On tap at Mahaffey's today. This has long been one of my favorite beers from Victory, but for whatever reason, I have not seen it on tap here in Baltimore in some time.

The beer pours a reddish amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is weizenbock sweet (think Aventinus), with considerable clove, bubblegum and banana. Flavors on the palate generally replicate the nose, except I also pick up some brown sugar and chocoate flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full in this fairly sweet beer, though there's nothing heavy or tiring about drinking this beer. The alcohol is really well disguised and integrated into the flavor profile, and as a result drinkability is pretty good.

Just an all around solid beer from Victory. Good stuff.

A - Pours a cloudy dark amber. There's a fluffy tan head.

S = A dark fruit aroma like rasins and date. It has a spicy yeast character as well.

T = Very much yeasty. To be honest I don't have a lot of weizenbock experience and this really reminds me of a unibroue offering. Nice malty sweetness at first that is cut back by a finishing bitterness. There's a medly of yeast and spiciness the whole way through.

M - It is highly carbonated but has a nice creamy mouthfeel at the same time. Finishes slightly dry.

D - Easy to drink but its a fairly big flavorful beer. Not really sessionable. Leaves me wanting more, but at a later date.

All in all I was really impressed and wish I had more of it. I will definitely try this again.

The beer pours a dark orange color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a dry, yet fruity wheat scent that is sweet and slightly malty. The taste is good as well. It has a smooth wheaty flavor that goes down easy and finishes thick and warm. It has excellent clove and banana flavors, but with a darker feel. It has a wonderful fruity aftertaste. The mouthfeel is good. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a fine weizenbock. It has good flavor and aroma; an excellent drinker.

Complex flavor of bananas, German bread, booze, brown sugar and moderate carbonation. Tasty!

Reddish brown in color with orangish hues on the edge of the glass and a deep haze. Poured with a short off white foam that reduced to sparce wisps. Wheat malt and ripe apple and banana aromas. (Hick, smooth feel. Sweet caramel and wheat malt flavors up front followed instantly by dark fruit and banana. Spicy herbal tangy flavor through the middle to the finish. Started to show a bit of boozy character at the finish as this warmed a bit. Very easy to to drink. Would certainly have this again.

A: This beer pours a hazy amber hue with visible sediment dancing around in the glass. A 1/4 inch of white head sits on top that recedes immediately. Minimal spotty lacing is left on the glass.

S: Nose is of rich caramel malts, molasses and toffee... plum and spices are present as well.

T: Taste starts with caramel malts and molasses. Sweet but not overdone. Touch bready in the middle but is qiockly overtaken by the fruitiness. Apple, pear, and banana really take over the finish giving a nice sweet finish but one that doesn't stick with you.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky body to this one.

D: Nicely balanced, sweet but not overpoweringly so. The sweetness doesn't stick with you. Goes down very easily and is one that I could enjoy a few more of.
