Pours an almost opaque murky brown with a 1/2 inch khaki head that fades to an oily film. Small dots of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, cocoa, and some cinnamon spice notes. Taste is surprisingly sour (I think there may be an issue going on with this beer). I am getting some malt, sour fruits, and weird spice flavors on the finish. This beer has a higher level of carbonation which makes the sourness somewhat worse. Overall, this is a pretty bad beer and I am pretty sure that I got a bad bottle.

Grabbed this beer as part of a tremendous winter haul from Total Wines. What a disappointment. Served in a Forst beer glass.

Pours dark ruby and brown with nice bright white head that fills a minimum of two fingers. Good first impression. Nose is heavy on sugar with some light sourness that is somewhat inexplicable. I get some wheat and perhaps some citrus in there as well.

Taste is painfully sour, nothing like the weizenbock is meant to be - and certainly not malty as its look would suggest. Drinks very dryly, it covers the mouth completely. Some light citrus, seemingly orange, adds some flavor to this sour beer. Almost as if this went bad - I might even have to grab another one based on the other reviews.

Altogether a heavily disappointing beer, I couldnt even finish the last couple ounces.

Pours a dark brown body with a small tan head with decent retention. Aromas are predominantly of chocolate, with a bit of cold coffee and a hint of something being off. The taste is overwhelmingly sour and not enjoyable. Whatever notes of cocoa and spice this beer might possess are completely ruined by the green apple tartness. Reading the reviews below, I see I'm not alone in thinking this is a strange beer, and not in a good way.

Poured into a Guinness pint and the brew is a medium dark brown and hazy and has a 1 finger off tan head that clears fairly quickly and leaves a minimal hit and miss light lacing.

The aroma is malted grains with a hint of wheat.

The flavor follows the nose wih the addition of some unpleasant sourness, especially for a Weizenbock.

Not picking up any dark fruit and the malt profile is one dimensional.

Medium mouth feel and carbination makes the sourness stand out more. In my opinion, this is drinkable, but that's about it. A C brew for me.

Dark brown with medium tan head with okay retention and no real lacing. Strangely sharp hop aroma. Molasses and pronounced citrus peel with light toffee and caramel sweetness finishing lightly medicinal. Smooth crisp feel with a slight mouthcoating.

Nice lager feel for a winter warmer but a little too much hop in the wrong places. Good but not one to search for too hard.

Picked up a single at Total Wine in late November for $1.79.

Beer poured a murky brown with a little head that dissapated quickly.

Nose is a hint of citrus and not much else.

Taste is sour with some hints of chocolate malts.

Mouthfeel is thin and not overly smooth.

Overall this is a very strange beer, the sourness of a southern bavarian dunkel weiss is crossed with a chocolate malt backbone. Not recommended.

Poured into 11oz. version of Imperial Pint glass. Poured just short of black color, with a tall deep tan head that dissipated quickly leaving little to no lacing. Slight biscuity aroma. Flavor delivers a gentle spice flavor with the malty base. Full, pleasing body as is usual for the style. Nicely drinkable. I would drink this on tap at the local. Another good job from a solid, but not spectacular brewery.

pour is a cloudy brown with a tint of ruby, thin beige head that dissipates quickly, better than average lacing.

smell is of spice, roasted malt, sweet cocoa, hint of coffee, some caramel, and a little bit of dark fruit.

taste is creamy, spice, milk chocolate, a little coffee, malt, toasted nuts, a little caramel, and way in the back sits a prune.

Supposedly an Imperial Weizen bock.

A: Deep amber/copper with an off-white head, some retention & lace.

S: Big bubblegum fruitiness, with some grassy & floral hops. Intriguing but different.

T: Very fruity and hoppy. Lots of bubblegum, banana and mango along with grassy, floral and slightly steelie hopping. Underlying sweet maltiness (caramel, sponge toffee, hints of bread).

M: Moderate body is smooth with a slight residual sweetness.

D: I really liked their Weizen bock, I though the hopping in this just seemed weird.

A 22oz bottle poured into a snifter.
Medium brown color, small tan head.
Caramel malt aroma, some sweet fruit. A bit of herbal hops.
Very malty taste, also some raisin/dark fruit. Piney hops at the finish.
Pretty thin in the mouth.
Nice enough beer, just not very special. Would not seek this one out again.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Tons of yeast floatin' about -- understandable given the style although a bit odd that they are suspended so much. A touch of spice and yeast in the nose.

Overall, nice roasted malt flavors with clove and a hint of bubble gum. A bit of carob and raisin lingers. Finish is decent, and carbonation seems enough to keep the flavors from cloying. Has a nice warming quality with the alcohol well-hidden.

Not bad but not great. Decent with meat, perhaps some braised smoked sausages.
