Nose is booze laden, toffee, treacle, spice, nutty leanings, dark fruit tang.
Taste comprises bitter dark fruits, toffee, banana, yeast esters, strong booze load.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, hot boozey closure.
Ok - drinkable but glad not to be taking on this bottle on my own, a little unblanced and hot.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky deep brown with a small tan head. The nose is candy, blackcurrant, stewed berry, Xmas pudding, jam, spice and leather. The taste is sweet, jammy berry, blackcurrant, spice, toffee, earth, some alcohol and bread with a dry finish. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Lots of jammy berry action going on. A bit sweet for liking, but alright.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle cheers to Colin. I haven’t had a great deal of experience with Weizenbock. This seems to have bucket loads of stewed fruits, brown sugar and tarty berries. Big date and toffee focus. Taste is again brown sugar and stewed fruit forward with some mild apple pie type notes. Very caramelised stuff with hints of spice and blueberry. Odd. Marmalade like finish, jammy currants come to mind. Ok
