Great classic (easily recognizable) label. Pours a golden yellow with a slight haze. Foamy head on top has some sparse lacing that does hang around quite a bit.

Aroma is a bit of corn grain and some slightly skunked noble hop twang.

Flavor is very complex for such an innocent looking beer. Some floral sweetness...especially honeysuckle, crisp hops (slight metallic), and some light apple or pear flavors. A slight spice is in here too, maybe chai tea or clove, but its pretty mild.

I like this brew a lot. A bit light in color for the Alt style, but otherwise great. This brew was quite a surprise for me, very flavorful and full bodied for such a light lager. Great subtly and smooth mouthfeel.
Incredible drinkability!

Heady, over-ripe, mushy bartlett pear fragrances are obvious from arm's reach. The color is orange, yellow and bronze with a substantial, cream-colored head. Tons of fermenting pear fruit to this beer complete with seeds and doughy, wheaty, dried herb-infused slate nuances.
The texture is rich, with vanilla and chai notes sprinkled across an improbably dry frame of soft wood, orange candy, ginger and cream. Wow! Olivier Humbrecht-like skill here. Stubborn greatness. This beer takes no prisoners and doesn't stand criticism well. Utterly uncompromising.
My first Alt was a brand called "Hannen," which was better than Ganter products, but second choice to anything by Rothaus. Hannen was mocha-flavored, thin-bodied and brown. This is better and 180 degrees different.

A foamy white head sits atop this yellow munster alt. A bit paler than I had envisioned. The head doesn't last long.

Very floral notes are present and a nice earthy aroma.

Sweet and delicate in the flavor. More floral and straw characteristcs. Simply refreshing and delicious. Crisp and light in character. Finishes fairly dry. There is a left over floral and sweet taste.

This is awesome! I have only had a few sips and I'm in love. A great alt and I wish I could get this more often.
