Bottle was a 2007 vintage, bought at the brewery in April 2012.
A complex and inspiring beer.
Barley candy joy, but not too sweet. Dry finish.
Malty, splendid. Wish I could have tasted the 2012 version, before aging, just to see what 5 years does to a good brew.
Damn, I only bought one... Next time.

A: hazy orange with a nice head and lacing.
S: bubblegum. Sweet grape, strawberry fruit blend.
T: mild and malty with a fruity center and a near peppery end. Allot going on here.
M: solild carbonation generates a building peppery heat with bitter semi-dry ending.
O: solid. I like the maibock.

Pours a light very hazy beautiful golden color. Looks inviting.
Smells sort of like sweet caramel and candy with both hoppy and malty notes mixed. I cant even describe what it smells like exactly but this smells AMAZING.
The taste does NOT disappoint! Im getting some alchohol but mixed very well with all the scents described above. Doesnt stray from an actual beer taste at the same time.
The mouthfeel fits this one great. Very BIG. SOme carbination but that doesnt take away from the heavy smoothness.
Overall its a little different than most maibocks Ive had before but that doesnt mean its not a great beer that shouldnt at LEAST be tried!!
