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

Dogbrick (9181) - 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.

Which I could sit down with a session of this. Where it stands it is a good lager and one of the few in the style in the US.

Bottle. Lactic barley malt and hay aroma. Hazy medium yellow with giant white head. Mildly sweet lemon barley malt and moderately bitter herbal/hay flavor. Pretty good.

3fourths (8497) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2012
bottle. lightly hazed golden body and white head. sourish and sweet lemon, wheat, bread dough, spice / herbs, etc., but all with noticeable cooked corn DMS, very sulfuric, fizzy, acidic, etc. nice to see them try a zwickl, and you can tell they’re getting the foundation close, but the off-flavors and aromas are difficult to take.

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, biscuit, nice honey, hints of floral and spicy notes. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, nice crisp crackery notes, some floral notes, finishing dry, clean. Nice version.

DocLock (8400) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft notes from Lansdale Brew Fest. Poured hazy gold with white clingy head. Nose was pale malt, hopcitrus, with a smooth flavor of the pale malt, hopcitrus, complexity from the non-filtration, and this is a definite beer you could gladly drink all day.

Quack-Duck (8383) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2015
Euro2-bottle from Bierpost. Hazy deep golden with a persistent white head. Dry hoppy nose. Light-bodied, good malty start with a nice yeasty-fruity touch and some dry, slightly dusty and also slightly resiny herbal hops in the finish. Good beer and true to the style.

DrSilverworm (8177) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2014
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.

deyholla (7720) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2014
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.
