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.

3.73/5 rDev -11%
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.

$ 5.99/500 mL bottle at Oppermanns Cork ‘N’ ale
Bottle with no date/production markings at 45 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of sweet fruit, hint of apple
Head on initial pour large (> 10 cm), rapidly diminishing to 4 cm; subsequent pours make little contribution to head size. Finally diminishes to 2 mm layer. White and creamy.
Body medium yellow-gold with slight haze. Heavy sediment layer in bottle bottom.
Flavor begins and ends slightly sweet with some yeasty phenolics peeking out. No alcohol, no hops, no malt, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation with a few bubbles rising throughout the life of the glass.
An easy drinking non-aggressive beer. Pleasant and relaxing but, IMHO, overpriced.
