I've been craving a wezienbock lately, so this should be nice of a cold night. Not date on the bottle unfortunately, but picked this up recently.

Pours a huge over carbonated like fluffy fizzy 3 finger head that takes up half the glass, fades slowly and turns fluffy and pillowy with nice lacing, and a stream of bubbles rising in the hazy but mostly clear candy apple reddish slight orange colored beer.

Nose is mostly what I expected, some biscuit and toffee, caramel and brown sugar candied darker fruits, a little raisin like, lots of wheat, toasted darker brown like wheat, little fig paste, etc, but it has that under-attenuated before bottling like aroma that was taken over by yeast and it's gotten a bit yeasty and some phenolic alcohol bite, bit boozy in the aroma.

Taste brings more of the same, toasted brown wheat malts, a little orange zest in there somehow, with more candied fruits, fig paste, date, candied raisin, etc, with more sweet flavors, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, etc again, and pretty sweet but not overly. A mild toasted biscuit as well, with some chewy almost molasses like notes, and again that yeasty flavor from under attenuated then over bottle conditioned yeast, but at least it didn't erupt in the bottle surprisingly. Booze is fairly prevalent, a little fusel alcohol with a mild phenolic tone. Finish is drier surprisingly, more booze lingering, some candied dried darker fruits, darker wheat and biscuit, and candy but not sticky.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, little sticky syrupy, way too much carbonation.

Overall not bad, but just left too sweet in the bottle and yeast just took over, shouldn't be that old either, but at least it's not too sweet. Some candy was nice, darker dried candied fruits were nice, and the wheat was nice, just not the yeast and alcohol was a bit much. It was a nice sipper for a cold almost winter night but bit more than I expected. The somewhat dry finish was also a nice surprise, not as sticky sweet as I was expecting.
