Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours almost clear golden with a slight haze. Fine, staying, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet, pear wine gums, crisp malts. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel with light dryness. Flavour has sweet malts, doughy, hay, light apple. Fine lingering bitter finish. ganache (6029) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. Nose is sweet and lightly candyish, caramel with jammy fruit, touch of green apple; pours orange-golden with a sudsy off-white head. Taste is bitter and very sweet with light metal and strong jammy fruit, somewhat grainy malt and alcohol, warmth. Okay, more than a little grainy. Mild lemony citrus and white grape, strong honey, touch of astringent grit on the back end, nice and oily/juicy from healthy hop additions, medium body that quenches. There’s also this note of sort of residual white rice/starch left after a stove-top boil for dinner, might be a texture thing. Mostly clean (though not the aftertaste!) but this one is really rough around the edges. junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Soft bread notes in the bouquet. Very nice cloying mouth feel. Slight honey tones. I’m liking this. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Aroma of grain, white rice and honey. Mild soapy citrus as well. Hazy yellow, looks like a flat hefe. Taste. however, swings from a very bitter start to a dry starchy middle and finally a bitter and starched finish. Astringent to say the least. Really not like any style of bock I have had...it is well hopped. Hops win points here at RB, making this the 5th best heller bock currently produced per the site’s raters.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate honey, light grain/cereal, grass, and a touch of orange. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) golden-orange with a good amount of sediment and a small soapy white head that quickly fades to a thing film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of honey with some light orange notes. The finish has light-moderate citrus, grain/cereal, light grass, and a touch of floral notes. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Huge sweet malty aroma. Hazy orange with an off white head. Flavor is predominately malt, but not as sweet as the aroma would lead you to believe. Well balanced though not complex. beersorcerer (52) - Armpit of the Panhandle, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Now this won my heart over with the first whiff of malt hinted with a spicy/pepper like aroma. And this character is also found in the taste.
Light yellow very light brown color and a fairly moderate carbonation pour a nice combination of fine all the way to large bubbles in the small foam.
A small amount of hop taste and dry palate with touch of sweet malt found in the aroma with a bit of alcohol towards the end.
Lovely - now where can I try this on tap? Cuso (8933) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle from trade with Geiserich. Hazy golden color with small white head.Biscuity malt, grapes, oranges, orange zest. Malty taste with orange, orange zest, aromatic hops. Alcohol is well hidden. Very nice, refreshing beer. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Really good for style. Blonde with decent head and lacing. I was going to say it tastes like saffron because I mixed up the words - shows how much my tongue really knows. Nice florals and spice here though. Candied malt. Average carbonation. Tap at Novare Res. Travlr (25749) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Draft. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of meadow, seven grain bread baking. Taste is malty with some floral notes. Nice.
