Bottle. The beer has a flowery and honey aromas. It has also some esters like banana and pear. Moderately carbonated with lasting head. The beer is mild. It has a moderate bitterness but it’s lasting a long time. It’s also spicy with clove. The bitterness profile is herbal. The beer isn’t super bad but nothing exceptional.

Idiosynkrasie (4460) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2014
500ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Slightly citrusy hoppy aroma has a lemon touch, hints of gooseberry, some apple, a cautious grassy touch. Taste is slightly fruity hoppy, notes of gooseberry, a touch of apple, pale malty background, subtle sweetness. Quaffable and quite refreshing, not overly intense, though.
