COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Puntigamer Winterbier is a bottom fermented, amber coloured Vollbier and is clearly more lighter and pleasant than conventional "Bock beers". Brewed especially for winter, it’s concentrated to a higher alcohol content using the ice beer method. With its light note of caramel it provides during the winter days a beery drinking treat. 13.8°

omhper (25132) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2011
Bottled, thanks bolagshataren. Clear golden, no head. Neutral nose. Sweet and fruity, medium bodied with plastic mouthfeel. Void and tasteless, save for some boiled begetables. Almost no bitterness. Typical Brau Union Österreich standard...

Bottle, 6.0%. Lagery aroma. Clear grey amber colour. Semi-stable, frothy white head. The flavour is vinous with some alcohol. Has a little sour note along with a malty and spicy touch. Good mouthfeel.

Marko (5711) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 9, 2007
0.5l bottle purchased at some Spar near Leibnitz
This poured a nice bronze colour with a bedium sized head. Unimpressive malty/grainy nose. The taste is weak. A pleasant, chewy mild hopiness (that was lemony and/or metallic at times) is the focal point of this one and it continues nicely into the aftertaste, and I dig that. One can, however feel just a week, "skittish" crude malty, maaaaybe even alcoholic taste. The taste differs a lot from the crude alcohol-crude bitterness assault I recieved from some other Austrian pale bocks, and it’s understandable, as this isn’t exactly a true bock but an ice beer. So "ordinary" and yet it eludes most conventional categories.

2.5
Geiserich (4521) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours clear yellow with minimal white head, Aroma is malty with some hops. Taste is sweet malty, boring.

2.7
Werckmeister (3184) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 25, 2015
bottle at home. golden shiny color, very small white head. smells grainy, light flowery and sweet, hints of spices. full body, tastes grainy, alcoholic, sweet, lots of carbonation, light bitter dry finish

2.3
TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2013
Bottle sampled at omhper, thanks. Thin white head. I find both flowers and fruit in the aroma. Not much in the taste but no impurities either.
