Bomber from TheEpeesist. Nose is fruity with a funny pineapple guava, way overripe banana, apple note, mixed with a sweet coffee note. Lightly hazy copper with a small pale beige head. Flavor is fruity with a light cloves note, and toffee and a hint of bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep caramel-amber into the glass, with a fully diminished head that leaves no ring nor lacing of which to speak. The nose is doughy and malty. Flavors are similar, light caramel, lots of sourdough, a hint of tannins, and finishing with crisp carbonation and a lingering sour cherry. The mouthfeel is medium and semi-active, with a juice-like texture. Not bad, but somewhat forgettable.

22 oz bottle, love the label. Hazed cola brown with a spongy oatmeal head. Nose is candied walnuts, grape, dates and banana. Medium body with a lively tingle. Taste is green banana, clove and burnt sugar. OK for the style but nothing to bring me back.

Bottle. Wheat and clove aroma. Hazy dark amber body. Flavor begins with wheat and subtle sweetness, followed by clove, spice and fruit. Malt finish. Very smooth and well balanced. Alcohol is well hidden and tastes much lighter than the actual abv.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Ruby brown, aroma is strong sweet and spicy. Cloves banana and some caramel malt sweetness. Nicely carbonated. Banana sweetness blends nicely with the malt sweetness. Spicy finish to balance out the sweet sticky flavors. Like this style and this beer.

Draft at the gettysburg local. Pours a clear reddish brown, and an off-white head. Banana, wheat, bubble gum, light spice, and sugary sweetness. Thin-medium body. I don’t like this style very much, and I didn’t like this beer very much.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderately strong aroma of fig, almond, stewed apples, and clove, with an undercurrent of chocolate, really nice and dunkelweizenish. Mild babyfood quality. Clear tea colored, no head. The flavor is more of a stewed apple and clove variety, much less dynamic than the aroma. Medium body, can be tart. Alcohol well concealed. Somewhere between dunkelweizen and weizen bock, it’s a good offering for fans of both styles.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m surprised at the low scores. Pours from bottle dark brown with a light brown head. Big estery notes on the nose. Nice banana notes on the tongue mixed with a slight caramel. Finishes fairly dry. Very nice!

22 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a cloudy, dull, orange-gold-amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of banana, nuts, raisins, sweet bready malts, caramel, and clove. The flavor follows the same lines- sweet, fruity, and malty- with a little brown sugar and cola. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, malty, fruity mouthfeel. Very solid weizen bock, even better than I’d expected.
