COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This top-fermented, unfltered Wheat Bock beer is the counterpart to Bayern’s famous Doppelbock Lager. Bayern’s only decoction-brewed beer, the recipe uses five types of malt (Wheat, Pilsener, Carmel, Munich and Chocolate), and has an o.g. of > 17 % Plato, producing a stout 7.5 % Alc. by Vol. As with all Bayern wheat beers, Face Plant surprises with its complex flavor. German Hallertauer Perle hops give this hearty Bock beer a perfectly balanced sweetness.

Bottle to solved plastic cup to drink discretely in the presence of my mother in law. My first wiezen bock. Brown color, off-white head. Aroma is toasty sweet malt. Taste is the same, plus bready yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation. Overall: the bottle art/name reminds me of all of my outdoor winter sport experiences. Sweet, drinkable, very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bookseeb (118) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Appearance is a dark amber brown supporting a steady healthy head leaving spotty lace. Smell is faint with dark malt, dark fruits and yeast. Taste of the dark malt, prunes and a little spiciness from the yeast. Mouthfeel has a medium body with a good spike of carbonation. For an American Weizen its not bad with the extra kick.

a nice nutty and wheaty aroma. a good body for a wheat with a bit of malty flavor. a nice creamy finish with a hint of hops again stronger than a normal wheat.
