On tap at Birch Bar Norfolk, VA for Zwanze ’14, pours cloudy pale orange with 2 finger head. Nose is fruity tropical tea, mango, peach, kumquat, slight tartness and soggy grain. Taste is similar with a definite tea influence, low tart, some pleasant tropical fruit notes and light citrus mix with restrained grainy malt. Finish is low tartness, round herbal fruity melon, mango, peach, various fruits and some notes of stonefruit. Simple but nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve had this beer on draft a few times now. It’s a little different every time. Interesting.
The beer is a light pink color with a thin, off-white collar. Aromas of grassy funk, herbal tea, peach, peach skin, kombucha. Moderate tartness with stone fruit and a mild earthiness. Some floral notes with a hint of berries. The finish offers a light puckering sensation with a moderate acetic quality. Complex and enjoyable. The peach character was more prominent the fist time I had this and nearly absent on the second occasion. A fun beer to drink, and definitely worth a try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap at Max’s. Cloudy golden with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is watery lemon and maybe some touches of caramel, citrus and herb. Taste is middle-of-the-road: toast, caramel, some sharp citrus and a finish of Saltine cracker. Looked for some tea but never got it. Light-medium body is refreshing and crisp with medium-high carbonation.
