A slightly murky beer with a yellow golden color and a creamy, settling head.

Smell is sulfuric and yeasty with notes of straw and dough. All of this on top of a pilsner malty base. Some hints of lavender.

Taste is musty with sulfur notes. It tastes really like an unfiltered beer with too much yeast in it. The doughy notes included. There is a slightly sweet maltiness that has some decoction notes of Maillard and caramellized products.

"Naturtrubs Kellerbier in furstlichen Kelern gereift" on the label.
Hazy golden beer with a few bubbles rising gingerly along the edges. Big foamy off-white head has a creamy top and leaves thick patches of lace. Light bready aroma with just a hint of crisp citrus. Fresh out of the fridge there is almost no flavor. Maybe a bit of malt with a bite at the end, but that's it. A light bodied beer with a good kick of fizz after you swallow. A little maltier as it warms, but a bit stale, with mildly bitter lemony finish. Fancy bottle, fancy label, mediocre beer.

Another average German kellerbier. Orange color on the pour with light and airy head, aroma is bread and citrus. Flavor is bittersweet, leaning more on the sweet side. Drinkable...

Deep golden, quite dark. A good amount of a white, compact head. Pouring the yeast, it tends to become a little hazy. Anyway, beautiful appearance.
Fresh smell, malt, yeast, and fresh herbal hop.
Quiet taste, well balanced: yeast, breadcrust, that remains in the aftertaste. Then also herbal notes of hop.
Good texture. Even some white flowers hints (orange flowers), with a light sweet orange peel note.
Pleasant, drinkable.

500ml bottle, mindestens haltbar bis: 22.01,12.

It pours a cloudy gold with a nice-looking fluffy white head.

The smell is pretty standard, grainy with some slight hop notes.

The flavor has a pleasant citrus character along with some herbs. It is sweet, but not a ton The malt is also very tasty.

It looks and smells pretty average, but it does have a fresh, invigorating flavor

A finger of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is both fruity and earthy. Orange and lemon on the fruit side. Unique.
The flavor is wheat, orange and finishes sour.
A crisp texture with higher carbonation and medium body.
It's like a hefe had a child with a pils. Drink one if you can find it.
