My first altbier! Pours murky dark yellow with a small white quickly receding head. Aroma of sweetly tart cherries, some alcohol, not much else. Flavor is sweet up front with the cherry and honey, then fades into pilsner malt characteristics. Light and lots of carbonation, so would be fine for a hot day. Overall, a small step up from a pale lager if you ask me. Meh.

Pours clear gold with a nice, two finger head. Delicate smell of floral hops.

Crisp grainy flavor that has an interesting twang in the finish. A touch of lemon and citrus, followed by flowers and earth mid-palate. Super easy to drink, light-medium bodied. Carbonation is good for style. Really tasty and -- without any doubts -- a great session ale.

A delightful alt beer. I've grown to expect alt to appear darker, but I can totally take a pass at this because of its flavorful goodness. Great on a humid summer eve with a nice cheese plate -- would probably be wonderful with grilled sausages.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- hazy golden with a white head that dissipates quickly

S- bready, yeasty smell, with a hint of something zesty, like orange marmalade

T- slightly sweet bready malt with a sour finish, in tune with that marmalade smell

M- Well rounded, right amount of carbonation to drink a bunch of, very smooth

O- overall I like this, but I think it is a little too sour to be a really good Alt. There is not enough malt flavor and aroma or bitterness, and a little too much fruit/yeast ester going on to make this a quaffable Alt.

Pinkus Münster Alt has a thick, foamy off-white head, a hazy, somewhat bubbly, yellow-golden appearance, and a fairly heavy amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of very aged, cellared, over-ripe light fruit, dank grain, and mold, plus sweetness and an unusual hop zing. Taste is of those things, plus lemony sweetness, light bitterness, biscuit, and water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with some carbonation prickle, and Pinkus Münster Alt finishes lager like- crisp and refreshing. Overall, this is a very different beer, and I would recommend it to the adventurous types.
