Thanks a lot to rtepiak for this brew!!

A: This has to be the palest weizenbock I've seen, yellow in color. Full four fingers of a pure white and quite soapy looking head. Retention and lacing are phenomenal like they were with the original.

S: This is what you'd expect from a weizenbock. The yeast and the wheat are in the front. You get a nice amount of banana bread (banana, molasses, toffee, breadiness, etc...), cloves, pepper, candied orange peel. Subtle strawberries. Complex, strong and inviting. Perfect.

T: As expected from the look of the beer, this has less molasses, brown sugar and general breadiness than most weizenbock, but they are still there. Very fruity with bananas and strawberries mostly. Light grass-like flavor and floral notes. Exceptionally balanced and tasteful.

M: Oh so light and fluffy, nothing beats the mouthfeel of weihenstephaner.

O: Although not my favorite brew I had (but damn close!!), I simply cannot see a fault with this brew. It looks amazing, smells insanely good, taste is awesome and balanced AND extremely easy to drink and the feel is super light and fluffy while not being watery AT ALL.

Very similar to the hefeweissbier only stronger and with less of a banana nose. World-class - one of the best beers I've had the pleasure of tasting. For 3.99 at the grocery store, this has to be one of the best deals on import beer in the united states.
