2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a burnished copper with a strong tan head. Lacing is present, but not sticky. Toasty and earthy, this brew is malt forward with a slight sweetness and dry finish. The aroma is very tea-like. There is a strong spiciness to the beer, leaving a nice tingling sensation on the tongue. This can likely be attriubted to the yeast, as Weeping Radish is a wholly Reinhiesgebot brewery and does not add adjucts. Bittering hops rise towards the end.

Oct. 2005 - A very ordinary fest. Pour was reddish brown with minimal head and lacing. Flavor was kinda bland. Nothing offensive or nonenjoyable, but nothing to stand out, either. The best part about this is the cool looking cap. ;)

Pint @ Manteo location. Good aroma, sweet, yeasty, toffee, lite cherry. Clean orangy brown color, good head that slowly faded to nothing. Sweet flavor, kind of roasty, but like aroma, though it was a notch down from the aroma. Lite body, thin creamy mouthfeel, clean sweet finish. Good, but nothing to excite. Very traditional Vienna.

Unpastuerized half-liter bottle from the brewery, 12/06. Pours a brilliant dark copper with nice carbonation but just a thin coverage and little ring of an off-white head. Pleasant subtle aroma of lightly toasted malts which, with a touch of noble hops, imparts a lightly fruity (cherry) aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some nice toasty notes coming through. Pretty clean with just a little bitterness upfront and a smooth, balanced, although somewhat dull finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation, with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This is a solid German-sytle Fest and one of the better Weeping Radish offerings.

Had this one on draught in Manteo, North Carolina. Way overrated. Medium reddish brown pour with a filmy head and very little nose, cidery and somewhat dry but balanced. Not terrible, but not good either.

Pretty average micro. A little going on, and I mean a little. This is a good lawnmower beer. Crisp and easy to drink with enough malting to give it some character. A bit watery with a litle bitterness to remind you that this is an America fest beer.
