COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Weizenbock is a pale, golden color, and like a bottom-fermented bock, has a high starting gravity and high alcohol content. The smooth, malty sweetness of a Weizenbock is balanced with clove, honey and fruit-like flavors. A touch of honey is also perceivable in the nose to produce a unique and complex aroma. It has a medium to full body and mouthfeel. The wheat adds a subtle tartness, which makes for quite a quenching and refreshing beer.

This poured a darker yellow to red color with a tiny beige head. Aroma was lots of spices, mainy wheat, yeast, and coriander with some clove there too. Flavor was a very nice balanced of spice, some herbal hops actually which is amazing for how old this is, and just the slightest Alcohol. Great stuff, not very oxidized at all.

Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a cloudy pale orange. Intense aroma of marshmallow and melted toffee. Flavor is very sweet of toffee with a touch of cough medicine that works for whatever reason. Some notes of marshmallow and booze. Thin and delicate body. This was delicious, intense, and well-rounded. What a surprise and treat!

tepid gold. Honey grain and spice in nose, light cinnamon. Sweet honey and caramel, wheat, grain, oxidized and thin body, but spice and grain work together.

rating 2100. Vintage í99 Bottle shared at RBSG2011 by EDA. Thanks Mike! Cork completely fell apart as Mike tried to open this. Great team effort to prepare this legendary brew for proper sampling. Pours golden with a light white head. Brown sugar, light oxidation, honey, banana, some raisins, caramel, coffeecake. This has held up incredibly well.

Rating #100 for this beer! 750mL at RBSG 2011 Philly. Didnít even know this beer existed. Poured a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Nose is toffee and barleywine like with orange mint and golden raisins. Taste is sweet, minty, old orange peel. As it warms, loads of licorice and mint pile on with slight oxidation. Interesting- would have fooled me for an aged barleywine. Pretty nice.

Hazed orange pour with very light white head and lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and paper. Light sweet caramel and mint. No paper as would be expected from a beer this old. Pretty damn nice.

Sweet and malty nose with lots of toffee and golden fruits. The taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, with lots of banana, peach and pear, some apple skins and lots of oxidized caramel. Definitely has held up well.
