3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Ruby color, hazy. Big, dense off white head with long retention. Strong aroma’s of red/sweet fruit, (rasp-?/straw-?)berries. Retronasal there’s still fruit, but also some caramel and hops. Flavor is medium bitter with a malty sweet backbone. Medium bodied. Finishes roasted and quite bitter. Nice enough, but the fruit aroma was a bit off.

Hazy amber body with creamy off white head. Fruity aroma, Belgian yeast, red berries, bready, starberry yoghurt and cookies. Simple yet flavourful body, starting fruity and ending with a light bitterness. Pretty tasty, well made. Classic style with a modern twist. Low key, though. Nice. (33cl bottle traded with Rob, thanks!)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost IPAy in floral notes and slight bitterness. Muddy finish which isn’t too great. Not sure why this is mentioned as a Heller Bock. Good beer though, as are all from Butcher’s Tears.
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Utrechts Lentebier. Bit cloudy orange golden color, short frothy head. Served pretty cold, but still I could get quite some fruity hops and biscuity malts. Quite bitter taste, again the biscuity malt. Almost like a decent malty IPA. Like!
