Poured into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Pours hazy golden with a thick eggshell colored head. The head dissipates at a moderate pace. The aroma reflects expected weizenbock notes. I get some of of those banana and clove smells along with the sweet and bready malt aromas. The taste follows the nose. The wheat and barley malt offer some bready sweetness and those banana and clove flavors come out as well. The 7% ABV is well-hidden in the flavor. I pick up some of that bubblegum flavor as well. There's some mild spiciness as well. The body is medium with high carbonation. The finish is smooth and clean. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent weizenbock.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours cloudy milky orange-brown body topped by thick, long lasting beige head that sets to a stable collar.
Aroma is a mixture of rich sweet bready wheat-malt, dark fruits , banana esters and clove-like phenols. I even pick up occasional bursts of bubble gum.
Flavor that more or less corresponds to the nose is faintly tart with spicy clove-like phenols and dark fruits wrapped in sweet malted wheat foundations.
Medium body seems lighter than actually is due to high, somewhat prickly carbonation, yet retains some sort of creaminess.

In short, a sweetish Weizenbock with well hidden alcohol. (500 ml, BB date 10-04-2012, into tulip.)

Poured from bottle into half liter Julius Echter vase.

A: Dense hazy amber with large head that dissipates pretty fast and leaves little lacing.

S: Slightly yeasty orange

T: Complex mixture of caramelized malty flavors, cloves and citrus. Very palatable.

M: Medium carbonation level very appropriate. Fairly low attenuation makes for pleasant viscosity.

Amber, hazy wheat beer appearance. Thich bubbles that quickly dissipate and leave little trace.

Fruity, herbal, and spicy aroma.

Get your skis shined up, grab a stick of juicy fruit! Pears, melons, and cirtus up front. It is yeast forward, with a maltiness coming in next. The taste is fruity, with cloves, and a touch of bitter in the aftertaste. Mine was a bit papery and might have been old, but I can't seem to decode the production date.

Mouthfeel is faintly astringent, a bit powdery, but a bit slippery for a beer this big.

$5.49 from Whole Foods. Saw lots of quasi-fresh Germans brews stocked & figured I should buy some or risk buying the exact same bottle a few months from now, ala New Beer.

Weiss glass. Murky honey gold color. Off white head, frozen solid. A good shake, anything less then a 75 degree tip won't make it move.

Smells of bitter greens, dense/crusty loaf, pungent anise, rind, & bubblegum.

Big banana & thick, starchy wheat. Heavy clove & brown sugar. Touch tannic. Bit of bubblegum & Honey Nut Cheerios. Lingering anise/yeast on the finish. Orange rind in there somewhere. Boozy. Flavorful, but heavy-handed.

Decently carbed, but still a heavy, heavy beer. Alcohol hides behind all that residual sugar. I feel every percentage point of that ABV. Warming.

Drinking a 500ml & still wanting a touch more, I feel is deserving, if not respectful. My stamina took a hit though. Price is okay if I figure I can get this for $4.50 from New Beer.

Deserves more attention.

A: The beer is cloudy yellowish brown in color and poured into a weizen glass with a two finger high off white head that settled down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles completely covering the surface. A high amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are moderate aromas of banana, bubble gum, clove and wheat in the nose.
T: The flavors in the taste are quite similar to those in the smell. It also has a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a high amount of carbonation.
D: This beer is rather easy to drink for the style because the alcohol is well masked from the taste.

Thanks for sharing 500 ml., Radek. Fruity yeast aroma. Bannana yeast smooth texture, lots of wheat, bannana taste. Nicely carbonated. More sweet than bitter, enjoyable but a little too bannana fruity for me. Medium yellow body and lots of alce and foam.

0.5l bottle. Pours a murky dark-orange color with a big, frothy off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is wheat, yeast, caramel malts, yeast, and banana. Flavor is caramel malts, wheat, bread, cloves, banana, and yeast. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium, creamy, lightly carbonated, and a little acidic. Good beer.

Pours hazy golden with large white head, almost identical in appearance to a typical weissbier. Nose has plenty of fresh yeasty/bready aromas with banana clove as well. On the palate the wheat component comes through for a soft malty profile together with the banana clove. A little bit of extra umph and alcohol warmth are noted at the finish.
