This was the second beer of our Snobs United Tasting.
It poured a murky, dirty medium brown with a small foamy head. Surprisingly not too big of a head on this one.
Nose is really spicy, cloves, nutmeg and the sort with some chocolate and starch fruit such as plantain and banana.
Taste pretty similar to Aventinus. Far form being as perfect as Aventinus, but still lots of good flavors. Chocolate, banana, cloves, a heavy dose of wheaty malts and some nice yeast to support the flavor and the body. Medium bodies with a nice creamy carbonation and a decent amount of sediment.
Good job Mr. Rue
This is why we love you so much!!!

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.
