3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Clear dark brown colour with average, firm, frothy to creamy, minimally lacing, off-white head. Slightly grassy, relative intensely yeasty aroma, reminding of a Saison, hard to discover dark malty notes. Complex taste has a minimally sweet, dark malty basis, slightly grassy, wheaty and yeasty overtones, lasting dry finish with hints of grass and leather. Kinda really unique, too dark for a Saison though somewhat near in aroma and taste, too less malty for a Dunkler Bock, too less wheaty for a typical Weizen of any kind. In the end not bad, but also not really awe-inspiring.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle at the brewpub, shared with Elisabeth and Stefan. Dark brown pour, patches at the surface. Sediments to the last pour. Dark fruity aroma. Flavoured with red oranges, dark malts and dark spices. Rather tart on the swallow. Unusual for a German dunkler bock. Just alright, if not convincing (Manchester, 05.07.2012).
