A fairly unusual beer. Pouring a slightly murky bright gold with a head that fades ever-so-quickly, it has a musty, slightly smoky taste (almost cardboard) with a little bit of dried banana floating in the background. Very grainy with hints of barely-bitter hops. A very syrupy, viscous mouthfeel and a nose of damp wood, corn syrup, and fruit help to contribute to making this a very odd Zwickel.

Cloudy peach juice with lots of sediment. 7 Fingers of white lava moving head fades fast.

Cellar, earthy, peaches.

Bubblegum, fruity purple kids gum candy.

Medium thick, juicy body. Little carbonation.

Really unique, flavourfull brew. Found in Chiang Mai, drank here May 8th, 2016.

Pours hazy golden, small white head, fast to a thin lace.
Smells a bit like sugared biscuits, some light fruitiness, grains and some generic hops.
Lots of grains, some bread crust, splashed with some caramel, some cooked apple, faint banana chips and a touch of citrus. Some hints of honey, a small veggie note, low spices, bit of wood. Some faded hops are present, a pretty low bitterness that barely cuts off a bit of the sweetness. Nice aftertaste tho.
Medium body and carbonation, a bit syrupy, but just enough to keep it away from the "easy to drink" category.
Nice one, no bad things to say about it.
