Zlotta (4395) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 bottle. Huge gusher! Slightly hazy, golden amber with an off-white head. Slightly sourish, a bit funky and slightly fruity aroma of white grapes, gooseberry, lemon, some barnyard and a touch of oak. Quite sour, rather fruity and moderately funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, oak and barnyard, followed by a medium long, rather tart and very dry finish. Thin to medium body, very effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite nice!
