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.
