They don't look any better than this: Cloudy golden in color with a big foamy head that doesn't vanish. Nice!
Big aroma of cloves and spices with a hint of green banana.
The taste is excellent: It's fruity, spicy and sweet with a complex flavor. It's like a hefeweizen pumped up a bit, but not too much. Of course, that's why it's a weizenbock.
A very nice, creamy and slick body.
I'm a hophead, but this beer shows you don't need lots of hops to make an excellent brew. There really isn't any room for improvement with this beer. Sierra Nevada puts the Germans on notice. Seek this -- and its Beer Camp brethren -- out.

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.
