I have been hunting down this beer for a while; probably there aren’t many bottles still available.
It produced a big stomp after releasing the cork. Amber golden color with a thick off-white head with apparent carbonation, great retention and leaving some laces.
Wonderful intriguing aroma, subdue notes of banana with honey, cloves, overripe oranges, peaches soaked in rum and mango chutney.
Flavor of wood, Cointreau liquor, subdue banana, caramel malt, pine, wheat, honey, spices and Weiss yeast. Interesting that I also got some floral and herbal hops. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with good carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv is harmonic with the overall beer.
Excellent Weizenbock, bold flavor with great complexity. It would be interesting to compare it to the German version.

Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.
A collaboration between two solid brewers that somewhat alters/updates a classic style? I'm in. This stuff pours a cloudy sunrise amber-brass topped by over a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grass, dry wheat, light clove (I think), and a couple twists of orange. The taste brings in more of the same, with a slightly fresher wheat component and a bit more clove. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, I wasn't the biggest fan of this stuff. It's not really bad, per se, just not my cup o' tea, what with the grassy hops not really fully melding with the mild citrus and wheat. I dunno, something like that...
