Excellent seasonal that always seems too short lived. Strong taste with playful hops and a decent finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark copper with a decent sized off white head that fades to a ring. Leaves good lacing. Aroma is malt and a hint of lemon. Taste is caramel, malt, and a really nice hit of bitterness up front. Pretty full body. Good beer.

This is a great bock beer, one of my favorite bocks. The appearance is red with a hazy white head. The taste is malty goodness with just the right amount of citrus hops. It was smooth and a good drink to have after a long day of work. this pairs well with chicken, especially chicken wings!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured up a light reddish-brown with a one-finger thick head that dissipated rather quickly and left minute lacing. Roasted malts, floral hops, light chocolaty-spicy notes up front with a bright hoppy finish. Medium bodied that finishes clean with no bitter aftertaste. A great brew to enjoy in the spring as well as throughout the year.

Bottle. Malt and grain aroma. Pours deep copper with white fleeting head. Taste is malts, cereal, and sleight counterpoint of hops. Flavorful and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured translucent, fiery orange (lovely color) with an unfortunately short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up sweet honeyed notes, warm fruit, and a bready character with peppery and earthy accents.. clean and well-balanced. The flavor found honey, molasses, and bready notes at the core with dry white pepper and other related spices laced throughout.. very dry on the finish with a fine spicy warmth. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. tacky feel at times.. not a great feel, but it was a tasty, well-balanced brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of wagenvolks. Served in a pilsner glass.
Pours a muddy light brown color with a thin off-white head. Limited spotty lacing on the sides of the glass before falling into a thin collar. The nose is fairly plain with some bready malt and a touch of caramel. Bread crust there, too. The flavor brings some malt sweetness and lightly-toasted bread. Slightly doughy with some caramel and light toffee. Perhaps a bit nutty. Light bitterness in the midpalate and in the finish. The feel is medium with good carbonation. A solid take on the style.
