3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Hazy, murky golden to amber colour with a big and almost blond foamy head. Mildly bready malty and slightly spelty aroma with fruity notes of citrus and hints of clove and yeast. Mildly sweet and sour-tart flavour, medium to light bodied with a prickly carbonation. Yeast-spicy, (cara-)malty and distinctively spelt-malty character with notes of citric and sour orange; dry, slightly sweet and mildly sour-tart finish with spelty notes and citrus. Refreshing with a deceptive alcoholic strength. 27.V.15

Diese Bock beginnt knackig und würzig, wird dann immer muffiger und schließt getreidig sowie ranzig ab. Geht so.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Dilo in Bochum. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a smooth body and small head. Aroma of bread and wheat. Taste of dark bread, high alcohol, cloves, flowers, malt. Dull and strange finish. Couldn’t finish it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: "Dirty" deep golden, big loose and stable off-white head; moderate to solid fruity-wheaty nose with delicate traces of herbal hops and a cellary touch; moderate sweet sweet-sourish flavour, accompanied by a certain bitterness, medium bodied; spicy hoppy and fruity finish, some citrussy traces detectable, some alcohol as well. Really good…

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malty-sweetish beginning. A bit sharp, dry-dusty malt, sweetish banana. Hints of clove, bitter dusty in the aftertaste. For me a bit too sharp bitter in the aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Somewhat hazy amber brown color, Big, long-lasting beige head, swirls of lace. Inviting aroma of sweet malt and light spice. Taste is good, light-bodied caramel malt that moves smoothly to a carbonated swallow, adding light spice and toffee before yielding slightly to light hops in a short finish. Very good bock beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL bottle. Nose is very sweet and floral, very ’spelty’ as you in the know may know, pours with a bit of a mini-gush, but slowly, a hazy orange-copper with a tight, dense foamy beige head. Taste sweet with low bitterness, very grainy and floral, lots of strong spelt character, very pleasant here. Hops are minimal, some organic hay and earth in the toasted caramel-type malt, clean medium-full body, bright with a little citrus and fainter wood. Very natural, very pastoral, and something I’d often hope to find in the health food aisles of German co-ops.
