3.5/5  rDev -15%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Cloudy; orangish; huge frothy white head; dissipates, but good lacing

Aroma: Cloves; banana peel; typical Bavarian wheat; sweet like a Bock

Taste: Good flavor right off; typical wheat beer flavor; a little thin for a Weizenbock, though; not too complex, but refreshing

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Great three finger white head, with an orangish and caramel colored body--Firm and sticky lacing.

Smells of banana, clove, and hints of metallic aromas.

Tastes like creamy banana pie, hints of vanilla, and even a flaky crust.

This is prickly upfront, creamy in the middle, and finishes mildly warm.

50cl bottle poured into Paulaner Seidel

BBE 04 May 2011

A- Medium amber yeasty hazy body with thick creamy 3 finger head. Head retention and lacing is average/good.

S- Spicy clove/ginger note with a touch of biscuit malt. Little banana.

T- Vanilla and cloves up front with a hint of biscuit sweetness lingering. Finish is light/semi dry. Very smooth, no real suggestion of alcohol content. Hefeweizen like, no real distinction to make it a weizenbock.

M- High carbonation, light body.

D- If you had told me this was a regular hefeweizen i would have believed you. Its tasty and has good weissbier characteristics but i dont pick up on any rich bock like qualities in the aroma/palate. Its on the lighter end of the spectrum but when i think of Ayinger weizenbock or Schneider hopfenweisse,it doesnt have the same level of spice, flavour intensity. Nevertheless a tasty brew!

Bottle purchased at Maruhn in Darmstadt, Hessen (Germany)

Pours a hazy caramel with a thick head that lingers until the very last sip.

The nose if full of melted butter, but also caramel notes and a distinct hop aroma.

That hop aroma carries right into the mouth. Though there is a distinctive wheat flavor, there is none of the spiciness I would expect with a hefe style. Rather, the flavors are well balanced with sweet caramel malts and a hoppy bitterness.

At times this beer seems to be a marriage between an American Pale Ale and a German Bock. Though a little syrupy in the mouthfeel, the flavors remain bright and surprising. A well crafted brew that stands out as unique amongst other German beers in this style.

Well done!
