look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Nice dark amber color with an off-white head that retains well. Smell is very rich of caramel, various spices, dark fruit, and some clove. Burnt sugar and dark caramel sweetness greet the tongue, followed by perfect amount of spiciness (not spicy as in chili spicy, mind you), with a lingering sweet caramel finish with just a touch of banana. Carbonation is on the higher side, but not overpowering, it's just the right amount. Body is full, chewy, but not cloying; no discernable alcohol coming through. Truly an exceptional beer, I'm glad I decided to try it. I will be buying more of this and will be trying some of their other products.

This was a solid beer all around. Poured a pretty copper gold into my Aventinus Weizenbock glass. Not a lot of head, but typical for the style.

Aromas weren't as spicy as I remembered Aventinus..Not nearly the clove or allspice presence. But nonetheless, a sweet, malty aroma prevailed.

Taste as good. Definite doppelbock, sweet, malty, slightly spicy.

Mouthfeel was thick and warming, with just a hint of alcohol presence.

Overall, this was a very nice beer and I would recommend it.

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

This is batch 10..
The color is a medium tan with a red hue.. after pouring the 1/2 inch head quickly dissipated to a slight cover with a persistent ring.

it has strong yeasty smells, as well as some fruit.. plum, pear, banana... all very pleasing

surprisingly it is not as bold as i expected from the aroma, but all the complex flavors blend quite nicely to make this a very drinkable beer.

in the mouth it is light, yet flavorful. sweet at first, and then just enough hop at the end to make it finish clean and to cut the fruity, yeasty sweetness.

I could see drinking this again... very pleasant beer.. first wheat doublebock ive tried i think... ill seek it out again eventually...

Thanks to egajdzis for opening this brew. I've been trying to get this for a few years now. Batch 10...
Appears a russet toned copper with a small beige head that fades into a mild cap. Spotty lacing is left behind.
Smell is of caramel, bubble gum, doughy bread, yeasty as hell, mild cocoa, toffee, bananas, and other yeasty esters.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with some fruity flavors shining through highlighted by light grapes.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, yeasty, sweetly balanced, and estery.

2.74/5  rDev -26.1%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance:pours a hazy yellowish / light orange color with no head. No lacing or carbonation bubbles are visible.

Smell: caramel and wheat tones are very soft and barely detectable.

Taste: mild caramel sweetness, grainy wheat, no bitterness, and a mild metallic flavor appears while swallowing. Alcohol is barely noticeable. This beer did not seem old or mishandled, just not balanced. Overall a mild flavored weizenbock that just does not excite one's tastebuds.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp at the start and finishes lightly crisp with a touch of dryness. Aftertaste follows the flavor profile and lingers briefly on the tongue.

Drinkability: this was a beer that one that is easy to forget. Not worth picking this up.

A 12 ounce bottle purchased at Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon. Poured it into a cooperative mug from Burge, Belgium.

A: Poured a murky reddish-brown hue with a very modest caramel head. The color of the liquid reminded me of a glass of water from the muddy Missouri river during spring run-off season. The closer the glass is held to backlighting a ruddy red emerges as the dominate hue. The head receded quickly leaving a thin cover over the liquid and a ring around the collar.

S: A slight aroma of toasted malts give a hint of chocolate and ripe bananas. There are whispers of plums and an assortment of passive spices. This beer is does not have a pronounced aroma…its subtle and sublime.

T: The subdued aroma does not give away the surprise I experienced when I took my first swig of this beer. The first sip burst with flavors of caramel, English licorice, plums, and a hint of alcohol. The malts and hops are well balanced making it a pleasure from start to finish.

M: Nice full bodied creamy brew without being heavy. Moderately carbonated; giving it a bit of zip. Smooth yet complex. Later in the glass I picked up a bit of dryness. It was not objectionable…rather it enticed me to grab the mug and liquefy my mouth.

D: I find this beer enjoyable. It has a lot of the positive characteristics of a Hefeweizen without being too heavy or overly fruity. I could easily kick back and enjoy several of these in one sitting.

Comment: This is my first Weizenbock. I am positive I will have many more if this is indicative of the style.

