COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kiesbye’s Waldbier Editionen stehen für außergewöhnliche Genussmomente - Genuss, der direkt aus den Wäldern der Österreichischen Bundesforste kommt. Die Natur steckt dabei voller einzigartiger Schätze. 2011 wurden für die Waldbier Edition Tanne junge Tannenwipferl aus der Region Hochkönig, Salzburg, eingesetzt, 2012 folgte dann die Waldbier Edition Zirbe, deren aromatische Zirbenzapfen im Tiroler Radurschltal gepflückt wurden. In der heurigen 2013er Waldbier Edition Lärche finden sowohl die Jungtriebe, als auch Zapfen der Lärche Verwendung - alle sorgsam von Hand gepflückt aus ÖBf-Wäldern im steirischen Ausseerland. Kiesbye’s Waldbiere werden in streng limitierter Menge und mit sehr viel Handarbeit produziert, abgefüllt und verpackt.

Die Waldbier Edition 2013 Lärche ist bernsteinfarben und leicht opal, da es komplett naturbelassen nur durch eine sehr lange, 90tägige kalte Lagerung geklärt wurde. Alle Rohstoffe stammen zu 100% aus Österreich. Für das milde Aroma werden Karamellmalze eingesetzt, die sich mit speziellen obergärigen Ale-Hefe und einer blumigen Hopfenkomposition zu einem süßlich-fruchtigen, aromatischen Potpourri vereinen.

Die Ernte der Lärchennadeln und -zapfen gestaltete sich als sehr schwierig, da die Lärchen vereinzelt und in schwer zugänglichem Terrain standen. Schlussendlich wurden in 40 Stunden mühevoller Handarbeit rund 35 kg junge Lärchenzapfen & Triebe gepflückt. Die Nadeln haben harzig-zitronenartige Aromen und die attraktiven Lärchenzapfen geben pinien- und gewürzkräuterartige, süßliche Noten, die das Waldbier vervollkommen. Das Waldbier ist mit 8,2% Vol. Alkohol eingebraut und kann über viele Jahre im Bierkeller gereift werden.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
33cl, 2013 vintage stored 1,5yrs. Moussy deep golden-amber pour. Exotic-spicy, soapy nose of Chinese candied ginger and firtree bathfoam, underlaying sweet mousse and orchard fruit caramels, honey. Carries most nuances over into medium-full bodied taste, making good use of its 8%: pickled citrus zest marmelade made with natural fir resins for pectins, sweet ginger, smoky-caramelised peach with a residual tartness, firwood airspray condensed into dessert mousse. Not much of an abv nose. Well balanced, complex, homily exotic and well drinkable.

bastarda (209) - Freiburg, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
Shared by bartlebier on April brewpub, thanks. Forest aroma, hints of cheesy yeast, perhaps due to aging, some floral and honey notes as well, caramel sweetness in taste, herbal honey, nicely balanced by a bit of a sour note and really some forest green, spruce tips covered in honey and fermented resin, thus far away from bubblebath cleanliness. Interesting experiment.

rosenbergh (8580) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2014
330 ml bottle. #17967/18000. BBE Dez/2017. From Geiserich. Vielen Dank Michael!
Hazy reddish orange golden colour with a tiny white head. A very strong aroma of syrup, some flavour syrup, figs and raisins. Strange but not bad. The flavour is also strong with pine needles, flavour syrup, mild bitterness and some sourness. Quite peculiar but interesting. Not bad at all. The alcohol is well hidden in the strangeness of this. Rich. Thanks to Michael for sending this to me!
