22oz bomber poured into a tulip. 2011green waxed bottle.

Pours a hazy amber orange color with a small white head.nose is all bannana and clove.very hefe like.

Taste is mellow and fruity, it has a Cheddar flavor which is nice and a nice sweet finish. The flavor is really quite good, I like it a lot.

Poured nto an Aventinus glass a slightly hazed orange infused tea color with a thinner white head atop.A mix of tart green apple and spiced phenols,the alcohol comes thru slightly,light feel for the style,it lacks richness and fullness.Quite tart on the palate with that green apple elelment again,clove-like spiced phenols as well,a shot of sweet alcohol in the finish.Really a lighter bodied weizenbock here,its not bad but it lacks fullness of body and flavor in my opinion.

22 oz. Semi-cloudy orange pour. Just a thin layer of white head.

Aroma, a good blend of caramel, some red and pineapple type fruit and fruitcake.

Taste, more malty than fruity. Caramel, toffee. Some rye bread and a light spicy wheat and hopping. A nice toasted malt aspect and some banana and clove in the finish.

Coating medium body, but the carbonation level keeps it a little lighter feeling. Not much alcohol presence and pretty easy drinking for the size.

Overall one of the better Weizenbock's I've tried. Not sure if it's up there with the ones at right, but it's close.

22 oz. wax covered bottle. Pours a clear yellow-orange color with a quickly diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma is honey, wheat, fruits, and a touch of alcohol. Flavor is sweet malts, apples, spicy and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium, a touch dry, fairly carbonated, spicy, and a touch of bitterness at the finish. Pretty good beer, pretty drinkable.

Acquired at Bruisin' Ales in Asheville on 12/27/08 for $6.

This was a surprise to me; up to this point I had only seen (and tried) Olde Hickory's barleywine in the bottle. Stopping at the Olde Hickory Taproom in downtown Hickory has become a ritual for me when traveling from Durham to Knoxville, and it's nice to have something of theirs I can take home.

This Weizen Bock comes in a 22oz bottle with green wax encasing the cap. An upside-down goat (?) on a background of green meadows, mountains, and clouds appears on the label. The brew pours a dark gold, with a fizzy top that disappears as soon as it arrives. It is practically transparent, with no yeast or haze obstructing the view. Isn't this odd for a wheat beer? I think so. The smell is spot on, with banana, clove, freshly cut hay, and crisp, clean hops rounding things out. In regards to the flavor, the dark fruit esters that normally arise with this style aren't present. However, there are some redeeming characteristics: the sweet front, banana/clove center, and the dry, hoppy finish with a lingering weizenbock aftertaste. Okay, it does lose points for not being truly to style, but it's a pleasure to drink.

OHB's second bottled offering.
Bright golden in color with just a bit of haziness. 1/4" white head that retains well. Little lacing.
Bannana, cloves and other spices in the aroma. Also has a nice hoppy smell akin to fresh cut grass that I find interesting for the style.
Flavor profile follows that of the aroma. Bannana, cloves, and other spices. Nice hoppy finish with some alcohol warming.
Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth. A bit of warmth is felt too.
This is a sipper given the flavor intensity and warmth.
Good beer from OHB.

This beer was a light yellow with a fair head. The smell was of fresh cut hay. The flavor was watery wheat and a little bit of cream ale or something akin to Boddington's. Drinkability would be better in warmer weather. The abv was not evident but I could still only manage a lackluster reveiw.
