Why are these beers always so sweet? The maltiness doesn’t help either. Bah.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bought a bottle at the supermarket. Has a nice white head, with high carbonation. The color is deep gold. The aroma is not very strong, I just smell some hints of coriander. Has a malty sweet taste, with a nice balance between the sweet and the bitterness of the hops. Also some hints of coriander in this taste. The finish is nicely sour. A decent Heller Bock, but the best one is still Gulpener for me.

Niet zo’n heel sterke geur. Smaak is niet echt sprekend maar wel lekker. Ziet er wel mooi uit

Golden, effervescent pour. Small white layer of bubbles. No lacing. Earthy malt aroma. Taste is big on banana. Surprising. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was the last beer of the evening and honestly I didn’t expect that much, but I got proofed wrong. Clear light amber / dark golden colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Nose of spicy hops. Taste of soap, mild coriander, roses, flowers, caramel and whiskey mash. So easy and nice to drink with so many floral and fresh hints, it is really quaffable and delicious. Best beer for me in quite a long time (three days or something) ;-)

Starts with a sweetish vanilla note in the nose. After this there are a few aromas in. Lots of vanilla, flowers and butter. Bit sweetish with some freshness. After a while there is an unusual bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice one for sure.
