4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Weizen glass. The label has a nice description and a freshness date.
Appearance: Deep rich crimson highlights flow through a deep amber body with a slight haze. This is topped by a light beige colored and tightly packed head. The tall stiff foam hangs on well and makes lots of slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: There are deep sweet fruity and bready notes with notes of wheat, banana bread with walnuts and over-ripe banana peel.
Taste/Palate: The flavor matches the nose with a light dusting Dutch cocoa, fruity banana, dried apricots and a mild touch of hop spice. It also has a sweet and mellow abv warmth. The full body has a smooth creamy texture with plenty of soft carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle that is probably out of date but given to me kindly by Toby. Cloudy dark brown colour. Lasting beige head. Oxidised aroma. Some sweet malts, not a huge amount of German flavour on this. Esters are minimal. Sweet malt and oxidisation.

Bottle as shown. Pours a murky orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a fruity malt and spice. Light fruity malt with wheat and sweet finish. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good weizen bock, medium amber with thin head. Heavy malt masks the wheat backbone of this. Lacks the head of a real German weizen, but mouthfeel and overall body are pretty good. Medium weight winter warmer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aged 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Slow but full pour left sediment on the side and bottom of the bottle, with a good bit of suspended sediment in the pour. The body was orange-brown, hazy with a modest and mostly short-lived, bone-colored head. Fruity aroma with a hint of biscuits. Flavorful, with plenty of dark fruits and caramel plus hints of molasses, brown sugar, and spices.
Higher ABV evident but in a mostly attractive fashion, in both the aroma and the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of wheat and fruit with spices. Amber copper color, not as dark as I expected. Weighty mouthfeel and thicker than anticipated. The aroma and flavors were not as strong as I would have liked but well balanced. It definitely had the malty and bready character of a bock with a little something extra. Mild fruit and spice notes on the finish.
