Beer Camp #37 2011. Poured into a tumbler
A: Poured a hazy light gold color with about 2 fingers worth of beige colored head that dissipates to a nice ring, no lacing left behind. Small carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass.
S: Nose is mainly light fruits, bananas, some cloves, and a hint of phenols.
T: Taste is earthy, has some nice bready notes, some spices and great sweet balance from the malts.
M: Light/medium bodied, good coating of the mouth, small grainy finish. Overall a nice beer that opens up as it warms. Has some Belgium qualities with hefeweizen notes as well.
Serving type: bottle

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
