COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hvedebock offers a soft body dominated by dark malt, spicy aroma, and fruity vinousity. Hvedebock is great for a cool summer evening on the terasse, or a evocative fall day at the fireplace. Enjoy it accompanying cheeses, oven braised game, or stews made of beef. Hvedebock is brewed from generous use of barley- and wheat malts. Hvedebock should be served at cellar temperature. Pour the beer in a huge glass and give it time to develop. Shake the last 10-15 ml. before pouring.

Palme (3459) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Naboen, Bergen shared with ClubGonzo. The Bock pours a near murky dark-brown body with a small beige bubbly sidesticking head. Aroma has sweet elements of dark malts, bread, some ashy notes, sweet marzipan and some hints of licorice. It’s average carbonated, has a mild oily mouthfeel and it’s medium to full-bodied. Sweet and bready flavors also, lots of dark malts, also some strange notes of cloves and wheat that just as well could have been in a weiz. It ends mildly dry with just a little alco sting in the aftertaste. Yeah, I’m not the biggest bock-boy, but this one was not bad at all.

ClubGonzo (4130) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle @ Naboen, Bergen, shared with Palme. Body is dark brown with a faint red hue, topped by a small, off-white head. Marzipan, almonds, syrup and hints of dark malts come to my nostrils as the beer (served too cold as usual in most Norwegian pubs, even those with a good beer selection...*sigh*...) warms up. Taste is similar; strong, sweet marzipan tones, dark malts and molasses is served with a full-bodied, wheat-fueled slick mouthfeel. Taste and aroma are somewhat similar to the Schneider Aventinus Eisbock; the famous (but stronger) wheat eisbock. Only lighter in intensity. Makes sense, really. :-P A pretty nice beer, all in all, and probably a great winter warmer - the autumn in Bergen hasn’t really flexed its muscles yet but this beer works just fine nevertheless.

RuneStumo (2210) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
13.08.2011. 0,5l Bottle. Dark brown colour with off-white head. Rich beer with lots of malty flavours. There are dark malts, caramel malts and malt sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Good strong beer with very nice balance between malt and alcohol. Malty, sweet and very smooth aftertaste. Very good beer!

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark brownish color with a small off white head. Aroma is quite malty, with nutty notes, sweet and caramel malts, along with some subtle spice, bannana and slight bitterness. The flavor is again more on the malty side, with lots of caramel malts, some breadiness, sweet malts, nutty notes and the subtle spice and banana. The body is light to medium with a slightly dry mouthfeel. Overall a solid brew, just not as good as some of the great Weizen Bocks, like Aventinus for instance.

mikkellund42 (562) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Bottle. Pours dark opaque brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is sweet plum, apples, toffee, chocolate and hints of licorice. Taste is initial sweet then medium bitter and sweet in excellent balance. Body is creamy and smooth with soft carbonation. Finish is oily and long with notes of fruit, caramel and coffee. Excellent beer!

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2011
Flaske: Mudret brun øl med et fint hvidt skumhoved. Duften er sødlig med en del bær og fornemmelsen af øl. Smagen er tydelig hvedepræget med en god del bær og frugt. Rigtig fin øl der bare ser mindre pæn ud.

20-MAY-2011, bottle @Marielyst sommerhus with Morten. Murky brown with huge beige head. Neutral and weak malty nose. Rye bread taste, very creamy. Sweet and sticky. Nice bock.

Koelschtrinker (10848) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2011
Angenehmer Malzantrunk mit eher nebensächlciher Hopfigkeit, die im aber im weiteren Verlauf zunimmt, ergänzt durch eine leichte Fruchtigkeit. Etwas hefig, malzig bleibend, zurückhaltend. Ab hier wird das Bier nicht mehr intensiver sondern verharrt auf der zurückhaltenden Position. Minimal malziger im Abgang. Ganz OK. /11/10/12//11

Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is malty, and the flavour is mainly malty with a slight bitter finish. Overall a nice mainly malty beer.

Bottle. Near black with a thin beige head. Aromas are coffee and soy with chocolate and caramel. Butter with yeast and spices. Flavours are molasses and coffee with berries and herbal notes. Quite slick on the palate with a dry finish. Decent.
