3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Tuulensuu, Tampere. Reddish brown color. Sweet bready malt aroma. Bready malt flavor with nuts, warming fruity alcohol, licorice, raisins, chocolate and caramel. Tastes initially sweet but alcohol dryes the finish. Alcohol character is fairly strong but still mellow and typical for bocks. One of the better Budels beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu as "Budels Herfstbock"
Aroma is sweet with brown sugar - feels like belgian strong. Flavour is sweet with syrup, brown sugar, honey and some spices. Malty finish with some alcohol, sugary aftertaste. Rather sweet bock, but sugar-sweet and not malt-sweet like bocks usually are. A ’belgian bock’, I’d say.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained not much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear ruby color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch. This beer smells light caramally.
