In the early days this was the last beer to be brewed before the warm summer season. It had an increased alcohol percentage so it would last longer.

Bottle - Clear copper colour, small white head with fair retention. Sweet malty and fruity aromas with lot of apple and pear aroma, some bread, hints of honey and bubble gum. Taste is sweet with apple and clove, some honey and candy, low herbal hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, smooth texture, a bit boozy finish. Good bock, but its too sweet for me.

Drank with Rik at my place 18-11-2015 (the beer was left from this spring). Fine beer for this kind of thing.

TtV (326) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2015
Bottle 30cl. Golden colour with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma has malts and not much more. Taste is a mix of a strange sweetness with bitterness in the background. Tastes somewhat chemical.

Gangstergafje (416) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
Simpel appearance. Golden color with white foam head. The foam is rough and dissapears quickly. The smell is pilsner with more sweetness and some fruit. The same for the taste. Simple taste, with more complex features. It has some sweetness and fruitiness. Not bad but quite simple.

Icedwarf (1003) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2015
Helder geel bier met schuim. Snaak is licht bitter en licht zoet met sporen van fruit, koriander en vanille. Valt wat tegen t.o.v. de ander Hertog Jan bieren.

oh6gdx (23913) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Bottled. Orangeish amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is mild spices, some sweet malts, mild metallic notes as well as some slight alcohol and mild strange sweetish notes. Flavour is rather similar with a mild herbal and floral touch to it. Yet it somehow tastes a bit unclean for what it is.

- Alcoholpercentage van 7,2% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
