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.

Bottle from Hyvee in Council Bluffs, IA
"4880" is the bottled on date
Poured into a Weihenstephaner weizen glass

Pours a tall (>3cm) head of lightly burnt tan bubbles, very small in size, creating a dense meringue-like, frothy head. Gradually recedes to a persistent head throughout, surprising and impressive due to high ethanol content of the beer. Leaves no lacing on sides of glass. Body is a dark mahogany stain color, or gem-brown if you prefer. In the light, this shows off some dark ruby highlights. Semi-hazy with visibly active carbonation.

Aroma is deeply of toasted malts and butterscotch, with some banana bread in heavy syrup. Quite different from other weizenbocks I've tried, but quite enjoyable.

Taste begins with rich, syrupy barley maltiness, which gradually transitions to a deep caramelized sugar and toasted malt base that lingers throughout. Very mild, in the background, are roasted flavors, contributing a bit of twang alongside the wheat. Bit of spiciness on back of tongue, indicating subtle hop usage or ethanol. Lingering finish of very mild bitterness and more subtle caramelized sugar flavors. Overall very nice, but would have enjoyed some more banana esters and, possibly, spices.

Medium-bodied with a moderate to moderate-high level of carbonation. In the beer, this doesn't come across as aggressive due to the heft of the body. Instead, the resulting mouthfeel is foamy, creamy, and somewhat pillowy. Finish is dry
