This beer was named as the "zwickel", which is a small device at the fermentation and storation tanks used by the brewers to take samples and to controll the brewing process. Zwickel-Beer is not filtered so it keeps its natural content of proteines, polyphenols and minerals.

solidfunk (6762) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Decent enough for style. Some barley and some butter. Certainly interesting after three weeks of Ethiopian lager. Hazy golden pour with foamy head. Light bitter crisp finish. Bottle at Caviar House in Frankfurt airport.

Tap at Dachsbau, Krefeld. Thin, watery beer, light acidic and oxidised (cardboard). Has been standing there for far too long.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes goldgelbes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, getreidig, leicht würzig. Geschmack malzig würzig, getreidig, leichte Bitterkeit.

Thanks to Erzengel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, modest turbid, nice head. Starts mild, malty, dry-yeasty. Grasy-malty with some mild sourish notes. Finish still yeasty dry. Okay.

Erzengel (7124) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2013
Die Farbe ist ähnlich hell wie beim Fest-Export, aber viel trüber. Das Aroma ist ziemlich schwach, aber leichte Zitrustöne sind zu erahnen. Der Antrunk ist herb-vollmundig-süffig. Die Herbe Note zieht sich durchs ganze Bier, der Hauptteil ist süßlich-blumig-hopfig, aber nicht frisch, sondern hat einen muffigen Anklang. Der Nachgeschmack ist dominant, aber angenehm herb, und diese muffige Herbe hält sich auch ziemlich lange auf der Zunge. --> Interessantes, aber doch recht herbes Zwickelbier! (Test vom 14.7.2008) --> 12,9,10,8,12,9 - 9,45

BlackHaddock (5637) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Brown 0.5 litre bottle, best before 8th July 2010, drank 23rd Frb 2010. The second beer from this brewery to be reviewed this evening (of three). Poured into a vase shaped pint glass. Very pale yellow, misty rather than murky or cloudy, thin looking actually. On top sat an uneven crust of foam, white in colour. Next time I have one I’ll pour it into a stone mug (stein) I think! Yeast esters came up from the beer, mixed with hints of hops and the promise of mixed spices (cloves, corriander and nutmeg). The taste was refreshing and wheatish in flavour, the aforementioned spices did appear, but only lightly and in the background. Enjoyed the beer, wish I’d bought more while staying close to the brewery last December.

500 ml bottle picked up at Wasana’s and had at home. Pours a very hazy almost bright yellew with a soft but thin snow white head. Aroma is lemon, hops and grass. Taste is basic hard and full of grains. Palate is slightly harsh but well made. I however did not think much of this beer, It is good well made but the flavor and pleasure are just not there until you let this beer warm and settle.

Bottled. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is grass, some floral notes, mild earth as well as some maltyness. Flavour is herbs, malts, some grass and mild dusty notes.

Koelschtrinker (15589) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Das Bier startet mit einer hopfig-herben Mischung, zu der wenig später ein würziger Unterton stößt, der von nun an konstant bleibt. Ab dem Mittelteil zieht sich die Herbe etwas zurück, der milde Hopfen ist weiter präsent. Noch milder ist nur die Fruchtigkeit. Nun legt der Hopfen aber zu und zieht die Herbe mit sich, im Nachgeschmack ist dieses Aroma in mehr als ausreichender Intensität vorhanden und rettet den vergleichsweise laschen Mittelteil. In Ordnung, aber ein höheres Potential ist vorhanden! Test vom 7.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,10,11,12,11,11 - 10,60
