Deep colored beer with a nice head. Really pretty look to this brew. The Scent is bready malt and slight banana, very much like their hefeweizen. My first impression is that this is a really smooth beer for this high of an alcohol content. Bread, banana, clove and alcohol all play a part in the flavor mix. Decently carbonated and creamy mouthfeel. Good beer here.

Pours a rusty copper color. Hazy and mostly opaque. Pillowy off-white head dissipates leaving a thin spotty layer of foam thicker around the outer ring. Not much sticky lacing is left behind on the glass.

Smell has notes of golden wheat, peppery yeast, red wine grapes, apple, and clove.

Taste follows the nose with an overarching wheat flavor throughout the beer. Hints of red wine grapes, apple, and dark fruits are present in the flavor. The flavor is really where you get that more traditional doppelbock flavor coming through. Hops are very mild and more earthy in character - more complimentary. Tad bready on the finish.

Feel is medium bodied, yet very drinkable. Medium slightly prickly carbonation. Dry finish builds up leaving the mouth feeling pretty dry.

Overall a wonderful weizenbock - one of, if not, the best example of the style. Also, just a wonderfully crafted beer regardless of the style. A must try for any fan of good beer.
