kappldav123 (5935) - GERMANY - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild but not washy, malty, wheaty, not too dry. Light sourish notes. Finish still mild, well balanced and quite drinkable. Not bad!

TAR (2693) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Tap @ brewpub in Nov, 2013: Burnished golden. Broken small-bubbled white foam. Hopcentric nose of fallen leaves, fennel seed, and a mixture of peppery, herbal, and woody Spalt. Characterful yeasty rusticity. Light note of minerals and DMS. Snug and fluffy carbonation. Stiffly mineralic and potently sharp and crunchy with toasted nuts and toffee kissed with a hoppy, fallen-leaf dryness which harmonizes with the deeply woody, drying flourish of candyish Spalt. Rustic pistachio-tinged yeast pervades and augments the core with considerable weight which consequently muddles things. Alcohol overexerts itself, as well. Splash of floral softness deepens the more rustic aspects with a bit of elegance. Finely detailed malt is multilayered and exhibits a well-structured firmness which unleashes stacks of toffee, hay dust, and toasted bread amid ongoing leathery pecan skin accents. Closes with some mineralic grip along with a woody and candyish hop signature. A hop-accented kellerbier with enough character to keep things interesting. It’s quite likable initially, but the yeastiness, among other minor blemishes, become distracting as you spend some time with it. Not too shabby.

ansjelaah (1747) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
Gedronken @ Moe’s in Bamberg, helder gouden kleur, witte schuimkraag en ruikt en smaakt naar mout, niks speciaals

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
Verhalten honigtönig im Aroma. Der Schaum auf dem hellorangenem Bier ist zu schnell verschwunden. Dünner Antrunk. Neben der leichte Honignote marginal getreidig; klingt dann etwas herb aus. Trinkbar, aber kein Treffer!

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 fresh bottle. apple and toffee malt aroma with touches of just-burnt corn kernels and minerals / vitamins and a hint of solvent (who knows?). medium -light body, corn / toffee malt with somewhat heavy apple / pear / fruit cocktail esters. low bitterness; mild sweetness; flabby / watery finish. pretty boring and unexciting and limp.

Better showing in November 2013 from bottle at the brewery. Clean, doughy, hoppy, elegant.

neur0 (1111) - GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
(Flasche) Es hat eine orangene Farbe, ist ganz leicht trüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma riecht stark nach Blütenhonig und Karamell. Der Geschmack ist sehr schlank auf Dauer fast ein bisschen wässrig, recht bitter mit einer grasig-würzigen Kopfnote und einem karamellig, süßem Körper.
