Draft. Hazy orange. White head. Cold. Interesting. Good lacing. Not yeasty or malty. Not bland but don't know how to describe it.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy golden hued body with a medium sized, very slightly off-white head. Aromas are of tea, malt, medium sweet, stewed fruit, marmalade, mild oxidation, floral. Pretty clean yeast wise, but seems somewhat old. Flavors are hollow, bready, grainy, mild DMS, medium bitter with a very slightly bitter side of neutral balance. Moderate carbonation, dry, medium-low bodied. I’m not sure if this is an old bottle or not, but it doesn’t quite meet the expectations I’ve had for this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Delicious beer. Lots of malt and spice flavors with a touch of banana. Really good. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2012
22oz bottle, 2011 vintage. Sweet, bready malts, with a light pepper spice. Soft, smooth carbonation, dry texture. Some orange zest, something caramelly sweet, like a belgian waffle. Some floral hops; honey. Yellow orange color, becomes hazy with the sediment. Thin off-white head leaves decent lace. Sweet taste, with a good bit of light bitterness. Not cloying, pretty tasty. Sweet in the Belgian kind of way. Some banana. Only a light bit, if drunk too quickly. Very enjoyable and interesting brew. Better than expected.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks for leaving half of the bottle for me even though I hit my threshold and fell asleep.
The beer is fairly hazy and light orange in color, with 1/2" of creamy, white head that leaves some good lacing on the glass. The aroma brings malt, light caramels, floral notes, and subtle spice. The flavor is malt forward, with a healthy floral presence, and caramel malt flavors. The finish brings some hop bitterness to round things out, though malt flavors take over once again, lingering on the palate between sips. Alcohol content is hidden well. The sweet nature of the style precludes me from wanting a second helping. Overall, a decent beer and a solid example of the style. Recommended.

Tap sample at Smuttynose brewery in April 2010. Amber colour with a fluffy white head. Sweetish on the palate. Plenty of chewy, quite fat, malt. Some caramel & toffee. Pretty well done but a bit too sweet for me. Bocks are not really my thing at the best of times.

Bottle from Beers of the World, cellar aged 4 years. Nose of honey, biscuits, nicely aged with a bit of oxidation. Decently bitter finish following rich, creamy, mellow malts flavor. Full and rich, and has aged very well.

Aroma - Fruity
Appearance - Golden peach, slight haze, small but long-lasting head
Taste - Malty,
Palate - Smooth but a little harsh finish
Overall - On the right day, I could really like this beer but it isn’t hitting the spot today. ludhaber (127) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Good body. Not too much malt with good hops spice. At first slightly harsh bu then quite tasty and drinkable.
