COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hergestellt nach jahrhundertealter Brautradition. Die einzigartige Malzmischung aus Pilsnermalz, Wienermalz und Caramelmalz ergibt ein vollmundiges und aromareiches Bier, welches in Gaumen und Nase eine spezielle Blume entwickelt. Die Lagerung in Eichenfässern welche bis zu vier Monate dauert, gibt dem Holzfassbier seinen unnachahmlichen Charakter.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2008
Bottled (swingtop bottle). Cloudy orange-brown coloured, white head. Aroma of wheat, like a hefeweizen with notes of banana, combined with some caramel malts, really nice. In flavour the wheat is more on the background, and it’s the caramel malts that together with the hops that dominate. Biter finish. Pleasant brew.

Pours a medium copper color with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is oak, and some skunkiness. Taste is smooth, grainy, grassy, and some corn. Nothing special but quite refreshing.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2008

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 Bottled 33cl. It pours a beautiful hazy orange beer. Lovely color. The nose is of malt, wood, caramel, chestnut and berries. A woody taste. Malty, full bodied with a decent hoppiness. Slightly sour, not in a bad way, adding character to this beer. Caramel and berries again in the taste. A very good palate. The finish is buttery, malty, slightly yeasty with hints of chestnuts. Nice lacing. Rerate pending.
