Ritzn (1534) - GERMANY - JUL 26, 2017
From 2014. Brown with almost no head. Dried figs soy sauce maybe eggs brown sugar. Full bodied sweetness with lots of malt. However not spicy and very smooth and drinkable. Good.

The aroma features sweet wheaty maltiness, caramel, spiciness and dark fruitiness with a touch of banana. Taste is medium sweet, malty and fruity. High estery fruit profile, plenty of wheaty maltiness as well. The palate is medium to full bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Good fruity and wheaty dark weizenbock.

dnicolaescu (2616) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 18, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL. Hazy dark mahogany, bug beige head. Smells of dried bitter cherries and clove, winey notes. Not very malty and not hot at all. Chewy mouthfeel, moderately sweet and vinous rich taste - dried cherries, almonds and cloves, fermenting plums along with some acetone. Surprisingly, it is less sweet than Helles variety, and more sophisticated too. Very good.

Zlotta (3419) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
0.5 l bottle from ’Biermuda’, best before May 2016. Cloudy, dark brown with a huge, creamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and minimally fruity aroma of banana, clove, nuts and some dark ripe fruits. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and slightly fruity taste of banana, lots of clove, nuts, bread, chocolate and some dark ripe fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, yeasty-spicy and lightly warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Moreish and satisfying, great stuff!

Draught at Pigalle. Rich banana cake with a caramel edge, plum, clove, peppery notes, gentle sweet finish. Solid stuff, full-bodied and smooth, probably one of their best I guess.
