Tap at Uerige. Et leckere droepje. Typical Alt bier that is overrated inmy opinion.Aroma is ok, you have predominatly malt, flavors are complemnetd by hops that leads to a bitter finish. A session beer for sure, but nothing spectacular.

Pours a brown-ish color, with a medium head. The smell is slightly funky, and I can’t place it very well.. Leather, maybe? The flavor makes less of an impression than the smell. It’s dry overall, but doesn’t have a very powerful flavor at all. Mouthfeel is slightly watery, and the finish is dry. I’m not entirely impressed by this one, but the flip-top bottle is cool as heck.

courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear amber colour with a fine beige head and a nice lace; peppery and earthy aroma, light notes of cherry in the background; some tartness, medium-bodied, slightly oily and with a solid bitterness; very dry fruity and nutty finish - this is a damned good altbier !

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swing-top bottle that gives a shot and smoke when opened. Light yellow, creamy head over an orange coloured head. Plain hoppy to the nose. Has got some sweet caramel quality and a touch of lightly honeyed malt. Dry finish with a bitter touch at the end (Sampled at The St Albans Beer Festival, 28.09.2006).

Quickly becoming a fan of this brewer. Aroma of leather and hints of grass with malty bitterness. Flavor is good without being overly bitter. A great session beer.

Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate caramel malty smoke aroma. Light to medium bosy with a slick texture. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. Interesting drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber pour. Very light tan head that was small and didn’t last long. Sweet aroma. Caramel. The flavor was different - didn’t expect it. Hints of smoke - burnt wood chips, ash - roasted chicken. Then hop bitterness. Felt thin going in but after a swallow it feels waxy on the tongue. Bottle is cool. Love the swing top.
