Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy gold with a one finger soapy white head that lingers for a bit. Big banana aromas with grainy wheat bread notes. Sweet on the palate with a medium to full-body and average carbonation. Light booze on the finish with banana and a grain.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle from Yamaoka for 400 on sale as it's a bit old - 6 months. It's a golden foamy honey copper with a soapy head of foam. Rich malty clove aroma the taste is a bit astringent crackery cloves. Probably past it's prime but still nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Cloves, bananas and herbal hops coexist harmoniously in this chewy, bitter Heller Weizenbock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy pale blond.
-Carbonation is soft and feels natural.
-Mouthfeel is lean and very drinkable for a brew this gravity.
-This is on the hoppy side for a Weizenbock.
