Love the murky golden pour w/ a big white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Delightful hop aroma. The taste has some undertoning bitterness but finishes pretty clean while leaving a decent amount of flavor on the palate. It’s smooth going down & a very good beer overall!

Served in a pint glass: pours a very light copper(was expecting something darker then found out it is a heller bock) with a fluffy head of creamy white foam - really fatastic head retention & lacing The bouquet gives off a floral midly citrusy scent while the aroma adds biscuit & bread notes. Light slightly slick body, clean hop earthy herbal bitterness with a subtly nutty or biscuit malt kick. The finish cleans your palate leaving you with a puckering sensation and lingering hop notes. Interesting stuff, not really my thing but I can see the appeal. This would go great as an afterwork beer or on a hot day outside. The style is supposedly a bock brewed for spring and I can totally see that. Nicely done. ozarkspops (368) - - JAN 10, 2014
Yellow golden hazy pour. Fluffy bright white head. Aroma is very floral. Lemony. Flavor is bready malt. Hop profile is earthy and herbal. Great aroma. Weaker flavor.

Pleasant, hoppy and sweet aroma. Pours a golden orange with a thick head. Fairly smooth if a bit flat. Slightly sweet finish. A nice beer.

The aroma is of wheat and dry hops. The hops, as I sip the beer, take on a character of grass and some citrus. The taste is very balanced between sourness and biterness. The palate is mostly strong, albeit with an unimpressive finish. That said, quite a good beer. (Note: after drinking, I checked and saw that this bottle was a bit past the due date... and it’s still quite good, so that says something. Now I just need to try it fresh!)

Slightly hazy gold, white head.
Fruity, light pine....hop aroma.
Orange malt, pine taste.
Rather more like an APA than a bock....
Pretty nice, though. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Musty barley malt aroma. Slightly hazy honey gold with a small white heat. Sweet brown bread / barley malt and sweet orange hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Meh. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle pours a yellowish copper color with a lacy off white head. Notes of caramel, earth, toffee, ammonia, fresh "green" hops, and spicy grains. Balanced malt profile with a great hop bite. shrubber85 (11382) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Orange/lemon and barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Nice beer but not very bock-like though. Bule (2160) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2013
650ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a bit of head. Prominent single hop flavor and aroma.
