3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful amber color. Quite good, mainly characterized by the caramel, with a more clear hoppy note in the aroma and a bold final, but a bit too metallic.

Bronze/amber color, nice off-white head. Quite carbonated. Has a sweet and bready aroma with some bread in it. Flavor brings some toffee, sweet, but turns into some bitterness.

Clear copper with a lasting beige head. Aroma is sweet, dried fruit, caramel, malty and spicy. Flavor is rather sweet and fairly bitter. Soft finish. A very positive surprise as I thought I was opening just another lager. 211210

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)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: This one pours a clear, rich amber color with two fingers of off-white head and very nice lacing.
S: I’m not all that big of a fan of the nose on this. It’s very malty, with a lot of caramel, and it seems to be incredibly spicy. I’m okay with some mild spice in a beer, but this one is a bit too much.
T: The taste is better than the nose, that’s for certain. The caramel and malt is quite up front, with the spices much more subdued.
M: The fizziness is rather light for a lager and it’s rather full bodied as well. I haven’t had this beer in quite some time and I found this to be quite impressive.
D: This is a pretty easy drinking beer and one that you could easily have several of in a session. I’m not the biggest fan of bocks, but I found this one to be fairly enjoyable and wouldn’t turn it down if offered one.

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
