Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Label says Enjoy By: 19 Aug 2015.

A- Pours a light brown color with a 3/4 inch tan head that retains well before melting away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Rich Belgian candi sugar aroma with some spice intermingled. The yeast really drives it home with the esters bringing some dark fruit essence to the table.

T- Dark bread, tangy yeast and a noticeable alcohol presence. More Belgian candi sugar sweetness.

M- Tight and snappy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- A good beer but I would kind of like the booze to not be so apparent. Maybe a bit of aging could help? Either way, one I'm glad I revisited as I've not had it in a long time.

12oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a hazy medium brown with a huge fluffy white head that nearly flows out of the glass. Head retention is out of this world.

Aroma has loads of bubblegum along with coriander. Lots of yeasty spiciness. Maybe just a touch of grass.

Lots of spice in the flavor that really jumps out. There is a touch of caramel that I didn't pick up in the aroma along with some additional malt character. Some grape juice and just a hint of noble hops. Mouthfeel is just a touch on the thin side but alcohol is well hidden.

Overall, a very good weizenbock and one I thoroughly enjoyed, despite not being a huge fan of the style. I would definitely get this one again.

12oz. bottle served in a weizen glass. Enjoy by 19 Aug 2015 printed on the label. Pours a dull brown, somewhat reminiscent of prune juice in color and clarity, with a loose, half inch, cream-colored head. Nose expresses grape notes and yeast. Taste consistent with nose; however, it's all a bit dull. There's also a suggestion of bubblegum, as well as a hint of noble hops towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a prickly carbonation. Overall, a bit bland for a style I generally like. The alcohol is certainly well-hidden on this one, however.
