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.

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.

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!
