Old grading with few comments: Quite sour taste of yeast, slightly fruity, rather thin flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle. Light hazy yellow colour with a white head. An unusual sweet and sour aroma. Yeasty, light sweet wheat, some fruity notes and and a strange sour flavour. Unusual german hefeweizen, but a cool story behind the beer.

I love the story behind this beer. In short, they revived yeast in a bottle of wheat beer retrieved from a shipwreck that was sunk in 1915 and brewed this beer with that yeast. It was a one-off back in 2000 or 2001. I had no idea at all what to expect from a 10 year old bottle of hefeweizen. The aroma was great though, full of nice butterscotch and caramel, with a very present vinousness and a slight green apply tartness. Taste was almost like carbonated water though, with some very slight notes of sparkling wine and butterscotch. Cool to have tried!

Fick prova en 10 år gammal flaska på bryggeriet, så ta betyget med en nypa salt. Ganska obef. doft, sträv, vinös och med tydliga toner av marsipan och mandel.

Small sample from a ten (or eleven?) year old bottle at Slottskällans Bryggeri in March 2011. Clear golden with a small white head. The aroma was very vinous and reminded of white wine with some notes of fruit and caramel. The taste was thin and watery. It was interesting to try an old Hefeweizen, but the beer had of course changed a lot during the years. Shame that I never drank the beer when it was fresh.

Bottled: Orange coloured. Unclear. White dense head. Sweetness, fruit, spice and yeast is present in this brew. Is quite watery and thin. A little old and dry in the end. Thanks Jeppe for sharing.
