Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: Pours a wonderfully cloudy dark amber color, with a two-finger off-white color head. Retention and lacing are respectable, but not amazing. Also has the nice touch of little yeast sediment specs rising to the head.

S: Banana, cloves, bubblegum, coriander, a little apple, and a very faint noble aspect. Nothing groundbreaking, but it works very well.

T: Very much like a quality hefe, but sweeter on the whole. The banana on the opening is quite strong, while it finishes with a solid tartness from the apple-esque flavor, combined with a bit of spiciness. Alcohol is hidden very well, almost perfectly in fact, making this one quite dangerous.

M: Carbonation is on the high side...make that on the very high side (deriving from its 'bock strength', perhaps?), but is helped quite a bit by a smooth, somewhat creamy body. Superbly refreshing.

O: My only complaint is that the sweetness wears on me a tad as I progress through the beer. Otherwise, it strikes me as a unique twist on the classic hefe, and along with its stupid drinkablilty factor, makes it one that's well worth diving into.

This beer was a surprisingly delightful experience. I poured the cloudy, lively-colored brew into a glass and was converted into a weizen-bock fanatic instantly. I've tried a fair few now but I think this is quite possibly my favorite. Aventinus is another great one but it doesn't have the same refreshing quality. Vitus is great also but not as cloudy and substantial. I should add that I had this beer after a long day working outside. My thirst and desire for a cold refreshing beverage may have something to do with my decision to award this brew a near perfect 5.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

1 Pt bottle into a weizen glass.

Aroma is quite complex. Initial smell is sweet, with hints of banana and apple. Further smelling brings in scents of dark fruits.

Pours pale yellow, nice amber color in the glass, with a very robust foamy head that fades and lingers slightly. A LOT of sediment in the bottom of glass.

Fruity, tart, and also rather earthy on the palate. Carbonation is surprisingly strong, gives this beer a "bite" on the tongue. As it warms up a bit, a (fruity) sweetness begins to be tasted. Full bodied, but nice and smooth.

Overall, I really like this one.
