A bock from spring in winter?! Let me explain. Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock was bought in August but has been languishing at the bottom of the beer cellar and passed over for other beers. I don’t know why now and I’m kind of regretting now buying more. Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock was first brewed in 2004 to celebrate the birth of the Baird’s fourth daughter, hence Four Sisters. Genius! It weighs in at 7%, with Baird Beer Four Sisters Spring Bock taking the German Maibock style for its inspiration and was first released back in 2004.
Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock Aroma and Taste
Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock looked a dark copper colour and was very hazy. It was only when I looked at the bottom of the glass that I noticed a load of sediment at the bottom. My first thought was, “darn it, (imagine something harsher), I’d left it too long” and I thought Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock was going to turn out duff. Luckily, the aroma was thick with malt and a little bit of a sweet edge as well. Some alcohol lingered in the nose but nothing to worry about. Really.
With the sediment still floating around, it was time. Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock washed over the taste buds with the malt flavour being the first taste, followed up by a sweet, bitterness in the finish. Very creamy and frothy too but it was the bitter aftertaste that got me. It just seemed to linger on the palate long enough to be a welcome guest but not one that you want get rid of.
Baird Four Sisters Spring Bock One Line Review
