hauxe (672) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017
Pours gold with a light haze. The white head soon fades. Aroma is bubblegum, apple juice, fresh dough, spice. Taste is mostly sweet but with a complex undertones: bubblegum, apple, plum, pepper, clove. An interesting mixture that works. The finish is long, dry, bittersweet, spicy, and warming. Body is medium with a nicely balanced carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle from Hofstetten: Aroma ist a nice mix of fruits, yeast and spices. Notes of oranges, grain, honey, Belgian yeast, candies. Flavour is also very fruity with oranges, candies and honey but also herbal hops. Ends light herbal bitter. Nice and round.

Goodness above, Thats a crashing amount of things going on, Lovely aroma does not prepare you for the explosion in the mouth of softness and a giant harshness and tart dryness that flows, sweet, sharp, soft and brutish. Loved it !

Oh man, my review vanished.

Pours a golden color. Lots of sediment, and chunks floating about. Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head is white, took several attempts to pour it all into the glass.

Aroma is bready, spicy, banana, grape, brown sugar, yeast.

Taste is much of the same. Yeast, coriander. Brown sugar, banana. Ooh, touch of vanilla. Banana.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. You taste and feel the alcohol right away. Well, not so much taste it, but detect it. Smooth, but slightly astringent.

Overall, this is pretty good. I like it. Its both easy and hard to drink. I would probably buy it again, if the price was right.

adavis234 (287) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Nice golden pour with a light, white head and a little haziness. Flavor is yeasty and sweet - a spicy fruit flavor with hints of honey and a soft alcohol finish. Perhaps not the finest beer but a very enjoyable experience nonetheless.
