3.86/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - A slight partial finger's worth of slightly late to develop audibly fizzy medium khaki colored head with a slightly darker brown swirl mixed in... Limited to no retention... The lacing is limited with only a bit of splotchy lacing and thin collar... The color is medium to dark brown teetering on mahogany... There is a slight murkiness / haziness to this brew... A bit of light leaks in around the edges... This beer has an assertive and inviting appearance...

S - A nice very "Belgiany" nose... Belgian yeast... Brown sugar... A slight booziness... A hint of bubblegum... A hint of banana as well.... Lots of depth and complexity... A very appealing aroma...

T - The nose didn't lie one bit... Belgian yeast... Loads of brown sugar... Hints of chocolate... Banana... Bubblegum... Perhaps even a slight berry character buried way beneath the surface...

M - On the lighter side of full bodied... Rather lush... A bit sticky... Limited carbonation... Coats the entire the evenly... The finish has a slightly chalky texture..

D - A big assertive brew that shouldn't be taken lightly... Another welcome addition to the Weyerbacher Anniversary collection... A sipper with loads of character and complexity... Dangerously quaffable given the 11+% ABV... I can recommend without hesitation and will have no problem polishing off the rest of my 4 pack...

4.01/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Tasted 27 May 2014.

Pours a murky deep brown with rusty edges. Half a finger of yellowish head, gone pretty fast, okay lacing. Not all that appealing.

Smell is delightful. Rich fruity esters, combining the banana bread of a hefeweizen with the darker fruits of a Belgian quad or strong dark ale. Deep, full, potent, varied, and just delicious.

Taste has much the same character that the smell does, but it's brought down by the bite of the alcohol. Yes, I know this is a high-ABV beer, but it'd be better if it had all the same flavors without the pinch in the finish. Otherwise, it's really nice. Fruity, again with bananas and some stone fruit (combo of plums and peaches), and some tobacco. Yummy.

Feel is fine. Pretty heavy, carbonation a little on the low side. But good enough to handle the flavor explosion.

Very tasty, with only small off elements in the taste from the alcohol. Deliciously fruity and strong, like a jacked-up darkened hefeweizen. Good stuff.

3.36/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Cloudy brown, good head for a high ABV.

Smell: Nice banana sweetness! My favorite weizenbock aroma.

Taste: Sweet fruitiness dominates. Banana, grape, apple. Very boozy. Not too pleased after the aroma.

Overall: I love weizenbocks so picked up this one from Weyerbacher. Started out strong with the look and smell, but the taste was a disappointment. Just too much alcohol, and the grape/apple flavors remind me of high gravity malt liquors rather than weizenbock. Bummer.
