This is one of our rare lagers brewed in the style of the German Heiliges Geist Bock, or Holy Ghost Bock. The nane refers to the lighter nature of the beer as opposed to the darker and heavier Dopple Bock and Mai Bock also brewed during the spring in Germany. There is a rich malt flavor, a firm German style lager head, and a clean lagered finish to this beer.

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2007
LIght aroma of darker malt. Barely detectable hop. Amber color with an off-white head that is almost respectable. Low carbonation. Starts with sweet malt, though not dark, and there seems to be a bit of lemon. There is not much bitter, so it’s more about malt. The beer sort of drops off. The malt and flavor go away. The mouth is left with some sour/citrus, some herb/veg, but no real bitterness. It is what it is.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Amberish, slight haze, a little fiery and dark, thin sudsy off-white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Sweet mealy nose, slight breadiness, a bit of unripened melon.   Really mealy on the tongue.   Some biscuit and breadiness, pale fruitiness.   Seems a little heavy in its sweetness, but not really in body.   As it warms I get some alcohol coming out.   Somewhat sticky.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit its a bit sugary and clingy.   Its okay, but seems a little unrefined.   Not all that smooth, and certainly wouldnt reach for another after finishing this 22oz.   A little too sweet in my opinion.

Suttree (6106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 25, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2004 Brownish Gold, no head. Fruity, malty aroma - apples, maybe? Nicely effervescent. Sweet, bready - like muffins. Some berry flavors, as well. Slightly salty, spicy finish. Very rich and nicely balanced. Thanks, Secret Santa!

Argo0 was kind enough to give me a sample of this beer, and I thought slightly better of it than he did. Strong alcohol aroma. A light orange, cloudy beer, and doesn’t or smell like a bock ought to. Fairly sour with lots of cherry. These flavors are not awful but don’t really belong in this style. This beer is a mess., but the sour flavor and fruit provide some redemption.
