3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours cloudy orange with off-white head. Aroma is oak, toffee, fruity, cherries and wine-like notes. Flavour is wood, vanilla, sweet and sour. Slippery and oily texture for this style. This is a doppel bock? Well, in this case it is a doppelganger doppelbock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375ml bottle. Hazy orangey to amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma has notes of orange, bitter orange, orange zest, grapes. Taste is moderately sweet, sugary, has a tart note, fruity notes of orange, grapes; a vinous touch as well as resemblance to sparkling wine (rosé). Completely hidden alcohol, almost light, too sweet. Interesting experiment. Doppelbock???

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deutlich zu süßer Antrunk. Leicht nach Trauben, langweilig. Zuckrig, mild, wenig hopfig, alkoholisch. Weich aromatisch, die Lagerung hat dem Bier nicht gut getan. 10/9/9/9/9/9

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sektflasche: Golden, cloudy with an orangey sheen, mid-sized stable off-white head with a little lace, aromas of vanilla, wood, sourish fruits and some sweet pale malt in the nose; solid sweet-sourish flavour, full bodied and quite soft; the always present soft acidity accompanies the smooth fruity-woody finish. A fantastic Old Ale from Germany…
