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.

4.14/5  rDev -1.2%

$ 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.
Lacing none
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.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a large, creamy white head, good retention with good lacing. Aroma is huge banana esters with caramel and vanilla nose, light bread and biscuit malt. Light noble hops and a warm alcohol character as it warms. Flavor is lightly sweet with bready and slightly buttery notes. A light hop bitterness. Banana esters and a dry finish. Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation.

Rich malty head on the pour. Scents of lemon, raspberry, and dried cloves. Cloudy strawberry color. Lots of lacing down the glass. Fruity tartness on the palate. Low carbonation and low hops, as a great bock should. Easy to drink. Hard to put down. Not a session beer, even though I'd love it to be one. It can be quaffed until you are oblivious. Love this one!

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big banana, orange peel, pear, apple, bubblegum, white grape, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester and balanced malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big banana, orange peel, pear, apple, bubblegum, wheat, bread, light honey, light clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of banana, pear, apple, orange peel, bubblegum, wheat, bread, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome weizenbock. All around great complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast ester and balanced malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

The beer comes in a beautiful hazy amber orange, almost looking like a DIPA except for a tight white head.

The aroma is more hefeweizen. Sweet banana, citrus, peel, clove spice, phenolic plastic or nail polish. A bright caramel candy sweetness throughout.

The flavor follows, but with more of a deep rich weizenbock characteristic. There’s ripe banana, a slightly toasted bread, lots of spicy clove, wheat, and hints of vanilla on the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium plus and quite creamy.

A wonderful brew. While it is not my favorite in the style, (Schneider Weisse Tap 6 is), but it is still a substantial and tasty bigger brother of the hefeweizen.
