Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.
The color is a cloudy orange/yellow with a finger or two of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is orange peel with some malty sweetness that seems a little dark for some reason. Some banana aroma is coming out in the nose as well with a sweetness cotton candy-like aroma.
The taste is sweet like a wit-beer with some fruity flavor that seems to push fast from the first sip. Banana, some cherry and a little strawberry come out on that first sip. There is a nice ripe fruit flavor all through this beer with some bitterness hitting toward the end. There is a dark malt feel in the background of this beer, like an adult watching the kids play and only getting involved when things get out of hand.
The feel of this beer is a little bigger then expected, there is a sweet touch at first then there is a bit of an elephant in the room as there seems to be two beers in one here. A sweet light beer then a heavy malty beer hanging in the back.

Weizenbock is definitely one of the most unheralded and underrated styles out there that lends itself to higher alcohol wheat beers that burst with flavor. Sierra Nevada didn't hit the mark on this one - bland and watered down and lacking any sort of cohesiveness. The yeast profile just needs to be much tighter than this - some clove, peppercorn, sweet bread struggle to stick out. Very disapointing.

review entered from notes taken awhile back...
a: poured into a weizen glass, after rousing the yeast, the beer pours a hazy amber the color of dark honey, nice fill, white head that retains as a good layer
s: full malt aroma with a slew of dark breads and lightly toasted sugars, lots of wheat and sweet fruits, huge yeast influence - sweet/spicy clove and lovely overripe banana, bready, herbal noble hops, richly complex and aromatic
m: carbonation around light-moderate, medium bodied
t: a delicious weizenbock - the sweet and bready malt base holds flavors of toasted sugar and grain, heavily yeasted with deeply ripened banana flavors and lots of clove, starts sweet and slowly works towards a finish of grassy noble malts, clove, banana, and more yeast - lingering long, juicy fresh banana bread with a heavily toasted crust
o: a very well crafted example - one of the better stateside samples I've had alongside Victory Moonglow, among others, the best of the beer camp mix
