Purchased from the Charleston Beer Exchange, cheers!
A - Pours a nice cloudy golden straw color into my tulip glass with ~ 1.5 fingers of thick fluffy head that has moderate retention and splotchy lacing.
S - The aroma is exceptional. Lots of banana, clove, lemon and spice.
T - Bananas, lemon and spice come through immediately. very well rounded tastes
M - Smooth and creamy a great Weizenbock
O - Overall this is one of my favorite Weizenbocks (which I am not normally crazy about) - I would certainly encourage those of you who like this style to try this SN creation

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.
