2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
clear bubbly gold, medium white head, hint of lace. nose is sweet malt with a hint of fruitiness and a hint of spice. flavor is sweet malt, apple, spice. medium bodied, slightest hint of bitterness in the finish. a good example of a style that i so not care for...a bit too sweet for my palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a nice copper gold color. Softer tones of grains, malts, and some caramel flavors. Good fat and fuller feel with caramel and malty flavors on the palate. It’s pretty straightforward and not much nuance. But it does well with what it has

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Palack, Sörspecialista, Bp., Hu
Tejszínszerűen sűrű, de gyorsan illanó hab, első kortyra visszafogott édesség, ám mögötte már ott lapul a komló. Szorosan összetapadó páros ez, lassú zenére lejtenek, nem lehetne ’lekérni’ egyikeket sem. De túl tökéletes ez harmónia, egyvalami mintha hiányoznék... Talán éppen a karakter?
Bottled, Sörspecialista, Budapest, Hungary.
This beer is characterized by a thick and creamy, but quickly decomposing head of foam. At first taste it is moderately sweet, but the taste of hops is already lurking behind the sweetness. Bitter and sweet stick together inextricably, dancing a slow dance together and none could do without the other. But though the harmony is almost unbearably perfect, something seems to be missing – perhaps it’s the unique character?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark golden, a bit cloudy, with a frothy and durable head. Aroma is mainly malty, a bit citrusy, with some hops in the background. Taste is malty-sweetish and low on bitterness. Too one-dimensional and unbalanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear pale golden orange color with golden yellow edges and a 2.5 finger frothy, pillowy off-white head that very slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Floral, slightly earthy aroma with grassy hops countered by a sweet malt presence. Hints of grass and straw countered by sweet caramel malt as well as some biscuit and toffee in the nose. Faint light fruit.
Medium bodied with a crisp hop bite up front that gives off a dry, slightly bitter flavor that is nicely balanced by the earthy and sweet malt notes. Slight floral, pine flavor countered by slightly toasted malt, sweet caramel and toffee. Subtle peppery spice in the finish.
Overall this beer isn’t terribly complex but it’s very nicely balanced and pretty flavorful. The best beer I’ve had so far from Weltenburg.
