A cloudy orange body, decent head, thin collar, low retention. Develops a nice puffy collar.

Huge banana nose, big phenolic presence, plastic...grimy sharp, industrial. Clove background and spicy power.

Bright citrus burst rolling into s banana smoothie. It's herby, spicy, sharp cloves... Bubble gum finish and relatively dry characteristics after the clove burns free.

Carbonated off the bat, bitingly so. Through and through You have a full bodied flood of liquid that nearly hides the flavors. Flavors are unique and blended.

Really nice. Really worth trying.

On draft- into a snifter

Appearance- Pours a hazy yet vibrant orange, with one finger of creamy head, decent retention, with some nice lacing.

Smell- Wheaty and banana, notes of citrus, lemon and orange. Some spicey clove.

Taste- Very smooth overall up front. Strong orange flavors again, juicy mandarin, subtle lemon. Clove, coriander, yeast, your typical weizenbock flavors. Very pronounced banana on the finish. Nice balance throughout.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation, creamy, there is some slight “heat” to this as well.

Overall- A nice weizenbock, another nice effort by the boys at FFF. Is it as good as Vitus or Aventinus, no; but it is one of the better American versions I have had. Definitely worth trying if you see it pop up, as they are sending barrels of this out beyond the brewery!

From My Notes:

A- Very hazy yellow with good size white head.

S- Very crisp citrusy hop smell. Some banana notes mixed in towards the end.

T- The clove gives this beer a spicy flavor to it. Citrus hops all over the place. The banana flavor comes out pretty well, but the cloves really come out

M- Lighter on the body and moderate carbonation in the feel.

D- Lots of flavor in this year. I really enjoyed the clove spices

On tap at Fiddler's...live review. Thanks Jeremy for this one!

A- Pours a hazy golden orange color. Two finger white head show medium retention. Streaks of lace here and there mix with a spotty lace as well. Looks great!

S- Tons of banana and bubblegum upfront. There is a light clove in the middle with hints of alcohol. More banana and bubblegum on the backend.

T- I get a light pineapple juice upfront to this beer. This quickly turns into a smoothie banana flavor. Hint of bubblegum and alcohol in the middle. Banana come through in the backend times ten. There is a light metallic flavor that hints for a second before more fresh banana and hints of clove end this one up.

M- Medium heavy mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Bubblegum, banana, light metallic flavor is left on the palate. Aftertaste is banana, clove, and hints of alcohol. Flavors were blended very well for the style. Hint of metallic flavor in the ending is the only flaw in this beer. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This beer was a very nice drinking beer. Hell all FFF beers are great and this is just another example.

On-tap at the Clark Street Alehouse in a snifter. Thanks to Victoria who works there for the excellent pour. Appearance is awesome, golden and not clear. The nose kills me it's so good, making me very excited for the first sip. I could just stick my proboscis all the way in to the bottom of the glass and drink this through my nose it feels like. Definitely a winner. Great yeast character in both smell and taste. Hops and malt are well balanced and there is a depth of flavor and sensation, sharpness, crispness, dryness, fruitiness...highly recommended if you ever get a chance to try it. The only other place I'm aware of that has it on-tap is the 3F's brewpub. Cheers to 3Fs on another solid beer.

On tap at Three Floyds last Saturday. Server in a miniature weizen glass, as best as I can describe it.

Poured a hazy golden color that was a bit darkened, though still fairly light. Quite hazy. Good white head with some fluff and nice retention. The nose brings quite a bit of clove along with banana and bubblegum. Touch of alcohol there as well. The taste integrates everything fairly well, though there's no real pop bringing it to the next level. Mouthfeel is good--nice carbonation and a bit of a creaminess with just a bit of booze in the finish. Quite tasty.

On tap at Three Floyds. Served in a weisse glass.

From the menu: our German-styled heller weizenbock, malty with hints of candied banana and clove. 20 IBU 9% ABV

Looks dark and cloudy. Just barely translucent. Nice white head has strong retention for the style, especially considering the ABV! Very thick lacing forms big rings.

The nose has big banana notes, lesser hints of clove, and a solid malty base-- caramel and bready.

The taste has some light sweetness upfront, then the fruity banana esters kick in. Clove comes across towards the backend, but the finish is really pretty clean. Something gives me a "Fruit Stripes Gum" note.

The body is full for the style. Ample carbonation lightens the feel up a tad. This works. It works well. This is an imperial version of a style that I don't normally pickup for myself, but it has plenty of flavor, a good feel, and enough ABV to sneak up on you!

Three Floyds pushes the boundaries-- successfully-- yet again.

Hour-old growler into a Duvel tulip.

A: Hazy, wheaten cider body with some off-white head that settles quickly, with little lacing.

S: Banana, clove, and some spice, with a touch of bubblegum. Really pleasant, if you're into hefeweizen.

T: Just a bit sweet and sticky, given the wheat and the ABV. Good banana esters and noble hopping.

M: This was more carbonated on tap of course, and it shows that it came out of a growler. However, the body is very full but not overkill, with appreciable chew.

D: A bit too drinkable for 9 percent. This goes down so easily and tastes very good.

Served in a german weizen glass at Local Option 2/5/11.

A: Served an absolutely gorgeous looking hazy, caramel/orange/amber color that glowed even in the low light at Local Option. Creamy and pillowy weiss head displayed excellent retention and left a lacy mess in the glass.

S: Big time clove, banana, and cardamom. Some quite lemony Noble hops pushed their way through and kept this from becoming too yeasty.

T: See above. As it came up to temp it started to show off a bit of a boozy alcohol flavor that was simply not there when freshly poured.

M: Thick and creamy and quite sticky. Interesting bright citrus hop cleaves its' way through before being overshadowed by a hint of alcohol roughness at the very end.

D: An excellent example of the style. Would like them to brew a version of this with a point or two less abv%.
