Look: It pours amber and clear wtih a white head. Head retention is very good.

Smell: It has a grassy aroma up front with a slight bit of caramel.

Taste: It has some malt that is bread like in the flavor with grassiness and a bit of caremel. It has some herbal qualities as well.

Feel: It has a meduim body with an aftertaste leaning towards the bitter side.

Overall, it's refreshing and has some decent flavors.

I love this beer. I really like the older Marzen style for Oktoberfest, and so I was suspicious of the newer, lighter Festbier style of this beer. Pours a dark yellow. Head falls to thin layer. Smells a bit grainy and metallic, but not much aroma. Malty, bready, but with a small, bitter note that fades. The aftertaste opens up, and feels well-rounded, balanced, and delicious. Smooth mouthfeel, light carbonation.

Hazy, dirty straw colored with a light foamy head. Smell is wet and grainy and fruity; a bit of pear and plum, yeast, and caramel. Taste follows. Fruit and caramel upfront, then slightly bitter floral hops in the body, and a slightly soured wheat finish. Feel is smooth, carbonation moderate.
Got six at 4 bucks a few months after bottling, so maybe it’s past it’s prime. Still plenty enjoyable, though.

Cooper amber on the pour, with slight head and ample lacing. Aroma is slight whiff of bread. Taste is bready malts and crackers, finish is crisp and clean. A solid festbier. Not my favorite, but in the conversation....

Allgäuer Büble Bier Festbier, 5.5% - a light and delicious Festbier! Prost!

-Look: Medium copper with a thick lively head, leaving heavy rings.
-Smell: Light caramel malts and floral aromas, honey and brown sugar.
-Taste: Toasted rye crackers and light caramel, sweet brown sugar*.
-Feel: Thin and dry, loose and slippery, goes down fast.
-Overall: A very good Festbier that I'd have again!

*This lightly sweet brown sugar flavor is delightful, and I bet that's why it has a following!

12 oz. bottle, looks like it was bottled May 18, 2022, expiration August 18, 2023. My first beer from this brewery, and my first beer listed under the style of Festbier, which according to BeerAdvocate is the modern day equivalent to an Oktoberfestbier, so that's what I'm expecting.

Poured into Brasserie D'achouffe stemware.

A - Pours a coppery amber orange body, some ok clarity, and little over a finger's worth of frothy khaki head. Looks pretty good.

S - Nose brings in some crisp bready malts, with slight notes of mineral water & coppery metallics. Soft notes of cream, earth, green apple come through. Pervasive mineraly well water type aroma throughout. A little dusty.

T - Taste brings the same; some crusty bread malts, green apple, herbal earth, mineral water. Notes of cream & green apple linger on the finish. The bottle does say this was brewed with hop extracts in addition to actual hops, but any fresh or piney, or i guess "American" hop flavors are absent. Typical taste per the style I'd say.

M - Feel is smooth, medium-light in body, easy drinking. Apt carbonation. I just burped.

Overall, an easy drinking beer from this German brewery, I'd be interested in trying more from them, and also in trying more beers listed under the Festbier heading. A nice intro the this style.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 5/10/22, so 4 months old.

Looks nice enough, clear golden amber body with a decent white head. This persists in lesser form throughout leaving scattered lacing.

Malty aroma with a touch of old bread.

On tasting, clean, slightly sweet, smooth, mostly malty with a fleeting hop note.

Mouth above medium, finish slightly drying.

Overall, while not unpleasant, and quite clean, it doesn't have the character of the better festbiers.
