12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 9/13/2013. Pours very hazy deep gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big banana, apricot, pear, orange, apple, clove, wheat, bread, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of banana, apricot, pear, apple, orange, clove, wheat, bread, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, apricot, pear, orange, apple, wheat, bread, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice beer. More of a weizenbock in flavor; but has all around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and pale malt flavors; and is very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
