4.34/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle into a pils style glass.

Bright lemon and a murky faint green color. Opaque with some swamp like hues but a neat color. The head comes out really bright on this even more so, just shining with three fingers of foamy frothy retention and scattered pill like lacing.

The beer smells like a giant breaded dumpling. Mild herbal hop notes, but huge thick bready character and giant balls of soft rolled dough. Some faint spicy notes as well. Just fantastic.

Palate comes nicely. The mouthfeel seems nicer than the flavor it appears, but it still delivers. Slightly chewy notes with a thick spiced honey quality without the sweetness, Mild hints of citrus fruit manage to sneak in strangely but it seems more tropical. It's very hard to put these into words. Perhaps a light melon and cantaloupe really is what it is, yeah that's what I am feeling.

Great palate overall, but there's just something missing on the oomph factor to hit this into the stratosphere. It is though a fantastic Zwickelbier truly unique and wonderful.

Half litre bottle, very pale colour, medium head, clear which is not the norm for a Zwickel. Grassy, hoppy aroma with hints of straw. Very crisp and easy to drink, no bitterness, grassy and slightly malty taste. Was easy on the palate but had some gas. Overall I'd say this was more of a Helles/Export than a Zwickel but it was a very good thirst quencher.
