4.5/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
The Primus poured a an opaque deep rich amber brown with a huge fluffy tan head. The aroma was pure bubblegum banana bliss that hit all the perfect hefeweizen notes along with the spicy yeast and slight bits of sweet pear underneath. The taste was sublime and the mouthfeel was rich and creamy and all that I want in a weizenbock. The bubblegum and banana flavors dominated along with the yeast and strong hefeweizen spice notes that were expertly balanced. The Primus has to be on of the best Weizenbocks I have had and second only to Aventinus (although it is a Weizen Doppelbock) and my favorite Live Oak beer. This rich, creamy, satisfying brew was a real treat and something to look forward to every year.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.
A- Poured a murky brown with off-white frothy head that left no lacing.
S- Big pear, bubblegum, green apple, and some spicy yeast notes in the aroma.
T- Big pear, bubblegum, green apple, clove, spice notes, bready malt, and banana. Lots of clove and spice notes especially on the finish.
M- Prickly carbonation, smooth, dry, medium to fuller bodied, quite a big alcohol warming.
O- A great weizenbock that at some times reminded me of an awesome apple pie with nice sweet and baking spice notes. A really complex beer that revealed a lot of different layers.
Serving type: on-tap

4.24/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Half inch head recedes to thin cap and color. Murky brown color in the body. Sticky splotchy lacing.
Big time banana bubble gum nose. Could snort this forever.
Follows nose with the Laffy Taffy-esque banana flavors. Potpori mishmash. Good clean finish considering the style. Would guess this one at 7%abv.
Medium mouthfeel, medium-low carbonation for the style- likely due to grumbler package.
What a fun, enjoyable beer! I need more weizenbocks in my life. Thanks for the unexpected grumbler kojevergas!
