3.36/5  rDev -12.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from growler into a Carlsburg Weizen glass.

Murky straw with about a finger of white head.

Honey, straw, wheat and yeast make up the aroma.

A little bit of booze, more bitter than a normal weizen, I guess that’s the bock speaking up.

Crisp and clean, very drinkable. Just a bit of an aftertaste.

Very satisfying, but not an extraordinary weizen.

Serving type: growler

eyes...
high sizzle in my fizzle, audible white bubbles crackle into nothingness in the matter of some moments, gurgling pools of carbonation appear on the now clear surface, slightly orange tone and easy to read the through, that is pretty much all of that...

nose...
spicy alcohol, coriander, some juicy fruit tone, banana tone... pretty on for the style

taste etc...
much like the odor... fruity flavors with a bit of yeast/spice, lots of lively carbonation as a distraction for the heavy ABV, medium body that wants to sway heavy... but manages to stay rather light, the alcohol can be distracting at times flavor wise... the flavor is pretty consistent, nothing huge, nothing bad, it drinks pretty easily considering the ABV weight, definite stomach warming on this.

verdict?
this will punch you and you might barely notice, supremely nice mouthfeel but overall a bit lacking in character in terms of "wow" factor (love those catch phrases yo... word)

music @ now : solution .45

bomber, Liquor Depot, Rock Springs, WY

a: bomber poured roughly into a stubby chalice, a short head quickly falls to only a thin layer, the beer itself a slightly clouded honey amber in color

s: caramel malt sweetness on a full wheat body, bavarian yeast brings heavy notes of clove and intense banana, big bubblegum, a variety of candied fruits, grassy citrus hops

m: carbonation on the higher end of the medium range, prickly on the tongue, body medium with some slick sugars

t: body loaded with wheat and a hefty dose of caramel malts, sugars run through the midpoint, lots of ripe banana and clove that lingers well into the finish, grassy hop flavors, heavy on the yeast output throughout, some alcohol, long finish

o: a nice enough doppel weizen, satisfying malt structure, aromatic clove and banana, well structured, like this
