3.58/5  rDev -18.8%

A - Brown colored beer with a beige head that left some stick on the sides and faded to a decent cap and collar.

S - Lots of banana, clove, some wheat, spice.

T - Taste is just like the nose, with banana and clove, some wheat, and a touch of brown sugar and cocoa. I found the wheat to add a little bit of a lactic sourness on the end.

M - Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

O - Not as big of a fan of this as Alex. Solid, but likely something I would go out of the way for.

On-tap at Revolution. Ordered a 5oz sample of this one.

A - A finger of off-white foam settles to a thick collar and some wisps, leaving minimal lacing. Lightly hazed milk chocolate brown body.

S - Massive banana, light baker's chocolate, hint of toffee, and some cloves and wheat to spice things up. Extremely potent nose, but no obvious alcohol.

T - Taste is again a mixture of banana, caramel, cocoa powder, clove, and wheat. Not mind-blowing, but pretty much dead on for the style.

M - Medium body, zesty moderate-to-high carbonation level, grainy texture, and a bit of warming alcohol present.

D - A very well-executed Weizenbock. This isn't a style I find myself craving often, but this is definitely one of the best ones I've had. I suspect it would have been tough for me to put down a full glass, but as a 5oz post-dinner treat it was quite appropriate. Worth giving a chance, even if you're not a big German beer fan.
