Had on tap at the Pump Station brewpub in Albany. This is one of the best and original beers I've tried, it was so good. The pub description: "This strong version of our Bavarian-style wheat beer is brewed with beechwood-smoked malt, imparting a subtle smoke flavor. The unique yeast used to ferment this malty brew produces fruity and spicy aromas reminiscent of bananas and cloves"

My own take on it is that the aroma and flavor were absolutely perfect, but it was a little light in color versus the best (Aventinus or Pikantus). There are other light colored weizenbocks from Germany (St. Blasius) so I guess the style has a lot of range.

The smell was smoky but not over the top like the major rauchbiers, and was yeasty and estery. The flavor was the same, with not as much banana/clove as you'd expect, but they were there. The smoke really altered the flavor in a good way. Nice thick mouthfeel while being not too highly carbonated, it was delicious and easy to pound.
