Bottled@fonefan. Golden colour, small slightly off-white foamy head. Aroma is floral, fruity, some mild toffee, and sweet. Flavour is quite similar, a bit too sweet, but otherwise it’s got the heller bock elements to it.

Aroma has sweet honey tones, malt and some grassy hoppiness. Flavour is sweet with honey, malty notes, grassy hops and some menthol. Another heller bock too sweet for me. The grassy hops are nice though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 Bottle at the brewery, shared by Stefan Zehendner. Pale gold,effervescent with a still white head.
Nutty, toasty, musty aroma with strong minerals. Nose is spicier than the maibock, seedy/ toasty, more malty as well... just as mineral-heavy as his other beers. Superb cleanliness. Honey / mineral finish. Medium-full body. Hard mineral water + carbonic acidity + rich melanoidin fullness in the mouth. Faint oxidation doesn’t spoil the fun. (3.7)
November 2014 from the maturation tanks at 8 weeks: stellar, soft and velvety, perfectly clean, very expressive. Winner icky sticky rich melanoidin bomb Heller Bock. (4.2)
