3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky brown with a solid beige/light brown head.
aoma is malt, cooked bannana and not much else.
Metalic quality in the flavor. There was a little clove, bannana, caramel, but I couldn’t get past the tinfoil-on-the-fillings taste... weird.
The freshness date on the bottle was 01/05 so I don’t think it was old.. I will try again another time and re-rate

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
While I don’y always enjoy such a hefty, malty flavor - I was really ready for this and thus it was enjoyed thouroughly. My son even asked for a second sip (which is rare as I usually am drinking excessively hopped beers). Much more tame in the flavour spectrum than Aventinus. Not exactly lighter, though suppose in ABV it is slightly. I catch much more of the bock than the weiss flavors, but if I can get another for the price I paid for this it’ll get many more chances to cement the opinion.

½ liter bottle. Deep brown, murky opaque. Everlasting rocky head. Not much in the nose but compensated by overwhelming taste of fruit, chocolate and malt. Big mouthfeel with heavy carbonation. Propably the best WeizenBock around and by far the best product from the Erdinger brewery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bland bland bland. Hazy yellow in colour with a thin quickly discipating head. The nose is soft of yeast and malts. The taste is just about the same with an underlying taste of water. Farily easy to drink, but the wheat and yeast is jus terriblely difficutl to enjoy.

Another mediocre wheat. Deep brown with miniscule tan head. Malt and caramel nose. Medium body. Flavor was unexceptional. More "lawnmower beer."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Aroma is malty, sweet, caramel, spicey, and slight alcohol. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a big tan head with okay retention. Virtually no lacing. Flavor is very malty with a very strong caramel taste. Alcohol is covered up rather well. Not much aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clowded deep brown color with a significant creamy head. Aroma smells like roasted malt with a wheat back, reminds me of pasta for some reason. Flavor is a pleasing maltyness blended with bananna. Palate is crisp, but not harsh enough to intrude over the flavor.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma with dark brown clear colour with no lacing. Short heavy malt flavour with fizzy flat palate.

Bottle: Copper colour pours a heavy and foamy head. Sweet, caramel and fruity aroma and taste, slightly bitter. Acohol is very well hidden, overall great balance. Erdingers are some of my favourite beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper hue with nice creamy off-white head and excellent lace. The aroma hints of fruits, spice, caramel, floral hops, and a earthy yeast ester. The taste is very much a hybrid, some bock character (sweet malts and a touch of alcohol) with the banana, lemon and clove of the hefeweizen. The finish is a bit shorter than I would want but okay. The monuthfeel is strangely soft and a bit chewy. Overall a good brew but middle of the road for the genre. Worthy of a bottle.