Pours out a murk suede with a strong, billowing, off-white head. Has a candy sweet nose with ample chocolate and bananas and a nice clove undertone. Mild alcohol comes out. The sweetness and alcohol become a bit much in the flavor (although the alcohol isn't exactly overpowering, it's more than I'd like). The yeasty complexities are there but in the shadows of the overwhelming dark malts. Almost has an artificial sweetener flavor to it. Mouthfeel is just a tad stick, but the carbonation is wonderfully smooth. I'd reserve this as a dessert beverage.

Poured into a flute glass a hazy murky brown with a slight lemony yellow tinge a big blooming off white head that settles into a pillowy mass atop.Smokey clove and toasty malt in the nose with a hint of banana-like fruit,full near chewey mouthfeel but it still glides down very easily,starts out somewhat spicey and clovey with hints of smoke and brown sugar but its very light quite crisp and dry on the palate in the finish with a light banana flavor.This Brazilian brewery puts out some good stuff they know what they are doing this is another fine example.

Pours out a rich brown amber with just a slight haze and a foamy tan head that drops to a thin layer.

Smell. Nice aromas of clove and bubblegum, though the cloves dominate with some cinnoman and yeastyness to it.

Taste. Flavor is rich, but is not what i expected from the aroma. I get a darker and richer flavor than expected. notes i get are a little chocolate and even some woodiness to it as it warms. Is sweet, but not fruity. A little bit of the clove and banana comes out as it warms in my mouth, but the alcohol certainly takes over at that point. Aftertaste is peppery and hot, with a little more bittering chocolate.

Mouthfeel is full with vigorous carbonation that really fills the mouth.

Overall, this is a nice take on the style and is quite an interesting beer. I wish the flavor was a little fruiter and had a stronger clove note to it, but is still nice. A fine beer, but i would rather aventinus.

Another great beer from Eisenbahn. I've been very surprised with this small Brazilian brewery so far. Not quite Aventinus, but really, what is? Can't wait to try the bottle of Lust I also picked up.

The beer pours to a dark brown color with amber hues when held to the light. Fairly cloudy. A smallish off-white head forms, but disappears soon after the pour. Subsequently no lacing.

The smell is good. Lots of banana and bubblegum esters with a subtle clove. Also has a very nice chocolatey bock-like aroma with a hint of that trademark "muddiness." Very nice.

The taste is just as great as the nose. A fair bit of sweetness up front. The bubblegum esters are dominant along with some banana to a lesser degree. Hints of dark chocolatey malts. A bit of clove in the finish. No alcohol detected. Very clean with only a hint of a lager-ish flavor.

The body is medium to full with a decent creamy feel. Soft carbonation. Doesn't seem nearly as warming as Aventinus. A candy like finish lingers for quite some time. Very easy to drink. Great stuff. I would recommend it, among other beers from Eisenbahn.

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

Appears a cloudy murky amber brown mahogany hue large tan head with big bubbles dwindles quickly from about an inch and a half down to just a collar of lacing which are left in uneven specks. Aroma contains tart raisins and spicy christmas bread a real yeast and bread dough characteristic mild cider vinegar tart flow going on as well the fruitiness is rather perfumey. Flavor wise the taste is a bit clouded with spices and it really dominates the effervesent green apple and raisin fruit esters dough powdered yeast sits heavy with light herbal hops this beer is not harmonious it's in battle of spice versuses the yeast almost seems like something of Belgian character rather than a German style weizenbock alcohol is pretty well hidden even as it warms. Mouthfeel is a bit chewy yet soft flowing the carbonation gives this medium to fuller bodied brew enough moving power to not sit on the palate completely but once again the yeast and spice characteristics sit heavy on the tongue in the finish in trainwreck fashion. Drinkability leaves more to be desired for me flavor components attempt to pull of cohesion but it lacks so much from the German predecessors that I'd rather get the original definitely complex and tasty but I'm weary of supporting the Shelton Brothers on a regular basis.

This is definetly not what people would think of a typical beer from Brazil, it is very special. Pours a hazy reddish brown color, quite murky. Smells like sweet old fruit, sometimes not a good sign for me. Taste though, oh yeah, does taste like dried fruit like plums or apricots, slight alcohol hints in the background, but it is really tasty and not too fruity or overly sweet. This is a really nice beer that should get some massive distribution and a lot more attention not just from this site but the mass beer drinking public in general.

