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.

It took some time to find someone who had this for sale but i found one,now i await patiently the correct temprature for sampling this brew.Ahhh,it's ready. Nice orange,red color,small white head that was short lived.Malty aroma mildly sweet and a small spice presence as well.Very nice flavor,sweet malt,spicey,lightly hopped,with a faint fruit presence,there is a very light alcohol hint to this brew but it seems to be fairly well hidden and just gives the slight hint of it's presence.The feel is very smooth with a malty,spicey,hop after taste that is quite pleasant.This is a great brew and highly drinkable in a large quantity IMO.I wish i had bought more then one,but i knowtheyhave alot more to sell so i know what my next order is going to contain.

Orange/brown with a small white head. Malty aroma with a fruity background. Flavor is mainly malty with some caramel and a fairly hoppy finish. Slight notes of apple as well.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 21, 2002
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.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 9, 2007
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.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2008
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.

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.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2003
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.
