Pours a dusky golden amber color. It's fairly cloudy. The head is small and white and fades to a ring of bubbles after a couple minutes. The aroma is rich and fruity with malt flavors. There's a big grape flavor on top of honey sweetness. Milder than expected caramel. Definite apple cider tone. A touch vegetal. They did a good job minimizing contributions from the yeast and hops. The taste starts off with some light sweetness before taking on a very German low abv beer flavor. Drier than expected. Some spice. Earthy finish with some more of that grape flavor. A little bit of cider. That grape flavor gives it a funny aftertaste. It's almost boozy without any hop bitterness to clean things up. Mouthfeel is light, and carbonation is mildly prickly. Interesting beer. Not what I expected. This seems like a much more difficult experiment to pull off commercially than the single hop beers, and I think Cismontane did a fairly good job. The beer does a good job showing how much of the flavor of many German styles comes straight from the malt, and on top of that, they made a pretty tasty beer. I was expecting a bit of a chore after the first few sips, but I'm actually enjoying the beer. It's simple as can be and cleanly shows off some tasty malt.

Handsome hazy amber in the Aventinus Weissbier glass. Thick creamy foam and plenty of sudsy mouthfeel. Flavor is grainy with a sweet touch. Rather odd musty smell. Hints of something like oxidation, that sweet vermouth taste.
Light bitter note at the aftertaste. Hints of lemon flavor without the tartness. This could be a fairly decent quaff, but rather than crisp it's more of a murky cereal flavor. Ends with a salty and slightly mushroomy taste. From the 500 ml bottle purchased for $4.59 at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
