Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle 777. I had contemplated keeping this for some reason but thought that this was only a number. Hopefully fortuitous, but no really big deal. The nose is crisp with the dry hopping of the said amarillo, simcoe, chinook and cascade. The appearance in the glass is cloudy with a patina of creaminess in the head. There is a certain unfermented graininess in the taste and the mouthfeel is slightly thin notwithstanding the ABV. A good beer but it does not present to me that it is a weizenbock given the absence of fruity esters that should define this beer.

Holmen1 (2376) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13, etter det offisielle programmet ("fra gribbebordet": fikk bare en liten rest, så den var ganske grumset. Noterte karamellsødme i lange baner, med noe humle mot slutten. Mer som en søt eisbock enn en hvetebock, men det spiller forsåvidt ingen rolle. Vil gjerne prøve den på nytt i mer objektiv tilstand.

Mørk gyllen farve med med mye lys beige skum. Lukt av god hvetemalt og karamell. Smak av malt, karamell og frukt. Cardinal.

Backlog! On tap @ BBF1 (30 Oct. 2009). Brown, murky color. Aroma’s: citrus, refreshing, some roast & resin retronasal. Flavor is lightly medium bitter with some acidity from the hops. Medium bodied. finishes very bitter. Very nice, but hardly a bock.

In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with dark fruits, with light soy notes, floral hops, light funk, very nice, alcohol warmth.

# 3112 ersma: gebraut von mikkel und dem brauer von de molen, menno. kan ja eigentlich nur was gutes bei rauskommen. vom dezember 2009. nur 992 flaschen, meine hat die nummer 618. hell kupferfarben, leicht trübe. oben viel stabiler schaum. der geruch ist kräuterig-säuerlich mit frucht. dazu etwas hefe. der antrunk ist fruchtig-kräuterig mit gapefruit, beeren und auch hier etwas hefe. chinook, simcoe, cascade und amarillo, also die typische nachhopf-mischung für ein fruchtiges geschmackserlebnis. zur mitte wird es bitterer, aber nicht so sehr, wie es die 53 ibu erwarten ließen. aber das hat man bei den stark nachgehopften bieren ja oft. der abgang ist etwas süßlicher und eher verhalten. abnehmende fruchtigkeit, eher so beeren und apfel. die flasche ist ansprechend gestaltet, grad das vordergründig sehr schlichte hat stil. fazit: nicht unbedingt ein typischer weizenbock, was an den fruchtigen noten liegt. aber überzeugend, wenn auch zum ende etwas schwächelnd. probierenswert. 13,12,11,9,13,11 - 11,15 - 7/8/

Cloudy chocolate coloured beer, with a biscuit coloured frothy head. Soft frothy palate. Tangy minerally hops surrounded by soft frothy malt. Not really sure about this style but the hops shine and it’s very drinkable.
