FROTHINGSLOSH (5658) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Sampled on draft at Old New York this beer poured a bright golden color with a large fluffy white head that lingered and left exceptional lacing. The aroma was tangy, sweet and malty with a yeasty presence, golden fruits and perfume. The flavor was tangy sugar, was very sweet and had notes of candied golden fruits, yeast and a hint of perfume. Long finish with lingering yeast and golden fruits. Moderately full bodied. Excellent!

laiti (7700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Draught @ Viisi Penniä. Aroma has sweet malty tones and honey. Also some grass. Fizzy palate. Flavour has sweet honey, some malt, menthol, minerals and grass. Not as sweet as most maibocks but still too sweet for me.

TBone (14611) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
Tap at Konttori, Tampere. Deep golden color, small white head. Sweetish fruity and flowery aroma. Hints of honey and pear. Medium-bodied. Crisp. Fruity bitter, pear, apple flavor with light fruity hoppyness. Too sweet for me. Summer maibock!

kustie (476) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 23, 2015
Tap@gastropub praha. Golden color with a dense white head. Aroma has some citrus, hops and malt. Taste is bitter with long somewhat sweet and very malty finish. Flavors of malt, citrus, grass and some spiciness. Soft but some how full mouth feeling.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2015
Draught @ Konttori, Tampere. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet maltiness, bread and grassy bitterness. Flavour of extremely smooth maltiness, grassy bitterness, some cream, herbs and mild citrusy notes. Alcohol warms a bit. Brilliant. One of the best heller bocks out there.

olio (8059) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 15, 2015
Tap (7%) @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized head. Grainy and a bit sweet malty aroma, some hay and mild toffee notes too. Sweetish toffee on flavor too, grainy notes, some pale malts and subtle dried fruits. Slick palate with a bitter bite at the end. Lingering sweet aftertaste with subtle warming alcohol. Gets even sweeter towards the end. A very nice and clean Heller Bock.

At Rockwells. I really enjoy these guy’s stuff. Excellent examples of every style. Malty and a little sweet with out being overly so. Serving: Tap

wavers1 (915) - Notown, California, USA - OCT 11, 2014
On tap at TAPS, a real treat to try this and the oktoberfest side by side. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw to light orange with a good dense head. Gotta give the edge to the marzen, this one has slightly more residual sweetness and is slightly less balanced. Both are very good but the marzen is amazing.

574deadzone (1253) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft at Central City. Pours a clear straw golden with a thick, fluffy eggshell head that hangs out a while and leaves a thick, foamy wall of lace. Nose involves sweet malt, citrus notes, some spice, and some stone fruit. Pretty sweet, somewhat bitter. Medium bodied, slick, softer carb, with a drying toward tart finish. Really awesome as expected, nice and drinkable, but with the appropriate malt heft of the style. The dash of tartness with the citrus and stone fruit aromatics makes for a nice twist.

maxwelldeux (4182) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a moderate white head on there. Nose has some corn and grains, but not much else to it for me. Feels a bit heavy, with a muddled grainy taste that doesn’t make for a drinkable beer. Meh.
