3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very malty flavour. Bright chestnut colour. Aftertaste is quite spicy. Very nice and easily drinkable. A little too much carbonation for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a clear body, dark amber in body and a small but dense, beige head. Caramel, a touch of spices and oranges, vienna malt and some hints of ginger. Some ginger and spicyness in the flavor too, and the orange shines through as well, leaving room for lightly roasted, caramellish malts. A bit low on bitterness I think, and I would like it more full-bodied, else it’s a damn fine almost sessionable beer. Well suited for making snowmen. 110524

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 Bottled (BB 03/2005)
Red ruby, good foamy medium head, lace. Sweet, malty, hoppy, berries, black currant nose, almost Belgium character. Medium-bodied, chewy, flavor of toffee, berries. Aftertaste has some late bitterness. Decent brew, but a bit unbalanced. Though this is weizen bock, this has some Märzen notes. (6/4/5/3/12 3.0)
Re-rated, alc. 5.6% (BB 09/2006)
Ruby red color, creamy white head, lace. Aroma has wheat and rye, some tobacco. Medium to full bodied. Sweet, rounded barley malty flavor. Real cross over -beer of styles. (5/4/7/3/13 3.2)

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 Medium amber-brown colour. Thin head. Aroma is bland caramel. Tastes like diacetyl, astringent bark and roots, some caramel. Finishes with an unpleasant diacetyl slickness. This 2008 version is pretty gross.
Old rating: Dark amber; aroma shows brown sugar, spice (ginger, orange peel), sweet earthy malt. Earthy, caramelly malts. Good chewy character. Funny that the brewer kept insisting this was a traditional wheat bock, when it is not made with a weizen yeast, and it is spiced with cinnamon, ginger and orange peel! 6-3-6-3-12 = 3.0

Bottle, bought @ Kvickly, Haderslev.
Pours a lovely, clear, dark red-brown with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has raisins, caramel, toasted malts and soft milky notes. Mild sweetness. Highish carbonation, fair lightish and somewhat dry mouthfeel. Flavour has chocolate, raisins, light liqourice. Some coriander in the finish that is also light herbal dry. Quite fine.
