3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Beim Heigl in Schirmitz: Hazed orange with golden highlights. Creamy and sticky halo of foam. Bright and clean aroma of orange marmalade, flowers, lemon, pecan, minerals and piecrust. Lush carbonation. Soft, refined malt links up with a lustrous and succulent orangey fruitiness, initially. Harmonious interplay of expressive flower nectar and an edgeless base of pils malt, which mimics new-mown hay. Multilayered maltiness spawns deep cookie, toasted bread, and softer toffee kisses. Juicy melanoidins shyly lurk amid silky, lip-smacking Cara-malt sugars. Appetizing contrast of explosive fruitiness and scratchy minerals blend with an invigorating splash of lemony acids. Pervasive fruitiness flourishes atop the lean malt and clean attenuation. Rustic yeast notes enrich the deep toast and lush hay with notable dustiness in the cohesive finish. Another delightful zoiglbier that doesn’t try to wow you with grandiosity or pretentiousness, as singular and well-crafted as it is. Fruity, balanced, minerally, good malt detail, and overall just lovely.

Draft at Beim Heigl in Schirmitz. Mostly clear orange-amber with a white foamy head.
Aroma is fruity / juicy with notes of orange jelly. Malt is pound cake, yeast is slightly chalky. Medium body, carbonation is sharp and pointed, finish is short. More sweet than bitter. In decent shape at both Heigl and the Oberpfalzer Hof (who pours this as their own).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap at oberpfaelzerhof, pre-zoigltag in neuhaus 2010, after being cruely denied in 2009 by them closing a few minutes before our arrival. anyways, far from the best zoigl - a bit too simple with some imperfections showing; suggestions of asparagus and lactic sourness, with a muted character of pear and passionfruit and lightly chalky aroma. not a bad beer really, but up against some pretty stiff local competition

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Süßlicher und süffiger Antrunk mit leicht herben noten. Leider wössrig werdend, die Getreidigkeit kann dies aber wieder egalisieren. Nicht sehr tiefgründig aber sehr erfrischend. 10/9/10/9//10
