tasted it on solothurn beer-days 2012. darker amber-orangeish hazy beer with an offwhite head. smells sourish-yeasty-fruity all together. tasts more refreshing than expected by reading the vol%., has citrus notes. aftertaste is a bit hoppier with nice bitterness,some alcohol, and still with some citrus. i liked it! sourish but not too sourish, fruity, not so sweet like other bocks, wow!

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish copper with a nice beige head and a marvelous fruit and malt aroma. There is a dry fruity wheat malt flavor with a coffee finish. Very tasty.

Capped 750 from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very hazy dark orange amber with a creamy beige head. Light aromas of coffee and malt. Full bodied. Flavor is coffee and toffee, and banana ester. Finishes less than dry. Quite smooth and refined.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured an hazy brownish orange color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy coffee, banana and clove aroma. Medium body with a dry sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

On tap at Kickbacks, pours a dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head, the aroma has a decent amount of coffee mixed in with some dark chocolate, the flavor is much of the same, the abv comes through a little more than I was expecting, meh.

33cl bottle (batch 5) - poured WITH sediment and you can wag your finger all you want! pours deep amber with tan head and decent lacing. Nose is sour fruit and leather. Batch 5 may be infected; let’s see how the flavor does. Flavor adds coffee, alcohol, vinous notes, and wood. Dry. not what I expect from a weizen bock, but then again, I’ve only had samples from the US and Germany. I just want to keep drinking it to figure it out and I’ve probably had more than half already. Sour and sweet. Sour berry aftertaste. I like it, though theoretically, I shouldn’t. WTF?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. Ain’t that a B, a coffee-spiked Weizenbock! Pour is initially deep gold but settles into near russet, with an initially buoyant head backing off to pert bubbles around the edge. Coffee wafts out initially but the base notes in the nose are a bit quirky, with pickled peppers, ripe bread yeast, a touch of anise, and some citrus. Kinda out but it worked for me. Taste is just a smidge off of this impression, with citrus and mild tartness seeming to emerge from the raw yeastiness to submerge the coffee for the most part. More bean would have been more rad, but I kinda dug its weirdness.
