Voor een Heineken een prima biertje. Helaas blijft dit biertje redelijk oppervlakkig. Te zoet ook

Kita (1986) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear ruby brown color with medium tan-like creamy head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of herbs, caramel, roasted malt and dark fruits. Taste starts with very sweet caramel, toffee and notes of burnt sugar, follows by some fruity acidity, mild spicy mouthfeel and light hoppy finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Sweet as a hell, on the other hand first good Heineken beer...

Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Industrial example of Dutch Dunkelbock, launched every year in october like the tradition prescribes. Beige, delicate, sticky head, deep copper red colour; caramelly aroma, wheat, banana, plums. Velvety soft palate, somewhat sugary but at first subtle sweetness, sourihs hint, chocolate touch; sweet and somewhat cloying finish.

Bottle (Old Notes-Label says Tarwebok)-Pours a dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of sweetness, malt, caramel, and fruits. Taste of the same with some banana and clove coming thru as well. This medium bodied brew is not bad.

Grzesiek79 (4132) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 25, 2013
sredniej jakosci piwo z mnostwem karmelowej slodyczy troche wanilli i nawet piana spora. Kolo brazowy ale niezbyt gesty, przepuszcza swiatlo i to mocno. Finisz niestety krotki, brak owocowosci i troche wytrawnosci dla kontrastu bo nieco zbyt karmelowe mi sie wydawalo.

Erzengel (8174) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2013
Ein filtrierter Weizenbock auch mal interessant. Die Farbe im Glas ist tiefes Kastanienbraun. Der Geruch etwas neutral-alkoholisch. Der Antrunk ist sehr mild-weich wie bei einem Kristallweizen. Schnell kommt eine milde Malzigkeit ins Spiel, die sich mit einer fr meinen Geschmack etwas zu sen Note verbindet. Hinzu kommt auch noch eine milde Herbe, die aber zur Neutralisierung der Se viel zu schwach ausfllt. Der Nachgeschmack ist herb-malzig-s, gerade so auf der Grenze zum zu Sen und hlt lange angenehm an.
--> Ein leckeres Bockbier, dem aber etwas weniger Zucker gut tun wrde. Vielen Dank an Klschtrinker! Test vom 6.2.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,11,8,12,8 - 9,20

Bottled: unk look is standard with some initial foam over an Amber beer, etched surface. Nose Carries, cherry and toasted brown sugar along with some decent Bock malts. Taste is vanilla, sweet, wheat and fruity. A little thin bodied with hi carb. Drinkable. Serving type: bottle 06-23-2012
