Veľmi príjemné pivo. Krásna jemne ovocná vôňa. Chuť ľahká s banánovou dochuťou. Vždy si rád dám toto pivo.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2015 0,5l bottle. Its funny that Schwechater brews such a good Zwickl, cause their main beer is just average. Refreshing bitterness, very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (7175) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 Tasted from the bottle in August 2006, Wien. Light yellow color, extremely cloudy. Tall, fine head. Extremely strong lemon aroma. Sour, with just a touch of sweetness. Very aromatic. Somewhat like a lambic in its nose. Sour flavor, with lemon and spice. Good malt, but little sweetness. Good hops, but it is ruled by a refreshing, sour flavor. Very drinkable; fantastic. Dry, sour, hoppy finish, long lasting. Maybe the best bottled Austrian beer I have tried, certainly the most interesting and original.

EithCubes (5195) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Draft in Vienna on 09 June 2011. Cloudy/dense golden with a lovely creamy white, lacing/Orval head. Nose is yeasty, medium citrus, light grass and hay. Very inviting. Lovely yeasty/doughy taste. 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. Lässt erfrischen!
