500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Pours a hazy dark brown making sure to get the yeast sediment out of the bottom of the bottle.

Smells of banana, clove, and bubblegum. Wonderful yeasty character. Little bit of grass in there as well and maybe just a faint hint of alcohol.

Taste begins with strong clove and banana changing to some dark fruit; plums and a pretty strong cherry flavor. A little bit of pipe tobacco comes towards the end finishing up with a passing taste of alcohol. Mouthfeel is smooth and a little sticky at the end.

Wow, this is an amazing beer. It really surprised me in that the alcohol is very well hidden and it is a truly refreshing beer. Wonderful combination of flavors going on. I'll have to pick up another bottle very soon.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Deep unfiltered reddish brown. The body has a nice sheen. Long lasting khaki head.

Smell: Yeast is the major player in this bottle fermented bock. Clove, vanilla and big fruity esters come to play. Plum and pear. Bouquet of Candied sugar, light caramel and bread from delicately roasted malts. I also pick up aromas of scotch and rum.

Taste: Sweet and soothing. Cola-like. Tart fruitiness. , orange and cherry. Finishes dry and grainy with notes of cocoa. Spicy.

Mouthfeel: This feels great in my mouth. It is much finer than other weizenbocks. It is almost liquer like. Silky and and smooth. Touch of grain and long finish. Spicy and tingly, slight touch of alcohol.

Overall: A phenomenal beer for a cold spring night. Would pair amazing with German cuisine.

Finally getting around to reviewing this thing. Ive had it a few times and loved every single time.

Poured into an Aventinus glass. Caramel body with white head. The head is reflective of the ABV compared to the hefeweizen head. I get load of clove out of the nose, a slightly spicy clove. The taste is loaded with banana and clove. Theres an insane balance between the clove and banana. Full feeling in the mouth, with the yeast flavors just taking over in the best way possible. Finishes chewy and amazing.

A - Pours a hazy garnet, with a frothy off-white head.

S - Loads of yeast, creamy banana, clove, sugary red grapes, bubblegum, gingersnaps, sour wheat, anise, dense bread.

T - Vinous acidity hit the edges of the tongue, gingerbread, vanilla, tangy yeast, bubblegum, banana, clove, brown sugar, caramel, cocoa.

M - Medium to full body, low carbonation,

There is alot going on in this beer. Very complex layer of flavors that actually go together very well. This is a hidden gem of a beer. If you've passed this up, pick it up next time.

Bottle to CBS snifter.

A: Murky-looking brown with golden transparent hues...a large soapy eggshell colored head retreats at a medium speed and leaves a bit of creamy lacing.

S: Fruity notes dominate, lots of wheaty tang and dark fruits mix with caramel, banana and spicy clove, very bready and malty with lots of wheat notes...ghost-like alcohol complements the fruity tones.

T: Yeast-like fruity esters, a touch of alcohol mixes with the spices and clove to create a rum-like sensation...very malty and bready..hint of caramel? Wheat comes though well.

MF: Tangy and a bit spicy, medium mouthfeel with a good sticky feel for a beer with this body...decent carbonation after a hard pour.

O: Surprised that I liked this one so much, its very drinkable and enjoyable with pleasant fruity overtones and miles of bready malts.
