A 500 mL bottle from the Boise Co-op, bottled in 11/2011. I've had this one plenty of times before, but an finally getting around to reviewing it. Poured into a tulip glass.
Pours a brown, mahogany color with over an inch of fluffy, light khaki head; moderate retention and a small amount of lacing.
The aroma is of clove, wheat, banana, light lemon and orange citrus, some caramel, date, raisin, and even a bit of toasted sugar. Regardless, the more traditional wheat and clove aromas dominate the nose.
The flavor brings out similar notes, with more emphasis on the caramel and darker fruits. A bit of apple pulls through, and there’s still the noticeable lemon and orange citruses. Banana, clove, wheat, straw, and a bit of earthen grass are all present as well.
Mouthfeel is relatively light bodied and very lively from the carbonation. A refreshingly clean finish keeps one coming back, and the absence of alcohol from the flavor or finish is also commendable.
Overall, a great weizenbock made even better by its wide availability and relative affordability. Being a bit more of an obscure style, I can’t say I’ve yet tasted a better one.

Poured a dark ruby color, the color of a British style porter, around 30 to 40 SRM, with a thick, white, long-lasting head and plenty of yeast in suspension. Creamy mouthfeel. Rich, malty sweetness with a mildly tart finish. Aromas of clove and grapes and berries. No hop aroma, mild to no hop bitterness, mild to no alcohol. This is the benchmark for a wheat dopplebock. Rich, complex and fruity.
