My first beer of the three at the Brauhaus during a visit on a very cold early evening on 19th Jan 2014.

Murky orange body, the full head hung around for most of the drink.

Grassy, citrusy and bready notes in the aroma, some yeast hints as well.

The taste was fruitier but with the aforementioned grassy, citrus and bread smells also noticeable in the flavours within the mouth.

Full bodied for a Helles and also fairly full of flavour.

Not bad at all, my wife liked this the most of the on-tap beers we tried in the place.

Cheapest beer on the tap tap there. And certainly very different from most German beers I've had. It's actually sort of in the direction of a hefeweizen. It's cloudy orange in color, frothy head with moderate retention. Yeasty in the nose but almost like some tripels I've had. Smooth, almost fruity orange and light. My biggest complaint about it is that it does seem kinda watery. Otherwise it's a quite good.

Beer-yellow turbid and opalescent. White foam, discreet, compact and medium thin.
The beer is probably too young to be served, not yet fully matured. It caused a very slight smell of malt, a little hops and above all a clear presence of yeast.
Even in the mouth you will feel the same notes.
Per se the beer is not bad, you can find interesting potential, but you can also understand that it is not ready: is rough, unfinished, incomplete. There is also some bitter in the aftertaste, but then you come back on more sweet lines and yeast note. To retry when maturation is completed.

On-tap at the brewpub in Spandau. Served in a mug. Very cloudy yellow with some darker highlights. Large foamy white head and leaves excellent lacings.

A little light on the aroma. Grassy malt and a little bit of wheat, but I couldn't get that much.

Wonderful grass seed malt gives way to some very nice apricot-like fruitiness. Accompanied by nicely floral hops. A certain wheat character to it that results in a slight dry finish.

Wonderful mouthfeel. Creamy, yet very crisp. A perfect spring/summer session beer. Really quite good.
