caesar (6858) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2016
Tap @ Drinkers Pub Eindhoven, medium sample. Clear amber color, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel, toast, bit toffee, slight herbal again, bit more hoppy than the regular version. Taste is more smooth and full bodied then the regular alt, slightly more bitter, subtle caramel and toffee sweetness. Good stuff.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. Clovers and green-cut grass, surprisingly hoppy for an Alt. A little bready and rather sweet. Crisp carbonation, well in balance with the medium body. Sweet-ish finish. Very nice.

Shihuangti (2) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2016 does not count
floral, citrus, exotic fruit. Somehow like an IPA, not a typical Altbier. Not for everyday, but a nice special beer. Appearance: clear, amber-red, Taste: More sweet than sour, slightly dry average carbonation, medium body,
