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.

Bov (11866) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2016
from Erzbierschof - pours a dark orange beer with a little foam left; aroma of ripe fruits and caramel, notes of marzipan; solid carbonation and a fair malt backbone; some sweetness, light grainy and with a long caramelish and flowery finish - very good

GenkiGonzo (1033) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 15, 2014
Draught at Bungalow. Pale amber with small head and some lacing. Aroma has lots of malts and sweet fruit. Nice plum flavour, not too sweet, almost a sherry flavour. Very interesting beer with good flavours.

KyotoLefty (9124) - 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.

Tap at Takadanobaba. Aroma is pleasantly yeasty and lightly sweet. Berry fruitiness. Taste is good, sweetness again, but more maltiness. Decent.

Capa (2620) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - 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.

mkel07 (5098) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2012
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.
