Cool days draw us close to the warmth of home fires. This is the season to sip away the chill and embrace quiet evenings with friends and family. You hold a Wisconsin Style Honey Bock, easy going and more approachable than its traditional dark German cousin. Bock beers have existed in Wisconsin for over 150 years. This pale bock is brewed with an exclusive blend of Wisconsin two row barley that balances seamlessly with our special European hops. Naturally sweet Clover Honey was added in the kettle accenting warm flavor notes on your tongue. Whether you reminisce the passing summer sun or thrill to squeaky steps through drifting snow one thing is certain about winter in Wisconsin, this too shall pass.

    I had this beer at a German resturant in Milwaukee. A nice overall beer - the honey was there but I actually thought it was a little too much. In the end, a satisfying beer. I'd have it again for sure. New Glarus is tops.

    Pours a piss yellow with a one finger off white head that lofts a bit. Nice amount of carbonation. Aroma is very sweet with hints of honey, lemon, sweet malts and hops. Taste in itself reminds me of a lighter version of Leini's Honey Weisse but with a fuller body. Hints of honey and malts in the taste. Not what I had hoped for but alright.

    Just darker than straw color, very clear and effervescent. Aroma of grass and some stale malts, also that smell that honey gives to beer. Very nice mouthfeel with a good solid flavor. Not overpowering but completely drinkable and refreshing and leaving you wanting more. A sweet and malty bock that would go good just about anytime.

    Thanks to Wisconsin John for this brew!! .. Pours a deep yellow, glimmering really- great foam head, and lacing is crazy good .. . Are you challenging my constitutional right to make nude phone calls? .. . aroma of light wood, mr beer juice, and honey .. . pretty simplified, for the novice i guess- but for a bock, i did enjoy it .. .
    Have you ever heard the expression, 'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade and then toss it in the face of the person who gave you the lemons until they give you the oranges you asked for in the first place'?

    another via trade w pfoxyjohn...this is a good summer refresher that lets you know lighter fare does not have to be simple or boring. light and crisp, but with a little body and a lot of flavor. nice rich malt & hop balance with a kiss of honey in the finish. aroma is much of the same.

    Another gem from New Glarus and pfoxyjohn. Clear honey amber pour with a slight white head and a bit of lacing. Sweet honey and malty aroma with slight earthy hops detected. Taste is not overly sweet but the honey is very noticeable with an easy malt flavor and a kiss of hops. Super nice bock. Thanks John.

    Sooo glad I tried this before it ecscaped for the season. Really delightful. Bright orangeish golden with a creamy white top. Aroma is distinct, sweeter, yet hoppy. Palate has got some noticeable alcohol, but its balanced. Honey, apples and cinnamon with a delightful pie crust like finish. Fantastic :)

    What conveys survivability on fragile human beings through harsh winter? What gives meaning to often bitter and unforgiving life? Where else (how else) can one live, thrive, subsist? Why is cabin fever thought to be debilitating, depressing? Is it marked by restlessness, irritability, forgetfulness, uncontrollable laughter? Excessive sleeping, distrust of companions, urges to escape to the harsher outdoors? Why do I love this new beer? And why those songs, composed in a cabin, here in Wisconsin, in winter, in a fever, forever ago? “So apropos: saw death on a sunny snow…. For every life, forgo the parable…. Seek the light, my knees are cold…. Running home, running home, running home, running home..." The fullness of rich malt, lightness and flowery sweetness of honey, light, crisp cleanliness of finishing hops. “Balance we won't know, we will see when it gets warm.” MUSIC: “For Emma” & “Lump Sum” by Bon Iver
