Trev (1936) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Bottle: Pour is hazy orange gold with a thick off white head that fades to a lasting cap. aroma is yeasty, grassy, pilsner maltiness with hints of banana like wheat tones, light mandarin orange as well. Flavour carries notes of candied orange, grassy hop. biscuity maltiness. Very drinkable overall, not too sweet. Fantastic twist on the style.

crossovert (7443) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2012
500ml bottle. It pours a slightly hazed gold with a thick, frothy white head that recedes to some nice lacing. The smell is pleasant. It is very much hinged on a honey meadlike scent that melts with some caramally malt. Te hops lend a big orangey citrus scent. This beer isn’t optimally fresh but still smells pleasant. Like an orange blossom honey cake. The flavor is really nice. Not like most heller bocks. This one isn’t as sweet and the flavor and body both feel lighter and crisper than the typical helles bock. It has a nice honeylike flavor with a big malty punch, but the hops are still noticeable with some grassy bite, a mild bitterness, and some orange. Overall not a bad one, it probably would be fantastic fresh.

Bottle. It pours light orange with a nice creamy white head. The aroma is very bready with hot, sweet wort and hints of citrus lime and earthy tea leaves. Interesting. The flavor is kind of the same with strong hop flavors of lime, florals and bread. Very full bodied and creamy texture. Nice one.

inbirraveritas (1242) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 19, 2011
Lively carbonated, opalescent orange golden coloured brew with a medium sized, off-white head on its top. Fresh, fruity, hoppy nose and aroma lead by tart citrus fruits, which are escorted by honey, bread, florals and herbs, mouthfeel’s oily and medium sharp. It finishes long and sweetbitter with alcohol, herbals and citrusses. Tasty and full bodied one.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 5, 2011
0,5l bottle from Sörspecialista, Budapest. Cloudy golden color with medium white head. Hay, floral, resin, spruce aroma because of the Saphir hop. Medium bitter taste. Medium body with creamy, oily, sticky texture and lively carbonation. Long Saphir hoppy bitter finish. It’s a very delicious beer. It’s a good chence to experience the character of Saphir.

Opalescent pale golden beer with a medium white-off white head. Fresh hops in the nose with a fine malty background, some almond, bready and biscuity yeast. Starts with a honeyish malt, some bready background, yeast and the powerful herbal hops. Fine bock, nice!
