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.

Lemke10 (870) - 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.

Sissio (847) - 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.

Grumbo (827) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle brought back by my wife from Swiss holiday. Hazy orange colour with a white head. Malt and fruit aroma. Medium body. Flowery. OK.

SinH4 (765) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Cloudy orange color with proper head. Sweet malts in the aroma, but not much more. Sweet malty flavours, hints of nuttiness, but not really distinct. Hardly any tanines or wood at all, but still good to drink.

Sten (696) - 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.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Pours slightly cloudy dishwater blonde with quickly fading white head. Aroma of malt, hop and honey. Smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Light honey flavor with some caramel malt sweetness. Not bad, but needs something to combat the sweetness.
