look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance- Hazy golden orange color with a frothy finger of white foam, faded fairly quick. Average appearance.
Smell- Yeasty banana and clove. A little lemon and a subtle tart green apple too.
Taste- Wow, tons of banana, like a shit load of banana! Some wheat, obviously, and slightly bready. Like biting into some fresh baked banana bread. Somewhat spicy, notes of clove, subtle bubblegum, seems like pretty decent yeast strain they are using here. There is a hint of lemon and that tart green apple again on the finish.
Mouthfeel- Incredibly creamy and smooth. I am going to have to give this a perfect 5!
Overall- This is the highlight of the beer camp mixer for me. Call me crazy, but to me this is on par with the best that are coming out of Germany, I love this beer. I wish they would sell this in six packs. Move over coffee stouts, this would be an incredible breakfast beer, paired with some Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

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.
