Poured out of 12oz bottle into pint glass.
A) A very nice looking hazy orange with an inch of white head.
S) Wheat, banana, and some clove. It smells very nice.
T) Well done... A very nice combo of wheat and fruit sweetness. There is a bit of spice and the perfect amount of bitterness to the finish. It's a really nice finish. This one reminds me a bit of New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat.
M) A medium body, with an almost creamy quality to it. This is very pleasing to my palate.
O) This is a solid offering, and if it were available as a seasonal, I'd pick it up. IMO, this and the black juniper were the best in the beer camp pack.

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
