4.24/5  rDev -0.7%
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!

Serving type: growler

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On tap at Freetail Brewing in San Antonio, TX.

A - Pours a very cloudy and murky dark amber/brown with a finger of tan head.

S - Lots of banana and dark fruit in the nose along with sweet caramel and clove.

T - Great flavor with banana at the forefront followed by sweet caramel malts, clove, and yeast. There is a slight hint of chocolate as well, though very subtle.

M - Moderate body with moderate carbonation. It's smooth and drinkable, with a surprisingly well hidden alcohol.

O - Yet another great beer from Live Oak. I still prefer the hefe, but this is great nonetheless.

Serving type: on-tap
