Not a huge fan of lagers or german-style brews, but this one floated my boat for sure!
Beer was poured into a standard pint glass. Color was a luminescent amber-brown. Lots of rich haze in this brew! Smell was good, with an indistinct malt-note coming through the strongest. Almost smelled like candy... Taste was an explosion of harmonious flavors. Buttery bannana notes came through the strongest of the fruity tones, with a sweet backbite not unlike a low-impact carmel. Clearly a lager, but what a blend! Really good mouthfeel and drinkability, If I ever found myself at the Munich Octoberfest, I'd search out brews of this style (but would doubt they'd be this good). An outstanding weizenbock.

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
