look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy tootsie roll brown with a toasted course head. Gentle pour produces a lot of head. Very unique look.

S: Wow...amazing complexity. Plenty of fruity aromas mixed in with a very rotund wheat. Mmmm...spices, a little clove and sweet toasted malts. And I know I'm not picking everything up. Theres more that my barbaric senses just can't place. Absolutely amazing. I'm looking forward to this.

T: Mind boggling. Any brew dork can make a beer with tons of flavors but it takes a master to balance them and make them all work. A wheat foundation with strong fruits, bananas in particular dominate with spices, clove and others (I think I detect cinnamon but that can't be right, can it?) Sweet dark malts with an unidentified hop bring a complexity and balance that you don't see everyday in a beer. I am truly impressed and a little in awe.

M: Very wet with a medium to thick mouthfeel. It lets you know your effing around with something that has teeth.

D: Jesus, it's 8.2% alcohol but doesn't quite act it. A clear sign of a well balanced, masterful brew.

Overall a stunning brew worthy of your attention. My only disappointment is the lack of a bottling or expiration date. Since its bottle conditioned I really want to know how old it is so I can make this tasting the bar to compare future tastings with. Oh well.

4.66/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - Poured with a four-finger, creamy and lightly tan head. Lots of lacing, and dissipates quickly. The color is a dark burnt orange. Very cloudy, can't really see through it. Very bubbly.

S - Strong wheat notes. Malty and some sweet dark fruits.

T - Sweet dark fruits at the front, followed by a malty middle. The finish is wheaty. Not bitter at all.

M - Medium heavy to thick in body. Alcohol and carbonation burn are minor.

O - Really like the taste of this one. I like the maltiness and sweetness. Wheat is not necessarily my favorite taste, but it works here. My favorite weizenbock so far.
