Hazy reddish brown body with sediment floating.

The smell is fresh, perfectly ripe bananas, brown sugar, and cloves.

It's a tastey weizenbock, to be sure. Phenolic banana flavors, brown sugar, caramel, and a spiced chai tea.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with moderate carbonation.

This is the most flavorful I've had of the style and a very enjoyable beer. I'll definitely pick up some more of this next season.

A hazy dark copper beer with a four-finger head, although minimal lacing, and a sweet toffee-like nose with some fruity notes. I found it quite complex on the tongue--caramel, raisins and apples, some yeast, a little bit of vanilla and clove, and a very long finish, with lots of clove on the tongue even a minute after the swallow and a lovely warming quality. Yum! What a great late fall beer!
