16.9 oz. bottle

Pours rusty copper amber reddish-orange brown with a large, dense, creamy khaki colored foam head. Smells like big red and black grapes, some plum, red apple, toasted bready malts, wheat, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, banana, pear, apricot, clove spice, with mild earthy grassy herbal pine. Tastes like apples, pear, apricot, banana, dark grapes, plum, toasted bready malts, wheat, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, clove spice, with earthy grassy herbal pine. Feels medium bodied, thick and creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a really great weizenbock.

pint bottle, shared with my father-in-law who loves all things German. I've had this many times, but surprisingly never gave it an official review.
A - opaque brown colored body with a foamy tan head
S - caramel and bready malt, banana, yeast, clove
T - doppelbock meets hefeweizen; notes of caramel, toffee, bread crust, a bit of dark fruits along with yeast, clove and banana esters, faint lemon, and earthy hops
M - fuller body, very creamy and smooth, alcohol is warming but not overly strong, finishes sweet with clove and earthy hops lingering
O - classic representation of the Weizenbock style. A true winner to recommend to anyone.

The white head is thin, but makes a stubborn attempt at leaving lace. The ruby tinged body is an opaque brown ombré. The aroma is impactful. Apricot marmalade, a slight fringe of caramelized brown sugar, and some oaky orchards of golden apples. A high level of carbonation lightens and brightens the flavor, which would otherwise be much darker than the scent would have one believe. Brown sugar, plums, and dark cherries are balanced by sweet green pears and golden apples. Some lightly smoked cloves weave their way through the layers, rounding out the beer's signature refined complexity. The medium-light mouthfeel defies the higher ABV, and alcohol warming is undetectable. Not mind-blowing, perhaps, but a solid, traditional take on this fine, age-old style.

A very nice hefe. Smooth balanced. Sweet. Less banana with spice. Get it. Drink it regularly.

L: gives a cloudy dark brown color with a nice creamy top of head. Thick lacings on the glass.

S: caramel,toast,raisins, figs, candied sugar, banana, cloves and other spices.

T&F: breaded malt and caramel in the start with some fruity sweetness. Very rounded flavour with a very creamy mouthfeel. More spicier in the finish with a long dry aftertaste. The flavour is really comfortable and complex. Good carbonation.

O: a really delicious weizenbock. This is a real sipper that I enjoyed every moment of. One of the best of this style I have tried. Sure going trie this again.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy light brownish amber with a healthy head. Lacing. The nose gets the bananas, caramel and some alcohol. Classic weizenbock taste - a bit of malt, bananas and some alcohol. Some carbonation bite. Dangerous!
