4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy burnt orange. Thin, compact off white head. Light but steady carbonation. Faint aroma of sour apples, caramel and toasty malts. Initially tart and vaguely sour with a tiny edge of sweetness. Rock candy-esque. Crisp, smooth and fairly clean. Tart, fruity Weizenbock qualities but cleaner and with more of a lagered body. Medium thin body. Mild hop bitterness and flavor. Tartness is intriguing and very refreshing. Finishes creamier, tart and slick. Strange...but beautiful.

this really isnt that special to me. Grainy, somewhat sweet, tart ripe fruits, hints of caramel, cream and apples. Dense creamy off white top to a vibrant amber body. Soft, ceramy mouthfeel exits dry with some stickyness. Sweet caramel and rather bland. some woody notes and dry grains reamain.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours a nice medium golden color, that looks good for a lager with decent head. Taste is fairly large and ceral in taste, reminds me a bit of a biere de garde, but not so farmhouse in aroma. Mild hops, Tasty and quite drinkable would make a good session brew.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with minimal head and good lacings. Interesting flavors. Sweet malts with a slightly bitter hop profile. A bit of sweet and sour going on here. A refreshing brew that was quite enjoyable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a unique beer to me. The color is a burnt-orange/copper and very cloudy, making it look mysterious. Both the smell and the taste have strong apple characteristics almost like a cider but with hints of hops. The carbonation is moderate. It leaves a pleasant aftertaste. I was expecting more of a bock taste from the name/type (Geist Bock?) but it's not much like a bock at all, IMO.
Overall, a good beer and a nice change. While I dislike flavored beers, the hints of apple are actually suprisingly good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Off gold, verging on orange;small whit head, little bit o' lace. Caramel, marshmellow,, slight hop in the nose. Nice caramel and vanilla malt flavor with a slight woody/oxidized finish, slight though. Toffee, tang and background bittering in the finish. Good, but I still prefer the Saxer bock for best Oregon pale bock.
