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 @ Y.N.W.A Beershop. Pours clear yellow with a off white head. Freshly hoppy. Lemon, citrus and some evident alcohol. Flavor has grain and burning alcohol. A shame..

italianjohn (2778) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Pale golden yellow pour with a thin layer of white head .... Aroma of sweet malts, little corn on the nose, grassy/floral notes ..... Taste is sweet and of crystal/caramel malts along with corn ... Grassy and floral hops .... Little too sweet for my liking ... Has a very slight bittersweet and dry hopped finish

Vinx (98) - 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 (18056) - 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 (1995) - 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 (1438) - 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 (15891) - 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.
