Sampled from a bottle at the brewery pub in Merkendorf in July 2006. I believe this beer is brewed for Christmas and Easter, and perhaps for a summer festival as well.

This festbier poured a clear, amber-red color with light tan foam that settled but clung to the glass in a few places. The smell was very malty with notes of caramel. The taste was malty and lightly sweet with flavors of caramel and brown malts. There was a mild hoppiness beneath the malt, and unfortunately a very light taste of diacetyl. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and very malty though not overly sweet. The body was medium-full with moderate carbonation feel. It was dry overall and the finish was very dry, almost astringent. This was a nice festbier, despite the unexpected diacetyl.
