It made a somewhat favorable first impression, but is one of those beers I would like to try again to see if the impression is sustained.

Taste is earthy hops, slight metallic, caramel malt, fruity, decent. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, fruity caramel aftertaste. Overall, its pretty good.

Cardboard, herbs, and caramel aroma. Lots of straw too. Taste is sweet, grassy, and full of grain. Somewhat sticky aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Senap (703) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2017
Tjusig ljusrd frg och hrig knsla. Smakmssigt ingen topp. Den br inte den lite hgre alkoholhalten vl utan det blir en inte helt angenm bismak.

Cristobal37 (1094) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 10, 2017
Vom Flasche. Dark orange little head. Sweet sugary booze aroma, cherry, sponge cake aroma. Sugary, some spice, resiny hop. Palate is bitter, toffee and fruitcake. Pretty cool heller bock. Really balanced beer. Noy my favorite ever, cheers for a heller bock thats got that boozy sugar and spices, but retains some bitterness in the finish.

Bottle (6,5%) from Systembolaget. Golden amber color with white head. Nice aroma with notes of caramel and herbs. Taste of caramel and malt. Very nice and much appreciated!

Bottle from systembolaget. Not sure about this one, lovely appearances but just too much raw lagery alcohol taste which isnt smooth at all.

Russmeister (5) - Jackson, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2017 does not count
This is a fantastic heller bock. If you do not care for it, perhaps you are not a fan of the style. May I suggest you go back to your regular over hopped beer, and rate IPA beers which are more in your wheelhouse. This is not a happy beer, nor is it supposed to be.

IndianaRed (4425) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2017
On Tap at Prost! Clear deep golden. Full smooth fluffy white head. Light toasted maltiness. Smooth German lager but a littel more body. Very nice.

bartlebier (3933) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2017
33cl Granate bb11/2017. - Deep barley yellow. Sweeitish barleysugar metallics in aroma with a surprisingly present fume nose - ,maybe some powder vanilla in the pwder sugar, with some goodwill ; taste is fully barley sugars, stopping short of becoming more engaging honey pops - and again that macro-metallic tinge, with again some alcohol fumes. Grasses, barley, minimal charm coming in retronasal when its too late. Annoying oily mouthfeel that my palate is sensitive to. - - Theres a buried supermarket lemonade in there as well, and it does alloy with a certain hoppiness...but you do not want to let it warm to find out how (Turkish Sprite Hallertau Nettle Ed.). - Why is this still well-regarded as a seasonal?
