4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from In de Wildeman. Fresh bottle- .5 liter split with Edo. Pours a very nice deep honey gold - clear with a massive tight sticky white head. Aroma is honey with big toasted biscuit and huge bready pils malts that have been slightly caramelized and nice fresh herbal and flowery hops. Flavor is fresh pils malt, slight carapils, mostly just tons of pils malt on top of more malt, with slight caramelization in the kettle- insanely fresh bread and biscuit cut with clean fresh herbal slightly grassy fresh hops- fairly low bitterness, just enough to balance the malt. Insanely clean yet still a big malty body- smooth as can be. Awesome Heller Bock!!

Bottle from De Bierkoning. Golden colour with a big offwhite head. Refreshing grassy hops balance the sweet maltiness. Decent bitterness throughout, hints of bread. A solid heller bock that takes no chances.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9 oz. bottle pours out a slightly hazy gold under a spare, collapsing off white head with little lace. Malty, caramel, fruity aroma with little hops in evidence. Some graininess and a faint floral character come through as well. Smooth, medium body, very lightly carbonated, a bit syrupy on the palate. Rather intense malty sweetness with strong caramel and toffee flavors prove to be too much to handle for the light hoppy bitterness that fights for attention. The sweet finish is tempered by a lingering tangy subtle bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Fruity, estery aroma. Yeasty taste with mild hints of citrus. Golden/yellow color with white head that quickly dissipates. Contained some floaties...might not be the breweries fault, but they were there none the less (could have been old?). Overall an okay beer, but not sure I would get again.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap. Quit beautiful beer with an elegant white head. Aroma is short of wet bread(malt and yeast). Taste is bitter oatmeal porridge, a slight hint of metal.
