COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blondibock was first brewed as Bluesapalooza Blonde Bock in the summer of 2011, and was so popular that we brought her back in 2012.

Brewed as a German-style Blonde Bock in March of this year, she was racked into Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels after two weeks in the fermentation vessels. There, this beer matured for three months picking up much of her color and flavor from the oak barrels.

500 ml bottle at the ISKTR 2016, Hervanta, Finland. Thanks Euphemos!
Slightly cloudy golden color with no head. Sweet honey, mild bitterness and alcohol in the aroma. Super sweet flavor with honey and whiskey. I couldn’t say this is Heller Bock.

@ISKTR 2016. BBE 30-nov-2016. Hiivaisa, alkoholinen, brittisiiderimäinen tuima tuoksu, suutuntuma hapokas, todella alkoholinen, jää aika yksinuottiseksi. Viinapommi lähinnä.

50 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2016.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Apricot and honey on the nose, ripe banana, subtle bourbon notes, faint wheat. Flavor is apricot and peach, honey and yeast, strong wood. Not a Heller Bock, interesting.

after4ever (7535) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2016
22. Thanks, G&K! Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that settles away fairly quickly. Big sweet nose, lots of caramel and floral notes and vanilla and a bit of oak. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Sweet mid palate and attack--caramel, flowers, sweet cereal, vanilla. Thick and heavy but still fairly drinkable. Long sweet finish.
