a: Murky, muddy, ruddy brown; served to me with a small cap of foam.

s: Stewed banana, cloves, toffee, a bit of cocoa, and a hint of dark fruit. Just a trace of heat.

t: All of the above in near perfect harmony. A little sweeter than I'm used to but it worked well.

m: Big and chewy.

o: DAMN good, top 3 or 4 weizenbocks for me. Sad I could only have one.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark mahogany with some red tones. Dense head of a buttermilk color. Looks wheaty and thick and gulpalicious. Thick whisps of ring lace.

Banana nut, bubble gum, dark wheat, some toast, some dried fruit sweetness, yeast, German maltiness out the wazoo.

Banana, phenolic mix, yeasty nuttiness, toastiness, rum raisin, sweet booze, medicinal hops, bread, and a hint of juniper berry. Good stuff. Authentically German. A little heady. Very malty and wheaty. No more bubble gum, as was noticed in the nose. Medium-thick body and sweetness with a lot of wet gulp bite. Carbonation is much more relaxed, accentuating a knockout body.

Local weizenbock, for the win. May order another in the next five minutes...
