A fairly unusual beer. Pouring a slightly murky bright gold with a head that fades ever-so-quickly, it has a musty, slightly smoky taste (almost cardboard) with a little bit of dried banana floating in the background. Very grainy with hints of barely-bitter hops. A very syrupy, viscous mouthfeel and a nose of damp wood, corn syrup, and fruit help to contribute to making this a very odd Zwickel.

Pours hazy golden, small white head, fast to a thin lace.
Smells a bit like sugared biscuits, some light fruitiness, grains and some generic hops.
Lots of grains, some bread crust, splashed with some caramel, some cooked apple, faint banana chips and a touch of citrus. Some hints of honey, a small veggie note, low spices, bit of wood. Some faded hops are present, a pretty low bitterness that barely cuts off a bit of the sweetness. Nice aftertaste tho.
Medium body and carbonation, a bit syrupy, but just enough to keep it away from the "easy to drink" category.
Nice one, no bad things to say about it.
