The beer is hazy pale amber, has a white high head that settles slowly leaving little lacing. Few curtains.

The smell is fresh lemon, white dough and bread.

Starting sweet, white bread, some lemon marmalade, a hint of spicy yeast.

Medium low carbonation, smooth and refreshing, a slightly dry sourness.

A smooth nice mellow beer, relaxing and nice.

Bottle, labeled as Benediktine Plankstetten. Surprisingly good organic beer.
Very nice cloudy deep golden colour, with a head that fades quickly, though it leaves a good lace.
Fresh smell of grains, pine, apricot and banana, with a bit of citrus.
Too light body, some more carbonation would make a very good beer. Taste of oranges, malty and fruit.

Murky apricot colored beer with a short dense head that fades quickly to a film. Interesting contains a mix of musty cellar, tangy citrus, and candied flowers. Apricots mix with light bready flavors and a hint of rye for unique combination. The body is moderately light, and the low carbonation and faint sourness go well with this interesting beer. An enjoyable beer with plenty going on. If you like a little adventure you'll love this.

A murky orange beer with a small head and little visible carbonation.

Smell is very grainy/ wheat-like with husky and straw notes. A great malt backbone which gives the beer some honey notes and a slightly sweet smell.

Taste is wheaty and grainy, but not as full as the smell suspects. There is very little carbonation, which is a shame, because this really would have made it a great fresh summerbeer, very much like a witbier. The maltiness plays second part and appears to be semi-sweet, but the beer never gets sticky. Bitterness is almost absent and invisible.

I almost didn't find this "Plankstetten" (no 'er'), which is brewed for Benediktinerabtei.

A: Golden-bronze; white head, a little retention, no lace.

S: Bready malt, not much aroma.

T: Mild flavour, bready, hint of earthy hops and bitterness.

M: Light body, surprisingly creamy. Moderate carbonation.

D: Very good.

Organic beer, made with 50% of spelt malt.

Yellow in color, almost orange. Slightly hazy. White head, average compactness.
In the smell prevails a cereal touch, with a hint of hop. It's a particular smell, probably dued to the spelt malt (it is the first spelt beer we tasted).
Cereal in the taste too, and even a sweet note, but not unpleasant.
Light in body, and so in the aftertaste, with a hop that remains some time.
