This is a lager, not an ale, despite the use of Belgian yeast, but whatever. Itís a very refreshing, clean, and crisp beer with slight spice notes.

My second beer at the breweries ESB location on 18th Jan 2013. Looked like a lager/pilsner: tasted like a lager/pilsner. Bright, clean and clear body of golden liquid, on top a thin snow white head. No smell worthy of mention: gets an average score like most lagers. Dry more than sweet, grainy more than hoppy. Nothing wrong with it: but could have been any number of lagers/pilsners from anywhere in the world.

gyllenbock (4400) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2012
On tap at Heartland Brewery and Chophouse - 43rd St, August 2012. Hazy orange with a small head. Aroma and taste of yeast, spices, malt and some light fruit. Rather sweet but drinkable.

Draught sample. Pours gold with a white head. Smells floral and earthy. Tastes earthy with a caramelly. Didnít detect anything Belgian here.

MiP (13478) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Lagery aroma, a bit of chalk. Clear light amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off tart, turning more malty and slightly aniseedy in the finish.

ben4321 (3765) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
Location: On tap at the Brewery - Union Square, 3/23/10

Aroma: Nose is Belgian yeast and spice with some underlying notes of corn and caramel malts
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange color
Flavor: The familiar Belgian yeast flavors dominate the sweet corn/malty flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium with an overly fizzy mouthfeel that detracts from the beer
Overall Impression: This one is definitely better then the normal Cornhusker lager, but it still isnít so great. The spice and flavors from the Belgian yeast are definitely an improvement on the recipe, but the over-carbonation is still an issue, and the beer itself still isnít really that great.

Pint on tap at 51st. Hearty golden appearance, a little hazy, minimal head and moderate lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet like a gumdrop with a little floral hoppiness to balance it out. Taste is sweet as expected with a little sourness and bitterness noted as well. Palate is great with high carbonation present and a moderate to full body. Nice crisp aftertaste and overall a good belgian ale. Really a lot more complex flavor than most other Heartland brews.

Grabbed at lunch on beautiful March day. you can tastes the hints of corn and yeast. Its got good carbonation however, I feel a little heavy handed on the nutmeg.

Draft. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Floral yeasty aroma with some spicy notes and a light sweetness. Being a pretty bland base beer, this ends up showcasing the yeast really well. Spicy and floral with a light malty sweetness. Enjoyable, easy to drink, and very sessionable.
