COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volks Weizenbock combines the strong malty component of a bock bier with the tangy, spiciness of the Hefe Weizen. This beer is brewed 1 1/2 times stronger than our Hefe Weizen and is aged commensurately longer for extra smoothness! Volks Weizenbock is "The Peoples Beer"!

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!

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2011
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-brown color with a large creamy beige head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was sourdough bread, brown sugar, lemon, clove, cherry and a hint of nutmeg. The flavor was tangy and citric with notes of clove, brown sugar, cherry, sourdough bread, nut and faint hints of anise and nutmeg. The finish was long with sourdough, brown sugar and cherry lingering. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.

Dark brown with a white head when poured. The head doesn’t last long when poured. A very unique flavor. Has a flavor of hops with a slight citrus flavor.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle: Pours a transparent deep dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasted wheat and dark fruity nose with a touch of bready yeast. Starts with pretty good fullness and lightly sweet biscuity dark wheat and caramel maltiness with some light fruity notes before a slightly drier and thinner finish. Pretty true to style, but could use a little more body and complexity.

jgb9348 (4707) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Very hazy amber coloured body with a nice thin tan head on top and a very nice caramel honey colour with a lot of haze at the bottom. Aroma of potent alcohol, yeast, wheat, raisins, figs, pit fruits, nuts and a touch of spice - very potent and nice. Medium to Full-bodied; Potent yeast and wheat flavour with a lot of raisins and pit fruits coupled with some caramel and mellow sweetness. Aftertaste is sweet with a little malt dryness and a touch of the yeast flavours throughout. Overall, a nice weizenbock with good sweetness, some dry and spicy notes and a large malt and yeast presence. Nice to try and pretty respectable for the style! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Market Cellars in Reston, Virginia on 11-December-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 11-January-2011.

Bomber from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy red-amber color. Thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of banana cream pie, yeast and a mustard-like note. The taste is caramel, banana, yeast, bread, spicy notes, leafy bitter hops. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.
