Pours clear brown with a big head. Smell is absent.
Slight bitter dry taste, but overall is a sweet beer, as you expect with these kinds of beers.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@Home. Malty and light fruity aroma. Brown, beige head, good lace. Sweet, malty, light fruity, bitterish finish, light herbal. Bit thin. Flavourful, bit too sweet, odd bitterness. So much about the beer. However the rest... topfermented Bock? Does that even exsist? Is it still a Bock? Secondly it says it has Gruut/Gruit in it? Why? In a Bock? And why at all if it’s hidden so well you don’t taste anything that leans towards Gruit?? Stupid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 Clean brown bodied with small yet stable beige head. Quite grainy, some roasted nuts and dry. Taste is medium sweet, especially noticeable in the ending, and has some herbal bitterness in the beginning. Some sour note as well, nt sure if that?s supposed to be there. Feel mass produced. No really not very rich or flavourful. Cheap grainy feel to this one. Disappointing. (22cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)
Medium brown, murky body and active tan lace. Boy this is sweet. Caramel candy, cheap grains, some spice, some bread but mostly brown sugar. Taste is equally sweet, although it has some burned notes. No, not great this Belgian bock. (On tap at Utrechts Bokbierfestival)