12oz twist off bottle, found at Premier Gourmet, in Buffalo.
My second offering from the self-proclaimed "South America's Craft brewery" out of Blumeneau, Brazil.
My first impression, as noted with their Kolsch, is that there is no head; and yet this style is distinctly known for having copious, cloud like bundles of head (as well as properly shaped glassware to uphold them). This weizenbock, however, is flat. Some generated off the pour but it was short lived. The colour is very murky, like muddy swamp water. A half-paced stream of bubbles rise up the center. Very unattractive (and dull) brownish colour. There is some glow near the bottom, the top is simply murky. The aroma is a pleasant offering of wheat, coated with a ripe fruit character (raisin and dates). Lightly pungent, even musty, but well suited to the style and the appearance. Pleasant yes, but even more so underwhelming. Luckily, all was rescued with my first sip - an intense rush of dark wheat with a candy coating of dark fruit/berries, with a delicate touch of roast. A simple (straightforward, like their Kolsch) flavour profile that has just enough depth to keep you interested. The raisin and berries come through very clean on the aftertaste. Not even a faint suggestion as to the alcohol. Another nice offering from this brewery...

As a last thought, irrelevant to reviewing the beer, I feel "saudade" is the most beautiful -not only of all the words in the Portuguese language - but of any... wow, Saudade.

12 oz bottle. The brew is a lightly ambered deep tea color with a finger of off-white head that falls to a patchy coat of very large bubbles. Clarity is very good and there is a small stream of bubbles from the bottom. The nose is a little solventy sweet, with a very sweet banana, strong yeasty and lighter bready charater with a caramel sweetness playing in the background. I like the aroma on this one, even with the solventy sweetness in there. The flavor is very well blended with the yeasty softness and bready character being prevalent on the start, moving to a mild banana and very light raisin fruityness, and finishing with a bready and caramel maltyness. I enjoy the juxtoposition between the estery fruit and the bready and yeasty character. I think they play well together. Mouthfeel is chewy and moderate thick with a mild carbonation. The contrast between the lighter carbonation and the thickness of the body is good for this one. There is a mild drying character after taking a sip and it really hangs on the sides of my tongue. The alcohol is very well hidden in this one. The flavors and aromas are prevalent, but not obtrusive. I think the beer really blends together in all aspects. This one is nice.

Pours a muddy, cloudy milk-chocolate/caramel body. Average size head with okay retention.

Immediate reaction upon smelling this Brazilian-born German style beer was...Belgium! But I'm sure that's just due to its unfiltered nature and the yeast that comes along with it. Aromas are fresh-baked bread, caramel, banana, Nestle Quik.

Huge banana in the flavor, with accompanying slippery and chewy mouthfeel. Also a lactic flavor, all milk chocolate-y and dessert-like. Bread-like earthiness, but it all revolves around the slick banana flavor and feel, which is delicious, but hard to get away from. It dominates.

Overall this is really good. But it's heavy, reallys sticks to the mouth and stomach; good thing it's a regular 12 oz. bottle. So the drinkability seems a bit limited. Looking forward to trying this brewer's other offerings, all sent by msubulldog.

Purchased at Premier Gourmet!

Pours an opaque orange/brown, thin tan head forms, disappears to a thin ring really fast, some lace spots. Sweet, banana/clove bread, wheat, very malty, caramel, very fruity, bit of alcohol, smells pretty nice. Taste is very malty, sweet caramel, bit of clovey banana bread again, heavy caramel and spice finish, alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation, close to flat. Twist off bottle cap coming from Brazil = potential carbonation problem. More carbonation would help it but a pretty damn smooth and nice drinking Weizenbock.

Presentation: 12oz bottle (Batch #10) in a classic Weizen glass

Poured smoothly and with a faint crackle. Nice esters up front, yeasty, rocky malts, spicy (clove), overripe fruits. As it warms the malts grow in resonance and tannins & leather emerge. Head was a great 3 fingers of mixed almond hued foam that settled to a 1/8" covering of the same with some faint edge lacing at first, then nothing. A murky, hazed, copper stained tea resides below the head, a very striking color with some light bubble activity.

