Well it’s not quite winter yet, but we were ready for this beer. Never brewed in Nashville before, this full-bodied, dark wheat beer has been very popular in our other breweries. The richness and strength of this beer make it perfect for the cooler weather. Basically a “weizenbock” formulation, this beer is fermented with our regular house yeast. O.G. 1065 I.B.U. 21

Sample at Boscos. Pours a golden color, but the aroma is not like other wheat beers. Hoppy smell. Taste is thicker and more hoppy than I expected. The aftertaste is unusual, something like malts, not sure, but I didn't like it on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught as "Bosco’s Dark Wheat." I assume these two beers are the same as they are both dark wheat beers brewed with the regular Bosco’s Yeast and the O.G and IBU levels are rather close. Pours a cloudy amber/brown with a perfumey nose. It’s quite sweet smelling with only vague hints at fruits. The flavor is slightly chalky with muddle esters. It’s bready and yeasty for sure with a sweet finish and spiced character only as an afterthought.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Draft at brewpub. Faint aroma of bread, grains, and dark fruit. Flavor of caramel, belgian funk, raisens, and wheat malt. There is definitely some hop bitterness to balance it out on the finish. Typical Boscos house yeast on the finish. This is nothing like a weizenbock in the the description. Like a few other boscos beers, this struggles for identity.

Hesitant to waste myself on a wheat but I found winter wheat to be quite different and very refreshing. Flavor was enhanced by the finely grilled steak I ate with it.

BeerandBlues2 (12193) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Draught. Pours clean mahagony and still bubbles with a rocky off-white head. Sweet caramel nutty malt (grain, cookie) and yeast (sweat, dough) aroma with fruit (prune, raisin) notes. Sweet caramel malt and light chocolate/cocoa flavor with yeast and pruen, plum notes. Medium bodied and warming thin palate.
