Very pale and not so tasty bock beer. It drinks like water. Of the big dutch brabds this must be one of the worst.

Typical Dutch seasonal bock. Not bad at all but also nothing out of the ordinary. Not too sweet with flavors of burned malts caramel some spices and mild bitterness in the finish. nice.

Smells like regular alfa beer, but a bit stronger. Colour is red, which I like. The taste is okay: you can notice it’s an alfa, only a bit heavier with darker hops.

Bosbouw (1301) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Roodbruine kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruit, caramel, iets zoetig. Smaakt fris zoet, caramel en iets kruiden. Prima doorsnee bok.

Lekker zoet bockbier met de kenmerkende Alfa smaak. Mooie rode kleur en een heerlijke zoete geur. In het begin moest ik erg wennen aan Alfa bieren maar nu vind ik ze erg lekker.

Mooi donkerrood bier met een creme-kleurige schuimkraag. Geur van mout en gist, zoet smaak met een hint van gebrande mout. Voldoende koolzuur aanwezig. De nasmaak is licht bitter. Qua diepte valt hij tegen, wat vlak van smaak zonder een echte body. Geen blijvertje.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
Autumn bock of bottom fermentation, like the German version of the genre. Light beige, refined, creamy and stable foam on a clear copper, almost amber beer with a brownish hue, clearly paler than the top-fermented Dutch boks and in that respect again more akin to a German bottom-femented one (the brewery’s proximity to Germany has resulted in a German influence in some of their other beers, too). Nose gets caramel and nuts from malt, perhaps a hint of wheat, honey, orange peel, straw, liquorice, and some kind of vague, suggested woodiness. Tastes smoothly malty, some nuttiness, some caramel, lightly sweet but nowhere cloying, in the end drying up with a very subtle hop bitterness (as is custom in this style) and just a whiff of warming alcohol. Nothing too complex but nevertheless a more than decent bokbier, and I do like the fact that it is made in the German tradition, something rarely seen in Dutch boks.

androman (441) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2013
30cl bottle @ home. Clear reddish brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma malty, caramel, fruity notes, bit watery. Taste medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, alcohol is not fully hidden. Fizzy carbon, medium body, short sweetish-bitter finish. Average bock beer.

Was a bit disappointed about this one. I adore their pilsner, and their Lentebok was not bad at all, but this bok is below their standard. It tasted to much like their pilsner, only a tad sweeter.

Robijnrood met witte kraag Aroma: caramout, ambermout, rozijnen, caramel Smaken: caramel, redelijk kandijsuiker zoet, matig bitter, donker fruitig, rozijn, iets metalig, droog, alcohol is te proeven. Redelijke body, laag co2, glad in de mond,
