4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
355ml bottle at home , poured into a glass tankard, ABV 6.5%
Dark orange colour on the body, slighty hazy, with a small but quite thick white head, with quite good retention, leaving light lacing around the glass. The appearance only is much better than any heller bock I had till now.
Aroma has olenty of hops, caramel, sweet malts, tropical fruits.
Taste is very hoppy and bitter too, with the bitterness multiplying on its way to the aftertaste. Again tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, little caramel.
Medium body, average carbonation, very dry palate.
Great beer, definitey the best heller bock I had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is golden with an orange hue and cloudy with a white foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is caramel malt and honey with a distinct floral hop/yeast quality. Taste is rich caramel malt with residual sweetness and honey, with a well balanced hop bite and fruity yeast character. Almost has a slight tea character. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium-high carbonation. Finishes crisp and dry with a lingering caramel malt

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color with a very small head. Aroma is a little malt and slight hops. Taste is a little weird to me. A lot of malt then a lot of hops and then some alcohol at the end. I guess it’s well made but it’s not for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33l fles uitgeschonken in een glas diep oranje amber van kleur, met een volle net niet witte schuimkraag. geur is een mix van vers brood met rijp fruit en ook wat kruidig als kaneel. Smaak is zoet met sinaasappel, graan broodachtig. Body is vol en de afdronk blijft mooi staan. Lekker, zeker voor een zoet bier.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of banana, raisins mixed with hops spicyness. There is also nice touch of bread and caramel notes. In higher temperature alcohol is really noticeable. Taste: Very malty (bread, caramel) with toasted flavours. Spicyness, flowery notes which reminds me of black tea. It is quite sweet with dry, little sour finish. Good balance, malty and fruity beer. We can see that they used much hops. High drinkability. Good one.
