Bottle. Pours a deep, crystalline ruby with thin, off-white head. The aroma is very caramely and malty. So is the flavor. In fact, I was recently making some homebrew and boiled over the wort (messy), and when it hit the stove burner, it put off an aroma almost identical to that of this beer.

A nice straight forward festbier that is clean and malty. Well made and enjoyable. surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Unpastuerized half-liter bottle from the brewery, 12/06. Pours a brilliant dark copper with nice carbonation but just a thin coverage and little ring of an off-white head. Pleasant subtle aroma of lightly toasted malts which, with a touch of noble hops, imparts a lightly fruity (cherry) aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some nice toasty notes coming through. Pretty clean with just a little bitterness upfront and a smooth, balanced, although somewhat dull finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation, with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This is a solid German-sytle Fest and one of the better Weeping Radish offerings. TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottle. Reddish-orange pour. Small white head. Nose is malty and yeasty with some berry notes. Fair amount of fruit in the nose. Taste is also fruity and malty. Light spicy hops, berries, caramel and sweet malts. Yeast notes present themselves here too. I’ve started thinking that Weeping Radish beers are a lot like Legend, in the sense that they may have their own "house flavor" due to the yeast they use. It may be off-putting to some. Body is light-medium with very soft carbonation. Sort of slick and easy drinking. Ends with more malts, berry flavors and yeast with some caramel. Different but tasty!

light and straightforward. decent maltiness in the aroma and taste. on the thin side. sessionable. nice to see a fest out this time of year, and this is a good one though not a stellar one.

What is a Festbier anyway? It is certainly not an Octoberfest nor a Marzen or Vienna Style, It's just a Lager, nothing really special about it. Nice malty aroma with a slight bitter dryness too it. Not as smooth as some other good lagers. iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle, OBX, NC. Amber lager - good oily copper color, foamy white head initially, disappers quickly, solid mellow taste, slightly sweet malt and tracing of hops followed by a fairly crisp finish. Pretty darn good. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 15, 2005
I’m surprised I enjoyed this as much as I did, given how bitter it is. This beer has a fairly sweet caramel malt, and an uncomplicated flavor profile with a touch of medicinal hops that’s oddly enjoyable. I so rarely have Viennas, but they DO indeed have a distinct flavor. Though I can’t put it into words, that flavor is certainly present in this Weeping Radish brew. Very nice. mbgrayson (818) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUN 14, 2008
I had this one on the outer banks. It is full bodied and pours a nice amber. It is very drinkable and smooth. Nice taste. I would certainly have it again. Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle Pours a clear amber with a decent of white head. The heads has average lasting. Lacing is okay. Aroma was subtle with hints of floral hops and spices, Had a good carbonation. The flavor was drinkable but not very deep. Has a good mouthfeel. The texture is watery. Has an okay finish with a easy aftertaste. Refreshing and drinkable but not real memorable.
