another great offering from Victory, in my opinion the top brewer on the east coast...

Poured out a very hazy dark brown with yeasties floating around and a nice 1 1/2 inch head that left nice lacing throughout.
Aroma was clove and spice, with hints of caramel and apple.
taste was pretty much the same but just seemed like it all blended so well that no one flavor seemed to stand out.
Excellent wheat bock, very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Recently purchased another 6er of this, best by 040405 on the bottle. wow, its definitely different then the first 6er. This one was abit lighter in color with no floaties/yeasties. The overall flavor was similar, however it reminded me more of a belgian triple then a wheat bock. Don;t get me wrong though. its still dam tasty.

Ok, I have had this beer since the fall when I picked up a case of this at Raystown Beverage in Huntingdon, Pa. This has been the sole survivor to see how this beer aged.

Bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Even with an extremely gentle pour the head on this beer was huge. It was several inches high and lingered for a long time leaving beautiful lacing all over the glass. I could only fit about 2/3 on the first amount of the pour. The color is hazy amber orange/brown with a ton of sediment.

S: Very fruity esters in the nose. Smells like a mixture or raisins and flowers. Reminiscent of a La Fin Du Monde.

T: Delicious. The beer is spiced rather well. The raisin/fruity flavors pull through with a slight sour/bitterness. The higher level of alcohol has a warming effect on the palate and throat.

M: The mouthfeel on this one is perfect. Creamy and warm, and extremely effervescent (maybe that could be perceived as a downfall).

O: This is certainly one of my favorite beers. I am not sure if aging it for months helped it or detracted from it. This is an extremely drinkable beer and the taste just sends me over the top. Victory rarely lets me down.
