I don't think any words of mine could adequately describe the subtle magnificence of this beer. An extraordinary ordinary beer.

ekstedt (6790) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2015 From a tap at the brewpub. Clear golden, medium white head. Bready aroma with a touch of lager yeast notes, herbal hops. Medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness. Elegant.

Koelschtrinker (20412) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Vollmundig hopfiger Antrunk mit angenehmen Herbetönen. Der Hopfen bringt dabei auch bittere Noten mit sich, hält sie aber weitgehend zurück.Spritzig, der Hopfen breitet sich im Abgang weiter aus. Gut!

Tap @ Brewery. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of Chewy caramel, quite bready, light citrus, light minerals, light wood, quite fruity in a way. Taste is rather malty, very czech alike, a solid hop kick with citrus and fruits. World Class.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear deep golden, creamy head. Pleasant aroma of grassy hops and floral perfumy malt. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Pleasant bitterish finish. Typical Franconian lager with it soft edgelessness and superb drinkability.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Bright gold. White thick alive head. Aroma is really fresh grain. Great quaffability with minerals on the tongue. Great vollbier balance, sweeter than kellerbier, has a nice hop but a stunningly strong grain background. Nutty, dry, delicious.

3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2015 Witzgall Vollbier Helles, draft at the brewery in Schlammersdorf, a noon start to the day’s bike ride involved this simple but lovely crisp and clean lager. sharp, clear gold body with a hugely-rocky head, I don’t know how not to give this a five, it’s a swimming pool of fluff. yeah. pretty straightforward pale malt sweetness (honey, crackers) and light edel hop nose (spice, dried grass, fruit cocktail) with a smacking, crisp finish (minerals, sweet corn, minor apple juice), mostly clean. quaffable and delicious, a very good helles, but quite basic. continued down the road to Hallerndorf where we found some of the best lager around from Lieberth.

May 2013: Clean, minerallic, crisp, lightly sweet, medium to low bitterness. subtle spalt lemon spice aroma hops. toasty, clean, quiet malt flavor. nut oils and cracker-y toasted malt.

March 2015: Tangy, minerally, malty, bright, carbonic, lightly peppery, more hoppy than I remember: lemon-pepper-spice hoppiness. Super tangy and fresh, malty and perfectly clean, bright and juicy and oily, fragrant and lip smacking, hoppy as shit without much bitterness. Lovely fucking beer. Honeysuckle and flowers come to mind, and something like banana candy, which confuses me, but it’s not esters, seems malt-derived.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 At the brewery from tap and later in Berlin from a bottle. Rerating this. Still very good but I have a bunch better lately. Still worth going to the brewery for the experience alone. Just a great place to drink beer and forget about ratings :)

rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2016
Draught at Brauerei Witzgall, Hallendorf. Clear golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Great bready biscuit aroma, cereal notes, fruity notes. Biscuit flavor, caramel, cereal notes, slightly nutty, some grassy hops. Amazing beer.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2015
on tap at the brewery. clear, honeyed shade of golden with a billowing, foamy white head; gentle aroma of dandelions and freshly cracked grains; plenty of bitterness with a slightly syruppy malt character, freshly mown grass; no wonder the locals looked like they’d settled in for the day
