   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: slow steady stream of bubbles helps keep a creamy white head afloat above orange-copper hues. Swirls with lace while not disturbing the head too much.
Nose: gentle sweetness of honey rolls, dried apricots, dried peaches. Freshly skinned apples sweet juicy flesh. Green grapes with skins included. Honeyed rolls encompass everything. Gentle.
Palate: gentle sweetness permeates, pervades, and soothes all the flavors held within her tender embrace. Honeyed bread infused with green grapes, apricots, and apples. Slight bitter lemon finish. Love the mouthfeel velvet. Green and yellow pears super ripe, so much so when you bite into it the skin melts and juices trickle down your chin. Whisper of spice in the back.
Final Thoughts: a fine delicate bock neither overwhelming but not too subtle either as to not be noticed. Like a gentle symphony that soothes without the snoozing. I like this spring seasonal, a lot, and I look forward to its release next year.

oobawa (887) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Buttery and weak, with a mildew nose and noticeably slack carbonation. Tastes mildly sweet, with a corn and caramel undertone rubbing up against toast and nothing, leading to a modest Brit-hop fade. Not good.

DocJitsu (1874) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Pours a copper golden with a creamy, antique white head. Bubble gum and sweet citrus nose. Hearty mouthfeel. Flavors follow the nose faithfully. Decent all around beer, especially for long Mardi Gras parades.

rollinsr (622) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 3, 2017
Pours clear amber with minimal head. Aroma is yeast esters with hints of malt sweetness. Flavor carries some sweetness to it with notes of apple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (1096) - truckee, California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Smells of malt and spices. Cream soda colored. Nice smooth malts light but fitting coin flavor.

wombat23 (1089) - Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. As Abita Mardi Gras Bock. Hazy pale amber with an off-white head. Aroma and taste of malt, caramel, and bread. Fairly mild. Decent.

darbeer75 (764) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Aroma: malty and bready; Appearance: light amber, cloudy, with thin white head; Taste: starts with maltiness of Turbodog but ends with cereal-like, almost pilsner taste; Palate: medium body with long, sweet/cereal finish; Overall: okay for Abita; might drink again if available.

ordybill (1568) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light golden amber color with a large off-white head. The aroma is malt with some citrus. The taste is sweet grain. A nice offering from Abita.

scarletfire65 (1382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Bready malts on the nose. Clean malty flavor profile, lagery, crackers, very mild bitterness. Decent helles.

beer_rookie (495) - Arkansas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a very clear golden amber color. About two fingers white head. Excellent retention, good lacing. Beautiful.

Aroma is bready, yeasty. Caramel and sweet. Not very aromatic.

Taste is sweet and malty. Almost syrupy. Tastes good, but bland.

Mouthfeel is medium full bodies. Pretty high ABV, but well hidden. Not bitter at all.

Overall, its good. Bocks are among my least favorite styles. This is fairly good. If I were wanting a Bock, I would certainly consider this. So, yes, Id have this again.

Eh, not a good bock. Clearish brown. Bready and oddly spiced bock with some sort of weird off taste. Not my fav.
