Served from bottle into weisse glass at home. Pours dark amber brown in color, very low clarity with large creamy light tan head. Rich aroma of dark fruit, raisins and prunes with clean caramel malt and a hint of banana. The fruitiness becomes more banana forward as it warms. No hop aroma detectable. Flavor is more dark fruit, with a more "preserved" character compared to the fresher aroma. Complex toasty malt flavor with another small dose of banana. No hop flavor and only a very mild alcohol flavor detectable. Finish is surprisingly crisp for how rich the flavor is. Full bodied, almost creamy with medium carbonation. Very low bitterness. Overall this beer is very enjoyable, the complex aroma and flavor seem to change with each sip. The superb drinkability and intriguing flavors seems to make this beer a standard for the entire style.

Great very malt-forward beer. Scored it for $4 since nobody knew what it was. Would buy again.

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.

Dark amber appearance with one finger tan head that desipates quickly. Sweet fruity aroma with some carbination. Taste is a very smooth sweet and fruity.

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.
