Draft. Poured a hazy orange with a medium off-white head and some lacing. Sweet aroma but not overpowering with a caramel note as well. Same combination came through in the taste. Easy on the palate and very drinkable.
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Medium color and body. Nose has pretty strong esters and fruitiness. A bit too much sweetness and body to the flavor. Slight hint of alcohol. A pretty good example of the style, but not terribliy drinkable. BVery (10716) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012

Tap at Mad Fox. Pours extremely hazy deep orange. Thicker white foam. Good lacing. Nose is yellow apples and spiced apple pie. Taste is herbal hoppy, a tad sharp on the bitterness, some baked apple. Palate is minerally, doughy, slight metallic twinge. Not too bad. Got a ho-hum review from my German beer pals. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
