Nice fruity smelling orange beer with an of white head. Smells like apricot, peach, banana and cloves. Nice and sweet with the same flavors as in the nose. The peach and apricot are refreshing and the banana and clove give it that Belgian character I love. Great beer.

Soft fruit aroma peaches, apricot, prunes.

Flavour as above with a little banana, cloves after. Little or no detectable hop.

Creamy full mouth with significant carbonation.

Overall nicely balanced.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Very tall, toothpaste spit like head, with a golden blonde body 100% opaque.

Aroma of smoked malts, canned peaches, apricot, pears, and pineapple; some cocktail cherries thrown in there for good measure. Wheat malt, no hop aroma.

Flavor is as if ice cubes melted in the aroma and transferred the the flavor. It's a touch washed out but nothing I can't handle. Most prominent flavors are the wheat malt, the smoke, and day old canned peaches. Much of the other flavors are in the background...stringy pineapple and pears.

Feel is creamy as usual, with a near perfect carbonation laying underneath.

Overall, it's not half as good as Vitus, but it's a great alternative if there's no other Weizenbocks around.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a quarter inch frothy head. Smell is very estery. Taste is more malty than estery and has a slight bitterness in the back of the tongue. I've never been a big fan of wheaty beers, but this one is really good.

Very smooth and balanced. Banana, spicy, rich and complex. No bitter aftertaste. The creamy mouthfeel is partially due to above average carbonation. Definitely worth a taste and a go to brew.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Cloudy golden yellow with a nice initial head and decent lacing. Great clove, nutmeg, and banana smell and taste. Sweet and a bit citrusy. Loved it!

just an exceptional brew.
Hides the abv quite well.
pours a dirty yellow. taste has that typical belgian weisse stuff going on, but with an exponent next to each characteristic. Booms with clove flavors, and orange/lemon notes. Tons of gnarly yeast cake at the bottom. Unfiltered, unabashed greatness. This is a real beer right here. Mouthfeel is chewy, and the aftertaste lingers for what seems like forever. THere's the typical, almost Paulaner-Hefe powdered sugar thang with a lime twist going-on too. SUch a flavorful and wonderful offering. Top 5 beer for me personally.

Pours a very hazy dirty straw color with well over a finger of head. The nose has notes of wheat, funk and cloves. The flavor follows the nose.

The flavors are not as deep and malty as other examples of this style.

L - golden yellow body with thick lingering head
S - banana, citrus, sweet honey notes, biscuity
T - similar to the smell. Banana, citrusy, sweet fruity and bready. Nice maltyness
F - smooth beer with slight carbonation that completes the beer perfectly. Light coat on the palate.
O - I really enjoyed this beer. From the pour to the finish. Really good beer. Looks pretty, taste great and easy sinking. I could drink a lot of these
