Emerging from springtime’s fertile ground, Cultivator celebrates the start of hop-growing season as sprawling fields of hop rhizomes climb and tether to hop bines. This spring bock delivers hints of toasted grains, fresh baked bread and delicate floral hops. #1 of 4 in our Hop Cycle seasonal series.

I haven't seen this in a while, and too bad, I think it's the best Heller bock brewed in the US.

Pours a nice, deep golden color. Nice head that lasts, and the aroma reminds you of freshly baked bread and honey.. delightful!
Nice medium body, not too heavy. Tastes just like it smells, only with some additional citrus flavors in the background.

I'd love to see this beer again, but haven't been able to find it in about two years. C'mon Troeg's, if you stopped making it, make it again!!

On tap at the brewery. A style I'm a novice in, but it looks good, smells sweet and malty with a major caramel and grainy nose. Flavor is fruit initially but then turns malty, with caramel, wheat bread, buttered biscuit, floral notes, fresh cut grass and some peppery spices. Smooth overall with a little hint of booze, it's malty but light enough to drink on the patio at the brewery.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange color with no head nor lacing. I figured it was a bar pour so I’m not too worried. The smell had a big malty sweet corn, bready / biscuity goodness to it. The taste was mainly sweet and bready. Light bready to slight corn aftertaste that ran into a light sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was fairly smooth and good. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Maibock / Heller, if anything, definitely one to put with food.

Look- crystal clear, deep golden brown with a white head and rings of lacing

Aroma- bready malt and floral hops

Taste- super rich bready malt with toffee-like sweetness mixed in, along with full tasting floral hops and some slightly fruity (berry?) hop notes

feel- medium bodied and carbed with a long mildly bitter finish

Overall- exceptional helles bock with a great balance of rich malt and floral hops

I've had this before from a bottle and enjoyed it, but wasn't overly impressed. However, I recently had it on draft and was blown away by the subtle complexity of taste and full mouthfeel. 20oz wasn't enough!
