3.98/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a tight, white head. Decent head retention.

Aroma is like an amped up hefeweizen, not exactly what I expect in a Weizen-bock. Ripe banana, clove, some vanilla. Bready wheat, slight biscuit and a slight bit of alcohol.

Flavor is grainy wheat, some Pils malt, banana, bubblegum, clove. Sweet up front and mid palate, moderately sweet and mildly tart towards the finish. Low hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall an amped up hefeweizen rather than a Weizenbock. I would expect some deep, toasted malt flavors and melanoidins to accompany the hefeweizen profile. Still a well made and tasty beer.

Pours a murky honey gold with a 2 inch foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy chunks of lace slowly slide down the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, spices, and some pepper-like aromas. There is a slight fruity note that I am getting more as the beer warms as well. Taste is quite sweet and is of wheat, banana, yeast, and some very nice spice flavors in the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a lightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is very drinkable and very tasty.

A- Pours a hazy straw yellow into my Ithaca tulip. Very cloudy with tons of yeast floating around. The carbonation really bubbles and comes alive! Started with a three finger head, but no lacing left behind. A nice white cloud of foam floats ontop as it fades away.

S- Banana, allspice, cloves, black pepper and a light wheaty nose. Some hints of bubblemint gum. The flavors are all there as expected, just not as over powering and upfront as I was hoping for.

T- Follows the nose to a tee! Banana, black pepper, cloves, fresh ground allspice, and lovely yeast. Really sparkly on the tongue. Nice underlying fruity sweetness.

M- Nice carbontion. Sweet fruit but leaves the mouth clean and crisp. Nothing new or over the top, but nice.

O- Perfect beer for a warm spring night. Tons of fruity banana and spice, excellent carbonation! I'd like to try this with a 1/4 shot of spiced rum!

A wheat bock ale with a fluffy head, light bodied, and tastes as good as it looks. Sit back, relax, and indulge on a smooth fruity splash of malts. A bit of frothy carbonation, a tang of yeast, and what most like to say—banana sweetness. Excellent beer to sip and enjoy, and probably the best Wheat Bocks that I’ve ever laid my palate to.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A nice good pour, controlled produces a real soapy off white head that doesn't stick around much. Body looks classic unfiltered, murky brown, lots of cola carbonation bubbles on the sides, some nice looking elevator music on this too. No collar practically even with a little bottle rinse and top up.

MMM this nose is nice. Fruity orange and dense wheat chew, a little bit of hot clove and muted black pepper. Smells really delicious. I like this pepper angle.

First taste on the palate sports a somewhat thin body, but a very melted buttery sensation and feel. Light wheat sense, very carbonated almost too gaseous but luckily not. Real nice bouquet doesn't translate too much to the palate though. Citrus angle seems faint, masked by much of the carbonated feel.

Overall not too bad, refreshing, a little soda pop like though for my tastes.

A 500ml bottle poured to a Weizen Glass

A- Hazy straw yellow, full of carbonation with a 3 finger fluffy white head.

S- Orange, lemon, banana, come first and come big. Big yeast characteristics and subtle dark fruits and alcohol on the finish.

T- Leathery on the front tongue, with a big ultra fruit splash the back. Some caramel malts sneak in with the fruitiness. Just an all around delicious tasting beer.

M- Light bodied, crisp, nice and fizzy on the tongue, easy to drink.

O- Up there with the best wheat beers ive ever tasted, this is a special beer that everyone should enjoy.

4.33/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a pint into a Belgian wheat glass.

Appearance: A very hazy orange. One finger head that falls quickly to leave some spotty lace, not much lace at all.

Smell: First thing that comes to mind is fresh baked bread or fresh biscuits. Very yeasty sweet, grains but no hops at all.

Taste: Spot on like the smell. Breads and grains all day.

Mouth: Creamy, Molasses. Carb is medium. Bitterness is very very low. Smooth very easy to drink.

Overall: WOW what a good beer. I never had a wheat bock before; wow is about all I can. This was a very good pick up at the beer shop today. PICH UP THIS BEER. You will not be let down. Great summer beer, bring on the summer sun.

Cheers

Cloudy, pale, brownish-orange color, with a towering head of sudsy foam. The head settles unevenly, and it looks like what you'd see flying over snow covered mountains. The nose is not that spicy or sweet, much milder than expected, with touches of lemon, banana, and yeasty goodness.

Tangy fruit up front with a banana pancake like sweetness building toward the back of the tongue. A nice flash of alcohol reveals some strength but it quickly hides away. This is a pretty tasty treat, though not super drinkable as the sweetness lingers a bit. The mouthfeel is somewhat light with a silky foaminess as well.

A very fine beer. To me it stayed more true to a Hefeweizen flavor with just added sweetness, whilst other examples of Weizenbock I've tried were a bit different. Recommended.
