look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Listed as "None the Wiser," but it's actually called "None the Weisser." On tap at PP Carlsbad.

Clear dark orangish brown in color with a small beige head.

Aroma is somewhat yeasty with banana, clove, caramel.

Flavor is very nice and balanced with wheat, yeast, and caramel along with strong banana and clove as well as a bit of chocolate-covered raisin.

Medium body with somewhat lively carbonation.

Drinkability is high on this one. Overall a very solid weizenbock, not too unlike Schneider Aventinus.

The nose was light overall. Some malty presence with a light wheat undertone. Some hefe smells with some banana and light clove esters. Some higher alcohol aromas as well with white wine characteristics as well. I would have liked the esters to back down and more of a malty presence but ok.

The taste is more balanced. The malt flavor comes out with some complexity with a nice caramel backing. Some lighter chocolate undertones and hints of grainy notes as well. Some wheat undertones as well but subtle. There are some yeast notes, banana mostly but some lighter bubblegum and white pepper as well. This is a bit hoppy for style but works nicely and finishes off with a floral ending for the beer.

The body is closer to mid than big but makes it a bit easier to drink. For me I would have like to see more of a malty balance but this is a good beer.

One great beer! It's a very unique beer, and well done.

Definitely has a nice wheat base, but with tons of other flavors too. Dark fruits, port and other tasty delights! Very wine-like in character. Tastes like a wonderful dark, port-like strong ale, but then with that great wheat back. I love it. Also has a great touch of roastiness. So what does that makes this? A strong ale crossed with a porter crossed with a wheat beer? I guess. I don't know. Except I know I really like it!

Never had anything quite like it. Mouthfeel is nice and fulfilling, and drinkability is quite high.

Highly recommended. If you stop by and they have it on tap, get yourself a pint. Or better yet, a growler!

Served to me in a tulip glass. This beer is an opaque very dark brown color with a small spotty head with a solid white ring around the edge of the glass.
Roasted malt character that contains some light chocolate and coffee like aromas surrounded with lots of fruit, mostly lots of banana.
Yeasty banana flavors are most prominent and are followed by a nice buttery toasted maltiness with a touch of chocolate, coffee, and a nice carmalized sweetness. Nice balance of flavors that really make for an interesting beer. The darker malt flavors play nicely with the fruity banana yeastiness.
Full bodied with a low to medium level of carbonation.
An interesting and flavorful beer that I hope I have the chance to revisit. Good drinkability and had me ordering a second the second day I revisited Toronado.

My notes say this is None the Weisser at the Carlsbad Pizza Port, and it rings in at a juicy 8.3% abv

App: Dark brown (almost black) with a good off white head that lasts.

Smell: Fruity yeast aromas come out through the alcohol. This is a nice fireplace brew.

Taste: Bananas, alochol, intense maltiness, caramel, chocolate and coffee all roll around each other on the palate. I like letting this glide over my tounge just to experience all the tastes at once. This is a very well done weizenbock.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with no perceivable bitterness. The only interesting character is the alcohol, which adds to the experience.

Drinkability: I probably couldn't have more than 2 in a sitting, even if I was highly tolerant of alcohol, because it's so rich and fulfilling. However, I would gladly consume this regularly if it was on tap in my area.

A- dark brown with copperish hues, 1 finger thin tan head, good retent, filmy lace.

S- banana, toffee, burnt sugar, fruit

T- raisin and date like malt characters, brown sugar, sneaky alcohol toward finish, bready, roasted banana finish

M- full bodied, smooth with slight carbonation tickles and alcoholic warmth

D- complex and very drinkable, though its a sipper, drinkability increases with the temperature, the complexity comes out as well, damn smooth and tasty, i don't think i'd crave this brew, but i sit here now and wish i had one

On-tap at Port Carlsbad. White head on dark colour. Aroma of chocolate and dried fruit. This weiss has above average carbonation and can taste the hops, chocolate malt and the fruitiness. Smooth drinker and medium mouthfeel. Some toasted malt, fairly smooth drinkable.
