Poured a murky brown with a large, frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet, rich, fruity malt. Quite a watery mouthfeel, flavour of red fruit and berry, very little aftertaste.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2012
On tap at the Pilgrim Hotel in Soest – Westphalia, Germany in the Pilgrim Hotel’s own glassware where it has a clear deep amber body supporting a full tall mocha like head. The faint aroma offers up vague glimpses of dark fruity esters and little else. The taste is slightly punchy with carbonation and it unveils some caramel malts, a hint of roasted malts and then growing into a mild level of prune and plum like sweet dark fruity esters. Nice flavor that went well with the meal.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle @ Weihenstephaner, Freising. Clear, dark red brown appearance with a tan head. Fairly mild, a touch fruity, a bit nutty aroma. A bit toasty grainy malty, light fruity cracker flavor. Not bad but a bit disappoint=ing.
