Nice clear golden color with a thick creamy 3 cm white head. Smell a little citrus, little bread, little sweetness and grains. Taste is weird, much sweeter then I expected. Taste lingers for quite a while. Carbo is average. Medium body.

Bottle in Amsterdam.
Sweet, fruity, flowers and grain. Breakfast cereals.
Too sweet, with more hops, this would be a lovely bock. Grainy finish.

Bottlle.Medium gold with vanishing lace. Fake, sugary aroma. sweet, syrupy, with sugary malt, strong booze, no hops. Gross, really. What are they thinking? Pancake syrup?

300 ml bottle. From Valkenswaard, the Netherlands. Deep golden colour with small white head. Sweet caramel and some dark fruits in aroma. Slightly roasted malty flavour with quite artificial sugary and caramel sweetness. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
fresh smelling beer, palate tended to be a bit greasy, and the alcohol was evident, not grose by all means, just not that pleasant in flavour, need to have it fresh in the Netherlands i think, i think it was a bit old by the time it got to Oz.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2005 Aroma of malts with a hint of apple and some skunky hops. Dark golden color, white head, few lace. Very sweet start, malty, metallic bitter, apple and sugar sticky. More like a European Strong Lager instead of a Bock.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draught@Tuulensuu, Tampere) Clear golden color with a very small head. Sweetish-malty, slightly honeyish aroma. Grainy-malty, sweetish but also somewhat dry (hops?) flavor with honey hints. Medium-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. A quite clean, but as uninspiring bock.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear yellow/orange color, small but lasting head. Aroma of hops. Extremely sweet, which was pretty good in the herfstbok, but pretty please not in this lentebok! It's more of a pilsener, with a lot of honey/toffee sweetness. Not good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Very sweet initial taste and strong. Was very good with a citrus-flavor. A smooth finish and a hint of caramel. Really enjoyed it but may have drank it too cold.
