COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schon die Kelten verfeinerten ihre Biere mit den Schätzen des Waldes. Gemäß dieser Tradition wurde das Waldbier 2012 durch die Zugabe von hocharomatischen Zirbenzapfen (Zirbelnüsse) veredelt. Die Zirbe als hochalpines Kieferngewächs ist ein österreichisches Naturkulturgut. Sie trotzt extremen Temperaturschwankungen und kann bis zu 1000 Jahre alt werden! Für das Waldbier 2012 wurden rund 10 kg Zirbenzapfen auf 2000 Metern Seehöhe aus dem Tiroler Radurschltal zu einer köstlichen Bierspezialität eingebraut. Diese streng limitierte Wadlbier-Edition ist 100% naturbelassen und unfiltriert. Sie zeichnet sich durch eine leicht rauchig-harzige Note aus, hat einen waldhonigartigen, leicht minzigen Körper und entfaltet die beste Qualität nach 1-2 Jahren. Das Waldbier 2012 harmoniert perfekt zu süßlich-aromatischen Wild- und Waldgerichten z.B. Schwammerl, zu allen Kartoffelspeisen sowie fruchtigen Desserts.

Saeglopur (747) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 15, 2015
750 ml bottle.
Orange, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, unstable, white head.
Aroma of spices, like cinnamon, various wooden notes, sweet malts.
Taste follows this prety much.
Quite light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes spicy, a bit sweet, a bit wooden.

Interesting. Also had this fresh in 2012 and it was pretty different. The spicy and wooden notes seem to take over after aging, while the sweet malt notes were more dominant back then. Can’t say which version I prefer, both good, but not outstanding in my opinion.
