Bottled at the brewpub. Red, hazy beer with a sweetish aroma. Flavours were predominantly fruity. Drinkable for a relatively strong beer. jonas (7986) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2005

Extreme earthy strawberry nose.
Colored like cloudy cherry juice, low head.
Strawberries and other berry notes - slightly sour.
Is it a fault or is it from the deep cellars? Either way i like it.
Relatively light body, mellow moutfeel.
Bottled, at the brewpub. Red brown, good beige head and gentle condition. Pleasant fruity berries and roasted barley in the nose, more fruitiness in the mouth with a hint of strawberry candy, some roasted notes and a faint butteriness. Sticky and sweet finish with some background roasted bitterness.

Murky, hazy nut brown appearance. Toffee and fruit in the aroma. Full bodied, rather dry for a bock, very malty. Bitter finish.
