Actually-this is my first experience with this beer.

A- Body is a uniformly translucent rich chestnut brown hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy slightly off-white head which eventually fades to a thick collar-very little lacing is left behind in the glass.

S- I understand that this is a weizenbock- but the nose is very BSDA in nature- dark fruit-plum, raisin- come out the most initially in the nose. There is a mild banana bread essence in the background.

T- Taste upfront is mild and offers dark fruit (as discribed above) with an accent of banana and clove- and a nice bready yeast backbone. The finish is a bit spicier and more typical for the style as the banana bread essence really comes through and the dark fruit disappears. What is left to linger is bready yeast and a bit of spice.

M- Medium to high carbonation and a smooth yeasty body.

D- This is a great, well put together Weizenbock. I'm surprised that this is the first time I have tried it as it is clearly top notch for the style- and I like this style (despite its huge variation). A reminder why I love German beers so much-although I tend to overlook them.

I found this 500ml bottle for $4!! Its also always refreshing to see this brew in the top 100 (deviating form the IPA, stout, barrel aged, sour dominated list). Fantastic, classic example of the style to measure others to.
