Net als de pils is de Heineken tarwebok geen best bier. Te zoet snoepjesbier, kunstmatige zoete caramelsmaak, qua aroma hetzelfde verhaal. Tuurlijk, herfstachtig weer en een gezellige warme bruine kroeg, dan gaat ie best wel naar binnen, deze tarwebok. Maar de kwaliteit is ver te zoeken.

Zoet bockbier. Niet zo zoet als Grolsch. Erg dunne zoete smaak. Schuimkraag zakt snel in. Is van de tap iets lekkerder of beeldt ik me dat maar in ?

Cunningham (7055) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Deep dark ruby color with a fine tan head. Good lacing. Nutty, toffee, mild roasty and some dried fruits in the aroma. Medium + body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average to soft carbonation. A bit oily texture. Toffee, nutty, some roasted notes, caramel and fruity flavor. Decent nice dutch bock.
[Bottle from a local grocery store in Utrecht, Netherland]

Bottle. Pours a clear, copper color with a very thin head. Brown sugar aroma with a thick, malty presence. Very malty flavor with some caramel and brown sugar notes. Not terrible, but a typical Heineken brew.

Pretty good beer. Head not very strong, creamy. Aroma: sweet and gentle coffee. The flavor is "thick", slightly bitter, caramel and a little coffee. Drink a light and pleasant.

Ah the super sweet taste of syrupy mash. Sparsedroopy fingers of lace drool back into rhe deep maple syup amber of the beer. Nose of dark sugar. Up front spice covered in syrupy malts that eventually subdue it. Short overall body. Finish is abrubt.
