Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
A good dose of nutmeggy, slightly clovey banana bread escapes the glass as the dull brown beer with a lasting dark beige foam is being poured. Not as explosive as some, but unmistakable Weizenbock character, with a grainier, fairly malty flavour profile reminiscent of raisin cookies. Doughyness is never far behind and spies over your shoulder as you delve deeper into this agreeable, spot on example. Was that a vegetable undertone in the background; perhaps, but if it were, as with a Saison Dupont for instance, it is not a poor fit with the yeast character. Pretty ample texture, feeling round in spite of the generous carbonation and sugar levels kept at reasonably low levels.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Bananas, cloves, earth and raisins interlock in this effervescent, refined Weizenbock, leading to bitter hops and more earthy lengths.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam decorates the misty dark purple.
-The flavor profile is not as intense and not as yeasty as Aventinus (for example).
-The yeast pour obfuscates but a portion of the flavor profile.
-The mouthfeel is lean and nicely drinkable.
-This textbook example may not be that memorable, but it is very well crafted and highly enjoyable.

ThirstyBird (1506) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark orange/brown with a very large tan head. The smell is banana, clove, toffee, rich fruit, wheat, yeast, mild bubblegum. The taste is clove, banana, roasted malt, wheat, ending spicy and a bit dry. There is definite sweetness in the middle and a bit of alcohol as well. The body is medium with average carbonation.

Murky brown, large fluffy head. Bottle fermented, according to the label. Grain, soft wheat malt, some proper bopck sourness. Prunes. Dry tail.

Idiosynkrasie (3707) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 18, 2012
500ml bottle. Hazy glimmering copper with average frothy off-white head. Light wheaty aroma, a bit grassy, a herbal note. Fizzy, dry, wheaty and sourish taste. A bit unbalanced and not unelaborated.

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle 50cl, a cloudy amber beer with a good creamy head. Nose is nicely fruity. Aroma is on banana syrup with toasted malt and brown malt aroma, sweet, body is medium and aftertaste is a bit short. A good weizenbock perfectly done pleasant and drinkable.

50 cl bottle, rated on 19.10.2010
Murky and brown. Aroma is sweet and typical to a weizen bock with ripe banana and some wheat. Dry flavour has too ripe banana, alcohol and toffee. Not good.

Koelschtrinker (10435) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Fruchtig hefiger Antrunk, der bereits alkoholisch angeaucht ist. Das Malz hält sich vornehm zurück, bleibt aber zu lange im Hintergrund und zeigt sich erst im Nachgeschmack, aber selbst dort nur als Beinote. Zwischenzeitlich muffig-säuerlich, was das Bier leider im Mittelteil prägt. Weil das Malz kaum präsent ist nisten sich andere typische Weizennoten ein, die das Bier frisch und (zu) leicht wirken lassen. Leichter Weizenbock für Einsteiger. 13/8/8/11/11/9
