Plenty of lacing sticks on the glass. Aroma is fruity with mainly peaches, a bit of yeast, some brett like aroma notes. Very nice taste, hops, peaches, light yeast, wheat, moderate alcohol but more notable when it warms up a bit. Medium body, good carbonation, nice dryness on the palate.

bartlebier (1161) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
(lost backlog, upon returning empties). 75cl bottle series, Südstar Getränke 2013/07, sampled some months after. Murky amber, smells both chalky and of old fruit (peach, banana, ¿berries). Yeast profile of a Weizenbock, although a bit lighter, but with similar heavy, dominant malts, a bit like the Franziskaner Weissbier Royal Edition. Hops lack definition, not all that pleasant drinking. Least succesful in the series and hence painfully obvious: overstuffed, overpiced, overmarketed to mark blandness.

knutole (28) - Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2014
aroma: red wild berries, sweet, a bit sour, decent malty flavour, but a very strong berries flavor; taste: cassis fruit, currant, red wild berries, sweet, decent taste but very intense / heavy; couldn’t drink too much of this in a session but overall a decent beer

Sigmund (4809) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2014
750 ml bottle, from Alcampo Gran Canaria. ABV is 7.1%. Orange colour, moderate head, slightly off-white. The aroma is yeasty. fruity and malty, with notes of slightly stale jam. Drank it a bit too cold. The flavour was fairly refreshing, with yeasty, wheaty, malty, spicy and phenolic notes. Not bad.
