500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass by freshness date.

A:
Dark ruby brown color with thick fluffy and creamy tan head, it slowly sinks with great retention to half-finger of everlasting foamy layer cover on top along with stickiness laces here and there. The carbonation level looks at medium to high.

S:
Blending nicely by mellow ripe banana, plum, raisin, hint of liquorice, bubblegum, note of floral, phenolic spice and clove, malt is underlying with some crackery and roasted note.

T:
Big fruity esters remind of banana, plum, prune and raisin. Bubblegum sweetness and caramel poke through the taste buds alongside with subtle citrus. Wheat and barley malt lay as base to cater the others. Pinch of clove spice and phenol add more intricacy yet drinkability until the end that mingles with slight but long trail of hop bitterness also with some tartness from yeast strain.

M:
The body is full with super smooth mouthfeel from fine crispness and carbonation. The sweetness dries up the palate, very pleasantly dry.

O:
Maybe the best Weizenbock available out there, it has an exceptional quaffable quality. Very tasty, I can feel no harm of alcohol during drink but yes it’s still there lurking.

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

Aroma: Bold, intriguing aroma. Vanilla may be the main aroma. Sweet bananas, clove, some darker fruit flavors in the background as plums and grapes. Mild alcohol and mild hop bitterness.

Appearance: Deep copper. Pours a nice and tall white creamy head. Mostly clear, but a closer inspection shows lots of small and large particles circulating around the glass. Amazing retention and tons of lacing.

Taste: Bold and complex, wow. Spicy black pepper, dark fruits, raisins and dates. Lots of wheat, grains, and some residual yeast.

Mouthfeel: Stinging carbonation. Creamy feel, but it finishes dry. Medium body.

Overall: Delicious. Bold. Complex. Surprisingly easy to drink, goes down much too fast. Not too sweet, and just a little bitter.

Notes: This bottle was 1-2 years old.

look ~ this one pouts a medium brown with some nice orange high-lights in it. the brew is very opaque. head is large: cream-colored, moussy, and long-lived; it rises to a decent height and falls at an average pace with little lacing. some nice visible carbonation.

smell ~ a really pleasant, strong aroma. the grainbill has some rich melanoidins (prunes, grapes, etc) and wheat. the yeast is filled with spices (cloves, vanilla) and some fruit (banana). A little bit of alcohol. No real hop presence.

taste ~ nicely complex and still light. the melanoidin on the grain-bill comes out a bit stronger on the palate, this is strongly reminiscent of prunes/plums with a bit of grape in mix. It also has some nice grain wheatiness. no darker roasty notes. the yeast flavor is very similar to a hefe (banana/clove/some black pepper on the finish) with some more vanilla in the mix. Overall, it tasted like a milder dunkelweizen with some stronger bock notes. No real hops, a light hint of alcoholic fussels (floral)

feel ~ light body with high carbonation. this lightness dries out the finish and also helps keep the complexity from getting too muddled. A bit of an acidic pinch and alcohol heat on the finish that give an interesting feel with the spiciness.

overall, I really enjoy this brew. I find that this brew is a little more Hefeweizen like than some others of this style. I find it one of those complex-without-being-too-muddled brews that I love because it achieves a great balance.

this one is the grand-daddy of weizenbocks and it richly deserves the title.

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.
