4.26/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

A 22oz bomber picked up at Greens on Buford Hwy. Terrapin Side Project #22

A- Amber red with no clarity. 1 finger of head, and yeast floating ALL over the brew. I either got a bottom of barrel bottle or its extremely unfiltered!

S - Orange peel dominates. Lots of citrus..

T - Fresh, easy to drink, hidden ABV. Orange dominates, I wonder how many they put in it!?!? Not getting much chocolate, but thats ok. Easy to drink and probably very nice in the summertime. Where's the ABV? I know its 8 % but no boozy flavor at all

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated.

O - I was a little doubtful as the Weizenbock is not in my top 10 styles, but adding Orange is an awesome twist with a side of sugar

3.58/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours a lovely deep brown color with a thin toffee colored head that retains well and leaves almost no lacing

S-Esters hit the nose at first and precedes a sweet, dark fruit and chocolate smell couples with alcohol and some spice

T-Cloves, bananas, and alcohol hit the palate at first as it fades into a sour finish with a spicy, alcoholic bite with a twinge of orange at the end

MF-A little overcarbonated and dry. Crisp, bubbly finish.

O-Neat concept, but the chocolate and orange don't come through well enough which leaves it a bit too sour for a weizenbock.

This was such an interesting brew. Really glad I got to try it!

Beer pours a muddy orange color, not super clear and not a whole lot of head on it. I smell the orange and get the strong malt component as well. Smells a little funky. The first few sips are just strange to me. Each seeming different, getting more orange or more chocolate. However, with time, as the beer warms up it seems to hit its stride. I definitely am tasting the bock-like profile with the taste of an orange dipped in chocolate. Really enjoyable and super interesting.

Perhaps an odd concept but I've got to give props...the beer is exactly what it says it is. A weizenbock with an orange chocolate character. Intriguing, bold, and tasty!
