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.

Embrouille (2831) - 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.

asheft (2678) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
[bottle from Visp] Spicy melanoidiny aroma dominated by oaky butterscotch/vanilla. Hazy, dark amber, covered by a thin, off-white flannel blanket. Sweet base malt flavour immediately usurped by potent oak characteristics; butterscotch and vanilla. Not massively oaky like some extreme US brews, though. Actually kind of delicate. Balance is towards sweet, with little or no bitterness. Smooth and clean finish, moderate carbonation, medium body. Excellent--seriously underrated beer. Perhaps they changed something or my bottle was fresh. Anyone not tasting the oak in this beer was drinking something else than what was in my bottle.

Floral and malty beer, with a fresh taste of caramel, aroma hop and herbs. Good.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2006
33cl bottle brought back from a trip to Switzerland by my sister. - Pours dark golden hazy with a short white foamy head. Aromas of light malts, bread, and floral hops. Flavor is malty with lots of bread notes and a touch of caramel but also plenty of floral hop flavor as well. Palate is medium bodied and a touch on the grainy side. Not bad for a pale lager actually.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Flip-top bottle best before Oct 27, 2009 shared with funkybrewster. Pours a murky dull pinkish gray orange swirl with a thin airy soap-bubble looking white head, uuuuugly. Aroma of rauchbier, smokey, salty, oily, potpourri, vanilla and honey. Flavor of salty wax, floral, cardboard, nutty, soapy, ok I’m done...

drpimento (2421) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Not bad, not bad. Swing top opened with a hearty "pop". Poured with a very nice large foamy frothy thick sudsy cream colored head and good lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma had a very brief hint of metal and then lots of malt caramel nutmeats and cereal. Flavor’s like aroma plus a tinge of pumpkin pie spice. Body’s a bit thin and carbonation is good. Finish is like flavor and brief.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Bottle. Dark hazy golden in color with a nice fluffy off white head. Malty bready and woody aroma. Caramel oak notes. Hoppy citrusy malty flavor. Yeasty. Light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Average beer. Ok.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 20, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Unusually hazy and opaque color, rather dark and veiled with medium fizz. Compact and adherent head in superficial. Spiced and aged scent with aromas of straw, mint, fresh grass and malty. Prickly and mellow taste, medium bitter but in prominence on the end.

jerohen (2061) - 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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Hazy gold with a short white head. Big lemon and mashed banana flavour with some vanilla notes too. Very refreshing, slightly grainy feel. Sweet aroma of spice and fruit. This is a pale lager?
