On tap at The Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Nice take on a weizenbock, fruity lager yeast, dark fruits, toffee, bubble gum and clove. It's a little bit too sweet, possibly, but in small amounts this is really nice.

12oz bottle poured into a flute. Yeast roused before pouring. Notched freshness date indicated the month of bottling, though not the year. I'd guess this is at least a year old at the time of consumption, if not more.

A: Dark amber/red on the pour. Clarity is better than expected for the style; it is only slightly hazy. The rocky off-white head is long-lasting and impressive. Lots of clumpy lacing cements itself onto the sides of the glass.

S: Bready and wheaty with a porridge-like base smell. Pronounced esters of raspberry, golden raisin, and prune. Hints of peach cobbler. Caramel and warm vanilla. Pie crust, slight cocoa, and vague spice. No signs of alcohol on the nose.

T: Caramel and biscuit open. Estery prune and raspberry grab center stage for a while. Coarse wheat and dry cocoa begin to emerge. Spicy alcohol and peachy tropical esters have been tamed somewhat over time, but they're still here. Pie crust. Very subtle clovey/metallic phenols. Ghost-like fruity and grassy/herbal hop character. Drying wheaty finish with hints of nutty yeast and cocoa.

M: Full and rather rich. Thickish body. Slightly weighty and chewy, but a bit fluffy and very creamy at the same time. Moderate carbonation. Soothing warmth from the alcohol.

O: Age tames the alcohol a bit, but this is still a little more simplified and rough around the edges compared to the better examples of the style. A very admirable effort though, and the rarity of the style in this neck of the woods means that this is one of the better Weizenbocks available.

I bought a 4-pack of this recently at the Georgetown Deli ($10.99) and opted to quaff a couple on Sunday, 27JAN13.

Filled a small tulip with a deep, rich, slightly hazy chestnut/garnet brew. Head was thin, mostly a rim-job, off-white and fine. Lacing was rather sparse. Had some good malt on display in the nose, with a little caramel, and suggestions of alcohol heat. For the style, the mouthfeel was solid; medium bodied and fairly smooth going down.

Taste is malty all the way. Was a bit toasty, with hints of nuttiness, plus a touch of cookie dough. I also picked up flavors akin to brown bread. Everything got better as the bier warmed. Pretty good, all in all. Zum Wohl!!
