A: Very murky brown cloudy color. The head was dense and towered about two fingers tall. Retention was fantastic.

S: Banana and clove. A touch of sweet darker malts.

T: Once again Banana and clove is most dominant which is typical of German wheat or "weiss" beers. Nothing overly medicinal or fake tasting which was good. Some sweet caramel like malt was also present and provided a nice cushion for the other flavors to rest on. I found that alcohol was a bit to noticeable for my liking.

M: Carbonation is high making the beer a good palate refresher and cleanser. Body is medium and not overly thick.

O: I'm somewhat disappointed I couldn't seem to like this beer as much as other people seem too but none the less it was a good beer. It was my first wiezenbock it was just okay but nothing astounding in my opinion. I probably will revisit it again in the future to see if my tastes for it have changed. Just not exactly to my liking but decent beer I suppose.

From a 500 ml bottle into a hefe glass.

A-The brew is swampy looking and tea-brown in color. It is very murky. The three-finger head of tan foam is dense and lasts quite a while. Not much lacing left behind. The looks aren't spectacular, but are appropriate for the style.

S-The smell is lightly chocolatey with a decent bit of banana-like sweetness and barely-noticeable alcohol. The clove-forward wheat spice is well integrated with the other scents and there is a bit of lemony fruit, too.

T-The taste is full of milk chocolate, caramel, baking spices, and a sweet, banana/ester. There is some lighter, more citrus-like fruit flavor from the alcohol, too. Really delicious.

M-The feel is soft and medium in body with a pleasant touch on the palate. Very drinkable for the ABV.

O-This is a great beer that I wish I could find more often. There is something odd about the mix of chocolate and wheat flavors that really works well here and makes for a good summer beer, even at 8.2 % ABV. This is my favorite of beer of this style by far.

Glassware: Bell's Belgian Style Snifter.

Appearance: Brown in color, this beer is slightly hazy, with no discernible floating particles or sediment. With an average pour, a large 2 finger head with soapy texture was produced that lasted for quite a while. Lacing was sparse.

Smell: Strong smell of toffee, fresh bread, caramel, brown sugar, and general malt sweetness. A roasted quality is also present. Perhaps a bit of gingerbread, as well.

Taste: Taste consists of the same plus banana and bubblegum. Sweet fresh frig taste is also present. Burnt brown sugar abounds. Overall sweetness is moderate to heavy, and overall bitterness is very light.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body, the texture of this beer is thin and slick. Carbonation is average to slightly higher than average.

Overall: This is an amazing beer! Tons of toffee flavor and caramel sweetness, an excellent mouthfeel, and standard appearance make for my favorite doppelbock yet.
