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 from a 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a a tulip glass. Now the most interesting part is not what came out if the bottle but what stayed in it. At some point I had stored the bottle on its side in a wine fridge (for 3 months after buying it) and found an exorbitant amount of yeast stuck to the side of the bottle. Now to me this is a good thing keeping natural unfiltered flavor with the brew especially the Bavarian style. Unlike any other beer this was a cloudy chocolate brown color. There was large amount of white head when poured violently from the bottle. Hints of chocolate malt taste similar to the color. Has the sweetness that accompanies bocks but also the breast wheat vibe. Has a good balance between wheat and malt with an elevated abv of 8.2% which is barely noticeable to the pAlate.
Don't think I've had a beer of this style before. It seems like American craft brewers would have their work cut out for them with this style.
