look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Smooth, creamy taste, easy to drink with mild to medium body. Only a subtle after taste which is pleasant.

Cloudy, yellow-amber color. Formed good foamy head.

Compatible with multiple foods. The first I have had of this style. Look forward to trying others.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Press a murky, ruddy medium brown with a frothy cream head that lingers as a thin foam layer.

Banana, citrus, and clove dominate the aroma, with notes of toasted malt adding contrast. Bubblegum surfaces late.

Flavor reveals more citrus, with lemon tartness and orange rind underlying a wheat and lightly toasted malt base. Notes of caramel and toffee are overpowered by esters of bubblegum, banana, and clove. The finish is dry and fairly bitter.

Body is moderate, with carbonation a bit on the high side, and modest alcohol warmth.

I prefer a little less bitterness, but the esters are nice and complex. They definitely dominate. I think the bitterness in the finish almost makes the beer taste flat/stale. That's what kills it for me.

Poured from a growler into a stein. The beer is amber in color and very hazy (even unattractively so). Nevertheless, is well-carbonated and sports a nice 3 finger bloom that doesn't last quite as long as it should. The nose has some faint, but pleasant, bready aromas and some dark fruit. Smells like a traditional bock.

Medium body and a nice, rich malty flavor. I get a little of the wheat near the front and middle of the palate, a nice tart sensation, but mostly this beer is about the malt. There are lots of toffee and treacle flavors, some clove-like phenols, and a nice lemony wheat flavor to balance it out. No real hop character, just enough for spice.

I thought Sierra Nevada's take on this style might be an abomination. That is, that they might hop it to the gills. Fortunately, this is a very traditional interpretation. I like it a lot. It's sweet and malty and not too lemony. Bravo!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a finger of head on a cloudy brown colored body.
The aroma is caramel and apple cider. Interesting but good.
The taste is a mild bitter start with a late malt sweetness. Great balance.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Quite enjoyable.

On tap at Congregation Ale House in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with earth, caramel, banana, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell, but the flavors are more earthy than I was expecting.
