A - Pours a cloudy golden straw color into my snifter with almost two fingers of thick fluffy head that has moderate retention and splotchy lacing.
S - The aroma is just so delicious and inviting. Lots of banana, clove, and spice. Subtle hints of coriander, wheat and malt as well. It has an overall bubblegum aroma with little to no alcohol.
T - Bananas and spice right out of the gate for me. Clove, coriander, a bit peppery, bubblegum, some toasted malt, and wheat, just really well rounded and pleasing.
M - Relatively smooth and creamy, however the carbonation is a little on the bright side in my opinion.
O - Overall I am rather confident this is my favorite from the 2011 Beer Camp Sampler. Super tasty, smells great and is just awesome to drink.

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.
