2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark brown, hazy, small and fully light brown diminishing head. Moderate malty – wheaty, sweetish aroma, lightly fruity and bitter. Body is average, malty – wheaty, lightly sweet flavor, light fruitiness and alcohol. Finish is short to average, malty and dryish, light alcohol and spiciness. Strong wheat bock, too much alcohol considering the body, finish is quite sharp – spicy.
