Poured from can into glass stein a red orange deep amber. Plenty of fading head and lace a slight off white color. Med body and co2. Aroma is caramel and toffee, taste is malty, with hay and grass notes. I got little of the tropical fruit mostly in the late finish. It sips sweet and finishes a bit bitter. Very nice I would get this again if it was a regular offering.

Meh. A typical bock. Take this rating for what itís worth because Iím not a fan of the style. Aroma was heavy malt with some mango and melon. Pour was a deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was way too sweet. Toasted bread, sweet malt and melon notes. Sticky wet finish with mild carbonation.

Draft pint at Fishale. I like it because it didnít have the raw alcohol punch of most maibocks. Nice hop notes, a hint of yeast and a little sweetness. Pleasant.

12 oz. bottle from one of the Beer Camp packs from Dutchís. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber with a big off-white head, rocky, that leaves lace in the glass and settles unevenly. Aroma of cedar, grass, caramel and toasted malts, tea, some fruits, and a bit of peppery spice. Flavor of caramel, tea, cedar, grass, pepper, and some tropical fruits. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really good, interesting beer.

Had on tap at The Grill Next after finishing up an intensive cave exploring tour we booked in Salem. $7.00 for the full pint. Pours a crimson-tinted reddish dark brown with which a foamy, off-white ringed head half a finger in length stood. Aromas of DME, acorns, autumnal leaves, mint, brown malt, Mandarin orange zest, black limes, muscat grape must, caramelized onions, and kindling. Tastes the same with the addition of cedar, white sage, Bible paper, and organic ketchup. Enthralling, yet had been a tad too earthy for my liking. After awhile, it tasted as if I had irrationally poured a Bock onto a tree, and furiously lapped it up with my tongue; so, essentially - strong German lager+bark.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Box was packaged on June 19, 2014.
This was poured into a pilsener.
The appearance was a bronzed amber color with a semi-thick rocky two and a half finger white to off white head. Thereís a decent amount of semi-bubbly and somewhat foamy lacing.
The smell started off with a light toasted caramel note and then had a graceful amount of tropical fruits backing it up nicely.
The taste had more of a combination of the tropical fruits and toasty caramel malts coming through fairly sweet.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sharp carbonation running about it. Thereís nothing graceful about how this one rolls across my tongue as thereís a decent sharp fruitiness there.
Overall, pretty good maibock Iím thinking I could have again.

Tasted from can. Pours a clear copper color with light tan head. Aroma is citrus fruit and some caramel. Taste is moderate to heavy sweetness and mild bitterness. You do get a bunch of tropical fruit flavors in the taste with a bunch of bready, toffee and caramel. Pretty good tasting maibock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange-copper color. Mango and citrus along with a wallop bready sweet malts. Big malts and fruitiness. Fairly sweet and caramel-ly throughout. Didnít go for it at first, but I mellowed into it. Strange, but nice.
