12 oz into a snifter...this is by far my favorite of the beer camp beers, really an awesome brew...big straw yellow cloudy body with generous head. Tons of nose of wheat and yeast funk...they nailed both the weizen and the bock, so to speak...I mean nailed it, it's great, with just enough noble hops to balance it and nothing more. It's very rare that I would say this about the aroma of an American edition of a German style, but it competes with the best Germans. Taste follows suit, with big wheat and fruity characteristics. Mouthfeel is robust, energetic and quite simply, flawless. Overall, try it if you find it. Great beer.

A- Poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow/orangish color with an off-white head with excellent lacing and retention qualities. Looks fantastic.

S- The aroma is fantastic! The aroma is sweet and malty with some spices (clove), banana, and yeast. There is no sign of alcohol in the nose whatsoever. Smells great!

T- The taste is equally as good as the aroma. The taste starts out with a lot of sweetness with some wheat and banana. The clove flavors come in next along with some yeast and a touch of warmth from the alcohol in the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Really nice!

O- Overall, this is a fantastic beer. I would love to see this one in the regular rotation from Sierra Nevada. Highly recommended!

Sexy appearance with creamy white head atop a deep dark golden cloudy body of weizenbock. Nose is a delight with loads of bready/yeasty aromas, along with some spices & citrus. Palate is quite creamy, yet not too heavy to loose drinkability. Gorgeous mingle of wheat, bready flavors, citrus, spice, and a zesty carbonation level that carries nicely through the finish.

Brewed in the lighter weizenbock way, similar to Vitus, compared to the more dunkel versions like Aventinus.

A must try.

Pours a beatiful clouded banana smoothie hue with a bright slightly off white head forming thick with creamy textured head. Fine speckled lacing with chunks mixed in the pattern. Labeled as The Best of Beer Camp: Weizenbock #37. Aroma has sharp wheat with banana bread and citrus notes arising strong. Flavor is everything I enjoy about kellerweiss with a bit more punch to it. Sharp citrus/wheat combonation with hints of spicy yeast/banana/clove esters coming forth this is a very satisfying wheat beer, I had not idea that Sierra Nevada were actually wheat beer pros that hid behind the the Sierra Nevada Wheat with the red label for years, which was a dull American Wheat without any yeast fireworks from the German versions. Mouthfeel is satisfyingly carbonated with enough texture and girth the keep any craft beer drinker happy, a touch of alcohol in the back end but it's well orchestrated within the context of different flavors offered from this beer. Overall damn quality Weizenbock that I wish more craftbrewers would perfect like this.

Pours a cloudy, hazy golden color. Firm foamy head dissipates to a thin white layer. A little lacing, but not much.

Smells of sweet bananas and cloves. Hints of sweetness in the background.

A wonderful banana and clove taste. A little citrus in the end. Some banana that lingers. Reminds me of a traditional German Hefe.

Mouthfeel is creamy up front. Full body, with carbonation that lingers in the end. A smooth delightful beer.

I love German Hefe's, and I wish I could get this beer year round!

Poured into Duvel tulip with a heavy white head that left some lacing.

Very hazy pour with plenty of yeast at the bottom.

Aroma of heavy overripe banana, cloves, white pepper, belgian yeast, and Bazooka original bubblegum.

Taste is great, nice and spicy with mild spices, strong banana and clove flavors and an unreal bubblegum flavor. This is by far the strongest "original bubblegum" flavored beer I have ever had and i would say this is the best beer in the mixed Beer camp package. There is a medium to thicker body for a weizenbock which is really done well. I would get this year round if they were to offer it.
