A Zwickelbier is a German lager that is “un-lagered”. Meaning you ferment out the beer cold like a lager but then don’t cold condition (or lager it) for as long as a traditional lager. Hense the name Zwickelbier, as a Zwickel is what the Germans call the sample port on their fermenters. So when the beer is done fermenting you can start drinking it straight from the Zwickel. We used Hersbrucker hops, giving the beer some nice German Noble hop aromatic with a slight citrus/herbal/spice on the tongue.
