3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler straight from the fermentation tank. Muddy chestnut color, small tan head. Aroma of of grapefruit bubblegum, lemon rind, caramel, toasty edge. Taste is fruity bubblegum, caramel, butterscotch. Lots of potential, but needs some time in the brightening tank to settle and gain more carbonation, and maybe lose a bit of the booziness. Nice stuff anyway.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Banana and balsamic with some cloves and brown sugar. Not much of a hop aroma. Dark brown amber hazy with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation and alcoholic warming. Starts sweet and sour with some balsamic bananas and strawberries. Very sweet finish with carbonic-acetic acidity. Sharp would be a good description. Sweet finish with alcohol and carbonic bite. Cidery. Not quite a subtle weizenbock.

Poured a murky brown color, small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is sweet notes of apples, touch of dark fruits. Initially i didnt enjoy this one, but as it warmed, started liking it a lot more.
