OMG -- oldest brewery in the world (claimed) with the weizen bock, old school beer - love it!! A little sweet on the after taste, low carbonation, but mouth feel is good. This one is sweet and I like the hoppy/spicey/dry types generally. But, this one is so nice with a little kick - not so sweet like many of the Belgian beers. A little cloudy on the appearace - I know it's not a Krystall, but not a great look. Drink it as it should not disappoint.

Gorgeous. Hazy pale orange with a big, fluffy cream head.

The aroma is classic weizen - bubblegum and bananas with a hint of alcohol. Lots of aroma compared to many weizens, bock or otherwise, I've had lately.

The flavor follows the aroma almost perfectly - just lacking a little of the intensity that I expected. What's there, though, is still pretty damned flavorful and has a good dose of cloves added to the mix! A little bitterness that doesn't linger too long. There's also a little mineral character that I'm not quite placing but it works fine with the rest of the flavors.

Feels very nice. Light to medium body with a good amount of carbonation. A little more creaminess wouldn't have gone amiss.

Before today I'd thought that Aventinus was the pinnacle of weizenbocks. I was wrong.

500 ml bottle. Served in a weizen glass, the beer pours a cloudy straw gold color with a couple inch frothy white head that sticks around for a while. There's a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like wheat, lemon peel, banana, and cloves. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also the addition of some bubblegum and orange flavors. It's a little sweeter tasting than I was expecting, but that's a good thing in this case. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and has good carbonation. Overall, I think it's a pretty good brew. A great deal for just $2.99 a bottle, definitely recommended.
