A refreshing amber colored Bock brewed with German malt and noble variety hops, and a Munich lager yeast. Cool fermented and lagered to maturity, this beer is smooth, satisfying and malty without being cloying – aiming at the drinkability of a Sierra Nevada Glissade but to a genuine Single Bock style. Named after a Native American princess who met her end over the eponymous Berkshire County waterfall - the highest in the state of Massachusetts. RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Traditional German dishes such as bratwurst and sauerkraut; blue cheeses; dark chocolate or toffee or caramel desserts. Note - Originally brewed at 6.4% ABV.

Fresh out of the growler from the brewery, this bock is sizable, contains ample malts, and suggests a divesture into forthcomngs, within taste that is. A medium hiitting bock, this is set forth with tight melon underones while proving fit within the amber suspicision of bock deliverance. A mild throwing brew that envokes a community feel of a bock brewed in your back yard, this is just what it is. Amber malts previal, hops linger in the back, caramel tads linger in, and medium sweetness round out the finish. Enjoyale and fullfiling is the end. Bish bash!

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Draft. Pours orangey with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malt, raisin, dough. The flavor is similar, malt-heavy, some dried fruits, and some light hop bitterness in the finish. Good. [949]

(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Cloudy amber pour with a thin white head. Rather mild and subtle sweetness in the aroma with some hints of malt and caramel. Flavor is pretty much the same. Slightly sweet and mildly malty with a bit of dryness at the end. A bit thin-bodied.

I really enjoyed this, I thought it was well balanced, The alcohol was well masked and it had a fresh taste to it. The malt didn’t dominate the palate and it improved after it had warmed slightly. A really good interpretation of a classic bock. Sampled at Spuyten Duyvil. Thanks to Alex Hall

Slightly hazy amber pour. The aroma is a little bit sweet. A bit of metallic character and some light cardboard. Simple but not all that tasty. A bit of pale malt sweetness.

bbbeer (745) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Draft. Brown-orange with white head. Caramel aroma with some sourness. Medium body. Flavor has some malt, some hops, some acidity. Not bad. Not too bocky though, would have expected more malt dominance.

On tap at Rattle’n’Hum. BBB is named after a nice little waterfall, and I commend them for that. It is pretty dry, tangy, and acidic for a bock. It is not that bocky really, but it is good.

Draft with PJ at Rattle N Hum. Pours a hazy amber body with nice lacing. Aroma is sweet toasty, bready malts and some hops additionally. Mouthfeel is pleasant with some sweeter notes coming though in the finish.
