Cloudy with yeast, with a very full taste, and typical weissbier notes. A harmonious weissbierbock, with a strong character. Available from late November.

Many thanks to Werckmeister for this bottle! Yeasty clove beginning. Intense and deep. Nice ripe fruity banana, no bitterness. The beer is soft and smooth with not too much sweetness. Round and easy to drink. The ripe banana with hints of clove is long in the aftertaste. Round and great!

Kavu (3475) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2015
0,5l bottle in a trade from Werckmeister. Pours cloudy orange with a high head. Aroma is malts, wheat, banana and yeast. Flavor is malts, wheat, yeast, alcohol and some hops. Not bad.

Bottle. Definitely taste "the strength" packaged under spices and wheat. Bright yellow with lots of frothy head. Sweet bubblegum, banana, and very whetting. It’s clear that this is not your average weisse beer, but the difference is nevertheless subtle. A great weisse beer, with that slight hint at being boozier than average. Perhaps not as good as Vitus, but a weizen bock well worth trying!

Pours a hazy orangey color, topped with a fairly small white head. Fruity aroma (banana) with some malty and bready notes. Taste is similar - sweet with some fruity feel and mild bitterness in the finish.

Saeglopur (1435) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Orange, cloudy body, with a big, frothy, white head, that dissipates quickly. Aroma of banana milk, orange, grains, clove and other spices. Taste with the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and it finishes spicy ans fruity. Nice one, but overall nothing special. Apart from the strength, not really different to a Hefeweizen. Still one of the best Weizenbocks from Austria.

Leicht hefiger Antrunk, angenehme Herbe. Würzig, nur leicht bananig, was durchaus angenehm ist. Spritzig, kaum wie ein Weizenbock wirkend, stimmig. 9/10/10/10//10
