Poured into a 13 oz tulip. Pours a dark brown, with a half inch of off white head, some sediment in the bottom, with some lace. Smell is clove, banana, bread, dark fruits, and burnt brown sugar. Taste is all of that, very sweet and a little stale. Body is medium, enough life, dry, and for me not very drinkable. This is not my favorite style and not my favorite example of the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tall pint glass, pilsner type, color is dense copper to light brown, head is tan and very dense and thick - very nice looking dunkel weizen.

Smell is light banana, clove, hints of yeast, bready and light grain. Slight phenolic notes mixed with very feint toasted or light roasted malt.

Taste is smooth, nice wheat and light roast malt overtaken by the banana, clove, yeast, bread mix. Solid bitterness but no overriding hop flavor. Nice sweetness mixed in to balance the stronger yeast flavors and mild bitterness, clean flavors outside of the weizen as expected from a lagered type brew.

Mouthfeel is very good for many weizens i've tried, not to strong on the tongue, good balance nice lingering sweetness.

Overall, very tasty, great beverage - some weizenbocks in the past I've tried have not hit the right note but this is one I'd get a full case of.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a hazy brown color with a nice thick tan head. The head fades very slowly over time to give a small level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of brown bread. These bready aromas are mixed with some dark fruit aromas of cherry and prune. Mingling with all these aromas is a very light alcohol aroma. Very nice blend overall.

Taste – The flavors start out with a more malty and bready flavor. The flavors quickly change in nature, in which they sweeten at the expense of the malty due to flavors of sweeter fruit of cherry and prune entering the taste. These fruit tastes lose their sweetness however and begin lightly sour at the end the taste. As the fruit flavors begin to lightly sour, there is also the entrance of some spicy and yeasty flavors as well which when arriving with a lightly boozy flavor leave an intriguing warming taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just above average with the carbonation level just below normal. Overall both suit the beer well with its sweeter then more sour flavors.

Overall – A nice, slightly tart (but not too sour) weizenbock with a nice warming feel the is very pleasant to sit back and sip. I find this one a quite nice brew.
