Not as light and fruity as some biere de gardes. Lots of amber and malts. Some nutty taste. But I prefer the farmhouse style a bit more.

Clear amber color with a fine off white head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a fine carbonation level. Tad sweet and a bit oily texture. Bready, toffee and dried fruits in the flavor.

Strong honey aroma dark amber, low creamy head. Woody and sweet honeyish tastenotes. medium bodied but with a heavy attitude. Sugary sweet, almost vineous aftertaste. Seems to be a bit out off balance to me.

i hosted a bit of a beer tasting for my mum and her friends and they seemed to like this the best. it was use by 2002 which i guess is why it was slightly more subdued and less spicy than i expected. rich ruby colour. a full over-ripe apple sweetness smooths into some marzipan and then dries out with some stale tea - certainly the cellaring did it some good

3.4
Idiosynkrasie (7970) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with average, thick, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Fruity aroma delivers a plethora of red and blue berry notes, additional notes of sweet and sour cherries as well as a touch of plum. Taste is moderately sweet, slightly sugary, fruity, notes of cherry, hints of plum, all with a minimally artificial jelly bear touch; leafy overtones in the finish. Unsatisfying discrepancy between aroma and taste.
