The Neshaminator This is our take on a German wheat bock, but with a small twist. We brew this 8.5% holiday offering with orange blossom honey and keeping true to the style, over 50% wheat along with dark Munich malt, a hint of Chocolate malt, and German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops. While most German bock beers named with the -or ending are traditional double bock lagers, we decided to break from tradition a bit with not only the name of this beer, but the use of orange blossom honey as well. Prost!

egajdzis (6437) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Hazy brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Bananas, clove, caramel, roast were nice, the honey seemed out of place.

Sweet and malty, brown with a thin tan head. Caramel and cocoa, banana and spice, honey and yeast. A long and sweet finish.

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark Amber body with a small wispy beige head. The nose is rich dark fruit and over ripe bananas with some caramel and light yeasty esters. The flavor is pretty solid as well, nice banana and fruity notes, just enough yeast, lightly sweet, a little alcohol warmth on the finish. Medium bodied and a bit chewy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent stuff.

Pumpkin87 (247) - - APR 25, 2016
Pours chestnut brown with ruby highlights. Small-medium mocha head persists and leaves attractive lacing. On the nose, honey asserts itself immediately, although tracking more as apricot and cherry than orange, with nuts and malt in the mix plus a whiff of yeast. The palate is more complex, starting with dark fruits. The orange note then appears strongly enough to justify the advertising. Theres a bit of banana and clove and wheat, then the sweet malt base one expects from a bock. Along with the lush, chewy mouth and low carbonation, the effect is the sort of richness found in a Pedro Ximmez. Its not that sweet, but profound enough to scare off hopheads. Another well-conceived effort from this relatively new brewery.

Draught @ Cork City. Dark brown with reddish tint, small creamy beige head, low carbonation, tastes like soy, sour cherry, salty caramel, thin body, bitterish long finish. Interesting brew.

ben4321 (6277) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 3/9/15

Aroma: A very heavy sweet aroma, raisin, fig, a little molasses, nutty nots, and some wheat
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue, creamy beige head, and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, heavy sweet/fruity up-front, finishes on the nutty side
Palate: Drinks nicely, cloying, but not as cloying as youd guess, average carbonation, sticky finish
Overall Impression: I just realized I used the phrase "finishes on the nutty side" in my flavor review, which sounds like a road comic describing his mother-in-law. As for the beer, the cloyingness is held just enough in check to make this beer pretty enjoyable. Im actually surprised I liked it as much as I did considering that Im not usually a fan of this sweetness level without some balance, but this is a pretty nice beer. Even if it isnt the perfect beer for me personally, I gotta bump the overall a bit due to the nice complexity.
