12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove/nuttiness, slight chocolate, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light clove/nuttiness, slight chocolate, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, banana, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good weizenbock style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

On tap at the Dragonmead Brew Pub.

Poured a deeper brown color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of some wheat, chocolate, and not too much more. Tastes of the same chocolate, wheat, with some cloves. I really didn't get any banana or fruitiness that I would have expected.

Poured a deep brownish black with chestnut edges, thin creamy tan head left some retention and some lacing. Smells of banana, clove, wheat, molasses, and citrus. Tastes of sweet caramel, bananas, bread, cinnamon, clove, and maple syrup with a slight alcohol warmth. Medium in body and low in carbonation, sweet and fruity with a tinge of alcohol in the back. I got this beer mainly because of the name, as my fiancee is named Nicole, and would have normally skipped this style when confronted with the other variety that Dragonmead offers, but it turned out to be very enjoyable.

Enjoyed at the brewpub. Cloudy, dark toffee colour with a light brown head. Fine bubbles formed sticky lacing on the glass. Crackery malt aroma with some banana, bread, toffee, and yeast. The same characters were present in the flavour, along with mild spice and low bitterness. Medium/full bodied with low carbonation and a pleasant texture. A nice drinking beer overall.
