COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Take a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, with this elegant, refreshing pilsner. Our brewers created Vunderbar! with both feet grounded in tradition, focusing on authentic German pilsner malt and spicy Czech Saaz hops. The result just might get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, “Das ist Vunderbar!” Formerly known as Shortbatch #11

probstblueribbon (3297) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Slightly hazy light golden with a decent bright white head, good lacing. Aroma: Peppery/spicy/green/herbal German hopping supported by grainy Pils malt, quite spicy and peppery. Palate: Medium body, full, rounded carbonation. Flav.: A bit more malt presence compared to the nose, otherwise, quite similar with firm German hops presence; quite dry with moderate+ bitterness and a grainy malt and herbal hop finish.

Decentbar? A good example of a German Pils, which I don’t always enjoy.

nearbeer (4162) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2014
12 oz. bb 01/21/15. Clear golden with a lasting disc of beady foam. Nose is dry spicy yeast, honey with a bit of citrus, and toast. Front tastes of spicy honey and toasted grain are slowly swept away by some lightly tart citrus zest and then some grassy herbs. Near-medium body is soft and well balanced by a crisp finish. Medium-high carbonation provides a nice tingle, without getting out of hand.
