Character: malt, bright fruits, herbs and straw. Bitter, tart, sour and woody. Overall, a surprisingly intense filling that leaves a spicy heat in the stomach.
Rating: No matter how strange it sounds, I find that mixture of malt, bitter almond oil, fermented fruit acid and a tart wood taste not that bad. Not a candidate for a large bottle, but good drinkable. Compared to the 12er and 16er has the 14er for me even slightly ahead. I find it more independent and full of character. I have 84 points today.
Basic flavors: malt, citrus fruits, fruits, grass, herbs
Description: Quite light and light-fruited. Immediately malt is present - together with orange peel, apples, pears and a herbal note that reminds me of thyme and oregano. Above all lies a grassy freshness. Similar to the 12er with a tendency to bitter straw. Over time, the overall impression is always sweeter. The alcohol could be better integrated. He stings a bit in the nose. Overall, a decent overall impression.
Basic flavors: malt, cereals, seasoning, oak, nut, fruits
Description: Clear and surprisingly spicy, the drop hits the tip of the tongue. A malt and grain taste rinses through the mouth and immediately there is a pinch of pepper on the tongue. For a moment, straw also reappears in the taste, before the oak takes over and seamlessly heralds the finish. While the spice causes a warming sensation in the epigastrium, almond flavors develop. Bitter almond oil meets a tart woody taste. Almost a bit fermented-sour. At the back of a few bright fruits swing, but they are already quite neatly superimposed. The intensity and mouthfeel fit.
Basic flavors: malt, nut, fruit, acid, oak
Description: The finish is medium to long and somehow quite special. Rarely have I had such a bitter, bitter and fermented-sour finish. You have to like that. Malt, bitter almond oil and fermented fruit acid along with the oak sound surprisingly long after. The aftertaste feels like a coating on the tongue.
