A soft pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a three-finger thick, lightly browned, tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated amber-brown color that shows an almost brilliantly clear red-amber color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of a mix of banana, plum, definite clove, a touch of tart apple and a toasted cracker malt character. This smells surprisingly like a Dunkel Weizen, surprising because this seems like it is light in alcohol. Grassy wheat aromas mixes in with nice biscuit-like notes and hints of caramel. I like the mix of aromas here, it is very well balanced between the light tartness, the expressive fruit, interesting malt, and spicy Hefeweizen character.
Lightly sweet tasting, especially considering that this is a Bock, the beer finishes quite dry with a slight tartness though. A touch of toasted cracker in the finish also helps to dry things out. There is quite a bit of clove and spiciness in this beer; peppery, perhaps some ginger, and a big clove phenolic that lingers on the tongue, eventually coming to dominate all the other flavors in the long finish. This has a nice fruitiness that reminds me of sweet plums, lightly concentrated apples, both of which are accentuated by a nice tartness from the wheat & fermentation-character. There is also a very subtle, caramelized banana flavor here. While this is light and quaffable, it does have a nice creaminess to it that offsets the ample, prickly carbonation.
Well I finally checked the alcohol, and this is definitely quite a bit lighter than Aventinus; this makes it dangerously quaffable, because this does have some strength to it. Perhaps best described as a slightly stronger Dunkelweizen and a damn tasty one at that. This is a really enjoyable beer, especially once I get used to the idea that this is not a rich, strong Bockbier. Still this manages to achieve a richness through its depth of complex flavors.

Pours a dark brown color with a thick head, that leaves thick lacing around the glass.
I've never had a weissbier bock, so I'll try to pick all the right flavors out of it.
Has a sweet and sour kind of tinge. Like dried fruit.
I think I may have the beer a bit to cold, but it has a sweet malty flavor with lots of carbonation. As it warms it should become more complex. The yeast notes start to come out when it warms up.
It's a good beer but not really my style I'd drink it again when I'm looking for something different.

The beer poured amber brown with just a slight haziness. The head was off-white, fell quickly, but laced the glass.
The aroma was raisin and soft rounded wheat when first poured. As it warmed the aroma became yeasty with a slight underlying sour note. No alcohol is apparent in the aroma.
The flavor was soft wheat with raisins and a slight spiciness. Also present was some yeastiness but it added to the complexity of the beer. No alcohol apparent in the flavor.
The finish was slightly sweet and lasting into the aftertaste was a caramel raising flavor. The body was medium to medium full and the carbonation was definitely apparent.
0.5 L bottle. Very drinkable.
