3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy, orange to amber colour with a big but non-persistent slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet and yeasty malt aroma, minimal toasty with subtle fruity notes and present hay-like, herbal hops. Bitter flavour, slightly toasted malty taste with liquorice and faint fruity notes; light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation; bitter and slightly sweet finish with a herbal hoppy blend. Solid Zwickel.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is slightly acidic malt combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet combined with a touch of acidity and notes of caramel and berries. The carbonation pricles the tongue.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Impressions in the shade of the keller:
-The mass krug is covered with foam, which deflates soon enough to reveal some shade of amber.
-Passionfruit and earthy malts form a menial aroma.
-Powder yeast and brown sugar allusions evolve into a weird, dry finish.
-Mild grassy hoppiness ends the show of personality.
-Soft carbonation and well-fed maltiness are always a pleasure.
On tap at the Friedel Keller on the Kreuzberg.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber, quite clear beer; good amberish head, fed by good carbonation. Slight sourish nose (??), very faint lactic acid, but excluding anything else... malt? Yep. Not really sourish - even something licorice/coloured malts/bark - but I’m absolutely shure this is infected, even when only very slightly (yet). Quite light MF, very light grain slickness. That is not what I expect under the "Zwickelbier" moniker. Maybe Belgium is a bridge too far for this kind of beer?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (from the Landbierparadies, Nürnberg): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, medium sized fluffy but stable off-white head; malty nose with a tinge of honey and a distinctive floral hoppy aroma; moderate aromatic bitter flavour, some traces of caramel and honey, medium bodied; lingering aromatic bitter finish with a tinge of yeast in the aftertaste. Wow, thats what a Kellerbier should be like !
