I love Belgium style of ales. I also love bourbon barrel aging. This is an excellent example of both. Full taste that feels good in your mouth and looks good. Good head that stays well without being excessive. I was pleasantly surprised to find a brew from a brewing company I hadn't heard of or tried that was this good. I will definitely be looking for more!

A- Poured a 22 ounce bomber into a Weizen glass, great head retention over a dark ale. The head maintains a creaminess that is hard to come by.
S- Not sure if otherworldly is a fair term to use in a review (at least not if I want to seem partial, which in this case I don't) but this beer is a 100 in the scent category. Bourbon is perfectly captured in the scent department, with amazing vanilla being the most pronounced. Upon further review I feel like I'm sensing nutmeg and cinammon. (And I have a crap sense of smell)
T- I've enjoyed the benefit of bourbon barrels on stouts before but this may even surpass that. The vanilla and bourbon are amazing in this beer, really nice caramel sweetness as well.
M- Extremely smooth with a nice sticky presence from the caramel and vanilla flavor components. Perfect carbonation is present.
O- This was a sensational beer. The weizenbock is as good or better a way to deliver the bourbon flavors than a stout. I wasn't sure what to expect with this (other than it would be good because Central Waters was involved) but it has exceeded my expectations.
