4.11/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bright golden hued with great clarity. A tightly knit inch thick head of white foam. Brussels lacing. Seriously enticing aroma of banana and sourdough bread. The mouth is moderately carbonated and dry. The front of the palate is sourdough bread and is quickly followed by the banana flavor that fades back to a more subtle sourdough bread fade.

4/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: copious effervescence, cloudy dark straw colour with good white foam

S: all the classic phenols, cloves, banana, citrus and of course yeast

T: at first sip, tastes like a top grade hefeweizen, banana and vanilla flavour with clean finish

M: just the right amount of carbonation to provide some astringency to prevent this fairly sweet beer from becoming cloying -

O: probably one of the best weizenbocks I've ever had (either this is an excellent beer, or I need to drink more of this genre . . . yes.)

Excellent price point for the quality of this beer, Would definitely put this on rotation as a go to Spring/summer beer.

4.71/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - 4.5 - Nice golden yellow color with a big white head on it that sticks just about forever.
S - 4.75 - You can literally smell it from arms length. Banana, vanilla yogurt, orange, white pepper, wheat bread in the background. It's so fresh and good.
T - 4.75 - Banana, wheat, fruity yogurt, bubble gum. This is a pretty ridiculously good beer, esp for the price.
M - 4.5 - Light - medium, alc covered, aftertaste is banana bread.
O - 4.75 - This beer has so much potential to be sickeningly sweet and cloying but it completely avoids that and blends all the flavors of a German bock beer in a way that's so good, you'll never want to touch an American wheat beer again.
