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. Dark amber with a big gushing off white head. Very earthy with some wheat notes. A little bitter. Not great.

TEJA (1522) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Bottle at omhper’s tasting 130817. Lasting light brown head that has big bubbles. Clowdy orange color. Strange aroma from forrest mushrooms and a bit of lactic acidity? The acid also present in the taste in a blend with light roasted malts. Big sparkle and large bitterness for a weissen / acidic beer.

Butters (3930) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Murky dull amber pour with soapy offwhite head. Smells pleasantly of dark cherries and floral hops. Sour/tartness is faint, but the funky/barnyardy character is quite strong on the flavor. Tastes a bit ’dusty’ and chloraseptic. Not bad, but I’d much rather be drinking a bon chien.

crossovert (8604) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Draft. Enjoyed in the accompaniment of Jerome. Hazed golden amber beer. The Sorachi Ace hops are prevalent, large longrass notes, slight brettiness, a nice hoppy and funky wheat beer, delicious.

radagast83 (5368) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
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.

solidfunk (4867) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 25, 2015
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.
