3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
Pours a mostly clear orangish coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malt, cereal grain, bread, and some light sweet notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a nice malt bill. gripweed57 (2871) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color capped by a moderate sized foamy white head. Malty nose has hints of buttery caramel and toasted grain. First sip is toasted malt and nuts. Sweet malty middle, like 12 grain bread and honey. Subtle spicy hop finish. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2017

Draught at Blue Stallion. Dark amber orange in color with malty nose and a lot of caramel. oobawa (1748) - 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.

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 (818) - 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.
