look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance - pours a brownish iced tea color into the Sam Adams glass. A large foam cap, smooth and creamy. Good sized chunks of speckled lace all around as the head settles. Lots of white flaky sediment churning up and down the glass. Holds quite well at a thin cover; must be that laser etching!

Aroma - loaded with yeast and banana aroma. A certain heaviness from the malt is there but isn't picked up directly, more of an enhancement to the yeast.

Taste - the bready sweetness of a bock, the spicy weizen yeast, both mixing nicely with a mild hop flavor post-swallow. A well-balanced alcohol element helps tie it all together. The end has all these elements, a fine and complex palatte of flavors.

Mouthfeel - appropriate thickness and heaviness for a weizenbock. Muted carbonation adds to the effect.

Drinkability - for all the wheat based beer styles, weizenbock is my favorite, and Victory has a fine one here.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Chicago Bears pint glass. I could have gone for the appropriate glassware but hey the Bears were playing (and losing).

Aroma: RICH melanoidins with some wheat yeast spicy phenolics. Hints of green apple, maybe a little sulfur, and possibly banana.

Appearance: deep orange-ish amber, appropriatley cloudy with a persistent off-white head and damn nice lacing.

Flavor: WOW! As with the aroma very rich melanoidins backed by just enough hop bitterness for balance and same spicy wheat yeast phenolics. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: full bodied and luscious.

Overall: never had this beer before, have been wanting to try it, and lo and behold four-packs are on sale for $7.99 at Jenny St. Market. This is quite possibly the best weizenbock I've ever had and is certainly up there with Aventinus. Just a wonderful beer: prost!
