Big observation for this brew: TONS of floaty yeast crap all over the place, and I can respect that (if not be desperate to drink it). Appearance is an amber-orange color with a smallish head on top. This is a tasty one though, nice fruitiness all over the place. Nice mix of wheat, malt, and subtle hoppiness. A nice brew, if not the most unique of all beers.

I've had a bottle of this sitting in my cellar for over 4 years now. Not sure why. I think that when my friend and i split a 6 pack of this about 4 years ago we did not think it was all that good fresh so we each decided to age some in our respective cellars for a while to see if this beer improved. It says on the label of the bottle I have here "enjoy by September 2010", meaning that this beer is about 4 years old at least. Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my weizen glasses, this beer pours a cloudy/hazy, medium amber/copper color with lots of little floating chunks of yeast and bubbles continually rising to the top of the glass. Has a nice slightly off-white head that is well over an inch thick when first poured that eventually settles to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass with some swirls of foam on the beer's surface and not all that much lacing. Has yeasty aromas of some toasted caramel malts, bananas, apples, and a little bit of brown sugar. The taste is pretty much the same with slightly toasted caramel malt, banana and apple, hints of toast with brown sugar and a slight touch of clove and cracked pepper corn. No discerible hop flavors whatsoever. Has a crisp yet smooth, slightly prickly, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate to heavy carbonation. Pretty good and not bad at all for a 4 year old beer.

Pours a cloudy copper color with a tan head. In the aroma, a dry banana and it is also a bit nutty. In the taste, sticky sweet/ dry banana and a small wheat presence. A smooth dry mouthfeel and a dry fruity aftertaste. Almost like drinking banana nut bread. One of the better weizen bocks, a great beer.

Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy orangish-amber color with a one-finger tan head that quickly dissipates. When observed through a light you can the specs of yeast on the bottom.

S: Strong caramel aroma with a mixture of ripe bananas and alcohol.

T: Caramel hits me at first with a generous sweetness with a little roasted malt bitterness. A smooth wheaty flavor that goes down easy and finishes thick and warm. Hints of ripe bananas and finishes spicy with an alcohol kick.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Very smooth and hazy.

O: This was my first experience with a weizenbock and I was impressed with the style and flavor of this brew. I enjoyed this brew and would drink it again when available.
