4.3/5  rDev -0.9%

A: Clear and medium-brown with thin bubbly head (3/3)
S: Raisin dominates with a light acrid alcohol smell -- combined it’s almost like root beer(10/12)
T: Raisiny malt dominates at first, but after a couple sips, the flavor is very smooth--almost hard to believe it’s so dark (17/20)
M: Well-carbonated and wet throughout, only a little drying on sides of tongue after a few sips
(5/5)
O: An 8.2% beer that’s this drinkable? Sign me up. Really wish it were less expensive, but nobody’s perfect, and that’s not factoring into my score. (8/10)
43/50

4.71/5  rDev +8.5%

Cold euro bomber, with freshness date, into tulip

Appearance - Glowing opaque and dark brown, massive 2 finger dense head retains well, lots of lacing, looks fantastic

Smell - Smells like spicy banana bread! Delicious.

Feel/Taste - Creamy smooth medium-full body yet crisp and drinkable, plenty of gentle carb to keep things moving. Taste is like nose but more profound: Big, fruity, sweet, and yeasty up front with ripe banana, feint spiciness of clove, fresh baked bread maltiness, some wheaty twang with hints of lemon keep the sweetness in check, a hint of grassy hay. Flavor finishes long with a very slight alcohol warmth, though alcohol is integrated perfectly with no perceived flavor/astringency.

Overall - This beer is an absolutely masterpiece. It is practically liquid spiced banana bread! It's a marvel that the 8.2% ABV is so well integrated, and this beer comes off as so crisp, refreshing, and drinkable still - dangerously drinkable. Truly a world class beer that I very much enjoyed.

Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 12.29.13.

A: Opaque dark brown. Very thick looking. Big, fluffy head.

S: Banana, cloves.

T: Roasty banana, with cloves, malt, and alcohol burn.

M: Creamy.

O: The alcohol is not hidden very well as it is with other Weizenbocks. It almost overwhelms the flavors. It's good, but there are better Weizenbocks.

4.75/5  rDev +9.4%

A - Soft, hazy brown body. Three inches of heavy, off-white head. Great retention. Pretty, cascading carbonation during the pour.

S - Strong with dark fruits (fig), yeast, and clove. Slight grassy notes, milk chocolate, and maybe leather. Intense and wonderful.

M - Fully-bodied with a slightly heavy finish, but not too sticky (trace of stickiness on the tongue after each sip).

T - Lost of sweet, dark fruits. Coffee grounds and caramel. Grain from the wheat. Subtle grassy hops in the finish.

O - Easy to drink for 8.2% abv and pretty damn tasty.
