Golden amber, quite cloudy. Several fingers of foam caps it off, leaving streaks of not very persistent lacing. Aromas are consistent with a hefeweizen, but with a much more pronounced malty sweetness. Honeyed bread is prevalent, while the yeast aspects (primarily clove, ripe banana, a little bit chalky) are more muted.

Flavor is just as the aroma suggests: like a higher gravity hefe. Kind of like maibock meets hefeweizen. Solid, sweet malt body, but there's just enough hop bitterness to keep it from becoming cloying. Super-smooth texture, almost silky. Notes of sweet golden raisin and overripe banana. Very tasty and easy-drinking.

This is an excellent pale Weizenbock. Don't pass this up if you even remotely enjoy wheat beers.

Bottle poured into a weizen glass. Poursl a beautiful golden hue with yellow highlights at the edges. Hazy appearance with foamy white head that lasts into the first few sips leaving a white ring atop the body.
The nose has lots of banana, apple, spices and cloves typical of the style. Flavor profile is similar with a nice,crisp bitterness on the finish. A nice medium body with a semi dry finish. Tight carbonation, really like the mouthfeel on this one. A bit bigger feel than a regular hef which comes across quite nice.
This is a strong offering from one of my preferred Bavarian breweries, very easy to drink with a higher abv (which could prove to be dangerous). Prost!
