3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Draft at the brewpub served in one of their steins (Wasandis is also served in this), so I didn’t get a great look at the color looked like a slightly cloudy yellow-gold, and there was an uneven white head. Aroma of grassy hops, straw, butter, bready and pale malts, and yeast. Flavor followed suit for the most part, getting sweeter, maltier, and more buttery as it went down and warmed. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a grainy, malty mouthfeel. Don’t know a whole lot about this style but it was nice and easy to drink. RE-RATE: Had it again at The Royale. This is still not a style I know much about but this is a great, sessionable beer. I’d like to try more Z/K/Ls for comparison because I don’t think they’d beat this.
