Described by the brewer as a "Heller (bright), palatable, hop-accented Bock" (Blonde Doppelbock might be the closest style-wise). Contains fermented pear juice and pears in the wort, according to the brewer Mike Schmitt (source: Nikl-Braü facebook).

Thanks to Thomas for sharing (and importing) this pricey and unusual bier!
Quick review from written notes.

Appears a bright yellow gold, with a thin layer of soft white foam that collars around the edges, leaving behind random bits of spotty lace. Clarity is sharp, and trails of carbonation are visible in the glass.

Spicy noble hop aroma with a soft pear schnapps note.

Malty and smooth, the malt character reminded me of a single malt whisky. Toasted pine nuts, dried fruit. Again, some resemblance to pear schnapps. Big bodied but smooth and drinkable, though the taste was somewhat muted. Alcohol was present, but pretty well integrated. A unique high gravity lager, described as a kind of "German Double IPA", and I can see the correlation despite the obvious differences in fermentation.
