2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Murky brown color. Rye bread and floral notes in the aroma. Sourish flavor. Grainy with citrus. Short aftertaste. Quite un-German if you ask me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Cloudy, copper to dark amber colour with a firm mid-sized tanned foamy head. Delicately toasted malty aroma with hints of rye bread and citric fruity notes. Surprisingly sour flavour, light bodied with a modest carbonation. Sourish dark malty and slightly bready taste with sourish fruity notes, but also mildly tosted accents; sour and rather slim finish with a toasty and delicately caramelly edge. Uncommon but not completely bad. 20.IV.13

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours and unclear brown with a light brown fast to go head. Aroma is a strange spicy sweet malt. Taste is pretty rough. The same as the aroma but over taken by esters. Palate is weak but sad and sour. Skip this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Pours a murky brown with lazy carbonation and miniscule head, looks and smells like an unfiltered apple cider. Aroma is definitely rye, dark bread, apples. Taste is mildly sour, pumpernickel, apples. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, no sense oif the carbonation at all, and no lingering aftertaste, A tricky beer, and not too many of this sort to compare it to. I’ll give Sudmeister the benefit of the doubt in this one.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Bottle shared with McTapps. Taste of rye bread, pumpernickel, old cheese and hops. Not easy to drink, it is even quite dull and awful.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Milky ruby-amber in colour with low head and thin body. Strange aroma of old bread. I was a bit afraid of the first sip, and I was proofed right. Taste of apple seeds, molded rye bread, sour pumpernickel and old grass. Not my kind of beer; just too sour and dull.
