4/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a dimpled mug.

Look: It looks like a mug of melted caramel with a light cream colored top. There's not a lot of lacing, but the head settles to a nice film.

Aroma: Admittedly, there's some skunk but otherwise faint caramel, toasted malts, and toffee.

Taste: Very easy on the palate, soft caramel and toasted grains ease their way down the gullet. There's some tea tanginess in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and creamy, very easy going down.

Overall: Very drinkable, and very smooth. Nice price point as well.

3.56/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 0.5L swing top bottle into a flared pint glass. Moderate hand. Stamped 18513 06.

A: Rather hazy, honey-colored body with 1 finger of mostly white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Yeast, bready malt. Wheat-esque fruit notes, including apple and banana. Slight spice. Somewhat light, but nice.

T: Slightly spicy yeast opens. Tempered wheat and malt notes quickly transition to a noble hop-fueled bitterness. Closes mostly dry. Minimal alcohol presence. Lingering floral hops and hints of wheat in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate to high carbonation with a fairly prickly feel. Light to medium body. Lacks a certain smoothness.

O: The flavors on this one seems a bit muted. Somewhat muddled overall. The wheat notes were unexpected. I do like the hopping, which is probably the high point.

Prost!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Dark gold color with a pale white head. Great, strong smell that almost reminds me of an ESB. But the taste is great! Strong, but not overpowering, tastes engulf your palate.

Overall this is a great beer. I really like it. I don't think it's sold anywhere other than the Stuttgart area unfortunately. If anyone can get there hands on this beer, then you should definitely do it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed this swing-top bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark golden hue with a 2-finger white hue that quickly dissipates leaving a wispy lace.

S: Grain aroma followed by a mild lemon zest and mild hops.

T: Toasted malt flavor with that hint of lemon zest as was present in the smell. Finishes slightly hoppy and bitter.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent beer and worth a try but nothing I would drink on a regular basis.

2.83/5  rDev -23.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Picked this up at my local getraenkemarkt. Clear yellow pour with two finger quickly fading head and minimal lacing. Somewhat sweet and grassy nose with a hint of metal to it. The taste is slightly herbal with a touch of toasty malts adding to the sweetness. Slight bitterness on the finish, but the balance is on the sweet side. I'm getting a bit of the metal from the nose in the taste along with a hint of lemon. Slightly carbonated and tart finish, but the sweetness dominates and hurts the drinkability for me.