Mmm..nice. The clove spiciness associated with the genre is upfront & kickin' albeit softly (if clove & faint black pepper can be soft) over a creamy, smooth caramelized malt tongue painting. A nice yeasty quality is present as well as some raisin sweetness. Its crisp, dry, lightly crunchy, which is accentuated by the slowly rising warmth from the ABV. I can tell right now this would be killer with a spicy steak or any fired up red meat. Some classic ripe banana semi-sweetness is now noticeable as it blooms & warms.

It grows thicker, more compacted as a whole on the palate as the alcohol begins a slow burn over an increasing sharpened & dry spiciness. The malts are really beginning to shine more & more, almost like drinking 2 different beers! When cooler its much more in the Weizen style, but as it warms its almost more Belgian Strong Dark Ale....wild! This is quite an experience! It finishes bittersweet with burnt caramel and echoed spices, leaving a nice, thick, chewy aftertaste.

Well, I am impressed. It was a good, but not great, Weizen until that gear shift into what my tastebuds said was almost an entirely different beer. It most definitely does NOT finish wimpy or weak, and actually appears to morph. I will have to try another that is more room temp to see what its like from the start that way. Another excellent beer from Eisenbahn, and definitely recommended. Now where's that pepper crusted steak at?

Poured 12oz bottle to tulip. Dark brown beer with plenty of cloudiness capped by a small off white head that descended at a medium pace to nice lacings. Aroma is tons of yeast and caramel, and flavor is more of same, quite nutty, and very present alcohol. Alcohol a bit of a turn off, especially as the beer warmed. Mouthfeel is quite nice, small & steady carbonation. I like the style a lot and this is one worth trying, but not worth going out of your way for.

Cloudy brown with off white head. Looks like a consummate weizenbock.Head fluffs up right away, reduces in short order to chunks of foam scattered around my weizen glass. The aroma of this beer is not overwhelming, there's some wheatbeer yeast notes and darker fruit sweet aromas.

Great weizen flavors, some banana thickness in the mouth, raisin in the finish, clove flavors emerge. There's some caramel malt as well, the wheat is very present. Slight spicing and the warming 8% alcohol fit the weizenbock style perfectly.

This one didn't fill the mouth quite like the Aventinus, so I docked it for mouthfeel. In general, it is creamy and smoothly full. The wheat goes down very smooth. I absolutely love this style of beer, and this one is just fine.

Pours a very cloudy, dark brown with a half inch fluffy head that fades slowly to a soapy cap. The lacing is thick, and leaves chucks of foam all over the inside of the glass.

Smell; dark roasted caramel malts combine very nicely with a solid wheat aroma. There's also quite a bit of cloves, with some bananas and mild hints of dark fruits. A touch of alcohol is present in the background.

Taste; the bananas and dark fruits are a bit more evident in the flavor, making this a touch sweet right up front. Caramel malts, wheat and a pretty nice presence of cloves fill out the middle, while a bit of spiciness helps to cover up some alcohol that's slightly noticeable, but not overpowering at all.

Mouthfeel is maybe a touch thin for a Weizenbock, but still very smooth, and just short of creamy. The drinkability for me is very high, as i would have no problem putting a few of these down in a night, though with the alcohol, it might hurt a bit the next day.

12oz. bottle, poured into a 0.5L Weizen glass. Tan foam creeps up past the half-liter mark, slowly settles in a few minutes. Body is an unfiltered, cloudy auburn.

Vigorosa doesn't have a pronounced aroma. Some light cloviness, esters, & mild whiff of alcohol, however not harsh or offensive.

Clove, almond, and rum are the notes that come out in the taste. ABV is there, again not harsh, but the presence is felt.

Mouthfeel is smooth, not as rich as Aventinus or Mahr's, but very pleasing and drinkable. Overall a solid Weizenbock.

I used a Weiss glass for this review which helped produce the nice light tan head of decent volume is creamy with fair stability, but produces little lacing. The color is deep amber and radiates a deep golden around the edges when held to light. There is great turbidity with a great yeasty haze. There are small wispy clouds of yeast concentrated in the bottom of the glass towards the end.

