Die unschuldige helle Farbe täuscht. Das intensive Sudverfahren resultiert in einem sehr hohen Alkoholgehalt, der aber durch unvorstellbare Mengen der Hallertauer Aromahopfensorte SAPHIR dezent verschleiert wird. Schönramer Saphir Bock ist daher einer der süffigsten und außergewöhnlichsten Vertreter seiner Gattung. Stark - Stärker - Schönramer Saphir Bock

Bottle, bought @ YNWA Beershop, Kolding.
Pours clear pale golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Aroma has doughy malts, apples, light vinious. Medium carbonation, fine dryish and light oily mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, light grassy, vinious, a bit of pine. Kinda dry finish even if the alcohol is a bit rough.

Vinx (94) - ITALY - JAN 19, 2016
Aroma of floral hops, maybe to high for this style. Then the caramel, the honey and the biscuit from the malts. Very elegant and balanced. Pale clear color, with medium white foam. Sweet but not cloying. No diacetyl. Well attenuated. Really a good one!

fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle at Birrivico, Como, bb 26.02.16
Hazy blond color with medium head. Among Bocks, this one is very perfumy and floral; moderately sweet, with wheat bread flavor, straws also in the aroma; correct bitterness, juicy final.
This is like a modern IIPA to the Bock world, the choice of pale malts is very appreciated.
Bold but almost refreshing.

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear straw with a short lived white head. Aroma is oldish, lemon. Flavor is loads of lemon, fruits (pineapple, orange). Finish is lemon, rather bitter, herbs and loads of pepper. Lingering lemon and herbs. Medium body, soft mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Russo (1957) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2015
Clear golden color with an amazing and adherent white head keeping a nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of corn and light citrus. Flavor is also malty and bitter slightly alcohol notes. Medium to high carbonation and medium body with a bitter and salty finish.

JoeinDahlem (1406) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2015
Light-colored bocks of this strength are a bit like most Tripels for me -- too sweet and strong to be useful. This one neatly solves that problem by being dryish and plainly bitter, accentuated by some juicy herbal hop flavor. Lovely bright greenish-gold color. Still strong, but dangerous instead of wasteful.

Theydon_Bois (14958) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle at Fritz Brauhaus, Greifswald, 18/07/15. Clear golden with a well appointed white crown of bubbles that retains well. Nose is sweet malt, caramel, light citric notes, pale malt, trace of booze. Taste comprises mellow fruit rinds, caramel, vanilla, straw, citric notes. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a boost level coming in around 5.99. Decent enough bock.

Cerbier (588) - - OCT 13, 2015
0,33l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht wie ein typisch bayrisch Helles. Im Geschmack sehr intensiv nach Malz, Vanille und Biskuit. Die Bockhörner sind gut versteckt.

alteregoo (557) - POLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Piana średnio obfita, biała, drobna, niezbyt trwała. Barwa złota, klarowna. Aromat delikatny, przede wszystkim słodowy, ciasteczkowy, w tle nuty trawiaste, czysto chmielowe. W smaku bardzo podobnie, słodowo, dość słodko, troszkę herbatników, biszkoptów, pikantnych przypraw i kwiatowych nut. Goryczka nieduża, trawiasta, pozostaje dłuższą chwilę w posmaku. Alkohol świetnie wkomponowany, lekko grzeje w przełyku. W afterteasie nieco estrów gruszkowo-mirabelkowych. Wysycenie średnie, drobniuteńkie. Bardzo klasyczne niemieckie piwo, poprawne, całkiem pijalne przy swojej mocy, choć przydałoby się nieco więcej chmielu na aromat i goryczkę, jak to miało miejsce choćby w ich Pilsie.

olsvammel (4938) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle from a bottle shop in Bamberg. Fruity and malty smell with caramel. Sweet and fruity taste with some toasted sugar and sweet malts. Noticeable but not overpowering ABV.
