Well, they stopped brewing this tasty little gem in May, so I guess I should put my lazy ass in front of the computer and review the beer before the small remaining supply dries up for the year. I have got to say, I likes what Stoudts does. Blondie here pours a brilliant honey-gold and atop sits a nice, tight little creamy head. She's a lass that's easy on the eyes, but can she hold a decent conversation? Before she opens her mouth though, I get a whiff of her perfume. Sweet, sticky malt and more than a hint of the clover honey they use to brew this seasonal. One sip later and I must confess, there is more going on here than just a pretty face. Fat malt sits on the palate, but it isn't too heavy or syrupy. Just big-boned. A dry bitterness runs down the sides of the tongue, lending a superb drinkablility and it all ends in a nice, honeyed finish that slides quickly down the throat. I can safely attest to having too many of these on several occassions, and though no animals were hurt in the events that followed, many a questionable camera phone picture was taken. So yes, I would say it is very quaffable and will cause your better judgement some problems. All in all, she is a fun girl who will take you for a wild ride given the right conditions.

3.79/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a nice clear amber color with a one finger head of just off-white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweet and malty smell with lots of fruit of peach and apricot as well as a bit of toffee and some biscuit and bready malt smells. Along with these aromas are some lighter citrus and earthy hop mixed with just a hint of lemon.

Taste – The taste begins with a quite bready and sweet flavor with the sweet being a mix of the lighter fruits that were detected in the nose (peach and apricot). A little bit of orange and grape work their way onto the tongue more toward the middle of the taste, with them being joined by a somewhat grainy flavor. Toward the end, the apricot and peach really intensify and mix with a little amount of an earthy hop flavor and some light hay, leaving a nice fruity sweet and bready flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lower side for a maibock of 7.0 % abv. with a carbonation level that is average. Overall a little thicker body may have been better for the heavy sweet and malty flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was alright.

Overall – A very easy drinking maibock at 7.0 % abv. with a nice big sweet and bready taste. Well worth a try.

Thanks to ShanePB for this bottle.

A: Pours hazy light orange color with tints of gold in it. A 1.5 finger white foamy head forms upon pouring and has decent retention. Nice white lacing forms all around the glass.

S: Some bready malt, light citrus fruits, lemon, and a little bit of grain. Rather light.

T: A nice combination of light citrus fruit, honey, and some grainy malt. There is some bready malt on the backend. Finishes sweet.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks smooth and rather easy.

O: A pretty good beer. Hoppier than others in the style I have had. Probably not something I would go to all the time, but could see it being nice on a hot day or paired with a salad actually.
