Impression: Unlike most Franconian breweries, Held-Bräu’s autumn Bock is of the wheat variety. I’ll have to admit, I was disappointed to not find a dark Bock in a place noted for their Dunkles but ordered it just the same as it was a seasonal and on tap. I was glad I had as it was nicely and a bit unusually a hopped one. Some of the lighter Weizenbocks can be a bit sweet and the addition of hops made for a more well-rounded and easier drinking beer. From what I gather, they have another Bock for lent but can’t sort out if it’s a dark one. I guess I’ll just have to go and find out.
