What a great beer. This unique brew pours a hazy orange with a bright glow. The head is average. The aroma of this beer is incredible. It made my fiance(sp?), Beerhater gag from ten feet away. The aroma is a funky, yeasty, fruity, spicy kick in the nuts. The taste is a spicy complex mix of sour cherries, tart apples, and bitter grapefruit with a balancing malt sweetness. It all goes down pretty easily with a medium body and warm alcohol. There is no hop flavor or aroma, just enough bitterness for a bitter finish after the sweet and sour flavor. This is a fine brew. Last year I was unfamiliar with the style when I first tried it and was blown away by the crazy flavor when I was expecting a strong hefeweizen beer, but this was quite different.

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
