4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy copper amber color, minimal but long lasting beige head. Aroma honey, biscuit, flower, malt, with citrus and grapefruit in the flavor, also yeasty. Taste medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, moderated medicine bitter finish, refreshing. It’s like a good IPA, I hardly believe it’s a bock. So far the best in the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle. Deep gold colored with a slight haze. Mid-sized blond top. Yellow fruits and flowers and grassy hops to the nose. Faint toasted malts. Medium full, fairly dry in the mouth. Soft toasted malt flavor some residual sugars. Fruity flavors as well. Clean bitterness all the way throughout. A nice take on a Heller Bock.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Haand Festival. As Spring Bock. It’s almost clear, golden-orange in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma has peaches, a generic fruityness, tropical fruits and sweetness. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with sweetness to bring some balance, as well as both tropical fruits and fruits from less hot places. Full body, dryish with a nice carbonation. Bitter finish. A pleasant and tasteful bock, a bit sweet though, but with a nice although untraditional fruityness. 130525
