Bottle at home. Hazy orange reddish brown with big fizzy beige head. Apricot, red apple, caramel, brown bread, light yeast, light rye bread, soft mineral notes. It’s quite fruity and malty, in a nice matching way. Medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and slight watery feel. Not bad. anstei (2248) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 19, 2016

Bottle. Dark red-brown, white head. Spicy aroma, little cinnamon and fruit. Lively carbonation, like most of Berghoeve-beers. Not very sweet, nice bitterness at the end. Very nice bock. markextrae (4424) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2015
