First beer from the summer pack, enjoyed on vacation.
A loud pop results in a slight spicy whiff of wheat and yeast.
Pours a lovely orange-tangerine color. Murky, cloudy yeasty, a thick rich head reaches the top of the glass and stays for several moments.
Smells amazing. Creamy, tart, spicy and sweet all interact together. Pepper, clove,apple, banana, mingle with creamy wheat, bread, lemon, musty yeast, tart and refined, rustic and traditional all in one smell.
Flavor is wonderful,. Sweet, spicy, rich and tart. Pepper, clove, banana, bread, yeast, apple, nutty and a light peppery hoppiness finish out the flavor.
This is nothing like any Sierra Nevada beer I have ever had.
This is a wonderful brew that gives Aventinus a run for its money

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.
