A classic Weizenbock that shows real depth and real class in the mouthfeel and use of hefe notes and the deeper darker aspects of the bock. I can't really find much to fault in this beer for the style as it is redolent of bananas and dark fruit with a luscious mouthfeel that really makes you want the beer never to end.

Poured from chilled bottle into weizen glass

A- Really fluffy billowy head with lots of big and little soapy bubbles effervescing and crackling. The head slooowly fell down and gave way to a nice golden hazy beer. It was a little lighter than I expected, but it's not a dunkel.

S- Smells strong, but, the smell is not really alcohol. It just smells like a nice strong, hardy German beer. Tart, fruit, yeast, banana bread, pair, a hint of cinnamon and warm apples.

T- Much like the smell, nice yeasty flavors, a little spice, some coriander?

M- Nice, thick, chewy, full bodied beer.

O- A nice representation of the style. It's full bodied and has some kick behind it. It has a nice complexity to it while not going over the top, as it is in my opinion that some of these weizenbocks are a bit too intense with the flavors. The beer is well balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Also, it is a great deal for an import with a higher ABV at only around $3-$4 a bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Poured out a very cloudy golden color. Two fingers of off white head. Solid retention but not too much lacing.

S: Mostly notes of banana and clove.

T: All of the qualities of the nose with a subtle lemony hop background flavor.

M: Medium, creamy body with a champagne-like carbonation.

O: I was thoroughly pleased with this one. It was a bit on the sweet side, but a great beer through and through. Solid in every category.
