Beer Camp: Weizenbock
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a tall Yuengling glass
Pours a hazy and murky orange/yellow blend. Nice fluffy white head forms on top.
Whiffs of freshly baked banana nut bread and unique yeast funk.
A dry wheat quality with some syrupy sweetness. Flavors of bubblegum, prime banana, raw sugar and caramel. Sierra Nevada does a nice job here with that funky yeast quality to a nice Weizenbock. The 6.8% ABV is very well hidden. SN does a good job with the style, the flavors are spot-on.

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.
