A classic version of the style-- tasty...tasty...tasty.

Pours a cloudy ruby/mahogany brown into the glass with a big head that settles to a heavy film. Minimal spotty lace.

Smells wonderful. Cloves, banana, caramel, fruitiness. A wonderful beer. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Taste is gentle, no overpowering cloves like some others in the family. Nice comfortable warmth from the alcohol.

Not a beer that I would have multiple of in one session... but certainly one that I crave and enjoy the 16.9 oz portion down to the last drop.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pour is cloudy, hazy dark amber with a monster 3+ finger off white pillow head. Great spotting and lacing throughout. Nose is incredible. Typical weizen characteristics with bubblegum, green apples, banana and cloves. Taste follows the nose quite closely. Big malt notes with a nice touch of the dark notes which is a bit different than the hefe. A hint of fig on the end and a great complex blend which makes it hard to sit down. Hides the 8.2% ABV well. Feels is nice, but a bit watery. Good carbonation aand a bit lively on the tongue. Overall- A great effort and tastes like a hefe on steroids! Great fruit notes on the front, complex throughout. Love the apple quality and the blend of malt bomb and adequate hops. The fig hit was also a welcome surprise. Very solid brew that I will hit again-

Consumed 5/11/12

Appearance: Hazy brown/dark amber body - mostly clear - fizzy, off-white head that fades to a nice ring but leaves minimal lacing

Smell: Holy banana bubblegum, Batman! - unexpectedly yeasty with a ton of ripe bananas, bubblegum, and clove - below the cloud of yeast, malts are actually interesting - wheat, roasted malts, chocolate, and some darker fruits, and some lighter fruits - very fruity overall

Taste: Yeasty dark fruits, dusted with chocolate - clove, banana, and a ton of fruity esters - some alcohol - malts are on the sweet side, lots of caramelized sugar, a little roasted, some chocolate, lots of fruits (especially raisins) - funky wheat, very lightly bitter, borderline sugary, some spices - at room temperature, the flavor really starts to become dominated by alcohol and yeast (not ideal)

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth, nicely carbonated, a touch of chewiness

Overall: Very interesting, not amazing

This is definitely different than I expected. But then again, this is my first Weizenbock... This kind of tastes like a yeasty, more alcoholic German Hefeweizen with some touches of funk and chocolate. Interesting, but it's a little too yeasty with too much alcohol flavor, especially by the end of the bottle.

Pours cloudy dark chocolate brown with a tan head with lots of tiny bubbles. The head dissipates slowly, leaving very little lacing on the side of the glass. It appears to be well carbonated. There are smells of sweet malt, esters such as banana and bubblegum, and alcohol. There are other dark fruits such as raisin and prunes in the aroma as well. The flavor reflects the taste. There are sweet malts, fruit, and bubblegum flavors. There is some alcohol in the taste, but it's not very strong for a beer above 8% ABV. There yeast is also in the taste. There's a mild aftertaste. The body is light with abundant carbonation. The carbonation helps chase away the aftertaste, making this very easy to drink. Overall, this is a fantastic beer with high drinkability.

This pours a cloudy amber brown with creamy foam. The aroma is slightly malty with some bubblegum and cloves as well as banana notes. The flavor is more of the same—I get some bubblegummy banana and clove maltiness as I sip it. Consistent finish. Tasty!

Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: Pours an extremely hazy dark brown color with an incredible yeast haze. Didn't pour any head whatsoever, unfortunately, so I'm docking points.

After much agitation, I was able to get a one-finger offwhite color head with poor retention and lacing.

S: Plenty of banana, cloves, and bubblegum with an additional twist of caramel/toffee and some dark fruit. Unique, to say the least.

T: Aside from the typical weizen-esque ester flavors (banana, clove, green apple), this blends in a darker malt note, giving it a more savory feel and taste over a hefe or even a dunkel. The finish is crisp and very fruity, without being exceedingly sweet or tart. Decent complexity and balance, with excellent drinkability and no palpable alcohol taste.

M: Very well carbonated. The yeast gives the body some heft but never weighs the tongue down with excessive astringency, which is exactly what this kind of beer should do. Slight finishing dryness.

O: I expected this to be excellent...and it is. I tend to prefer my weizens to have a lighter malt profile, but the fact that I still enjoyed this immensely is a testament to its quality.

Burgundy-colored body with brown burnt hues. Huge immeasurable head that lasted almost forever in my Schneider Weisse weizen glass. Thick, meringue-like in consistency. 4.5

Subdued nose with clove, dark fruity malts (tart cherry/blackberry), mild fried banana, and a smidge of bubble gum. Pretty nice. Round aroma. 4.0

Tartness in the flavor. Very fruity with more dark fruit notes like black cherry, pomegranate, and blackberry meld together with juicy banana and clove notes. Nice tart and bitter finish, which is lip-smacking and overall refreshing. Vinous qualities. Totally redeeming. Love the red fruit qualities. 4.5

Aventinus still has some waking carb. Medium body that isn't cloying in any way. Smooth and velvety. 4.0

All-time greatest weizenbock to date. Would love to try this with some age. And, I can't wait to try my Aventinus Eisbock. I suggest you travel down this path. 4.5
