Nice malty aroma with notes of banana, clove, and alcohol. Cloudy, slightly dark amber, but not nearly as dark as I expected of a weizen bock. It Medium sweetness with an alcoholic twang, maybe a touch of bitterness in there. If you want an hefe with more complexity and kick, this is it.

0.5L on draft at Ayinger’s Speis und Trank during 2007 Oktoberfest in Munich
When you’re tired of the tents and fairgrounds of Oktoberfest and want to sit and savor some of the greatest liquids on God’s green Earth, walk through the Marienplatz and head to Speis und Trank. This beer was 0.5L of heaven in a glass. Truly a memorable dark wheat offering from one of the best brewers you’ll find (in my humble opinion, obviously). Wonderful clove aromas augment a beautiful malt flavor that just seduces the front of your taste buds. I believe that this beer went into a wooden barrel less than 24 hours before I drank it. The freshness was that apparent. This is a near-perfect brew, one that did not disappoint my lofty expectations for Ayinger. On par for this style in quality as is Ayinger’s Celebrator for the doppelbock style. Damn fine.

Draught at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Color somewhat orange, pretty modest head. Typical Weißbier nose with banana, although stronger alcohol. Taste is strong in banana, some smoked malts.

Pours hazy orangey honey yellow with white head. The smell is great, sweet rich musty wheat and sort of a clove ginger zest. The taste is equally full with all the above and a nice lemony citrus ting. The carbonation sharpens the flavors with a nice lasting sweet lemon and full grain experience. Very tasty brew.

Wonderful scent and golden orange pour. Smells like a delicious hefeweizen. I think my biggest problem is that it tastes like a delicious hefeweizen and not a weizen bock. It has nothing, at all, in terms of flavor that differentiates it from a good weizen. Let down. Otherwise it tastes really good, just not anything like what you would expect from a weizen-bock.

Poured into weizen and produced a large foamy head that released a lovely aroma. The aroma includes spices, grain, wheat, and some light fruits. Taste expands on those with a definite banana, bubblegum, and alcohol palate and a nice smooth finish. Not very carbonated or biting. OK weibock

Bottle. Pours an orange-straw color with a nice white head. Yeasty aroma, with notes of grass and citrus - very pleasant. A solid example of a Weizenbock - citrus, cloves, a bit of banana, and a lot of slightly bready yeast. Aftertaste isn’t terrific. Pretty nice in all, though.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Delicious wheat aroma and full wheat flavor with citrus notes. Great aftertaste that leaves you wanting. Not dark for a bock but gives a nice full sweet caramel taste and is a great transition beer from winter to spring.
