2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 Pours like coke or pepsi carbonated with the head disapating quickly. Smells like overpowering hops and alcohol. When I poped this 500 ml bottle the head overflowed making me sip the foam from the bottle to prevent overflow. Foam was very bitter by the way. Sour palate from my experince, but Wiezen Bocks are not my speciality. Interesting beer liked it as something new, but very sour palate maybe I got a bad bottle

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very deep brown with long lasting head. Typical but soft bock aroma. Flavor is fruity-sweet but maintains a strong balancing hop presence as well (looking now at the commercial description they are quite accurate); finish is raisiny but also slightly metallic. Airy, carbonated palate with a slightly harsh alcohol presence. In the end though, this beer is quite a bargain at $2.49 for a 25 oz bottle -- it earn 2 extra Overall points for economy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2005 I’ll avoid saying anything inflammatory so I don’t appear racist or anything. It was a good thing I was sitting on a beach in Venice, CA when drinking this, because I’m assuming it’s German for "crap". Lots of head, or, more accurately, foam. Just a lot of bitterness, but without any hops for accompaniment. Overall, something to avoid.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a dark brown malty thing with a nice burnt note in the back of the palate. It has a slightly sweet taste that is balanced well by the bitterness. The flavours are heavy without being overpowering, and the alcohol is wellhidden. A good and drinkable companion!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark leather brown beer in a dimpled mug while keeping a stubborn foam above it. Aroma has traces of malt,chocolate,caramel and perhaps apple or another fruit of some sort. The same is to be said about the flavor: strong malt backbone with hint of chocolate and caramel and also including a wood like taste. Fruit of pear or red apple and a split reminder or raisin too. By far the best weizen bock i’ve drank to date.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The color is that of swamp water with the sediments from the bottom kicked up. The head is large and noisy, but fades quickly and ultimately ends up completely dissipated. This aroma carries overripe bananas and chocolate. The flavor seems to be pretending to be a true weizenbock, but really lacks the complexity and character to compete with most of the others that I’ve had.
