Fairly basic. jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle, Wolnzach version. Cloudy, light floaties. Slightly yeasty, grassy nose, fairly restrained. Medium light body, not chewy enough. Pretty unspektacular finish. Needs more character. Idiosynkrasie (8214) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015

Seems like maybe some promise lies under the covers, but the clunky/industrial flaws are prominent and difficult to ignore (in both nose and mouth). A drain pour, but at least the brewer’s heart was in the right place. lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015

Draft at the brewery. This is hazy and golden. A lemon grass and bready aroma. Some grain is tasted with gentle hops with light fruit and flowers. There is a hint of spice. This is subtle and tasty. I love the low ABV. tiong (7754) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2015
