look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500mL bottle (no date) poured into a Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: Dark hazy/translucent orange-brown with a very thin white head on top. Lacing and foam not persistent and died back not too long after pouring. Lots of carbonation coming up through the glass though, fun to watch. While I gave the bottle a bit of a swirl towards the end of the pour, there was a lot of caked sediment on the bottom of the bottle which would not come along, and I suspect that sediment is what is making the head dissipate. Good color and appearance, although it would be better if the foam and lacing stuck around.

Smell: Cloves, small amount of banana, some yeast/grainy smell, and quite a bit of sweet malt at the back. It is indeed like someone combined a bock and a hefeweizen.

Taste: Clove and banana moving into a solid malt middle - sweet, caramel, definite bock flavor malt. The finish is a bit spicy - some German noble hop flavor spicy + bitter finish. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, cleanses the palate and definitely spicy on the tongue. Smooth. just right thickness under the carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: I wonder how this beer would have been had I given it a more careful pour and left all the sediment in. Still, a good combination of a hefeweizen and a bock beer. Quite drinkable - I would not mind cracking open another bottle and continue to savor this beer.

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.
