Thanks to Kevin for this one. Apparently this is the "go-to" weizenbock, much like Weihenstephan owns the title for "go-to hefe". Haven't had much weizenbock experience in my life, so I'll have to see how this plays out. Brown and swampy looking from the pour, hazy and cloudy all the way through with a puffy, off-white head showing nice retention and solid lacing as the beer shrinks in the glass.

Bubblegum. Yeast. Banana. Clove. Apple skins. Mild dark fruits. Sound familiar? Smells almost like a hefeweisen on acid - only with less wheat and a stronger alcohol presence. Yes, yes, the alcohol is noticeable on the nose, but doesn't really hinder at all - it only adds a bit of phenol presence. As this one warms up, I start picking up some more unique notes; mild tartness, cherries, dry wheat, spices, and light caramel. Overall, very pleasing to my nostrils, and it smells much like I expected. The wheat definitely picks up the pace a bit more during the latter half, too.

Well, well, well. Whatever bit of wheat was missing in the aroma is more than compensated for in the taste. The first sip coats the palate with a heavy blanket of wheat; subtly sweet, dry, and refined. The bubblegum-banana combo follows closely behind, and the banana almost takes on a "rotten" or "overripe" flavor profile. I know that sounds gross, but trust me - it works well. Yeasty and hefe-like all around with spices coming at you left and right. Clove, coriander, orange zest, pith, and peel, with a light sprinkling of mild white pepper covering everything. In the end, some light fruitiness surfaces; mild banana and mixed berries. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation, giving a floaty kind of mouth feel.

Hm, I still think I prefer Weihenstephaner Vitus to this beer, but there's no denying that this is still some good stuff. I don't know if I'm well-versed enough in weizenbocks to accurately rank this one among the rest, but it was definitely tasty, and dangerously drinkable for being 8.2% ABV.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: a medium murky cloudy brownish color with a minimal half finger eggshell head. No glass lacing.

S: lots of fruits and spicy clove smells. Some sweet caramel and yeast is prominent.

T: Wow this is amazing. Yeasty flavors jump with some wheat and dark fruits. Cherry, raisins, banana, clove, caramel, and some slight floral hops. Finish comes back to the wheat and dark fruits but finishes dry and satisfying. Wow, fantastic.

M: Full, coating, perfect carbonation, hardly any alcohol for the abv.

O: this is a terrific beer, one I would never guess I would love so much since this is not my favorite style. A fantastic beer.

This is a must try and will now be a staple in my fridge. Awesome.

Thanks to kjyost for this one.

Poured from a 500ml bottle, bottled in 2004. Special aged release by the brewery.

Pours a light brown body the color of light cola; head starts thick but disappears in the blink of an eye. Dark plums and molasses are in the aroma. Flavor is a shell of what it could be but there are glimpses of what i know this beer is. Little carbonation and a bit of oxidation finish things off. Nice marketing ploy by the brewery but this should not be aged so long IMO.

4.59/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The pour produced a tawny brown body with a thick, chunky head. Spicy, estery aroma; banana and rye; clove-like. Big caramel and ripe dark fruit flavors; fruitcake rich; prunes and figs. Heavy body; thick and rich mouthfeel.

A decent look, but it's the very unique and powerful aroma that immediately draws you into this beer at first. And then the rich, powerful flavors grab a hold of you and won't let you go. The flavors are deep and complex, very intriguing with wild zig-zags of sugary sweet surprises all tempered with a tempered boozy edge and and most sublime bit of hop bitterness to temper the sweet peaks. The wheat really adds a nice fruity character to things. A nice hyper-hefeweizen/doppelbock synthesis.
