Weizenbock.

Bottle 75cl from my friend Daniel and shared with him. A cloudy brown beer with creamy head. Nose is on pine apple, aroma is medium sweet to low, astringent, less creamy, liquors banana notes, bit of brown bread, relative low body, less complex and tasty as expected, simply good.

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle, shared at a friend’s party. This is a one-off, only 5.000 bottles were available at the brewery and in selected shops. Cloudy brown colour with a mid-sized off-white head. Aroma of ripe fruit, clove and roasetd malts (this beer is made with roasted wheat malt btw). Medium- to full-bodied with a malty, wheaty and yeasty base and some very good hops that add citrus fruit to the ripe fruit touch, lemon zest, lime... Spicy hints re detectable in the background, clove mainly. Smooth and velvety carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden and embedded in the beer. Delicious, I hope there will be more such pleasant surprises from Hirsch.
