UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 Draft @ Blind Tiger. Orange golden pour with some white head. Aroma of citrus, pears, light wood and hop notes. Different flavor than the norm for a blond, but follows with citrus grains, malts and slight hop and fruit subtleties.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a lighter to medium yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of citrus, grains, and lighter fruitiness. Tastes of the same citrus (lemons), grains, and grass.

Damico (2511) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2010
There is a zesty slight vanilla aroma. It pours a dark yellow straw color with a small head. The tart wheat flavor is delicious and crisp.

Bottle from Fred82. Pours a cloudy, straw yellow. Aroma is tart with lemon and malt. Taste is tart with citrus fruit. Dry mouthfeel with popping flavours of yeast, grain and little subtle flavours that really come out as you savor this beer. My first Hopfenstark and definitely not my last.

750 ml bottle - thanks after4ever!! pours cloudy yellow with soft white head; lovely nose of soft fruit, pineapple, noble hops and pilsner malt; super dry with slight tartness; flowers, musky lemons, spice, yeast and very rich; love the nose and texture here and while the flavor doesn’t quite match the nose, it is extremely tasty with a rich, fruity dryness not in your average golden ale; everything just pops out with this lively brew; wowzers, Hopfenstark is on my radar now!!

TheJester (1806) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2009
Mondial 2009, Montreal. Yellow-gold and slightly hazy with a nice but short-lived white head. Aroma of fruit, noble hops and pilsner malt. And maybe a little honey. The flavour is slightly sweet, with herbal hops, grainy/grassy malt, and a little citrus and spice. Incredibly well balanced. Not a style I usually go out of my way for, but I will for this one.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2009 Tap. At l’Assomption, in their barn-shed, near a haystack. Many Québec beer geeks seem to wet their pants when it comes to this one... It is a well deserved satisfaction spasm as this blonde beauty has a hell of a body. The taste is very grainy and leafy, with subtilititties that leave you wanting more. Added: Gotta rerate since I now have an addiction. A tremendous beer in every way, with herbal hop subtilties that I know no word to describe. Indeed a beer masterpiece.
