Appearance - Pours a golden, straw-colored body that is cloudy. Effervescent. Thick white collar of head with medium-long retention.

Smell - Strong malts, bread and doughy. Light fruity esters of banana, melon. Phenol notes of clove. No hop presence.

Taste - Sweetness from bock-like malts laced with peppery phenol of cloves, vanilla. No hop bitterness, but alcohol helps balance the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-light, creamy mouthfeel. High carbonation. Slight warming from alcohol.

Overall - A fantastic example of the weizenbock style, from what may be the grandfather of beer.


Paid less than $3 for a pint-sized bottle at local grocer. At that price, this may be one of the best value-per-quality beers out there.

I honestly don't know what it is about this beer but it is damn near perfect in my book. It has a crispy fruity mouth taste, and it just gets more complex. The mouth feels is bubbly and playful. I hope that makes sense. It's a complex beer that drinks easy, a feat that for me is hard to find.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head that sticks around for a minute or two. Wonderful nose of bananas and citrus. Crisp clean flavor with a hint of bananas and a hint of alcohol at the finish. Creamy mouth feel. With all the great reviews you don't need me to tell you this is an outstanding beer.

Tastes, smells and looks like a buff Heifewiezen. Cloudy gold with a minimal and quickly disappearing head. The smell is banana, clove lemon and bubblegum, but tempered by a stron malt backbone. This one is pretty smooth for the ABV. Quite a tasty treat.
