Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit, vanilla and spices. Flavor was lightly sweet with caramel, fruit, wood, oranges and had some spiciness. slowrunner77 (12043) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Hazy golden pour. Aroma is fruity and alcoholic with brandy oak and yeast coming through as well. Flavor is nice if a little hot in the finish. Fruitiness is the strong point. Odd combo that works, but is too expensive. BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Pours a hazy bright orange color and with a very effervescent white head. Aroma is very fruit, mango and banana most particularly, some apricot, yeast, honey, maybe some slight spiciness. Taste is fruit, mango, melon, banana, then to a brighter pear and apple and some apricot, then malt body that is ultra smooth, rich, almost creamy on the palate, and always a strong warming booze note throughout. Palate is pleasant but nothing spectacular. Overall, a very intriguing beer, yet less complex than some other Hof Ten’s I’ve had. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
(backlog ZBF 04/2013) Cask sample courtesy of brewer, merci. Feels very light for the 10 ABV. Refined oily brandy palate, white grape sweetness, but all in all very contained: does not jump out of its restrained barrel-aged shell. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Very pleasent aroma but very lite. Amber in color,very clean looking with a great pure white head. Tons of flavor and one of the most unique blondes I have had. Flavors are all over the place from caramel,citrus,alcohol,spice and malt.
