look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Very hazy golden brown color, decent white head that dissipates quick leaving some lacing
Smell: Spice, fruits, bread, malts
Taste: Fruit and spice, spicier and less fruity than I'm used to for wheat beers. Bready malty, wheaty flavor in there.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, high carbonation
Overall: Good but not as good as some German Weizenbocks I've had.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: on-tap
