COLOSSAL THREE is a Heller Bock. Heller Bocks are the palest and hoppiest of Bock style beers. Ours is a beautiful tawny color which comes from the Munich malt. We have chosen noble hop varieties that impart floral, spicy aromas and flavors.

This lager beer was fermented cold and aged at 32 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 weeks. The long fermentation and aging process gives this strong beer a remarkably clean finish, for which our beers are known.

jgb9348 (5437) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Great slightly hazy and honey tinted light amber coloured body with a one centimetre tall tan head. Very mild aroma of grass, honey, malt and a bunch of floral notes! Full-bodied; Very rich flavour of honey, grass, hay, malt, oak, flowers and a lot of spices noticeable on the finish. Aftertaste shows a subdued earthy flavour, but a well refined sweetness from honey and toffee. Overall, a nice and smooth herbal flavour to go with tall the honey! Great to sample here at Whole Foods for only US$3,50! I sampled this full pint on draught at Whole Foods in Falls Church (Tyson’s Corner) on 01-May-2014 for US$3,50.
