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!

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

Idiosynkrasie (3236) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 17, 2014
750ml bottle. Murky dark golden to amber colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Fruity and minimally herbal hoppy aroma, hints of berries, old red apple and peach. Taste is fruity, minimally wheaty, hints of yellow stone fruit, mirabelle and the like, subtle sweetness, a minimal tart touch, bitter and slightly herbal hoppy overtones; dry finish with a touch of coffee, fine pored carbonation. Relatively light and hoppy, neither overly wheaty nor creamy.

kevinator (716) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2014
Good and interesting. Aroma of malts, sour fruit and yeast. It had a nice clear amber color with strong lacing from the creamy head. Watery palate with a slight puckering and dry finish. This was unlike any Weizen Bock I’ve had. It was more like a soft sour and more wine like. Fruity esters and soft maltiness. Little to no hops presence. I did not detect the coffee. Alcohol hidden well. Glad for the chance to try it.

Again with the coffee added to something other than a stout. Have to say I am a fan of this trend, though there is nothing wrong with a good coffee stout. Thick, textured head above hazy copper. The coffee is quite subtle. Also subtle sweet and sour fruits, grain and earthiness.

maekchu (1762) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atl Hwy). Fruit juice nose: apple and light orange, Sauvin too, and overall a bit wine-like. Hazy light copper color. Very fruity initial: stewed and fermenting apples and pears / some wheaty notes and the tiniest bit of coffee in mid / light bittering in finish and then it gets sweet again. Interesting beer. The coffee, which is not very strong, and the Nelson Sauvin combine in a unique way. Never really tasted anything quite like it.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Ooohhh, good! A sour!!! Opaque brandy colour. Small white ring head. Sour aroma that’s oh, so nice. Flavor is dense and like oak. Thick on the palate and a little dense going down. Nice aroma. Too bad Swiss. And this is anything but a weizenbock. Its way too sour.

reddfoxx (1) - USA - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
On draft at Nik’s Wunderbar Bavarian bier gaarten. Definite fruit tartness w/a mild touch of coffee on the finish. The coffee is quite subtle to the point I might not have gotten it if not for the brewery’s description. An amazingly weird weizen bock that is well worth the try and a definite revisit

SlovakSniper (2810) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Une longue bouteille qui expulse une robe rousse. La naissance et la mort d’une tête mousseuse plutôt sale. Un nez doux, caramélisé, débordant de cuir et de fruits mangés par les microbes. Des saveurs qui me prennent par surprise. Des bretts, du pain grillé, des épices et une touche citronnée. Une bouche très tranquille, de densité normale et légèrement huileuse. Une finale fruitée et légèrement acide, complexe, avec des pointes maltées sèches et des touches poivrées. Cette bière est très intéressante mais aussi très étrange. Je suis envoûté par le bon goût des levures sauvages. Une création unique.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Bouteille de 750ml. Bière cuivrée avec une belle tenue de mousse beige. Un nez de blé au caramel. Une surprenante bouche légèrement aigre avec des notes de caramel, sucrée, vineuse. Une finale vineuse aux saveurs de bile.
