Pours a hazy orange amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Hints of lemon, vinous grape, caramel and nutty walnut. Nice clean flavor profile with some tart notes creeping into the round doughy malts towards the finish.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Wieder mal ein Bierchen von Vormann geholt und wieder mal ist es eine Mischung aus feiner, lambicartiger Säure, die dieses gewisse im Abgang auch, aber auch einen Teil ekelhaftesten Rauchs enthält. Somit endet es unentschieden, wenn auch die Ansätze genau richtig sind, um ein fruchtiges, von Pfirsichen durchtränktes Bier zu brauen.

McTapps (4073) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle bought at the Vormann brewery. The beer pours out in a hazy dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of acid, peat and hops. Taste of mild acid, light voínegar, nuts, light barley, peat, torf and mild hops. Mild acid finish with hints of green nuts. Easy drinkable and special - enjoyed it.

Huge thanks to Erzengel for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts malty, light sourish notes, some fruity hints of raisins. More and more earthy-dry. Sourish-malty aftertaste. Okay.

Looks good but has a light aroma. Good and sour but still not one of the better sours.

Should be drunk on the warmer side. A beautiful beer, with fine bubbles rising into lace. The flavors are subtle but balanced and robust, like a whole wheat sourdough.

Many thanks for this bottle to Erzengel. Pours a cloudy copper color with a thin off white head. Sour aroma. Oak notes in the flavor. Really nice.
