De gisting van ons Bockbier vindt plaats bij hoge temperaturen, deze traditionele gistingsmethode wordt daarom hoge- of bovengisting genoemd. Het levert een uitgesproken koppig bier op met een volle, romige smaak, waarin een vleugje karamel valt te ontdekken. Een bitterzoet herfstbier dat door velen zeer gewaardeerd wordt.

On tap in the Netherlands. The bar owner had stored a keg for two years and just tapped it. It poured a very golden colour but had very little aroma. The taste was very pleasant with a very nice aftertaste. I have never tasted a freah brew so it is hard to say if cellering was a positive or negative exercise.

Dit bier heeft een kastanjebruine kleur. De smaak is lichtzoet, met wat gebrande mout. Karamel en rozijnen. In balans. Prima bokbier.

From tap in Groede, Zeeland. Dark ruby brown ale, with beige head. Iron / rusty foam noticeable in the nose. Aroma of caramel & raisins, hints of chocolate / burnt malts. Rather sweet, clean palate.

The beer looks like a proper bock beer. The color is a nice dark ruby red, wen seen in the light. In the dark it is almost black. The beer pours layer of almond colored foam. The smell is sweet. There is cherries and red fruit. I also smell some sweet alcohol. There is some almond aswell. Nice and autumny, but not the best smell ever. The taste is nice aswell. I taste almond, licorice, and red fruit. Pretty much the same as the smell, with additional licorice. The taste is nice, but there are better bock beers. Not bad though.

300 ml. bottle. 2015 Vintage. BBF 04/2017. Deep red brown, little tanned head on the sides. Nose is weirdly unpleasant moldy herbs syrup, rotting dark fruits & cleaning agents,… Taste is a bit better weird heavy fish guts notes mixed with syrup, caramel, herbal, syrup, root beer, red fruits, herbal caramel,… Lots of weird notes. I expected this to be either boring or unpleasant not freaking bizarre. Thinned, varnish syrup. Weird, partially enjoyable even if only for the strangeness of it all.

[9/28/15] Bottle on a bench at Dam square in Amsterdam. Drank straight from the bottle. Aroma of malt, caramel, dark fruit and a bit of toast. Sweet caramelly flavor, sugary, with some dark fruits, licorice, light toastiness, and a bitterish finish with some alcohol. Kinda sticky mouthfeel.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 Prima Bockbier, drinkt lekker weg. Beter dan de meeste van zijn soort, maar kan toch niet tippen aan die van La Trappe.

30cl bottle at home. Pours a brown reddish colour with a decent foamy head that leaves lacing. Aroma’s of malt, syrup and caramel. Taste is pretty sweet with notes of brown sugar, caramel and dried fruits. A bit watery with average to low carbonation.
