Bottle. Flavour of fresh apple and pear juice, giving way to grainy notes and finishing soft yet with a warming effect. Very good.

Zlotta (575) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Craft Beer Schneider’s Longerich, best before 30/12/2016. Hazy, luscious orange with a thin, soapy, slowly diminishing, white head. Fruity aroma of mango, grapefruit, honeydew, vanilla, some booze and minimal hints of banana. Sweetish-fruity aroma of mango, orange, honeydew and vanilla, followed by a medium bitter, slightly cheap-boozy, grapefruity finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Rather disappointing if you await another gem like Schneider’s Hopfenweisse. Quite boozy and therefore a bit unround, also not that convincing regarding taste and aroma. Lacks body as well while head and carbonation are remarkably thin/low. Bummer!

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with floaties. Aroma of unfermented sugars, floral hops, a hint of citrus, somewhat chemical and yeasty. Flavor is quite bitter, slightly harsh and a bit messy.

Hermod (4965) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2014
33cl bottle @home. Bbe 30.12.2015. Pours murky orange, thin white head. Yeast, ripe banana, esters in aroma, some weak hoppier notes as well. Flavor has banana, yeast, mineralnotes and slight fruit hoppyness. Long sweet, slightly warming finish. Dangerously easy to drink, hides abv well. Really tasty.

Cunningham (6054) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014
A fine cloudy golden color with an ok white head. Some lacing. Fruity, wheat, banana and some alcohol in the nose. A fine full body. A bit to sweet. But that is quite normal for this style. The best ones are really lovely balanced. Malty, fruity, wheat, some yeast and mild banana in the flavor. A very complex brew but absolutely unbalanced. It is just a mix of everything and no balance. Too sweet and to much alcohol coming up is the main problem.

Endlich mal ein Weizenbock. Don Impala ist schon vom Flaschendesign ein Genuß. Man merkt sehr schnell nach Ausschank dies ist ein Bier für Fortgeschrittene. Ich als Amateur muß hier ganz besonders langsam voranreiten. Dieses bräunliche Bier hat wenig Kohlensäure , dafür strömt Süsse in die Luft und Schaumkrone ist vergleichbar mit den Schaum einer Welle im Meer bei sehr sehr leichtem Wellengang. Der Antrunk ist wie ein Softdrink- Das soll Bier sein? Süsse vermischt mit einer hintergründigen Schwere (Alkohol). Bleib stark, erforsche hintergründig dieses Bier. Noch in Schockstarre vom Einstieg, lässt mich auch der Körper kalt, der Abgang erinnert mich noch daran das ich viellecht im Geruch den Weizen gerochen habe, im Abgang kommt hierzu noch ein Geschmacksecho. Ich gebe es zu, mir fehlt die höhere Kunst der Böcke, ich lerne einfach noch diese Weine...er... Biere zu wertschätzen. Don Impala ist ein Zugang. Beim 2. 3. 4. Schluck kommen weitere Geschmacksnoten zum Vorschein lange nachdem mein Wertungsuteil schon in Stein graviert wurde. Fazit: Mein Lieblings Weizenbock aber das sagt leider nix aus.

Bottled (thanks McTapps!). Hazy orange colour, mediumsized, slightly off-white head. Aroma is alcohol, wheat, some yeast and mild bready notes. Flavour is wheat, alcohol, some sweetness, mild spices and yeast. Unbalanced, and too few other flavours giving it something for balance makes this one a rather dull brew.
