Must have been brewed in Belgium. Wonderfully sourish moments combined with wheat and some belgian yeast. Balanced aromas with a fine hoppy nose. Good one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 My first new local beer of what I hope to be many as I enjoy a two-month stay in Israel for a summer internship. Enjoyed a bottle of this from a street-side café in the Old City of Jerusalem, can’t think of a better setting than being at the brewery in the West Bank, which may be on the agenda for later in this trip. Features a solid brown-black schwarze style appearance with good white foamy head. Aroma was roasty and sweet, decent. Taste was very good, full roasty malt flavor that finishes almost with a burnt bitterness but is refreshing in its own way. Chocolate or caramel malt notes throughout. Full texture was enjoyable. Classified as a dunkel bock here but reminded me more of a shwarzebier. Either way a solid local brew, definitely will continue to sample this throughout my stay. Simple and not as sophisticated as most American micro-brew beer, but still respectable and recommended. Be sure to toast to peace for Palestine!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Chriso. It pours deep ruby-brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, malty, dried fruits, Irn Bru, candy and some meatiness. The taste is toasty, dark fruit, cola, meat, earth, odd spicy ntoes and light tang with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not the best....
