3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2012 Bottle @ home. Golden yellow orange appearance with small off white head. Wheat and bock nose with a fairly strong smell with a bit of citrus. Wheat flavor initially with a wine-like quality that is really the bock flavor. Sweet and alcohol fueled finish. Pretty well carbonated. Pretty good weizenbock.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Recent bottle. Pours big head on lighter yellow body. Aroma is pure bannana, good thick mouthfeel, and bannana in the taste. More like a hefeweizen. Drinkability was good. I was looking for more of an edge and complexity I love so much in weizenbocks. This was full, just the bannana overode the taste department.
