2011 bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada wide mouth pint glass
Dirty butter-orange-ish color, can't see through it at all. White head that sticks around for the whole beer, decent lace.
Smells like banana bread and spice
Taste like banana, hops, smoke, sour yeast and spice
Feels sharp at first, then chewy, then leaves a creamy coating on the tongue
Highly drinkable, I really like this one. I can and will drink more of this one. I would love to see it in constant production.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
