Nose: Banana bread aromas with a hint of clove,
Cloudy orange 2” white foam cap, rocky, persistent, clingy, lacy.
Palate: Malt driven, big banana bread with slight tartness from the wheat (hint of lemon) on the end but there is a light sweetness throughout.
Medium full body, medium high carbonation, very fine and soft, creamy.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass

L: orange-brown, super hazy, not overly dark but a bit darker than standard hefeweizen yellow-orange; huge thick white to off-white foam head; no stick or lacing; shows some bubbles

S: super sweet, banana, some orange, bubble gum ... very sweet; some tart/sour pops in every now and then, but it's very sweet

T: standard hefeweizen banana sweet but with just a pinch of spice ... clove? allspice? it's a bit like a witbier spice; not an ounce of alcohol in the taste, it's perfectly hidden; strong candy hefeweizen, perhaps a bit more tart than the nose; over time, it gets a bit Belgian tripel-like ... very fruity, even ranging into a Belgian dubbel-like taste (darker fruits than banana)

F: solid, good carbonation

O: really good and a great way to get a bit more ABV out of hefeweizen ... honestly, the only thing different from standard hefe here is the extra 1-3% ABV and that Belgian witbier spice ... other than that, it's good banana hefeweizen

This great beer pours a cloudy and hazy light copper with a dense and creamy white head. There are floating chunks in the glass as well.
The aroma is all ripe banana and light cloves with hints of pepper.
The taste is spicy clove up front with a little peppery bite with ripe banana and just a hint of lemony/acidic hop late in the sip.
Great mouthfeel, so smooth and creamy.
Overall, just a wonderful brew.

Cloudy, golden appearance with two fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma is huge bananas and cloves, with I slight hint of bubblegum. Taste is bananas, cloves and just a minor bit of citrus tartness. Mouthfeel is just outstanding, fairly light bodied with perfect carbonation that complements the flavor. This beer is comparable to Vitus and Unser Aventinus in every way- simply wonderful

Cloudy orange colored beer with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells of bruised banana and mildly of cloves. Mildly spicy but this is one strong banana beer.

Sweet and very spicy the clove missing in the smell ready hits hard in the taste. Mild alcohol burn but no alcohol taste. Tastes like banana with punkin pie spice.

Overall a nice Weizenbock but there are a few better.

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!
