4.95/5  rDev +23.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Cloudy orange color with a small amount of head that dissipated after a bit.

Smell: Citrus smell is the strongest smell but a bit of a bread like smell under it. A hint of a sour note on the nose as well.

Taste: Wonderful. This is one of the best tasting beers I've had to date. It has a nice citrus flavor well balanced by the wheat flavor. A little sweet, but still has a bit of hop flavor as well. Aftertaste is a nice bread like flavor.

Mouthfeel: A bit thick leaving the mouth slightly dry. Very nice.

Overall: From the moment I began pouring this into my glass to the very end of the glass, this was the best overall beer I've had to date. Highly recommend to anyone that likes a good wheat beer (my favorite style).

4.8/5  rDev +20%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours a hazed honey/apricot color with 2 fingers of ivory head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Cloves, breadyness & phenolic notes

T: Sweet breadyness, figs & apricots mix with green apple peels & green banana, plus cloves up front. Slight smokeyness, more green banana & cloves once this warms, a touch of boozeyness nixes with juicy fruit, plus white pepper. Finishes fruitty, juicy & with nice banana peel notes

MF: Medium bodied,carbonation is subtle & really pushes the flavor

Super example of the style, I really can't find any fault at all this, great quencher n another 100 degree day!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

330ml into a stein.

A-Beautiful cloudy burnt orange with a 2cm white head, fading quickly.

S-Strong ripe banana and bubblegum.

T-Very sweet, candy rich, and heavy almost syrupy but enough carbonation to keep it from cloying. Dense and moist like banana bread, with a hint of bitterness that was similar to unripe fruit, but this provided a nice complement to the banana/gum sweetness.

M-Extremely creamy, almost like drinking a milk stout on nitro. Velvet.

O-An amazingly rich and warming beer.

4.7/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours an opaque hazy orange with a thin skim of white bubbles.

S: wheat, caramel and toffee. Banana bread and mild green apples.

T: more biscuit and banana bread than the nose but basically the same. Caramel and honey right off the bat. The fruits and spices come in fast and strong but the new honey taste lingers throughout and hangs on the tongue.

MF: full flavor and medium body with great effervescence and sweetness.

O: great weizenbock!!! I would buy sixers if not twelve packs of this only.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a flute glass. Thick white head, cloudy orangish hue with some lacing and a pencil thin that maintains after the initial larger head fades. The smell is delicious. Banana, clove, some taffy (banana taffy). Smells amazing. The taste is off bannana cloves, spices, hops. the mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth. Overall, i love this beer. Man i wish this was year round and in six packs.

4.55/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Very cloudy golden color with a massive white head that had excellant retention. Huge chunks of lacing is left on the glass.

The aroma is thick with yeasty esters. Heavy with banana and clove aromas.

One of the better tasting weizenbocks around. I would have to have this side by side with an Aventinus and see how this truely compares. The yeast really did their work. Flavors of bananas and bubble gum. A little alcohol warmth in the finish.

Soft, creamy texture with a larger than typical body for a wheat beer. Perfectly carbonated. Do not know how it could get better.

Did not expect much from this beer since I have not been impressed with Sierra Nevada's previous wheat beers. But this one could be one of the best ever crafted.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

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.

Review from 5/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip.
Pours a very cloudy orange amber. Thin white head, but nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, wheat , clove and light citrus. Sweet caramel malt, citrus, wheat. Everything comes together for a pleasant flavor combination and finish. Somewhat complex flavor. This is an excellent wheat beer. It leans more towards a hefeweizen to my taste, but really enjoyed it and I'm not going to argue.
