2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft pint at Appalachain in Harrisburg. Poured from the tap a very cloudy (muddy) brown with little to no head. Heavy on the candied banana, sharp alcohol, sharply astringent malts and soggy bread and toast notes up front, with a similar smell. The body on this completely falls apart over the middle, and it finishes with more simple candied banana flavors and a strikingly astringent grain husk note. The alcohol is far too apparent for something of this weight, and overall it’s just unappealing in all respects.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Draft at the Gettysburg brewpub. Happy Birthday, honey! Ruddy red with a thin creamy off-white head. Lightly yeasty aroma which is a bit better pronounced in the first sip. Tad tangy with a twinkle of clovey spices and a sweet bready finish. (#3288, 1/11/2008)
