Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Hefeweizen

Rittmayer Hallerndorfer Hefeweizen is a serviceable if somewhat bland example of the style.

Rittmayer Maibock

Rittmayer Maibock is one of the drier Hellerbocks I've come across. The combination of rich malt and obvious hops is something I wish more breweries would attempt. This is my favorite of the Rittmayer line-up.

Hebendanz Bock

Hebendanz Bock is a richly malty deep golden Bock which is oddly only 6.1%.

Distelhäuser Hellerbock

Distelhäuser Hellerbock is a potent 7.5% Bock to celebrate spring. It uses a variety of both aroma and bittering hops for a complex plate and lingering, semi-dry finish.

Zur Sonne Weihnachtsbock

Zur Sonne Weihnachtsbock is a richly malty balanced Hellerbock with refreshingly fruity palate and moreish semi-dry finish.

Klosterbräu Bock

Klosterbräu Bock is a balanced Hellerbock with a semi-dry palate and lingering finish. Deceptive at 7%.

Wiethaler Bockbier Hell

Wiethaler Bockbier Hell is a richly malty Bock at 6.4% with a slightly sticky finish.

Mahrs Bräu Maibock

Mahrs Bräu Maibock is unfiltered golden Bock with floral hops in both the nose and palate. The lingering finish is semi-dry and bittersweet.

Trunk Nothelfer Silber Bock

Trunk Nothelfer Silber Bock is a good example of a balanced Hellerbock with a rich malt base and fine underlying hops making the finish semi-dry and somewhat bitter.

Grasser Kathrein Bock (bottle)

Grasser Kathrein Bock is a marvelous Hellerbock from the Franconian brewing legend in Huppendorf. It's a great mix of rich malt and fine hops with a dry bittersweet finish. It's dangerously drinkable at 7.5%.
