3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 777. I had contemplated keeping this for some reason but thought that this was only a number. Hopefully fortuitous, but no really big deal. The nose is crisp with the dry hopping of the said amarillo, simcoe, chinook and cascade. The appearance in the glass is cloudy with a patina of creaminess in the head. There is a certain unfermented graininess in the taste and the mouthfeel is slightly thin notwithstanding the ABV. A good beer but it does not present to me that it is a weizenbock given the absence of fruity esters that should define this beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 17/09/14. I’ve had this a while and it’s aged really well. Pours mahogany coloured with a big whitish head. A good strong wheaty beer with loads of hops. A good sweet edge at first but then late sharp hoppiness takes over. Lovely complexity and superb depth, Ace.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13, etter det offisielle programmet ("fra gribbebordet": fikk bare en liten rest, så den var ganske grumset. Noterte karamellsødme i lange baner, med noe humle mot slutten. Mer som en søt eisbock enn en hvetebock, men det spiller forsåvidt ingen rolle. Vil gjerne prøve den på nytt i mer objektiv tilstand.
