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.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2007
This beer is a lightly hazed dark golden color with a minimal white head and little lacing of which to speak. Sweet malt in the nose coupled with corn. Light bodied with a floral character and sweet malt flavor. Touches of fresh fruit here and there as well. The finish is mildly hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Overall the beer is average and not very unique.

Tranquillity (1422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2009
Bottled. Dark-orange, thick white head. The aroma is fruity and malty, caramel and even marshmallow. Good stuff! Nothing special in the taste, but it’s extremely well balanced and all individual parts are good. There’s malt with good hops towards the end, with a sweeter finish.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear, bright medium orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up honey, sweet caramel, and faint light fruits with plenty of oak and a little vanilla present.. some mild vegetal character on the back. The flavor found sweet caramel and pale malts at the core with a quick transition to spicy oak and earthy bitterness at the edges.. finished tacky with the same sweetness and oak. Lighter-bodied and dry on the palate with interesting character from the barrel. Not a great beer, but it was drinkable.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Sampled in Zurich. A pretty nice brew, goes down really smooth and crisp. In a bottle, pours a nice bit of head. Decent spicing.

Dorqui (2113) - 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.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2011
11.2oz rubber-stopper corked bottle. Opens with a reassuringly loud pop. Quite a murky, grayed reddish brown. Thin, creamy white head. The aroma isn’t so appealing, some fig-like fruitiness and attic oak. Oops. Shouldve noticed that in fine print this beer was best had by January 2011...its now mid June. Has clearly deteriorated, but still some enjoyable characteristics. Pleasant, clean malt body, light and fluffy on the palate. Would be rated higher fresh, I’m sure.

SinH4 (274) - 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.
