Pours foam like a Hefe. The Head sticks around for a while.
The first sip was fruity, Lots of CO2. In the next sip I only tasted the sweetness of the 8.5%.
Not really a beer. Too much alcohol. Very hard to drink. Makes you sleepy due to the high ABV.
Overrated and overpriced.
I rather drink a Spaten Optimator if I want a bock beer.

Haze golden, white head with good retention. Aroma: fruity, spicy, earthy and maltiness. In the taste fruity, and earthy. More bitter than others bgsa, really good beer, doesn't have the same equilibrium than others of the same style, but a really nice experience
