Hazy prune juice with a moderate tan head. Not my favorite Weizenbock, I get caramel, toffee, dark wheat and banana. This is definitely a bit more Americanized, and a lot less sumptuous, soft and bready than some of my favorites.

Nice version of Weizenbock. Smooth and easy to drink, a bit flat and lacks wow. Still, a recommendation from this reviewer is in order. This is a great brewer and they do justice to this style.

Pours a cola color without much head. Aroma has lots of dark candied fruit. Taste is nails all the classic weizenbock flavors - raisinbread, clove, banana, semi-sweet phenol notes. Great representation of the style
