Had this on tap the other night at the Flying Saucer in Ft Worth. It was a real dark beer, dark brownish in color. I really enjoyed the smells it gave off especially for a dark beer, very fruity smell that was mostly banana. It tasted great too, it was very hoppy that was mixed with fruits and wasn't filling like a dark beer normally is. I thought it was an exceptional beer that was very drinkable. I even had a second. My girlfriend also loved this beer and she isn't a fan of beer at all!

Sampled at the Flying Saucer, San Antonio

A - Pours a dark, cloudy mahogony with a weak head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam. Lacing is light.

S - Banana, clove, citrus, and spice, as expected.

T - Tons of banana and citrus flavors complimented by clove and spice. There were some sour lemon notes up front that complimented everything else nicely. Very tasty!

M - Full-bodied and exquisitely rich. Finishes medium-dry with some spice lingering on the palate.

D - A very enjoyable beer and a great representation of the style. However, the richness of it would make it difficult to have more than a couple. Once again, the guys at Live Oak have shown their ability emulate the finest styles of German beers.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark brown with tiny amber tint. Two fingers of head that lasted a decent time. Medium lacing.

S - Smells of banana and clove throughout. Overall smell of bubble gum comes through.

T - Starts with a clove taste that smooths out into a banana taste. Finishes with a clove pinch. Has a bubble gum taste to it.

M - Medium body with some decent carbonation on finish. A tiny bit of oily feel in middle.

D - At 8% this beer does not have an overpowering alcohol warming to it but it does posses some. Not for every night but a well balanced beer that would be perfect in winter.

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.
