Complex, with fresh hoppiness and cara-earthy maltiness, this is good, flavourful stuff.

Hazy amber with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, candy sugar, caramel. Taste is very sweet, candy sugar, some caramel, lightly astringent. Sticky medium body with moderately high carbonation. I found this way too sweet, and in may ways it seemed like Belgium invading Germany -- not an alt like Ive ever tasted.

dark orange colour, nice creamy head, beautiful lace, buttery, fruity aroma (peach), very smooth and sweet, lot of carbonation, long sour and fruity finish - complex and very good but dont tell me its an altbier ?!?

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2001
Very well-rounded, fruity (what is that? Banana? Apple?), fresh, slightly tart (similar to a Belgian-style ale), and a little sour (in a good way). If you like Belgians, you should like this beer. Even though its an Alt, I thought it had a lot of Belgian-style qualities to it. Good stuff!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Tea colored, quite chill hazed with a nice frothy head, sheets of lace. Nose is earthy, malt, sweet and the start also has a malt sweetness to it. Top is light, the finish is lightly hopped, mildly carbonated, dry, drinkable, but not great.

Deep hazy gold with a small white head that quickly disapates into a lacing around the rim. The aroma is of toasted malt,fruit and sweet malt. The flavor is tart,with a tangy malt character using a earthy hop chararcter and spice to lend to it's dry finish.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Slightly hazed amber with a snall white head. Sweet aroma, sugary and fruity with an interesting hop component. The flavor is also very sweet, a bit atypical for thestyle but I still enjoed it. Medium-full body with a fruity/sweet aftertaste.

guzzler67 (1685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2004
Murky, orange appearance with a small head. Fruity, sweet malt aroma that carried over to the taste. Well-hopped flavor added to the crispness and prevented this altbier from becoming too cloying. Clean finish.

Woops! What happened? Not a drain pour - or is it? Would say that something went way wrong here. Aaron suspected candy sugar, and I have to agree that it seemed present. With the ALT in the title I was expecting a certain tannic quality to be there somewhere or at least not be saturated with the type of swetness that did nothing to bring malt to mind. Didnt taste infected, but perhaps an infection of another sort. What was being attempted here?

Draught. Bartender noted it was sweeter than in previous years. Certainly sweet, but the body held up this sweetness nicely. I always thought of altbier as a lot dryer. This one emphasizes "Fest" more than "Alt". Think of it more as a Marzen.
