Yellow to lightbrown, cloudy. Nice creamy foam, carbon visible in the glass. Strong banana aroma. Thick body with low carbon. Taste is banana, a little metal taste that comes more clear in the end. A light taste of alcohol comes with it. Bitterness that lasts

MrHangover (3864) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, banana, some wheaty notes. Flavor is quite bitter compared to other wheat beers. Some subtle light fruity wheat notes in the background. Full bodied, medium carbonated and short medium sweet aftertaste. Decent.

At a tasting, many thanks Werckmeister, small stable creamy head, cloudy orange color, aroma of ripe banana, wheat , vanila and a hint of yeast, flavor of banana, almonds strawberry and wood. light bitterness, not too heavy and nicely balanced. Very good and satisfying, like an amplified weizen.

Bottle acquired in trade with Werckmeister, many thanks! Pours clear golden with huge white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, yeast and wheat. Taste is quite sweet with banana, wheat and yeast. A little fizzy carbonation. Sweetish, doughy finish.

SinH4 (2447) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle from a trade with Werckmeister, many thanks! Hazy glowing orange color with fluffy white head. Aroma is ripe bananas, fruity esters, some spiciness, some bubble gum. Taste is more ripe bananas, bubble gum, warming phenolic esters, and a nice balancing tartness in the finish. Silky mouthfeel. Not the best, but a very good Weizenbock!

minutemat (4040) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
500ml bottle from Werckmeister I think. Drunk at home. Pours hazy gold, large white head. Aroma is fluffy yeasty weiss. Taste is pillowy smooth & creamy, lightly sweet, with good weiss yeast flavours. Very enjoyable.

Erzengel (7419) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
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!

Cristobal37 (739) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 15, 2015
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!
