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

Appearance: Cloudy orange color with a small amount of head that dissipated after a bit.

Smell: Citrus smell is the strongest smell but a bit of a bread like smell under it. A hint of a sour note on the nose as well.

Taste: Wonderful. This is one of the best tasting beers I've had to date. It has a nice citrus flavor well balanced by the wheat flavor. A little sweet, but still has a bit of hop flavor as well. Aftertaste is a nice bread like flavor.

Mouthfeel: A bit thick leaving the mouth slightly dry. Very nice.

Overall: From the moment I began pouring this into my glass to the very end of the glass, this was the best overall beer I've had to date. Highly recommend to anyone that likes a good wheat beer (my favorite style).

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

Pours a hazed honey/apricot color with 2 fingers of ivory head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Cloves, breadyness & phenolic notes

T: Sweet breadyness, figs & apricots mix with green apple peels & green banana, plus cloves up front. Slight smokeyness, more green banana & cloves once this warms, a touch of boozeyness nixes with juicy fruit, plus white pepper. Finishes fruitty, juicy & with nice banana peel notes

MF: Medium bodied,carbonation is subtle & really pushes the flavor

Super example of the style, I really can't find any fault at all this, great quencher n another 100 degree day!

330ml into a stein.

A-Beautiful cloudy burnt orange with a 2cm white head, fading quickly.

S-Strong ripe banana and bubblegum.

T-Very sweet, candy rich, and heavy almost syrupy but enough carbonation to keep it from cloying. Dense and moist like banana bread, with a hint of bitterness that was similar to unripe fruit, but this provided a nice complement to the banana/gum sweetness.

M-Extremely creamy, almost like drinking a milk stout on nitro. Velvet.

O-An amazingly rich and warming beer.

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

A: pours an opaque hazy orange with a thin skim of white bubbles.

S: wheat, caramel and toffee. Banana bread and mild green apples.

T: more biscuit and banana bread than the nose but basically the same. Caramel and honey right off the bat. The fruits and spices come in fast and strong but the new honey taste lingers throughout and hangs on the tongue.

MF: full flavor and medium body with great effervescence and sweetness.

O: great weizenbock!!! I would buy sixers if not twelve packs of this only.

12 oz into a snifter...this is by far my favorite of the beer camp beers, really an awesome brew...big straw yellow cloudy body with generous head. Tons of nose of wheat and yeast funk...they nailed both the weizen and the bock, so to speak...I mean nailed it, it's great, with just enough noble hops to balance it and nothing more. It's very rare that I would say this about the aroma of an American edition of a German style, but it competes with the best Germans. Taste follows suit, with big wheat and fruity characteristics. Mouthfeel is robust, energetic and quite simply, flawless. Overall, try it if you find it. Great beer.
