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"!

Pours a darker amber with a smaller off white bubbly head that left slight lacing. Aroma of clove, banana, caramel and molasses. Flavors of the same with a nice body and light alcohol presence.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Draft at Camp Hill. Pours a deep cherry brown with an off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is loaded with banana esters. I mean you can smell it across the room. Texture may be a bit thin for the style. Flavor is not overly complex, but still tasty. Flavors of sweet dark wheat malts, banana, bubblegum with a nice touch of bitterness on the finish. Not bad, one of the better beers of the night.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Deep brown & Cloudy color with medium head. Wheat, sugar & banana aromas. Taste is very sweet with a dark wheat & sugar taste mixed with banana and some other fruits. Nice, refreshing beer that was nowhere near Victory’s W-Bock, but still very drinkable.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Deep coppery turbid pour, with aroma and flavor notes of wheat, banana, clove, and brown sugary malt. Fairly complex, with a fruity, wheaty, smooth finish.

On tap at brewpub in gettysburg was a brown unfiltered color. Had a malty aroma with spices (clove?). Flavor was malty with a clove taste.

The beers at ABC continue to pick up as they get darker. This was a nice weizenbock that I enjoyed as much as any beer I’ve had here thus far. Wheaty and sweet, this went down smooth and I would drink it again.

Really not a bad interpretation of a weizenbock at all. I happenedto have a Moonglow earlier that day and this didn’t hold a candle, but ejoyable, nonetheless.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2006
On tap at Appalaichan brewpub. Opaque brown and light beige head. Lagery wheat aroma (vegetable juice). Taste has notes of v8, speaking of that. Canny, too wheaty. Eh lemon/grass. Tangy, whety, alcohol over-present, the alcohol is about the only bock characted I could detect. NB, my first weizenbock rating; I may revisit this rating. thought this might taste better if it weren’t winter, but it’s listed as a winter beer...

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 pretty good stuff one of ABC’s best i would have to say. Has a nice golden cloudy colour. Fluffy white head. nice spice/clove taste to it.
