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.

Bottle. Dark copper hue with mild haze and a fluffy tan head. Aroma is fruity: banana, pear, orange juice, brandy, cocoa, a little ethanol. Really nice. The flavor isnít as well-put-together, kicking off with booze before raisin, bread crust, banana and pear swoop in. Disjointed at first, but comes together at the finish. Medium body; mild massaging CO2; noticeable warmth. Tasty.

I love their accurate version of the style. A bit bolder than traditional but not much.
Bready aromas with subtle malty nuttiness and fruitcake and a head that lingers nicely leaving intense lacing along the sides as you quaff this tasty beverage.

Bottle from Liquor Outlet. Hazy deep amber/maroon in color. Lightly sweet yeasty nose with a good amount of dark fruit. Fairly dry up front with some underlying sweetness and dark fruit. Fairly spicy yeasty flavors with a touch of hops. Pretty dry and moderately sweet for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally rated on 9/26/14. "Pours a murky orange amberish body with a foamy tan head that settles to a thin film on top of the beer. Ringed lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, bread, booze, caramel, banana, earth, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, banana, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer, heavy wheat beer with some belgian and almost barleywine like attributes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was skeptical about uploading review based on that this wasnít fresh. Still, weíll call this one an aged review.
This was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving less than slim messy lacing.
The smell had a sweet dark fruits to gentle spice rolling into each other nicely.
Light sweet bready notes balance nicely.
The taste wraps together the spice with the breadiness, sweet yet gentle clove. Thereís no aftertaste but it does have a slight gentle sticky sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation seemed okay for the style but may have died a bit too since itís an old bottle.
Overall, for a weizenbock that came out last Autumn, I liked it now. Iím hoping to see it this coming Autumn as Iím sure it will be nice to sip on my deck overlooking a West setting Autumn sun.
