Pours with very little head that quickly dies to a thin, patchy cover of slick-looking, tiny grayish bubbles with zero cling. Carbonation is visible despite the murk of yeast particles suspended in this sienna or iced tea-colored liquid with foggy orange highlights. Aromas of gingerbread and dried banana chips with hints of dried apple, clove, and bubblegum are initially pleasant, with a big finish like vanilla extract. Prickly nosefeel full of acid and spice is a bit thin. And then, everything gets washed out by alcohol. This is just a hint of things to come: flavors bitter with clove, sweet like bubblegum being slathered on banana bread, hints of raisins, and alcohol. Aftertaste is a vise grip of nutmeg, clove, SenSens, and alcohol. Intense, tingling mouthfeel practically numbs the palate with carbonation or... could it be... ALCOHOL? Surely, intrinsic flavors are being masked here. At 8.7 abv this is a one-at-a-time type of beer befitting an autumn afternoon, but other than that, somewhat heavy-handed. Complex for sure, but what's the point when it's got a body like mouthwash?

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
