A-Dark coppery orange color with poor clarity (which is great for a weizen) and a thick off white to tan head

S-Slightly bready, fruity, a bit of bananas and dates in the nose, not overwhelming though

T- Real hit of malt sweetness up front, more or less balanced by a smooth bitterness. Kinda fruity in a fashion similar to a Trappist ale.

M-Effervescent carbonation, thick and slightly cloying

O-First Weizenbock I've had, tastes very Belgian in its character, lots of raisins, and stone fruit flavor. Balance definitely favors the malt

Edit after having some more examples of this style I decided this beer is definitely too sweet for the style and a bit cloying when compared to its German brethren that tend to be much more drinkable.

A lightly hazed light chestnut brown in my 300 ml Aventinus glass. Very good sized head that stays for quite a while and covers the beer all the way down. Some nice lacing on the glass. Some stickiness in the fluid evident. Smell is sweet with banana, alcohol and caramel. Lovely warm dark bread aromas. Taste is full of overripe banana and clove. Raisins and dark fruity sweetness. Wheat malt twang cuts through with a dark toasted nuttiness and caramel vanilla notes.Alcohol is well integrated and not overpowering. Fell is velvety with a silky carbonation and a smoothness to the swallow. Aventinus sets such a high bar to touch that I am doubley impressed by the overall excellence of this brew. It is so close that I would not be surprised by someone preferring the domestic version. It's that good.
