2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of joergen. Pours a cloudy golden with a tall, lively, white head with good retention. Lightly sour, citrusy nose. Medium body with lightly sweet and flowery notes. Sourish finish. Very atypical for a German - and for a Heller Bock, if that’s really what it is. 290607

Bottle. Large fizzy white and lasting head with a good display of lacework. Light cloudy body with an orange color. Aroma of grain, caramel, citrus, fruit and yeast. Medium bodied with a fizzy carbonation. Light to moderated sweet malty notes with light acidic. Quit nice Heller Bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Huge, very dense & fine yellowish head; orange beer, very well & densely carbonation. Bit of caramel, caramel malts, generally sweetish. CO² definitely in the nose; fresh greenery aroma. Sweet-sourish beer. Whatever its name, blind I’d guessed some kind of Weizen, if less clovey than usual. Quite citrussy however, fruity-yeasty. Retronasal some vegetable, or fruit prepared as vegetable, like green papaya. Traces of diacetyl? pasta cookingwater. Fizzy, tingling MF, overcarbonated IMO, making it seem lighter than it is. I might rate this very highly on a sunny terrace, a mug of draught in hand. In a severe judging condition, before the computer, it appears thin & timid. Thanks to DerDoppelbock

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2006 Draft at the brewpub: poured slightly cloudy butterscotch yellow with a dash of orange. Big foamy off white head that doesn’t last. Aroma is quite nice. Fresh like a European spring day with hints of green apples and vanilla pudding with caramel. Moderate alcohol bite towards the end with a light sweetness. I thought this was a very good beer. Very fresh.
