Poured from a 650ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper orange colour. The nose has some really nice sweet floral and honey notes typical of the style. Taste also has a good sweetness to it with flavours of marzipan and fruit. There is a notable bitter finish which provides a pleasant balance to the sweetness. This is a nontraditional take on the style, but a successful one.

Well, the name isn't very creative, but can't say that for the brew itself.

Light bubbles, not sweet, with a very clean finish. Delicious malts with a bitterness ... Not like grapefruit bitter ... more mild at first... but then you get that other kind of bitter in the aftertaste. Cool. I'm biased towards Bocks so I'm obviously liking this stuff. Carbonation is spot on.
