A- Completely opaque hazy golden brown. Large light brown/cream colored head.
A- Very wheaty malt aroma. Spicy cloves and bananas dominate.
T- Wheaty flavor. Tastes like a field of wheat in your mouth. Clove and banana, as it warms it has less and less of a spiciness. Crisp finish.
M- Medium-full bodied; smooth, but with a spiciness. Moderate carbonation.
D- This is a great Weizenbock and one of my favorite beers in the beer camp collection. Check it 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.
