On tap from Flying Saucer, Austin.
A: Cloudy mid-brown with orange highlights. A finger head of cream that quickly dissipated to a thin film which persisted for the duration of the pint.
S&T: Dominated by banana. The strong banana smell and aftertaste obliterated the rest of the experience. This was my first Weizenbock and may be par for the style but for me the esters took over the beer.
M: Middling and appropriate.
D: Low for me but I hope some weizenbock or dunkel lovers review for comparison!

Reviewed 1/3/2009 (Tap @ Flying Saucer, Houston, TX):

Pours a dark red brown color body. Smallish head, creamy and tan. Very strong ripe aroma, some spiciness. Almost all bananas. Creamy softly carbonated palate. A nice fruit cocktail and banana taste.. Strong banana taste, like in the nose.

On tap at Addison Flying Saucer.

Deep dark brown, minimal head, but its a clinger, nice lacing all the way down the pint glass. Roasty wheat and peppery smoke throughout the nose and very strong in the mouth. To me, its not the most pleasant taste, but I do think it fits the Weizenbock style. Goes down relatively smooth, and hides the 8% pretty well. I didn't try to drink more than one as I didn't particularly dig it. But, it is what it is, and I would encourage you to try it if you find yourself in Texas, especially if you are a Weizenbock fan. This doesn't taste all that far off Aventinus.

Served on tap into a tulip glass.

A - Muddy, dark brown. No head or lacing. Swift swirl of the glass causes a small head to appear, consisting of large-sized bubbles, that disappears in seconds.

S - Strong banana smell. Undertones of molasses. Little spice, most notably cloves.

T - Strong banana and bubblegum flavors. There is also a sweet chocolate malt taste. Slightly sour taste in the finish, and a slight hoppy aftertaste. Overall, however, it is banana and bubblegum.

M - Feels thin to medium. It has fizzy carbonation that froths up quickly in the mouth. Feels sweet and sticky on the lips. I feel no trace of 8% ABV.

D - The one glass is surprisingly filling. The flavor is strong. Even though it is a pleasant flavor, one glass is enough for me. It hides the alcohol well.
