A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of sweet, bready malts along with notes of grassy hops, the latter of which contributes a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This maibock has a nice body to it that coats your mouth a little and leaves you with somewhat of a filling feeling.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into pilsner.
A: Pours a clear under ripe banana yellow with very high carbonation producing a 3 inch bubbly white head that quickly dies down to a skim that continues to be fed by the carbonation jets.
S: Toasted cracker pilsner malt, grassy herbs, and a hint of citrus zest.
T: Follows aroma fairly closely. Hint of honey and bready malt too.
M: Light-medium body. Soft and oily feel. A bit of a carbonation prickle. ABV is well hidden.
D: Light and refreshing. Easily drinkable. Nice spring brew. Decent complexity, especially for style.

Poured from a 750ml corked/caged bottle into an imperial nonic glass, this beer presents itself as as a highly effervescent barely hazed golden yellow crowned by a mounding fluffy dense foam. Looks great.

Aroma is very sweet and fruity - pears, bananas, peaches. There is also some bread dough, grassy hops, and Belgian yeast.

Flavors back up the aromas - fresh sweet fruits, nice sweet malty foundation, fresh cut grass, candy sugars.

Feel is medium body with plenty of carb.

Glad I had a chance to try a beer from this brewer which I doubt I will see for a long time if ever. Would love to try more.

Poured from a cork and cage into a weisse vase, the beer is a bright, vibrant maize gold coloring with a ton of carbonation throughout the body. A ton of carbonation, in a furious flow up the glass, constantly feeding a bubbly, white head that doesn't appear to be going anywhere. Aromas of toasted grains, subtle hints of honey and caramel, floral highlights, and a subtle hops bitterness. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, almost sugary to start, with a rich honey and extremely bitter vegetal/grassy blend, which lays on top of a bready and heavy backbone. You get layers more along the Belgian line, with heavy banana and a blend of clove and nutmeg spicing. This is a big beer, despite the lower ABV and abundance of carbonation. The aftertaste is more of the richly sweet and heavy fruit and bread notes, leading into a smooth, crisp, clean finish. This is a tasty beer. Give the carbonation time to settle out and you will see the drinkability increase greatly, as well as the layers of flavor develop for you.

From a 750ml bottle.

App: bright yellow straw color, slightly hazy with a thick, creamy, bright white head and leaving some nice lacing around the glass.

Smell: Freshly baked bread, biscuit, cracker, malt sweetness, suddle fruity yeastyness, grass and hay.

Taste: very bready, malty with an herbal and grassy hop finale and residual sweetness from the malt without being cloying at all and remaining somewhat clean and crisp. It is very well balanced. Edit: The last glass really brings out alot of the bananas, cloves and pepper from the yeast settling at the bottom which i wasnt getting as much from the first glass, adding complexity to the beer. Very well done.

Reminiscent of the lager you might have had with your dad back in the day but 10 times better, tastier and more complex. A great example of how good a lager beer can be. It kinda reconciled me with the style. I wish i would see more local craft brewers do good lagers like this. This is a perfect intro beer for people new to craft beer and will please beer connoisseur aswell. I will buy again. Highly recommanded. 8.3/10 (overall) - 9.5/10 (lager)

Clear yellow in appearance. One finger of head with good retention. Some mild noble hop aroma coupled with honey like malt grace the nose. Sweet on the palate. Once again honey comes to mind. No real off flavors and pretty clean although alcohol is slightly noticeable. Well crafted quality product.

A:
Pours a hazy goldenrod with two and a half fingers of frothy, pristine white head that settles like a rock at half an inch or so. Very good retention; some light lacing.

S:
Floral bread aromas. Warm dough left to rise, clover, banana, cereal malt smells, some grassy hops.

T:
Bready and rich. Cereals, doughy yeast, soft grain flavors, some dying/medicinal hops at the end.

M:
Medium bodied but quite refreshing and drinkable. Lingering finish with slight aftertaste.

O:
Pretty good beer.
I have never had a Maiboc before but this one was tasty. Pours pretty and has a kind of European nose and taste. I feel like it could have a little more oomph in the taste department, but you can tell it's a well-made lager regardless. Pretty tasty, maybe a good craft beer for hooking the AAL crowd.
Probably would opt for one of their other beers; same if I was looking to try this.
