Vaiz (3553) - 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 (3449) - 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 (4887) - 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.
[Bottle from a trade with McTapps]

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.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2014
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.

mmahut (1100) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours in dark amber body, hazy, with medium frosty white head. Aroma is fruity, light tropical, yeasty, bubble gum with noble hops on the nose. Taste has high malty sweetness, light fruity touch, low to medium earthy bitterness. Pretty on the sweet side with almost none of the tropical notes that are found in the aroma. Body is full, medium carbonation.

Geiserich (3465) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle: Aroma is very aromatic, fruity, tropical fruits, peach, banana. Flavor is also very fruity and spicy, light caramel, tropical fruits, peaches and banana notes, sharp alcohol notes. Bitter and alcoholic finish. Tasty but unharmonic.

mile (3118) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Body is medium to full, malty – wheaty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, light banana and alcohol, light yeast. Body is medium, malty – some wheat and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and banana, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty – some wheat and lightly sweetish, faint banana and light hoppyness, light alcohol. OK weizenbock with light hoppyness. Not too sweet - bit too much alcohol in the finish considering the body.
