Brown in color and malty in taste. All of the full bodied rich flavors of a Doppelbock with the signature banana and clove esters of a Weizen.

Well I wasn't really in the mood for a weissbier but had to try this because it was the seasonal. I was very surprised at just how bold this weizenbock was. The unfiltered amber cloud was nice and gave a great head with enough retention time to make almost annoying. I kept having to wipe it out of my mustache. I was recently over my cold and really enjoying being able to smell again. This smell was really powerful. Lots of esters (banana, clove, currant). The taste was just as wonderful supplemented by a great aroma. The mouthfeel was stingy like I expected and the mouthfeel really was full. I have never found this particular style to be all that drinkable and this was certainly no exception. But I don't think this is the kind of beer you buy to gulp.

Had this on-site. So, this is a bock beer that has a weizen yeast. They had just brought this beer out, as it's their November special. It pours a brown color with a tall head that has nice retention and leaves a little lacing on the 0.5L glass. The aroma is malty but also has the banana and clove character from the wheat yeast. The flavor is malty with very little hop presence being noticed. Has a full body, but not too thick and the drinkability is nice. The alcohol is somewhat apparent.
