Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 12.21.13.

A: 2 1/2 finger fluffy head. Golden.

S: Banana, banana bread, lemon.

T: Follows the nose. Banana, lemon, yeast.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: This is the best Weizenbock I've ever had. It's a banana and lemon bomb, if there is such a thing. Fantastic!

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured from the bottle into a Weihenstephaner weizen glass.

Pours a deep creamy golden yellow with a large - rather, extra large head that leaves tons of lacing.

Smell is of clove, nutmeg, slight fruity banana, and some apple. Hints of sweet bread.

Taste is of strong banana, dark, caramel sweet wheat bread, sugar, clove, nutmeg, coriander, hint of noble hops. Just incredible. Dry finish, with spicy alcohol complementing the dark plum and grape notes. Also some pear, apple, and more banana in the finish.

The flavor of this beer is deeper than the Hubble deep field. The wheat is so thick, with an incredible depth of flavor. This is the beer. The beer. If I had to have one more beer in my life, it would be this one.
