#331 Flensburger – Winterbock

Name: Winterbock
Brewery: Flensburger (Flensburg, Germany)
Style: Heller Bock
Source: Victoria Park New World
ABV: 7%

I know I promised never to inflict any of my horrible haikus on the internet again, but I just wrote this really long boring post which I realised would be better expressed in just 17 words:

Why why why why why, 
Would you call it winterbock?
It’s not even dark. 

Grainy malt, sugar
Alcohol that burns my throat
Fooled by cute bottle.

Not exactly Bashuo Matsuo (and sure, I admit I Googled “famous Haiku poets”), but at least it was quick and painless!

  1. I too was fooled by the pretty bottle and the idea of a winter bock. At least I can use the pretty bottle for my homebrew 🙂
