Had on tap in Hallstatt Austria. This was definitely a very unique beer. A very hazy color hits you right away with a 3 finger foam head. Very carbonated and refreshing taste. As everyone wrote, not a common beer and it struck me at first as a pilsner but I was wrong. Very florally and vibrant smell and the taste was the same. Nice yeasty taste with a mild amount of hops. I can't put my finger on this one, but something I may need to bring back to Boston. Great find.

50 cl bottle from a six-pack brought back from Austria.
A cloudy golden beer. Big fluffy white head. Looks appealing.
Very yeasty aroma, some lemon zest and a little grain. A hint of sulfur pops up from time to time.
The flavor follows the nose but has an extra oomph of malt that rises through the yeast and a super pleasant grassy hop flavor in the end that gives a touch of spice but doesn't dry out the palate too much.
Nice and smooth, but with the extra fullness that is expected from a zwickl(unflitered, full of yeast.)
Very Very enjoyable zwickl, with a little something extra(fuller malt flavor and a touch more hops) that separates it from the pack.
If I could go back to Austria tomorrow for a few more 6-packs I would.

Poured a cloudy but bright golden honey color with a fluffy white head.
Smelled like fresh honey wheat bread with some floral notes tht matched nicely. Taste is similar, with bread and yeast forward profile and a honey aftertaste that is not cloying but definitely sweet.
Good carbonation and mouthfeel that rounds out a well balanced, easy drinking beer.
Happy to find this on tap in Chicago and excited to drink again on a planned trip to Austria this fall.

Enjoyed on tap in the Soldier Field South Lot during our tailgate before the Bears vs. Packers game. Special thanks to Matt from Laschets Inn for providing a half barrel.
Pours a hazy pale gold topped with a thick, creamy two finger bright white head. Superb retention and thick, splotchy lacing. Light fruit, hints of grass, floral notes, and fresh bread dough on the nose. Opens with grass and grain notes, joined by bready, yeasty malt, a touch of honey and sweet cream, apple blossoms, and apple and pearskin. Heavy light body to very light medium body. Silky mouthfeel with a touch of creaminess. This is one darn good brew and my favorite zwickl to date. Highly recommended.

Cloudy orange-gold with a creamy and durable tan head. The head leaves plenty of stick lacing.
Aroma: Yeasty, earthy lightly spicy
T: Better than indicated by nose. Hops are less earthy and more spicy than in the nose. Hint of apricot.
M: Near medium body with somewhat aggressive carbonation.
O: tasty and highly drinkable.

500ml bottle that I brought directly from Innsbruck, Austria.
A - Pours a cloudy, even muddy, light amber body, with a nice foamy white head. Okay head retention and nice lacing.
S - The aroma is very yeasty (it isn't a bottle-conditioned beer for no reason) and fruity. Apple and pear notes, some bread, hints of citrus and caramel.
T - Mmm, this is much more flavourful than I expected! Juicy apple and pear flavours dominate the palate, then leaving some room for caramel, bread, and a bit of earthy hoppiness. Some bitterness and plenty of breadiness in the after-taste. Also a hint of honey. Nice!
M - Light-to-medium (approaching medium) body to it. Very smooth and soft on the pallate. Low carbonation makes for excellent drinkability.
O - Hands down, this is a tasty beer and one of the best unfiltered lagers I've had to date. Refreshing, drinkable and flavourful. I'm glad I picked this one at that supermarket in Austria.
