500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.
A: A three finger eggshell white head sits on top of a murky dark brown body. There some floaties and yeast visible. I poured it like a hefeweizen with the yeast on top....hope I did that right...oh well.
S: Huge shot of bubble gum, bread and clove. Some underlying caramel as well that I imagine will become more pronounced as this warms up. I’m also getting something reminiscent of root beer.
T: Mmm...nice. Starts watery and light then brings on a full wave of flavor mid-palate and in the finish. More flavor than a standard hefeweizen. You get all the bubble gum, bread and clove plus sweet caramel notes. There’s also a vinous quality I’m having a hard time defining.
M: Watery at first, then some alcohol when the flavor kicks in. Finishes somewhat dry but that just makes you want another sip. Medium to heavy body and carb is soft.
O: Not my favorite Weizenbock (Vitus), but a really nice option for when I want something more interesting than a standard hefeweizen.

Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
