16.9 oz bottle purchased from Las Vegas last weekend poured into my beer goblet. No freshness code, but I do see that this one is batch 6103.
Appearance: Three finger fluffy white head atop a hazy yellow beer. Exactly what a wheat beer should look like. Great lacing
Smell: Slight noble hop flavor along with the soft malt notes from the wheat. A bit of clove and banana in the scent.
Taste: A thread of clove runs throughout the taste but it does not dominate. The wheat is present along with the hops. The best word to describe all of the flavors is soft.
Mouthfeel: Velvety smooth beer with big quantities of flavor.
Overall: I think this is the first weizenbock that I have had, but it will not be the last. I really love the German wheat beers.
Serving type: bottle

On tap @ Library Alehouse.
A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades slowly to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.
N: Estery, cloves, bananas, wheaty, faint bacon.
T: Sweetish malts balanced well with estery fruits, bananas, cloves, with a mild ABV heat and a nice woodyness.
M: Medium body and semi-medium carbonation. Fruity, estery and wheaty finish.
O: Hard to describe how intricate this beer is. Almost a cognac-like thing happening which is probably from a magical combination of the wheat and malts. An interesting "big" weizen. Again, why have I not tried this before. Really liked. Give it a try.
Serving type: on-tap
