Big thanks to Gerhard for providing the bottle for our tasting. Huge foamy white head to an unclear amber coloured body. Spotty lacing. Aroma of bitter fruitiness, hints of lemon and peach. Malt-fruity flavours, bread, earth, nuts and citrus. Smooth on the swallow. Mostly hidden alcohol. Well bodied (Grand tasting at the balcony, Fässla, Bamberg 12.10.2014).

Really nice beer. Not too overpowering considering the high abv. Nice finish and an easy drinker. I wish I was in the local market to get this beer on demand.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at the Midtown Biergarten. Looks good; a transparent golden orange that dissipates into lacing pretty quickly. Smells malty and hoppy (in that order). Mildly bittersweet and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Unoffensive, but underwhelming.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from bierpost. Golden colour with a dense white head and a lovely hoppy aroma. Full-bodied, intensive malt flavours with a decent sweetness supporting the aromatic hops and the pleasant bitterness. Bitter-sweet, packed with fruity hops. Delicious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bready and hoppy with some straw in the back. Balanced carbo combined with crispy moments. Dull in the end with some non-moderate bitterness. Lacking of something special in the nose but very easily drinkable. Shared with McTapps.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Bierothek in Bamberg. The beer pours out in a cloudy orange-amber colour with steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of hops and peaches with flowery hints. Taste of fresh hops, citrus, peaches, flowers, herbs, coriander, wheat and light bread. Hints of pine and oak. Very quaffable and highly enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Hazy, murky golden colour with a loose medium-sized and off-white foamy head. Rather discreet aroma: yeasty, mildly cara-malty with fruity, slightly flowery and sweaty hops. Moderately sweet and mildly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly bready malt character with a whiff of caramel, backed by citric and mildly piney hops; dry-ish and moderately malty finish with resiny and mildly fruity hops. 04.X.14
