This is an awesome beer. Don’t know why it is so short in the ratings. I have sampled an array of German beers and this is very distinct. Almost Belgian in influence. Like oak casts. Must be tried to be appreciated.

This is a nice, interesting vienna that actually seems to be crossed with a pilsner. It is lighter/golden amber with a medium off-white head that is long lasting and leaves some fairly good, thin lace. The aroma is sweetish, mildly caramelly and leaf-like malt and dough with pine and herb hops and a hint of sulphur; very nice. The taste is similar, a little earthy, carmale malt body with lots of herbal, grassy hop flavour; tingly, with a light, persistent bitterness that just dominates the sweetish body. It is lighter than many viennas, but has a lot more hop character than usual, reminiascent of pilsners, with great balance between the elements. It is very drinkable.

Sweet and spicy with a firm malty body. Crisp and well-balanced. All in all a very pleasant beer.

Pours a hazy copper colour with a massive, rich foamy head. Sweet, fruity malt aroma. A fine malty taste withsome caramel notes, mild hops and a kind of fruty finish. Very refreshing. Medium bodied and beautiful mouthfeel. I almost didn’t want to swallow this stuff and keep that taste going on forever. A fine Vienna. I’ve got to get more of this!

Had an old bottle I guess a while ago and gave it a 3/5. Recently on tap at Deep Ellum and this beer damn near blew me away. .4 liter mug. Pours a bright clear coppery light amber with a massive fluffy lasting white cloudy head. Aroma is nicely sweet tons of Vienna and munch toasty fresh malts bready, adn a touch of light floral herbal hallertauer hops. Beautifully smooth full doughy fresh malt flavor, bready pils behind a nice fresh vienna lightly burnt toast, slight toffee, nuts and light floral and zesty hop notes towards the slightly bitter finish. Damn smooth and easy to drink- went great with my breakfast. Great beer, although i cant say this tasted like any other vienna in the world. More like a mix between a dunkel and a helles I guess?

500 ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium white head. Fruity aroma and taste with honey notes. Slightly fruity-sour palate.

clear amber with a beautiful tall, fine head. very nice, complex aroma of dark bread and a multitude of other malt-notes. some floral and herbal hops as well. well-balanced, but in context of the aroma surprisingly thin taste. good finish.

Good not great. That said, I’m not 100% sure what I was expecting. Decent flavor and all, just nothing that calls out "drink this again." But, quaffable.

Weltenburger Kloster Anno 1050 has a very thick, frothy, creamy, off-white head, a mostly clear, amber-gold, bubbly appearance, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, rich, somewhat sour, barley malt, and the taste is of the same, with sweet, white bread, mild hop bitterness, and a shadow of metallic. Mouthfeel is medium, and Weltenburger Kloster Anno 1050 finishes fairly crisp and highly drinkable. RJT

Low carbonation and golden-colored. Very mild. Not hoppy at all. Dangerously drinkable, yet not complex. Better as it warms!
