12 oz brown long neck with an Enjoy By freshness date on the label, nice blurb about the beer and it also states that this is a bottle conditioned brew.
Appearance: For this sample I swirled the yeast in to the glass for the full effect, an true wheat beer drinker would agree. Reddish brown bordering on burgundy, obvious cloudiness from the yeast even before the yeast was poured in there was an evident haze. The head lays there two fingers deep waiting of the first sip.
Smell: Ripe bananas, medicinal root of some kind and light estery and fusel alcohols hit the nose. Malty sweet as well with a touch of caramel.
Taste & Mouthfeel: So creamy smooth in the mouth unbelievable. Solid flavourful fermented wheat twang upfront, layers of sweet and toasted malt hit next. Bitter medicinal phenols grab the palates attention and help to balance. The alcohol prickles the tongue and warms the body with its soothing esters. Very fruity with a flexed tropical base and banana in the forefront. Slight bitter herb and malt sweetness in the finish.
Notes: There are few Weizen Bocks around, none the less Victory is right on target with this one. Why I bought a single to sample I am going back for a case.

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
