A - Pours a hazy dark amber with a two-finger foamy off-white head. Lots of sticky lacing.

S - Aroma of banana, apple, pear, cloves, and caramel.

T - Flavor starts fruity with apples, pears, and banana. The fruit flavors give way to wheat and yeastiness. Finish has some more of the yeasty phenolics.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a damn fine Weizenbock. Lots of fruity flavors make this a tasty seasonal.

Bought a single bottle at Monde Market in Philly this past Thursday on 10/16/14. Enjoy by date reads 8/19/15 on the label. Poured into my Victory Sunrise Weissbier weizen glass. Massive rocky head with a vigorous pour, almost the length of the entire glass. Took me a few minutes just to empty the entire bottle into the glass due to the seemingly everlasting head. Made sure to swirl the bottle to get some yeast dregs into my glass. Looks a cloudy orange copper with nice carbonation.

Smells of banana, clove, pear, green apple, slight vanilla, candied raisins, and wheat bread. Spicy noble hops and a black pepper from the weizen yeast.

Tastes wonderfully complex with notes of clove phenols, banana, bready wheat malts, light vanilla, and some dark fruit like plums or dark cherries. Can feel the alcohol warmth in the back of the throat at the finish. Seems moderately sweet with no hop flavor.

Feels medium to full bodied with warming alcohol and nice carbonation.

A very nice weizenbock. An excellent version made here in PA. Nice autumn seasonal offering just as the weather is starting to turn cool. Forget pumpkin beers, I really wish more breweries would make a beer like this! A very well executed beer by Victory (yet again).

Pours a hazy copper color with a voluminous, light tan, creamy head. No lace but damn.
Smell is malty, spices, wood, and light smoke whiskey. Very well balanced.
Taste is malt, whiskey, smoke, spices some vague fruit and faint wood. The balance is pretty good but gets a bit lopsided after it warms.
Mostly medium bodied, lighter effervescence. Warming and relatively smooth except on the tongue at first sip where it is a bit sharp. Not as good as Aventinus but a very good brew to be certain.
