4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
initially, I got an nose of cherry, but it further developed into a bit of a fig aroma, with some hints of "other fruit" tartness. Upon an initial sip, fig definitely stands out as the dominant flavor. It a very good beer with deep, rich fruit flavors. I’m not quite sure what I was getting, but it was dark, rich, and bold. A very rich brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de.
Dark copper to brown, clear body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of sweet berries, caramel, marzipan, dried fruits and roast.
Taste with about the same aromas, but less sweeter and with more roasty notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and it finishes roasty, slightly bitter, sweet malty and slightly hoppy.
Nice! Full, but quaffable and with nice hoppy notes. The nose is quite unique for this style, while the taste is more typical for an Altbier, but a pretty beyond average one!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing.
Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread.
Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt.
Medium body, lightish co2.
Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.

Grainy sweet bready malt and light fruit. Decent beer but not my favorite style.

11.2 ounce bottle from ABV. Pours a dark copper color, almost ruby, with a medium white head. A sweet nose of berries and toffee. A sweet malty base, dusty at times, big robust fruit, a bit of blueberries, a bit of cherries, some metallic bitterness, toffee, some light leaves. Pretty awesome. This, drink a liter I could. Awesome brew.
