Pours hazy rust color with 1/2 inch of khaki head that fades to nothing and leaves very faint lace.
Smell is of funky yeast, caramel and a fruity mixture of banana and apple.
Taste is of bready malt, molasses, caramel, banana, apple and a hint of cinnamon and clove spiciness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.
This is a solid effort that has characteristics similar to those of a Belgian quad with the addition of winter spices reminiscent of a Christmas ale.

A. Pours a deep ruby brown with a beautiful two finger khaki colored head. Retention is outstanding with a big creamy ring of froth lasting through the session. Each swirl builds the foam back up. Lacing is equally thick and coating.
S. Freshly baked bread, orange zest, pumpernickel, lots of cherry and fig, brown sugar, molasses, and even some red wine.
T. Hearty bread crust, stone fruit, hints of chocolate, clove, banana, pear. Very malty and complex.
M. Low to moderate carb with a wonderfully complex flavor profile. It's big and it's sweet, but the alcohol is very well hidden and it has a great balance.
O. It's not particularly distinctive other than its all around excellence. It's a beautifully done weizenbock and hits every note in high form. It's a rounded yet complex example of the style, with bright fruit, phenol, and banana notes and a toasty malt bill. Very very enjoyable, and a cool experiment by the Bruery in revisiting Patrick's homebrew recipes. Would love to see what other things they can recreate from his cookbook.
