On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth.

The beer pours a medium brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and toffee with some wheat, bananas and cloves mixed in. Smells just like I think a weizenbock should smell.

The flavor follows suit. There is a lot of heavy malt notes with some caramel and toffee, with some nice spices including cloves and cinnamon. There is also a nice amount of banana mixed in with the flavor. The alcohol is detectable.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

Very dark amber brown in the Duvel tulip. Not much head, though it's quite sparkly in the mouth. Just a slight swirl of lacing before it dissipates. Quite a robust taste. Initially it tastes on the sweet side with a bitter rebound. A modest aroma of grains. Some fruit cocktail in the nose.

Dark roasted malt with a bitter aftertaste. Burnt sugar with some hoppy flavors, though not much of the aromatics. Some burnt taste. Starts each sip with a sugary sensation that ends in the back of the throat with a hint of bitter cough syrup. I don't really taste much of the usual German wheat esters, but there is some fruit and a hint of banana. Overall, this sems too bitter and earthy for what I like in this style. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Depot Liquor in Brownwood, Texas.

The goat on the label does indeed look pissed and poised to beat (hoof?) some elven ass! 22 oz bomber (from HEB) pours a dark brown color with a creamy cap of tan head. Not much for retention, but does leave some decent lace. Pretty good looking weizenbock here.

Lots of banana present, cloves are fairly mild and the wheat is soft and supple. I'm surprised at how good this beer smells, as I dont typically think of Rahr as capable of producing a great WB. Chocolate is there but the yeast takes center-stage...as it should.

Not bad, a bit phenolic and the alcohol is a tad on the rough side, but it has some nice yeast character and a smooth chocolate presence.
A few swirls of the glass knocks out some of carbonation and helps smooth things out. Sweetness is just about right, just enough to give it a rich body and offset the alcohol...which is big. Smooth out the alc and add a bit more roastily-smooth chocolate and this one would be damn near world-class. <clap, clap>...I think this is the best in the 'To Thee' series since the Bourbon Barrel Winter Warmer. Better as it warms to around maybe 45 or so. I would (and will) have no problem sending this tasty treat out in trades or BIFs.

22 oz served in a Hefeweizen glass

A - Pours a burnt caramel brown with 2 fingers of tan head. Leaves behind a few strands of lacing.

S - Fried plantains and pears coated with caramelized brown sugar and a dusting of cocoa. Brown bread crust.

T - Follows the aroma with candied plantains, pears covered in burnt caramel, light chocolate, clove. Finishes with strong fruity esters, cocoa, and a woody bourbon flavor. Very nice!

M - Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and silky feel.

The fruit esters were a big component to this beer as well as a thick malt profile. Good roundness overall. Nice feel and quite tasty. Recommended!

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served on-tap at the brewery into the complimentary Ugly Pug Pint Glass.

A: Medium-to-dark brown with lighter hues around the edges. Poured with no head, and therefore, no lacing.

S: Fruity yeast upfront - banana & also some bubble-gum. Sweet, but not cloying, wheat malts and a bit of caramel.

T: Banana, caramel, and mild hop bitterness.

M: I only have Vitus to compare as far as the style; this was a bit thinner, but not by much.

O: Really enjoyed this one fresh at the brewery. They only tapped one keg and it went fairly quick: wanted a second pint, but it had already kicked. Will look for this in bottle.

22oz bomber into a snifter

A: Pours brown with a decent eggshell white head that fades to a ring and leaves a tiny bit of lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is typical of a Weizenbock with notes of banana, cloves, and chocolate/cocoa.

T: The taste follows the nose with nice flavors of cocoa, banana, and yeast esters along with a spice flavor I wasn't expecting. Pretty impressive from a brewery that is on a roll with this new series lately.

M: The feel is medium bodied and silky with a good amount of carbonation.

O: This is a tasty beer which was a bit surprising to me. I didn't think i'd like it but it's a good interpretation of the style. It could us a bit more complexity but that's nitpicking.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass, unknown freshness date, but I bet its ultra fresh. This pours a dark brown almost black color with a nice tan head which quickly dissipates. The smells are a little of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and a little fruit and sweetness. The feel is medium to thick and creamy. The taste is pretty good, there are the chocolate flavors along with some sweetness and fruit, but its less intense than I expected.
