3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
from Bier-Bienne - hazy copper-brown beer with a persistent beige foam; nice lace; earthy and flowery aroma; creamy palate; medium-bodied and decently bitter; long dry earthy and biscuity finish - a good beer from a style too rarely brewed

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprising sweetish taste and smell. Nice malty bitterness but a bit more watery than typical top fermented beers. Though one of the best bottom fermented beers I had so far.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle at home. Pale amber brown with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bitterness combined with some sweet tones. Malts, caramel, brown sugar, hay, raisins and herbs. Although the vienna is not really my type of beer, this one is quite ok.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber fleeting off white head, nice lacing. Inviting aroma. Pleasant malts consistent with the style. Hops are good but I was hoping to taste a little more amarillo. I’d certainly drink it again but not at the price I payed tonight.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse - FR. Beautifully translucent maroon-ruby beer. Not all that much going on in the nose, apart from some bread crust, the metallic olfactory shadow of Vienna caramalts (faint berries). Near-obtrusive modern hop design, with a grassy and zesty bitter bite interfering with delicious red aroma malts, roast, bread crust, branches of red berry shrubs. Slightly metallic edge in the finish, thinner mouthfeel. Très nouvelle vague - la darling viennoise has been killed.
