UrbanCaveman (193) - Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Standard bottle, poured into a weizen glass at ~40 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a deep honey gold, so cloudy one can barely make out the shadows of their fingers on the other side of the glass, and forms a pale just-off-white head which dies away rather quickly. Lacing is fairly pedestrian. Smell: Not unlike a wheat field near a mixed orchard of banana and pear trees bursting with ripeness, with bush-sized clumps of coriander and clove dotting the landscape. Taste: Starting cold, this is heavy with coriander, intensely orange and citric, with supporting buttresses of banana and bubblegum flavors. As it warms, the coriander recedes to being one of several small towers, alongside the banana and bubblegum, with notes of clove and faint pear. It still strikes me as almost more wit-like than hefe-like. Mouthfeel: Light, lively, bubbly, and refreshing. Overall: A darned good beer, if not quite up to the standard of their Brau Weisse for me. This feels less like a concentrated weissbier and more like a blend of one with a wit, but that’s hardly a bad thing in my book!

Substantial aroma. Wheat and banana that is good with heavier meals. Nice head retention.

malrubius (2616) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 6, 2009
33cl bottle straight from Munich courtesy of my mother-in-law in the funky new Sam Adams glass which is almost weizen shaped. Cloudy orange with big fluffy white head and lotsa lace. Lots of banana clove bubble gum bread and citrus in the aroma. Sweet peach apricot vanilla with medium wheat tang and sweet vanilla finish. No alcohol burn and no residual bitterness. Just delicious and complex for the style. Awesome.

Bottle. Clear-to-opaque apricot trumpet fizzing madly beneath a high silky white head. Aroma is wow; toffee apple rolled in clove, orange rind, lemon meringue pie, dribble making Bazooka chew, lemon sherbet, bananas on toast sprinkled with cinnamon, Hoegaarden and all manner of sexual confectionary. Fat and lovely with honeyed banana, clove; candy cigarettes and gentle warming alcohol. Bulbous exotic spice without spice. How do they do it?? A beer to simply marvel at, whilst chucking a few pints down your neck. It’s wintery, it’s summery, it’s perfect fireside refreshment for an English May evening with a gale howling down the chimney and the rain lashing against the windowpane. Top 10 material, no questions.

Pershing (525) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Cloudy straw (I was expecting it slightly darker) with a thick white creamy cap that hangs around for a while. Banana and bubble gum with a mild spice aroma. Nice carbonation level that fits the style. 7.1 ABV is hardly noticeable. Nice clean somewhat filling finish. An excellent Fall/Spring brew.

ElGaucho (2393) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle. Hard to imagine a weizen bock with a better aroma. Sweet, with banana, alcohol, creaminess. Very inviting. A little thinner bodies than the aroma would suggest, at first impression. But as the palate adjusts, there’s clearly plenty of flavor here. Alcohol doesn’t really avail itself. A really nice beer. Surprised I haven’t had it before.

What a beer. Massive banana cream pie nose. Overripe bananas, and a hint of tartness. A bit of warm spice on the palate that lingers. More bananas, sweet dough and a touch of citrus. Absolutely smooth as silk going down. This is great stuff.

500 ml bottle. Pours a murky straw color with a frothy white head. Aroma of bananas, clove, wheat, and bubblegum. Taste is much like the nose. Distinct taste of banana, wheat, clove, and hints of vanilla. Medium bodied with a nice creamy mouth-feel. Slight bittersweet finish. Really enjoyable.

Wow is this good. Nice wheat/bock base. But I’m getting Banana in spades -- and it works, and it’s wonderful. Slightly sweet. Incredibly good.
