2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Solmu, 20121012) The beer poured reddish brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had boiled broccoli, malts and peas. Palate was medium bodied and quite warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, berries and bitterness. Aftertaste had berries, malts and bitterness. Very far away from a good German weizenbock.
