This is a tasty bock that leans towards a Maibock.

22 ounce.

Pours a clear brownish golden with a sudsy white head, dissipates to a lacing.

Smells of honey and banana esters as well as a bit of citrus and some grassy malts.

Tastes of crisp grassy malts with a mellow honey and banana fruit sweetness.

Medium body with tingly carbonation throughout.

Very nice and tasty weizenbock, lots of good flavor in this one and goes down very easy. Definitely worth trying this one and I hope to have it again.

As a big fan of the weizenbock style I was pleased to see them available from local brewers. Poured a cloudy medium brown with a moderate head. Aroma of caramel and bananas with some ripe fruit. Taste was fruit and spice with a pleasant bitter hop finish. Very smooth and drinkable. Not as balanced or explosive as the Bavarian originals which I love, but an interesting US version which I would buy on a regular basis.

a: This was a murky dark brown color. It was served to me with a small frothy cap.

s: On the mild side, I found bready bananas with hints of chocolate.

t: All the right elements are here, just not enough of them. Sweet caramelized bananas with some cocoa and a little spice.

m: A bit thin for the style, kind of watery.

o: Not bad, but there are better weizenbocks to be had.

This beer poured out as a muddy looking brown color with a thin white head on top. The retention and lacing are minimal. The smell of the beer gives off the yeasty bread aromas along with the mixture of clove and banana. The taste of the beer is similar to the smell, the clove and banana with a touch of cirtus and wheat bread all blend together. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a decent carbonation. Overall it's a good attempt of the style in my opinion. I feel there are better choices out there but this one isn't terrible.
