COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aus der Kraft des Ursprungs entstand dieses einzigartige Bier aus hochwertigen Getreide liegt in der bio-dynamischen Meinklang - Landwirtschaft in Pamhagen. Einkorn, Dinkel und Emmer sind die ältesten Getreide der Welt und gelten als Vorläufer heutiger Weizenarten. Einkorn etwa, bestimmt den fein-würzigen, zart nussigen Geschmack. Es weist deutlich höhere Gehalte an Mineralstoffen und Aminosäuren auf und zählt zu den erlesensten Getreiden. Gebraut wird im Brauhaus Gusswerk in Salzburgs alter Glockengießerei - die erste Brauerei, die auschließlich nach bio-dynamischen Richtlinien arbeitet.

0.33l bottle. Was given the bottle by someone from Austria. Pours a creamy and cloudy yellow/orange colour, with a foamy head. Aroma is sweet and smells of slightly sour apples, with hints of nuts. The palate is smooth and somewhat thick. Flavour is raw, with notes of malty sweetness and nuts.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Don’t know about all the biodynamic-ness of the beer as far as what that adds, but this is tasty. Very remininscent of a berlinerweisse with slightly cloudy straw coloring and persistent head. Very lemony citrus and highly refreshing...however, clocks in at $19/6er! >>>Rerate...bumping this up. Bottle from same batch....bottle says best before 6/2012, but I think this has improved. Becoming a nice sour...funky lemon citrus nose that gets more horsey as it warms. Tart lemon flavors on wheaty base. Just amplified version of the one tried previously.

jgb9348 (4626) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Hazy golden body with a rich tan head. Aroma of honey, apricots, apples and caramel. Medium-bodied; Nice rich malt flavour with a good sweet kick, some mild hops and a herbal and floral note. Mild complex aftertaste with a bunch of sweetness. Nice and great to sample as I’ve never seen it before - even though it wasn’t a stellar beer. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from German Gourmet in Falls Church, Virginia for US$3.50 by my Dad, sampled camping in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

bottle. hazed golden wheat body, white head. fairly quiet nose of lemon / wheat / perfume esters, all much more pronounced as flavors. vibrant acidity. medium sweetness drying and bitterring later. mild citrus rind bitterness and lingering yeast and wheat pastiness in the finish. balanced and genuine.

liinis (1534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2010
Great exception! Hops easily noted and the malts too have their own character. So not too balanced. Interesting and enjoyable.

Duft av frukter og høy. Dunkel gulbrun farge. Tunt skum, noe heng langs kant. Frisk med en liten søtlig smak av karamell.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Happy to try this - love some of the Meinklang wines, especially the Pinot Noir a few years back, interested to see what they do with beer. Pales a slightly hazy gold. Aroma is grainy, a touch bready. Flavor is interesting, very focused on malts. Surprisingly full bodied, with an almost berry note to the otherwise crackery grains. Hops only there to provide balancing bitterness. Intersting what the traditional grains did for this brew.

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2010
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. Organic / bio-dynamic ingredients. ABV is 4.7%. Pale golden colour, enormous white head. Decent aroma of malts and floral hops. High level of carbonation, big bubbles in the mouth. The flavour has also decent malts (from various esoteric grains), some nutty notes, with moderate but noticeable hops in the finish. Tolerably well balanced beer.
