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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a rich, dark brown color with little carbonation and a light brown head that doesn’t last for long. It smells of caramel and brown sugar and raisins and prunes. The flavor is caramel with dark chocolate, and some hot spices. It’s got a sticky but dry, warm finish. The ABV shows itself after being swallowed.