The very wonderful nose is diverse and complex, though this makes it somewhat indiscernible. Huge alcoholic and phenol notes up front, then dried dark stone fruits like dates, figs and prunes waft from the brew. There is also a sweet Carmel malitness behind the alcohol and musty fuitiness. A hay-like hop character, as well as a slight smokiness is distinguishable as the beer warms.

The taste is just as complex and diverse as the nose entails. The taste begins with a touch of alcohol, then caramelized sugar sweetness, before a nice bitter toasty and roasted malt character cuts in. The body is a balanced mix of roasty malt and raw wheat coupled with very slight citrus hop bitterness. There is an interesting herbal mintiness in an alcoholic finish that is reminiscent of dark spiced rum.

The flavors are varied and diverse, as with the nose, and like wise rather indiscernible; however the depth and intensity that is unbelievably amazing. Roasty and rich without loosening or masking the Hefe Weizen flavors of eastery yeasts, wheatiness and subtle banana. There is a great banana bread or even Bananada or Mariola taste to the body. The latter two are dark, dehydrated and compressed Banana products available here in Brazil that have a remarkable likeness to the flavor.

The rather high, 8.0% by volume, alcohol is very well hid, it is present in the finish and the aftertaste as an excellent accent to the array of flavors. I started to feel the alcohol both in warmth and in a slight buzz towards the end.

Moderate carbonation and thick, slightly oily mouthfeel match well with the Weizenbock style.

Very surprised at the drinkability of this beer on a hot day. I think of Weizenbocks as more cool weather beers, but this Brazilian beer can be drunk on a hot Brazilian day.

Eisenbahn uses 5 types of malt in the production of this beer and it really provides depth and complexity, with a different nuance of flavor revealed in every sip.

Picked up a 12 oz. bottle and poured to a pint glass. There's been minor buzz in Portland regarding this Brazilian brewery's arrival in the market. Thought I'd give it a try...

A: An unfiltered weizenbock is probably not gonna be "pretty" to look at - after swirling and pouring with the yeast, this one's a murky, hazy siena brown. All the funk stays suspended towards the middle of the glass, meaning the ample & constant carbonation is easy to see. A small creamy head fades to a thin ring around the glass and is a dusty tan color.

S: Big spices meld some sweeter banana and clove esters. Grassy wheat/grain smells.

T: Zesty herbalness of cloves, some sweetened tropical fruit, a tinge of tangy citrus and mild hop spiciness. Big caramel malts and a general grain/wheat bread maltiness. Pretty yummy.

M: Lots of carbonation leaves a tingly medium-fullness in the mouth. Lingering spiciness latches on to the cheeks and tongue, along with some notable but very pleasant alcohol warmth. Very nice.

D: A tasty beer, nice flavors and excellent mouthfeel. Brazil would not seem a likely locale for brewing quality traditional German/Euro brews, but if this one's any indication of what's typical, I'm certain I'll try more from Cervejaria Sudbrack. Recommended!

I thought this was a DAMN fine showing from Brazil. I judged it as a German Style Hefe Wiezen Double Bock. I went out of my way to pour the yeast, like one is suposed to do with a good hefe bier. I did not ding it for being the cloudy brown that it is but I did ding it for the lack of head. The wheat should have given it a better head. The aroma is fruity with banana and pear, bready malt and little in the way of hops. The flavor is malty with caramel and banana esters with a slight phenol spiciness at the end. The mouthfeel was ok, a tad sticky. If was attenuated a bit more I would bump it up to a 4. HIGHLY drinkable, some were saying that the alcohol gets in the way but I totally dissagree. There is no heat to so I do not see the problem. I still put Aventinius (SP??) above it but not by much.

not my kind of beer.
You can notice the alcohol content too much, and that's bad, IMHO.

It looks great, nice head, hazy unfiltered look, and smells good also. Mouthfeel is similar the Eisenbahn's Weizenbier, only "stronger".

If you like higher alcohol content, I'd recommend this. If you don't, steer away. Maybe if I drank this along with some food, I would've enjoyed more. But since I drank it by itself (while watching a movie), I would ask for a second one.
