This I liked, but maybe too much alcohol. After a day of tasting I bumped into this. Slight fruity nose along with nice malting. Spicy finish. A tad too heavy on the carbonation (a critique, not a complaint).

The recently released 04 version of this seasonal brew has been kicked up to 8% abv. An unfiltered copper appearance with an average size head offered up the fruity banana esters of a typical hefe, complimented by a malty, earthy aroma. Nicely carbonated, with a smooth, medium-to-full bodied flavor with a long, slightly sweet, fruity finish. A worthy alternative to the proliferation of octoberfests around this time of year.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 Pale and cloudy in appearance with a small head. Aroma is sweet and mildly spiced. This beer is very smooth and creamy, reminding me strongly of a banana milkshake. My only complaint would be that this beer was a bit too sweet for me, although I didn't have any trouble finishing my glass. Overall, quite nice, but I think that next time I would have it with dessert rather than with my meal.

[On tap] Cloudy amber color. Strong clove and banana aroma, typical of the style. Excellent flavor profile filled the whole tongue. Perhaps a tad too sweet, but that's arguable. An excellent brew!

Hazy light brown color with a very small head. Aroma of banana, and clove. Malty flavors accompanied by the banana and some spiciness. A decent offering.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Very hazy amber colour with a thin tan head. Potent aroma of bananas, cloves and yeast. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong malty flavour with the added aformentioned sweetness. Aftertaste shows a lot of spiceyness: cloves, coriander seed and nutmeg. Overall, a nice weizen bock from the Mid-Atlantic! I had this on draught at the Pizza Plant in Buffalo, New York.

(Served via growler) Big banana and clove nose. The palate is nourishing with, a smooth mouth feel. The finish is full of malt and flavorful yeast. Tasty weizenbock.

dukefan (215) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2003
An excellent beer with exceptional hints of banana and clove. There are many better Weizenbocks on the market, but the smooth, subtle hints that this beer gives make this more of a classic style of this beer.

Sampled at brewery. Color of muddy water - half a week or so of additional lagering would not have hurt, bad head retention. Nice banana and clove with a good full body. Not quite up to par with the weizenbocks I have become used to here in Bavaria, but not bad either.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 2, 2002
Sampled at the brewery--good head over hazy light brown body. Fine, full mouthfeel with flavors of banana, clove and spice in huge quantities. I don’t perceive some of the bubblegum flavors I’ve detected in previous years nor the piercing fruitiness I’ve had in the past for this one. Still, very nice.
