Påminner i utseende om grapefruktjuice. Lätt grumlig, vitt lätt skum. Jäst och citrus i doften. Smakmässigt en blandning av weissbier och en lager. Uppfriskande sommaröl.

Lightly bitter, lightly sour/citrusy, but man that dough/yeast is a lovey, creamy-textured wave of joy. Full buy extremely soft and creamy body. On this day, just really perfect for this moment.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2010 Green 50cl bottle, bottling date is Oct, 23 2009: Pours so murky, looks exactly like unfiltered apple juice in the glass. Stinging, skunky aroma with citric and grassy hops, slightly acidic. Quite reminiscent of a Pilsener in the flavour, pronounced herbal and hemp-like hops, bready malts - I get little from the yeast. Not that good, unfortunately. One last thing: Who wrote the hilariously bad english commercial description? "Master spice" instead of original gravity, are you serious?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
This amenable Zwicklbier relies on its minty, herbal hops and its huggable blond cereals to sculpt a balanced and healthy pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A layer of foam protects the cloudy blond.
-The nose is a tad too timid for my tastes.
-This could be hoppier, but it is still quite good as is.
-Light citrus leaks from the hops, working well with the hay-like cereals.
Bottle. Best before January 23rd, 2009 (drunk on Dec.28).
