SimplySike (801) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2012

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle from Nina’s. Pours a yellow colour with a rocky beige head. A vegetal aroma of cabbage, musty yeast, caramel, lemon, oak and apple seeds. Similar flavours with a vegetal, slightly apple-like linger again. Quite dry to finish with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced. OK.

stevoj (2008) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2012
half liter flip top bottle poured into glass mug, thick, fluffy head stays with the beer for a while. This unfiltered bier has a hazy deep golden color. Smooth, mellow flavor, leaving a slight sharp note on the tongue. Not as dark and musty as some of the zwickls I’ve tried, but overall a pretty nice beer.

Bottle, many thanks to Quack-Duck. Hazy golden color with medium long lasting white head. Strong malty aroma. Taste, sweet malty, yeasty with earthy notes. Light bitterness in fruity finish. Drinkable beer.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2012
Swingtop; a self-pourer. These bottled Zwickls are feisty little chaps- have a glass at the ready. Orange hazy with an uneven, climbing white head. Mixed-up, yeasty aroma; slightly vegetal, thistle-like with fresh sappy hop over a warm malty base of peanut butter on toast. Even some lemon rind and banana. Champagne-like, airy, effervescent with more of that fine, sappy, earthy hop character mingling with sesame and toasty malts. Carbonated to the point of fizziness but wickedly easy to knock back once it’s stoppped foaming. An education. And quite unlike any beer I’ve ever had. Except the zwickl I had the other night.

Holy (833) - GERMANY - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Bierkrug - as always, thanks! This beer is pretty tasty, but I didn’t know what a Zwickl was before looking it up on Urban Dictionary:
A. To steal something in a rude manner.
B. To be exceptionally awkward.
C. Someone who is kind of a huge bitch.
Thanks Urban dictionary!
