4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled September 13, 2012.
Appearance: The body is clear and pours a dark mahogany with a tall and messy light tan head. This is a great looking beer in every way.
Aroma: The aroma is mild but smells very nice. The aroma is sweet with caramel with fruity aromas of apple. This smells great, just a bit weak. Please bring up the aroma strength!
Taste: The taste mimics the flavor providing a nice caramel malty base with fruity flavors throughout of raspberry and apple. Lovely.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I wish this were available in New Jersey, this would be my Spring beer of choice if it were available here. This is the epitome of what should be enjoyed in Spring, shame I can’t think of any substitutes.

A dark, yet not dark, beer from a popular brewery in southern Wisonsin. Goes down smooth, unfortunately not year round. A "load up when found" type beer.
Personally, one of my favorite beers hands-down.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, a nuttiness, some light fruits, and floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark caramel brown with quick fading head. Sweet, malty front and moderately ambivalent finish. Surprisingly thin, lacking the weight of a body that would have risked sickly sweet but also providing some interest. Disappointing. Bottle.

Thanks Tom. color is a light brown- a bit lighter than I had expected....the nose is all cinnamon and a little bit of malt, but primarily cinnamon for some reason. Body is very light....taste is spice cake, that cinnamon again, maybe some ginger too. Kind of a different block interpretation. More spicy than sweet. Closer to a brown ale.

12 ounce bottle poured a dark amber color with aromas of caramel, sweet malt and some sugar. Flavors are caramel, sweet and sour fruit, malt, and some light earth. Interesting beer for a bock.

Has some sweet malty notes with a tad bit of copper. Taste is similar with a bit of thick caramel/bread tastes.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown pour with a frothy white head. Burnt brown sugar, toasted malt, apple, pear, grape, and leaves. A little sweet, almost light-bodied, reminiscent of an oktoberfest. Brief astringent finish, no alcohol presence.

This new seasonal from New Glarus is a must try for New Glarus fans. It pours a dark brown color and has that familiar bock smell to it. This beer starts out with a semi strong bock taste but finishes very nicely with little after taste. Pretty smooth and nice flavor, definetly a good taste for the price.
