3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swing-top by 01.02.13. Sweet pale malt nose with dusty cellar notes, an excitable hazy light orange pour with a short white head. Sharp, crisp attack, medium body with a huge bready component, otherwise light tang and orange rind in with lightly caramelized malt. Faint grassy an cellar notes survive, and a really nice minty/herbal tone. Not a huge score on this one, but this brewer definitely knows what he’s doing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Purchased at Landbierparadies in Nurnberg, Best Before 4/5/12, consumed in early November: Yellowed rufous. Creamy ivory ring of head. Dull and unfocused nose of gummy candy, stewed peach and spent grains. Prickly carbonation. Dull, yeasty and considerably sharp with alcohol. Some faint fusels coincide with notes of medicine and slippery fruitiness. Very earthy and woody hop character, and at times leafy and tealike with the faintest accent of honeysuckle. A sweet and deeply toasty Munich quality exudes, but soon enough it’s lost within the terribly underattenuated syrupy body. A late yet timid development of melanoidins creeps in at the sweet and oddly fruity finish alongside an unrefined leafy, earthy hop punctuation. One of the messier landbiers I have yet encountered...curiously muddled, worty, disjointed and intensely sweet. Drainpour.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Leicht herber, sehr stechender und eigener Hopfenton, in dem kaum aromatische Hopfennoten zu finden sind. Wenig würzig, der Hopfen und später die harasche Bitterkeit lassen einen die Augen zusammenkneifen. Fast wässriger Abgang mit leichter Malz-Gewürznote, der im krassen Gegensatz zum Mittelteil steht. 8/6/5/6//6

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s unclear, dark orange with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of fruit and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and a refreshing bitterness, and notes of flower, fruit, malt, and the finish is dry with a hoppy, citrussy bitterness, that is unusual in a Zwickl.
