Ruby brown/red ochre color. Plenty of soupy yeast cloud. The head is a lip of greasy foam. Splotches stickily.

Thick caramel banana, toasty wheat, peachberry, mild chocolatiness, medicinal clove, and overripe pear. Pretty awesome weizenbock aromas.

Digs in with booze strength that leads the charge ahead of ripe banana, red wheat, brown sugar, nectarine, and almond-y yeast. Faint milk chocolate malt and caramel. Really rich and estery. Awesome German replica ale.

Too hot to trot. Body doesn't disappoint, thick and wooly. Carbonation is mix-worthy. Just the strength is flawed.

Way to go, Southern Tier. Flavorful, tasty, odorous, and chewy. Impressed with this' un.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a very hazy orange amber with a one finger light tan head that dissipates to a thick cap with good lacing. Aroma of caramel, dark wheat, banana and clove. Flavor of lightly toasted wheat, caramel, banana clove, about as close to banana bread as I've ever had, with the only competition being Wells Banana Beer; this is more interesting. Finishes with mild hop and clove bitterness that lingers for a while. Medium bodied. A nice fruit forward weizenbock, with good caramel and clove. The sweetness is balanced by the drier clove finish. Southern Tier tends towards the sweet side in most styles, this one included, but that's to my taste; enjoyed this as much as any weizenbock I've had.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured chilled in ale glasses, chez buzzlitebeer

A: copper color; thin head; good carbonation; decent lacing
S: cherry, malt aroma; yeast and banana; very inviting
T: cloves, banana; sweet malt matches the booziness; low hop profile (buttering more significant than finishing hops); very intense flavor, but not complex

Great beer to finish a session. Yes, have it, and have it again!
