On-tap at De Prael Proeflokaal, Amaterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that died down, leaving a thin collar around the. Edge of the glass and some patches of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light aromas of apples and dark fruits are present in the nose. Candi sugar becomes noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is quite fruity and a little sweet having flavors of apples and Belgian yeast along with slight hints of bitterness. It becomes a little sweeter as it warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is unlike German maibocks and isn't spicy at all, having more of a semblance to a dubbel. It is quite easy to drink and doesn't have any alcohol in the taste.

A: Tea brownish orange, minature column of rising carbonation and not much of a head either. Hazy with tons of microsediment.
S: Dutch style bock smell, a smooth version of the German, yeasty punch, hints of honey, caramel.
T: Borders on a being a hefeweizen. Definitely a cross species between a light bock and a hefe. Slight bitterness, but sweet-ish. Mild and pleasant. Orange marmalade.
M: Medium body, soft with very light carbonation.
O: Nice balance, but mild.

Got this beer from a far relative who works at this brewerie. Poured the beer in a normal beerglass where i drink the 'witbeers' in.

The beer has a honeylike colour and the head is also a bit lightbrown to yellow. The head starts very nice, in a few minutes there is a small lacing.

You can smell the caramelmout they have used, All and all a very nice and tastefull beer. I will have to try this one under the summersun.

BB 4-07. Nice and very persistant head due to high carbonisation level and a bronze and foggy beercolor. Fresh and fine smell with slight bretty arome, fine malts with caramellic note, slightly green from hops and fine yeast ester make it have a nice and flowery springmose. Nice taste also that's medium bodied, nice and strong alcoholtouch, rich maltyness and moderate to low hoppiness. Maybe missing a bit of extra bitterness but further IMO a very balanced and fresh brew and one of the better springbocks I now as it runs down very easily too.
