A-a murky brown with sediment in the bottom and a thing layer of light tan head

S-smell is full of banana followed by bready malt, caramel, and a bit of spice

T-taste is similar to the smell with sweet banana, wheaty malt, light dark fruits, and a bit of spice. Alcohol is very well hidden for 11%.

M-medium body, medium carbonation, sweet fruity finish

Overall a good take on the style and well hidden alcohol makes this a very enjoyable beer.

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a dark brown color and a murky, muddy texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that dissipated quickly. Not much lacing at all.

S: A decent enough aroma of malt, wheat, and that bubblegum quality.

T: Tasted of wheat, first and foremost, the bubblegum quality, a sugary element, and a hint of malt. A bit on the boozy side, especially in the finish. Not a bad flavor, but a tad on the off balance.

M: A fair amount of carbonation with a somewhat smooth finish (aside from the booziness of it). Medium-bodied.

O: An interesting take on the weizenbock. A bit uneven, but worth a shot.

12oz. bottle poured into Weyerbacher tulip. Bottled on 7/1/13.

A - Pours a dark brown chestnut color. Shows serious cloudiness on the stream to the glass, but this isn't nearly as apparent once it gets there. Just under a half finger of eggshell colored head holds steady for the duration. Tiered lacing paints the interior of the glass.

S - Sweet candied nuts, fig, and serious brown sugar. The combination of booze and fruit creates a bananas foster aroma. Extremely rich aroma, but I guess that was to be expected from a Weizenbock north of 11%.

T - Not overwhelmingly or cloyingly sweet as I anticipated. Nice, delicate wheat character along with a whole fruit bowl of other flavors. Some rich, shoo-fly pie maltiness on the back end. Banana stands out amongst the complex flavors. The alcohol goes almost entirely unnoticed. Well done.

M - Smooth with a surprisingly middle of the road body. Easier to drink than most of the other, lower ABV, Weizenbocks I have tried.

O - Weyerbacher is always creative with their anniversary series beers and an 11% Weizenbock fits the bill. This beer was complex and flavorful without being cloyingly sweet. The alcohol was well hidden and I wanted another after my first. Well done. Among my favorites in the series thus far.

4.05/5  rDev +6.9%

Appearance: dark brown, not quite opaque. Cola highlights. Decent size tan head, especially given the high abv.
Smell: dark fruits and yeast. I would have guessed I was sniffing a quad if I didn't know better.
Taste: very nice. Dark fruit. Nice malty backbone. Some spice and fruit blossoms in the finish.
Overall: kudos to Weyerbacher. Always something new and interesting in their anniversary brews.

A quality brew from a quality brewer. I stopped by the brewery and picked up a growler of this stuff. The mouthfeel was a little thick for me. It has a decent aroma and crisp carbonation along with a good taste that lingers on your palate. I had several glasses of this stuff and enjoyed each one. The ABV is hidden fairly well. The beer seems to have hints of banana, clove and dark fruit. overall I like it.

Bottom Line: Decent offering from the Easton boys.
