500 ml bottle into weizen glass, 4880 bottle code. Pours very hazy/cloudy dark brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, raisin, plum, fig, date, banana, chocolate, brown sugar, dark bread, molasses, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with incredible complexity and balance of big dark/bready/roasted malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, toffee, toast, raisin, plum, fig, date, banana, chocolate, brown sugar, dark bread, molasses, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, raisin, plum, fig, date, banana, chocolate, brown sugar, dark bread, molasses, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and robustness of dark/bready/roasted malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible weizenbock style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/roasted malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

7.3% ABV for this batch.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, caramel, and banana aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and wheat flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice sweet banana flavor.
