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.

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 doesnít or smell like a bock ought to. Fairly sour with lots of cherry. These flavors are not awful but donít really belong in this style. This beer is a mess., but the sour flavor and fruit provide some redemption.

355ml bottle pours dark amber in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is bready malts and caramel with mild hops. Taste is big malty sweetness with a little hop bitterness in the finish. Lacking a little in the balance of flavors, but still a drinkable brew, just not as good as it could be.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a copper/red with great clarity and a white head. Nice and malty start, but the hops were too much for my taste, long trailing bitter finish with a slight green hop taste in the finish. To much bitterness in my opinion.

This was not terrible, but not great either. This one goes from salty to sweet to sour, and never really seems to quite get it together in the mouthfeel. Lots of alcohol and semi sour fruits are present in the aroma, which leads into this malty and overly hopped for the style.

Pours a five finger off-white head that fades to a ring leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Apple/malty nose. Starts sweet, apple cider flavor, some burnt apple at finish. Very smooth, easy to drink. $1.40 for a 12oz bottle from Liquid Solutions Tigard, Or.

Bottle Malty aroma with citrus tones. Poured pale brown with white head. Malty flavour, with an unpleasant big swath of molasses in the middle of it. Bready finish, with more molasses. I admit Iím not familiar with the Heiliges Geist bock style, but I would not seek this out. It could be I just donít like the style.

"A true lager" according to the label. Well the aroma on this is quite exquisite if you are a fan of nicelly done malts..nice stuff. The beer also has good looks, chesnut brown with a small off white head..nice lacing. again i liked the taste of the malts very full and not to sweet..creamy at the front of the tongue than it gets dry at the end..I like this..aids consumption!! Overall a nice lager beer indeed ..not sure if its a real bock..it tastedike some Kellerbiers I have had..but worth a try.Tasty session type brew.

From a 12 oz. bottle--a distinctive burnt sienna/copper colored lager with an outstanding malt taste and pleasing hop undertones. Though it is debatable whether this bock is a "true lager" as noted by the brewery, the hint of apple in this beer is far from overbearing. This bock finishes quite smooth though a little dull.

Alphadelic (1974) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Super hazy peachy orange colored beer with a good white head. The nose is mild and sweet while in the mouth it is very flavorsome. Smooth, doughy and grassy flavors coming from a seamless mingling of hip and barley. Hints of light orange and mango. Not much of a finish to it.
