3.53/5 rDev +6%
Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with amber hues and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some spices. Taste is malty, bready, alcohol is present, a bit of mild spice. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

16 oz pint glass
A: Pours deep brown/red with little or no head. A thin film of bubbles around the edge grants an appearance of dilute motor oil. No bubbles apparent throughout the beer.
S: Smells sweet apple, molasses and roasted malt. Slight spice of hops, but very faint.
T: Almost spit this one out the sourness is so overwhelming. Tastes less of a beer and more of an apple cider. Whew. Tough for me to get past the mouth pucker. Actually I can't. This is a terrible beer with a certain harshness in the taste.
M: This is a very thick beer with miniscule carbonation. Very tough to drink. Gross.
O: For me there is no redeeming quality in this beer. It is cold for once in Florida and I should have gotten Old Rasputin. Tried something new and immediately regret it. This is an awful beer.

Pours a murky honey orange with a 1 inch foamy beige head that settles to a thin cap. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is very malty with caramel/toffee and apple aromas. Taste is much the same and like others have mentioned there is an apple cider flavor in this one. There is a slight bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a medium body with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a decent beer for what it is but not something I would get again.

Pours a dirtied white head, which spreads to a crowning around the top pretty quickly. Color is really nice, a reddish copper color with some haze but also sparkles like hard candy.
Good smell, a balanced mingling of musty red apples, toffee, cherry pipe tobacco and a pinch of alcohol. Autumnal and welcoming.
High hopes for the flavor, based on the nice look and smell, but no, this is not a great Weizenbock. An oddly flat sort of taste, papery kind of, although not really exhibiting the usual oxidation flavor/feel. Apple cider is the prevailing flavor, and it comes with a sourness that is not appreciated. Something somewhere between gingerbread and sweet carrot cake is here too, but geez, without a solid, quality base, it has no chance to impress. Puckery finish. Pretty good feel, soft and smooth with decent but not overbearing carbonation.
Not the best Weizenbock experience out there, not by a long shot. I guess bombers for $3.99 are too good a thing to be true, unless they're totally local, and this one definitely is not. Oh well.

Bomber poured into a weizen glass. Amberish brown with all sorts of chunky stuff floating in the haze. Modest off-white head, modest lacing.
Nose is pleasant enough, although a fairly tame combo of caramel, tangy wheat and whiffs of raisin. Tastes more or less as advertised, but with more oomph, thanks in no small part to a nice fluffy feel. Small-bubbled carbonation is right on target. Modest spicy and banana bread notes in the finish. Not bad at all, but a fairly pedestrian take on the style.

When I first tasted this beer I thought I was onto something special, but as it warmed some flavors showed up that I didn't like as much.
A: nothing special.
S- great boozy caramel smell.
T- very malty, but as it warms more hops creeps in. Maybe too much hops.
M- good coats the mouth just right.
Overall, I think its a good value. So I think I will get this one again.
