The beer poured a reddish brown and was cloudy with a good deal of suspended yeast particles floating about my glass. A creamy tan head was present following the pour. I detected an aroma that was a mix of sour apples, banana and spices. This beer's flavor was tart and there were traces of sour apple and banana flavors.
When I first started sampling this seasonal beer, I ran into some bottles that had gone sour even they weren't that old and had been well cared for after they'd been purchased. Victory seems to have improved their quality control with respect to this beer since I've not had a bad sample in the last couple of years. This beer has a unique taste and is not for every beer drinker.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.
Pours a golden amber color with significant active visible carbonation. Long retaining 1 inch head, some good lacing.
Smells like yeast esters, bananas and caramel.
Similar flavor. Nice maltiness to this one to make it a weizenbock- caramel, toffee, and yeasty breadiness, along with typical weizen qualities of banana and clove. Very well integrated beer. Alcohol is slightly present.
Medium-bodied, crisp mouthfeel, very warming. Dry finish.
Don't see too many American made versions of this style, loved getting a chance to try this one.
Serving type: on-tap
