Copper hazy, white head. Smell of hay, caramel, dark fruits and dark malts. Moderate to medium sweet, super fruity of malts, some dark malts and fruity hops, even some citrus. Medium bitter finish. Awsome bock!

Thanks bierkoning! Hazy amber color, good beige head. Citrus, fruits, pineapple in the hoppy nose. Also hints of yeast. Medium-bodied. Tropical fruity and grapefruity hoppy flavor. Traditionally Dutch bocks are ales but this is a lager which tastes like an ale. Certainly new generation, American style "doublebock", lots of citrusy-fruity hops in this one.

androman (294) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
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.

DwarfeD (806) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
33cl bottle at home from BierNavigatie. Pale dark orange with a small white soapy head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Bitter with some sweet tones and a very bitter aftertaste. Hops, grapefruit, citrus and herbs. A decent IPA’ish bock.

33cl bottle Appearance: Orange with a small head (1 finger), ok retention, no lacing Aroma: Flowers,grass, caramelised malts Taste: Floral hops, light grapefruit ,grass and light toasted and caramelised malts. soft carbontion, medium bod. Not your typical Heller bock. Actually Heller bock meets IPA. And I like that.

OleR (4752) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2014
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.

Pours a hazy dark golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, sweet caramel, citrus, hops. Flavour is medium sweet with some hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Really nice IPA.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
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
