Appearance: Pours a pretty hazy straw color with light carbonation. About 3/4" of off-white head forms, very little retention and no lacing.
Smell: Smells awesome. Lots of fruity (citrusy) esters, overripe banana, and a touch of clove. Not a ton of complexity, but it is extremely aromatic. Extremely nice.
Taste: Wheat malts, overripe banana, some clove and other spices. Lots of cirtusy esters on the back end. A bit sweet and sugary on the finish, or I would rate this even higher.
Mouthfeel/Overall: A touch under medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy. This was hands down my favorite in the Beer Camp pack. I was very impressed. Wish SN would make this full time. I would certainly buy plenty of it.
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.
