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.

Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is some caramel, spices and yeast. Taste is a bit skunky, caramel and a bit sweet. Medium body and carbo. Not so good.

Sissio (976) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAY 18, 2014
Clear copper gold with cream head. Caramel malts, cane sugar and wild honey, but not invasive. Mellow taste with sweet caramel malty tone, again sugar cane and a light bitter ending. Nice, but nothing exceptional.

Lemke10 (914) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2014
This pours a hazy, golden yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is mild with yeast, citrus, and wheat. The taste is sweet but flat with a grainy citrus taste. It’s fairly easy drinking but ordinary and forgettable. Not too overall but at its price point, you can find way better brews for the same price.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2008
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.

MonsterMagnet (753) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle, pours yellow/orange with a white head. Wood, flowers, grass, bread, earthy, hint of banana and caramel. It’s like an alpine meadow in a lager, Interesting beer.

Sten (713) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2006
Hazy golden-orange colour with a small white head. Slightly malt aroma, the flavour is malty and a bit hoppy in the aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Enjoyed in a Suppen bar in Basel; second floor style. Yeast, golden pour. Nose hints of caramel and some floral aspects, and a few tossed herbs. Some marzipan, and a yeast like flavour pilfers about. An enjoyable Vienna, and I didn’t even know that was what I was drinking. The after taste carried a few surprises with banana nut bread and berries. yum.
