grassy grain like smells in hear with a decent enough amount of yeast thrown in for good measure. full of life and grain for that matter. A very Belgian like flavor, witha good amount of light fruit like yeast and hints of pears and apples mixed in among the various grain like flavor

Appearance: Nice frothy one inch head. Good carbonation. Color is a lighter shade of mahogany.
Smell: Sweet with raisin hints along with the alcohol. Caramel notes also coming through with what appears to be a bubble gum/cotton candy scent as well.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Hearty upon contact. Has a sweet biscuit flavor. Then that raisin hue comes into play. An ever so slight clove/perfume mixture comes next and then a subtle sting of alcohol at the end. Smooth and pleasant candy-like aftertaste.
Drinkability: I love the concept behind Sam Adam's "Longshot" series. It's always interesting to see people's take on different styles and this Weizenbock was an admirable homage.

A: Hazy and chestnut brown with a thick 1+ finger of cream-colored head that slowly dissipates to a rocky cap with nice lacing.
S: Heavy on banana, dark dried fruits and clove. Spot on for the style.
T: Spicy, malty, has held up quite well after a year + in the fridge. Finish is crisp and clean, and really leaves me wanting more after each sip.
M: Crisp with a fizzy carbonation that tingles the tongue long after visible carbonation has subsided.

A solid weizenbock. Pours standard muddy brown, smell is of candied fruits, coriander, and mild malt sweetness. Nose is followed by taste, with a strong banana and mild melon to counterbalance the spice and moderate alcohol. All in all a good weizenbock, a style that is sorely underrepresented in the current market. Cheers to Jim for bringing this one to the market, even if I only got a few bottles of it.

Reviewed 4/17/2008 (bottle):
Pours a dark brown colored body, very murky, with a smallish but lasting gray colored head. Has a flowery grapey aroma. An okay body. Has a flowery taste, but too much fruit in the taste. A little heavy, but without the flavor.
