jaghana (4728) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle 33cl. An amber beer with medium carbonation. Smell is hopy and acid. Aroma is very acid and yeast like, so strange near to vomit, may be some infection or to high temperature storage. Quite citric and dry, very bitter at the finish, not really nice. Donno what kind of beer it should be, more a Berliner Weisse than any thing else.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 The aroma isn’t anything special but it does have butterscotch, yeast, sour fruit, brown sugar, and spices. The appearance is amber with lot of floating particles and a large head. The flavor is complex and like the aroma. The palate is soft. Overall a likable beer.
