big bubble in a medium brown color brew. The nose is sweeter, more perfumy with chocolate creeping out. As the beer warmed it became more like chocolate puffed wheat bites. . It doesn’t have the nose of the Hellas. Perfect balance. The body is modestly hoppy, rustic character with some chocolate notes. Again, it slowly dries out with low medium bitterness. Good stuff no doubt, but nowhere near as complex as the world class Hellas. Dedollewaitor (18836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2018

Dark amber. Aroma is treber, earthy, grass, dried leaves, not very buttery. Taste is grassy sharpness, with buttery chewiness, quite balanced, a bit of green tree juice. Leaves a tart grassy hinge in your throat. Not super satisfying. Still very good.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2019 Bottle from the brewery, 10days after being bottled, many thanks MoritzF! Beautiful deep ruby-amber color with creamy off-white head (this would deserve a 6 in Appearance). Aroma is bready, some young sulphuric Zwickel flavours, a touch chocolate and earthy. Taste is caramely, earthy, rustic, extremely moreish. Silky mouthfeel with natural carbonation. The aftertaste does not match the 'more' craving directly before swallowing, it's kinda roasted and rough. Extremely moreish, and even tastier than their Danzbier Hell - at least from the bottle. 8-5-9-4-16jonas (11432) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2017

Pour from the fermentation tank @ the brewery. Hazy amber pour with a frothy offwhite head. Malty, herbal & floral nose with rustic sourdough bread, caramel & those same lovely floral German hops as the danzbier. Honey, dried flowers, hay & minerals. Very light wood & citrus zest. Slightly sweet, bitter, malty, herbal & floral taste. Soft, round & tiny astringent mouthfeel. Spot on perfect balance between the malts & hops.
