a weizenbock on the darker side. amber cloudy with a bit of debris floating around. i would like to see all cloudy and not sediment. this was an older bottle than i would have liked. nose is apple, brown sugar, and a hint of lemon zest. Somewheat malt, mild banana. The wheat opens up nicely palate ranged in fruit esters but with a predominate citrus and wheat malt reaction and a bitter finish burnt clove. Apple is steady and throughout the latitude. a bit of huskiness in the gums. all around great for this side of the water. a go to weizenbock.

Weizenbocks or wheats in general aren't among my favorite styles but this was a dang good example of one..

This was laden with cinnamon and cloves, although not overpowering, atop a wheat base that brings a touch of sweetness but not to the point of being cloying... Booze is somewhat present but it doesn't dominate. Perhaps a little Band-Aid?

A nice beer for sure but probably not one that I will revisit... As I stated, not my favorite style but this was a really good example...

A warm caramel with three fingers worth of khaki head. Large amount of caramel malt in the smell with raisins, cherries, and banana fruity sweetness. Getting some rum notes in the smell as well. Taste is similar to the smell, caramel and toffee with banana and cherries. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice representation of the style, very enjoyable.
