bottle. pours a translucent copper body with a large fluffy white head. the aroma is very floral and perfumey - notes of grass, cereal, and cookies. flavour starts out warm and sweet with plenty of bread and caramel malt. mild tingly carbonation. there is also a good amount of grassy hop flavour too. pretty good. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2005
Sugary, floral, lavender, soapy hop forward aroma. Clear, deep copper coloured body is topped by a generous, off white head that recedes to cover with some lace. Caramel and dark fruit flavours are subdues as it the fairly light bitterness. Some alcohol is apparent. Medium body with soft carbonation. Sampled from a 12oz growler with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere at the service area off I87N in Glenns Falls, NY.

Definitely has some caramel in the start. It’s like a lighter, hoppier, not-as-good Doppelsticke. A nice beer for sure. And actually, the heaviness does creep up on you. badgerben (5378) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2005
Copper color with no head. What is with the green bottles?! Skunked out malt aroma and flavor. Blech. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2005
A strange "over-maltiness" that is hard to describe- lots of paper flavor. I also expected more alcohol, but at this rate in my evening, the lower is better! :)

Copper color. Sweet fragrance and creamy-sweet taste - the sweetness of caramel and mellowness of banana. Low on carbonation. Not bad; I would certainly drink this again. OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
Couleur ambrée, apparence claire et pleinement filtrée vêtu d’une dense mousse blanche. Malt caramel, toffee, grain de la ferme et herbes. Ce genre d’interprétation d’une bock me surprend à chaque fois. Saveurs restreintes, étalement court, beurre, caramel, herbes. Finale sucrée, faible carbonatation.

This is a bock? What? I’m sick of this brewery... I keep buying their beer and it keeps sucking. It’s all got that overly bready, vegetably taste. This tasted the exact same as the Dunkel of their’s I tried, which basically means suck. Don’t bother. Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle. Whew, who let the skunk out? Yellowish amber, decent head, that familliar skunky sour smell that many german lagers seem to have. Sour, bready tastes. A bit of hops, malty sweet. Blech. I just can’t get into German stuff. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2005
Draft, Half Time. Totally clear biscuity amber, covered by a simple white ring. Weird nose combines elements from tartish mint pills, honey and overcooked bread. Mysteriously chocolatey, stuffy. The herbal bite from the hops is very nice, but the absence of any breadyness is disappointing. Slight alcohol bite feels a bit out of place as well. Softly earthy and bananaish in the finish. Average..
