COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reverence Series #1: Our first beer in our Reverence series of traditional European-style beers, is a sessionable German lager known as a Zwickelbier - a very old ’classic’ with a heritage traced back to the Middle Ages. Zwickel, pronounced ‘zv-ick-el’, is unfiltered, unpasteurized and finishes as a smooth-drinking, vitamin rich (from the yeast), naturally cloudy beer. Hops: Hallertau Malts: Two-Row Pilsner. Target stats (final stats TBD): 19 IBU, 4.8% ABV, 11.8 Original Gravity

This is cloudy pils yellow in the glass with a pillowy head of foam. It has a big noble hop nose--floral and lighly grassy. Solid malt character helps bring out a bit of lemon as well. I found this a little overcarbonated but that had little effect on drinkability. The finish is nice and crisp w/ some lingering sweetness and earthy bitterness.. This is a really good beer but not quite spot on, esp. as far as the texture.

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice light grain with a bit of grass and a touch of earthiness. Flavor has a lot of light grains with a nice earthy grass note underlying. Great drink ability.

A golden colored beer with a small white head. The aroma is light grain, earthy, and fruity. The flavor is bready malt and lightly fruity.

Taster at Upland Sourfest. From a bottle. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Wow. Awesome clean bready aroma, very satisfying. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Awesome change of pace from the 100 sours today. Good mild bitter, moderate sweet. Badass Zwickel. Want to session this.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2014
Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits beer tasting on 04/03/2014: The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium fizzy white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Toasted malt, spiced fruit and yeast in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, citrus and earthy yeast. The finish is grainy malt and subtle banana. Decent overall.

Another beer shared by Stan Hieronymus. Still geeked out. The beer had a rich translucent gold body with a film of white head. The aroma was herbal with some wildflowers; had a pastoral feel. There’s also a touch of white grape and maybe pear. The flavor brings much of the same; seems very traditional. The palate isn’t quite as soft as the Hefe, but is still soft and creamy overall. Would really love to try this in person someday. Thanks again, Stan!

Bottle from a trade. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty with citrus. Taste is light sweet. Follows aroma with a hint of lemon and orange. Light bodied with a slightly slick texture. A bit fizzy on the carb and a decently long finish. Pretty darn good.

1/6/2014. On tap. Golden yellow with a white head. Corn, grain and malty aromas with light hoppy flavors. Mild and simple beer without any complexity, yet very drinkable.
