Interesting beer that didn’t quite work for me. Dark amber pour. Sour aroma with a lit bit of coffee and spices. Wild yeast prevalent. Some banana and clove presence as well. Weizen bock?I got a little bit of coffee...mostly graininess, but definitely not a coffee beer. Lot going on beer for sure. Glad to try.

Draft at Churchkey thanks to solidfunk. Poured a hazy dark amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma had some banana, not a lot of cloves. Wheat. Aroma was a hay, floral character.

An easy drinking and good beer but not among my favorite weizenbocks. At this price I won’t be indulging in another one. Pours hazy amber with OK head and lacing. Some citrus and light booze. Florals. Hint of oak. Tap at Churchkey.

Eritarka (9) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2014 does not count
Pours a hazy amber, the little head is just not white anymore. The distinct BFM aroma is present and with it some fruit and malt aromas, light banana. Good full bodied mouthfeel with a spicy finish with almost a warming alcoholic character. Long lasting bitter and slightly astringent aftertaste. Pleasant beer, the coffee is hidden well and it definitely packs a punch.

Boutip (4964) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light clear brown color bock with a medium size off-white foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of tart and hoppy notes with quite strong floral coffee aromas. Taste is unique mixes of tart notes mix in with dry hoppy notes with some floral coffee notes with light dry bitterness. Body is light with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very unique mix of flavours but not sure I would feel the need to drink this again.

(Draught) cloudy copper/ruby, no real head. Nose of tart cherry, cellar floor, very light moss, rose water, bits of honey and sweet citrus peel. Mostly a tart beer but super complex.

Another brew on someone else’s expense account. I can’t tell if everything BFM brews is a tongue in cheek sour or what? This was a sour beer not a Weizen Bock. I can only assume it was unintentional. Pours medium amber with nice white head. Sour grapes and fruit on the nose. Nice flavor balance of sour and sweet. Live. Draft - Porter Beer Bar - Atlanta, GA
