It seems this beer is available afterall. Half litre flip top bottle. A: Pale amber, hazy,
small off white head which faded. S: Cork and
some real farmyard funk, not overly pronounced
though. T: Fruit on the turn, some sharpness, hint
of charcoal at the finish. M: What there was in the way
of carbonation faded, smooth, body thick for the
strength. O: Nothing outstanding, not bad, not
great either.

Half-litre flip-top bottle: BBD 11 Jul 2013. Poured into a Veltins badged stemmed tulip three times, each pour getting more hazy as the sediment began to move.

The beer is a dirty brown to start, it didn't want a head, but some white foam appeared briefly before falling in on its self.

Malty, yeasty and earthy in both the smell and taste, too sweet at times, too murky towards the end of the last pour and with a strange herbal undertone throughout. A sort of malty molasses soaked sack of potpourri is how I can best describe it.

Different and not unpleasant, one bottle however was enough.

Glowing amber/orange beer develops a fine haze after the last bit of beer is poured. Tall, dense, off-white head fades slowly leaving scattered patches of lace. Inviting aroma has hints of oranges, fresh flowers, and a pinch of raw malt. Moderately full malt base holds up fresh hops that come off as orange tasting. Finishes with a mild grapefruity bitterness that is stronger then expected, but enjoyable. It tastes like a Pale Ale, which is weird because that sure as heck isn't what a Zwickl is supposed to taste like. I like it, but it ain't right. The body is smooth and soft. Just a bit sharper then a Hefeweizen. The numbers I give this are based on what I think of the beer, and not how the beer should be. Maybe this is a freak bottle, but damn it's good!

The beer is not listed on the breweries website, but I'm assuming it's a new release and not a seasonal brew.
