3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s unclear brown-black with a red hue and a huge head. The aroma has notes of yeast, roasted malt, caramel and fruit. The sweet flavor has notes of yeast, licorice, caramel, fruit, and the finish is slightly dry with a hint of licorice and yeast. A very pleasant and different dunkel Weizen.
