22oz bottle from RDMII (thanks man). No bottling date but this was released quite recently. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours a murky, opaque deep brown with slight gold highlights and almost two full fingers of manilla head. Despite the fact that there is almost no retention whatsoever, there are a few spots of lace here and there.

Citrus zest and bannana bread dominate the aroma. They make room for other notes of clove, an almost cinnamon character and very faint cocoa.

Now this is not your momma's weizenbock. A strange semi-bitter floral rose flavor almost dominates. Cloves, bitter orange peel, bannana bread, mild chocolate and vague brandied raisins. A bizarre mixture for sure with almost no alcohol detected. The floral and rindy bitterness is almost too much by the end of the bottle.

The feel is on the lighter side of medium with fairly mild carbonation. Floral, citrus rind, clove and bannana finish.

An interesting experiment and departure from the style that ultimately didn't do it for me. Thin and overly bitter without near enough sweetness to balance.

Bomber poured into a heffe glass.

Pours a nice, rich amber color. Aggressive pour yielded an inch of head which settled fairly quickly into about a half inch head. Kinda off white, not quite a khaki color. Decent lacing.

Smells like a chocolate covered orange. A little bit of banana. the banana is not as prevalent as in other weizenbocks I've had. Not my favorite smell. Kind of an odd mix from the orange and banana.

Tastes like a chocolate covered banana. And as a wise man once said: "There's always money in the banana stand." And the taste of this beer is money. Not as much orange in the taste as there is on the nose. The orange-banana flavor mixes well on my palette. At least better than on the nose. Good maltiness as well.

Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated. Malt provides a medium creaminess to the body.

Overall a good beer. Good take on a weizenbock.

Appearance: a reddish brown color. one to two fingers of a tannish head that fades slowly and leaves a solid lacing. strong hazy makes it completely opaque and a fair amount of sediment that floats around and settles to the bottom.

Smell: german chocolate wheat malts, fruity mixture of orange and banana, and a slight german yeastiness

Taste: opens up with a weizenbock yeastiness, a kick of orange followed by a german yeast banana flavor. end is full of chocolatey wheat malts. no signs of alcohol but some fruity to clove-like esters

Mouthfeel: medium body. slightly dry but still refreshing.

Overall: a very tasty and pretty unique beer, lots of dark beer character, but still remains light and slightly refreshing. fully captures what it claims to be with good orange and chocolate flavor with the full effect of the weizenbbock. a great intro to the side project series for me.
