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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.

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.
