Impression: I’ve wanted to try the regular Dinkel Bock since first having their Lagerbier. On this visit, it was spring so wasn’t expecting to find it but they did have what seemed a one-off Roggenbock. I quite like Weizenbocks but have found the regular Roggenbiers I’ve had to be sweeter. Admittedly, I haven’t had many and there aren’t so many brewed. This one looked good but it wasn’t super flavorful and the signature bitterness of the brewery didn’t mingle so well with the sour aspect of the rye. A few days later, I had the regular Lagerbier at the actual brewery and the brewer mentioned the Roggenbock and asked if I’d like to try it. He gave me a small sample and it seemed much fresher and better. It’s possible the one at the brewery was sitting around. I didn’t see anyone else drinking it.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
