Appearance - cloudy mahogany with five-finger, off-white head that is still thick ten minutes in!

Aroma - clove, banana, and yeasty biscuit dominate the aroma.

Taste - sweet biscuity malt balanced by spicy clove make this one well crafted beer.

Mouthfeel - medium body with effervescent carbonation make it seem lighter than its 8% ABV.

Overall - a magnificent beer that deserves its place amongst the finest in the world.

500ml bottle poured into a flute. Yeast roused and poured.

A: Ruby-brown in color, somewhat hazy. A very creamy off-white head displays the characteristically long-lived retention. A thin slip of lacing slides back down into the glass.

S: Strong berry esters. Prunes. Some phenol action with hints of black pepper and vanilla bean. Toast, coarse wheat, chocolate covered cherries. Bread crust.

T: Fruity up front. Prune, plum, and cherry. Black pepper and a touch of clove. Almost a hint of menthol and some dark rum coming from the alcohol. Wheat and malts begin to pull through in the middle. Coarse wheat, brown bread, toast and crust, hints of black cocoa powder and bakers chocolate. Tootsie roll. Walnuts. Lengthy finish of yeasty spice. Pepper and a slight cinnamon character, wheat and cocoa ride it out too.

M: Medium bodied. Fluffy in the mouth. High level of carbonation makes it seem airy and lighter than it really is. Chewy and somewhat viscous. Subtle warming alcohol.

O: This is one damn good beer. I love a good weizenbock, and I have yet to find a better one than this. World-beating stuff. Why is weizenbock so unknown/under-appreciated? It's crazy.

I love this beer. You pop the cap and get this amazing banana smell, it pours like a picture of what a perfect beer should look like. Great color, cloudy unfiltered liquid bread. Take your first sip expecting it to be very heavy, while the flavor definitely socks you in the mouth, it is surprisingly easy to drink, which at 8.2% can be a bit precarious. Have a driver or better yet, stay home. This beer is a great way to end a day.
