3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured clear, with a copper color and an off-white, creamy head. Bread, cellar, hints of herbs in the nose. Aroma is fruity, malty, that becomes a honey sweet taste. Not much aftertaste. Simple, but good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange color with a white head. Smells sweet, honey and bananas. Taste is very malty, bread, maybe even sawdust, but after that come banana and some citrus. Very firm taste, especially the first few sips. Great beer and pretty unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a big tulip. ABV 6.5%
Hazy dark orange golden colour on the body, with a tall white head on top, with good density. Good retention too, leaves light lacing around the glass.
Nice aroma, malts, leather, light smoked, burned wood at first, then buttery and toffee like.
Taste of grains, hops, malt. Again light buttery and sweet, but with a nice and hoppy bitterness on the aftertaste. At the very end touches of smoke and alcohol, I am under the impression that on the finish tastes a bit bourbon-like or am that tired?
Mediium body, good carbonation with a bite.
Overall very good, very different than any other heller bock I’ve had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at De Paas, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy orange amber with a thin white head. The aroma is acidic citrus fruit leading to a medium sour flavour with some yeast acidity on the surprisingly smooth palate.
