Wieselburger Stammbräu

Another Austrian beer from the batch that got dropped, Wieselburger Stammbräu from Wieselburger Brauerei has a sweet, fruity (cherry?) nose with a resinous backdrop. The flavour is equally sweet, with an artificial fruit undertone and a slightly floral, pine-like character. With a slightly oily mouthfeel, a pleasant spiciness runs through the finish.

This was bang on the best before date, so it might be better fresher. It was one of those beers that has elements I like (the spiciness was nice), but it has more elements I don't, so on balance I'd just have to try it again.
