COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock is brewed in the spirit of a German Maibock, albeit one of the type that was brewed centuries ago in the city of Einbeck and that was noted for its generous use of malted wheat. Four Sisters Spring Bock sports a deep copper-gold color and enjoys a sweet floral nose from aroma additions of Sterling hops. In the mouth, a rich malty character will introduce itself before quickly giving way to an extremely smooth, dry finish in which a hint of honeyed-malt flavor and estery alcohol character lingers.

7% as part of a tasting set at Dig Bar. A light copper color with a thick filmy head that clings to the glass. A fruity grainy malt aroma. Very smooth full bodied beer. The taste is creamy graham & biscuit, lots of malt character. Pretty good stuff.

there’s nothing particularly standout about this but it all ties together really well. malty and golden

630ml bottle. Pours with a big head of small compact bubbles. Golden amber colour and very clear. Grassy malt aroma with a clean fresh mouthfeel that leaves a soapy aftertaste.

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - APR 21, 2012
Malty sweet brew. Lots of cereal, cookie dough, grain. A bit too rich for me and not as balanced as I would like.Good solid body. Decent.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2009
Tap at the Naka-Meguro Taproom. Clear amber with thick foamy head. Nose hit me from accross the room, sweet, floral hops and faint spices. Quite sweet, with some tart fruit notes, not entirely soft on the palate. Couldnt quite seem to make sense as I rated this one, but I really enjoyed it. Perhaps not malted and marshmellowy enough, as I listened to others.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2009
Draught at Baird Naka-Meguro Taproom. Clear deep golden. Sweet and honeyish with clean, hard bold mouthfeel. Fruity with flavour of grains, honey and, well... that’s all. Finishes with low bitterness. Lacks the central part of a bock: malt softness and depth. This is just a strong, bold end edgy lager.

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2011 Bottle. Made with wheat malt, unmalted barley and sugar. Reasonably malty, sweet, fruit, honey and caramel aroma, though fainter than expected. Deep amber color with a tall white head. Rich, sweet malt flavor, grains, biscuits, caramel, honey, fruit. Bitter finish of hops and alcohol. Rather hoppy, and enjoyable, with nice malt character.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 3, 2008
Clear golden with an impressive head. Sweet lightly toasted malts, pine, and some fruity citrus. The flavor is much more impressive than the aroma. Strong bitterness, malty, sorta fruity, and pine. Dry, carbonated body. Nice, full of malty charecter with maybe a little too many hops.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 5, 2007
Light golden amber color. Apricots, peaches and piney nose. Full body with peaches, oranges and pineapples. Hoppy for the style. Finihes like a malty fruit cup with some lingering hop bitterness.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Spicy fruitiness and a long herbal hop finish meld for a quenching, well-built glass of Heller Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the orangey golden.
-Carbonation is rather low, and combined with the lean body makes big gulps very satisfying.
-The maltiness supports the spicy hop flavors while adding a honeyed touch of its own.
-This is another Baird beer which doesn’t taste very strong alcohol wise. Makes for some pleasant sessioning!

Bottle; thx Tim!
