I passed this up at Nuernberger Alm despite it being a special offering (to explore Lindenbraeu more, which didn’t pan out), but thankfully Landbierparadies has plenty of this too. Quite fruity-hoppy, wonderful nose that’s varied and very enticing (although I could see Jeffy finding grape jelly in this, due to the distinct raisiny character, so it’s anyone’s guess what he will think). Very clean and balanced and creamy in the mouth...the first 4+ brew of the trip so far (and hopefully not the last). jfb (6984) - GERMANY - OCT 20, 2012

Bottle by 24.12.12. Toffee and caramel nose is a little gooey, pours a clear and pretty amber with a tan head. Taste is very sweet and sticky with lots of good toffeeish malt, berry and earth, hind of ash. Light body smooth with just a slight prickle, good malt waves.

In the glass is a gorgeous ruby red, dark beer with a fine, flat, long-lasting head. Smells caramel malty, minimal sugary soft and comfortable. Starts also very soft, malty and caramel-sweet. A pleasant bready note rounds out the flavor! To the center part, the sweet note dominates from now on to the finish! Bierkrug (2129) - - JUN 25, 2011
