pours a cloudy brownish orange very small head leaving just a ring on the glass but a fair amount of lace. smells of rock candy or bubble gum sweet tasting and fruity with a med body. very tasty enjoyable beer I would be interested in food pairings for this beer. again troegs has hit the mark 100%.

On tap at the brewery.
This was poured into a tall tulip.
The appearance was a semi-murky dark bronzed copper color with a slight transparency about it but didn't show any carbonation rising. Light cap of a little white foamy head slid off at a moderate pace. Not much lace, but somewhat stringy here and there.
The aroma had a nice blend of banana esters, clove, crushed coriander, sweet wheat, touch of milk chocolate, bubblegum, earthy spice and just a tickle of an unknown zestiness (different, but I liked it).
The flavor leaned into the bubblegum sweetness with the wheat and then allowing the clove and coriander to coincide with the milk chocolate and earthy spice.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a nice transient sweet wheaty feel along my tongue. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Nicely blended finish of earthiness to spice and banana to bubblegum smoothness.
Overall, very nicely done weizenbock that I would love to come back to.

A-pours an orange copper color with an off white head with average retention
S-banana, clove, bready malt, white grapes
T-more banana and clove, raisin and white grape juice follows, and more clove in the finish
M-medium bodied with average to slightly below average carbonation
O-I have not had many weizenbocks, but it appears to be within the style, and is definitely a tasty brew
