Pours a clear deep amber with a thin, fizzy white head. The head dissipates quickly and leaves a meager little bit of lacing. The aroma is pretty weak, as well, with only the faintest hints of malty sweetness. The flavor profile is also mild, indistinct, and heavily leaning towards the malt-side of the flavor profile. It does have a nice weight and thickness to the body, and a silky feeling.

SAmpling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Label says drink by august 2013.

The beer pours a clear mahogany color with some ruby highlights on the edges of the glass. Head foams and fades immediately after the pour. Nothing on the surface.
Aroma is some fruit, cherries and pear, mixing with spices of clove and maybe some anise. I also get some bready yeast and a little wheat twanginess.
The first sip reveals an average body with very fine and tingly carbonation. texture is smooth and the beer drinks very easy.
Flavor is sweet malt with some caramel and fruit (again cherries). I also get a little spice with some cloves, but no hops and the booze is well hidden too. Finally, the beer is drying on the finish.
An easy drinking bomber, that is on the sweeter side of beers, but not cloying or candylike.
Interesting brew and tasty. I wish I had a 2nd bottle.

A very economical bomber at TW of an enticing style that I haven't tried before, so let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a strong molasses smell coupled with black licorice. Pours into my SAPP with a thin tan head on top of a birch beer color. Taste is heavy in a thick syrupy mouthfeel up front followed by a balanced spicy maltiness that has a very dull hop bitterness in the after taste. A tasty brew, would go great with any food dish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a dark amber with admirable fizzy mouthfeel and plenty of foam in the Ciney snifter. Tangy and rich with malt. Spicy nose with a hint of flowers and cinnamon.

Sweet malt and a spicy edge of cloves. This has that dark, fruity edge with a wisp of bitterness around the finish. Tastes a little of alcohol but in a playful way. Some caramel but more of a dark roasted flavor.

Not overly sweet and exceptionally drinkable, though it could use a little more sparkle with all the malt. This is such an interesting style. It's sort of the opposite of a West Coast IPA. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market - Shoreline in north Seattle.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-brown with rather modest head. Nose was timid, even after warming a little, and gave some bready notes and maybe a hint of dark fruit. Palate had a good malty/toasty presence with good carbonation, but I thought I missed out on some of the more yeasty and wild flavors from many other weizenbocks that I've had (compared to just bocks). Wish more brewers would attempt this style in the U.S.

I poured this into a pilsner glass. The beer was an amber color with minimal head.

Aroma sweet malt, some caramel, and some dark fruit.

caramel, chocolate, dates in the taste. A little muted.

Medium-bodied, sweet.

OK, not great. I would drink this again if someone bought it for me.

Clear reddish brown colored ale with no real head creation.

Smells malty and spicy with the scent of mostly banana and chocolate. Scents of smoke and band-aid. Lesser scents of brown sugar and cookie dough.

Starts out sweet and malty. Sweet tea flavor. Cake batter taste with a mild bitterness. Chocolate banana flavor.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an OK version of the style but I have had better.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

22oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A: Red-orange int color. Surprising clarity, not expected for the style. Two fingers of creamy tan head retain fairly well. Rough rings of lacing.

S: Coarse wheat. Hints of toasted crust and brown cocoa. Peppery. Raspberry jam.

T: Coarse wheat creates a rough cereal taste. Hints of nuts and cocoa. Slight pepper. Hint of alcohol. Raspberry ester. Rough wheaty finish with hints of chocolate.

M: Somewhat fluffy and creamy, but watery and lacking in character overall. Forceful seltzery carbonation. Light alcohol heat.

O: This beer needs work. It is seriously lacking in body, and sorely missing yeast character. Just very bland. Maybe I'm being a little too hard on it, having recently had the Ferrari of the style in Schneider Aventinus, but this did nothing for me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Pours a medium clear dark brown with small head. Carbonation on the lower side for a weizenbock. Minimal fruitiness in aroma, actually not much aroma at all. The small aroma is earthy and nutty with a note of sweet cherries. Burnt sugar and nuts predominates the taste. Not much fruit but a subdued sweetness with a kiss of roasted cherries. Well balanced, but not a huge flavor bomb as one usually gets with this style. The lingering finish is nutty burnt wood and marshmallow.
