3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft poured into a stein. A flat caramel cola aroma with some fall baking spices emanate from the initial pouring. As it settles, a doughy / yeast not appears as well as a very mild floral note, and a hint of mildew (maybe some undertones from the earlier yeast aroma?). The cola aroma also evolves to a more root beer aroma. It’s a rich, clear caramel brown with a light brownish / yellowish, fluffy, creamy, fizzy head. The head is consistent, small bubbles evenly distributed which dissipates slowly and leaves an abundant lacing. The taste is a mellow, medium level of sweet with a light, dry bitter. This is a thin, watery textured beer with a soft, subtle, effervescent carbonation. The medium body is mostly malty (although not overly rich) with notes of caramel, toasted bread, and maybe even a hint of chocolate. There’s also tones of spice (allspice?) in the sip. The very light, floral and citrus finish is mostly clean with a toasted grain aftertaste that doesn’t last long.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, brown color with an off-white head. Sweet and spicy smell. Not incredibly carbonated...I’d say the carbonation is just right. It has a nice dunkel taste that is not overwhelming. Nothing metallic about this one. No strong aftertaste. All that’s left is a subtle reminder that it was there.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear mahogany with a thick off-white head. My bottle was green, unlike the pic here, and aroma was a little skunky. Not a lot of active carbonation in the glass but swirling it around creates a nice creamy head. Taste is nothing special, but is not really bitter at all. It’s mostly malty hay and yeast. Not a bad dunkel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Botella de 500ml. Vaso Weizen. Color marrón y trasparente. La espuma bronceada crea una corona burbujeante y fugaz. Aromas herbales, tostados y de leve madera con trazos de diacetilo. Sabores de tostado dulce y sirope. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante que agua la textura. Sabor de caramelo y matices de licor de almendras y avellanas que se despliegan en el intermedio. Final dulce. Desequilibrada y empalagosa !

Light to medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation resolves in a watery texture. Candy flavor, hues of sweet almonds & nutmeg liquor touch are displayed in the middle. Sweet finish. Unbalanced & cloying!

On tap at local pizzeria. Pours a muddy brown with an off-white head. Aroma has caramel and lemons, with light brown sugar. Taste is of malty caramel, bread and lemons. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes sweetly, and not too long. A solid easy drinker - a little sweet and a little sour.
