Murky. This beer smells like my toilet right after I've shit. And that is NOT something pleasant. This beer tastes of rotten stuff and old horse barn. I hate it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 A dark brew with a pleasant head, but a rather slight aroma. The flavour is gentle on the front of the palate, but the alcohol taste hits you at the back of the throat. This is quite sweet, but not overpowering. (originally rated on 15th April 2003 - 2.6).
Re-rate: smooth, beguiling darkness. A syruppy strength evenly distributed across the tongue. Balanced nicely, with a smidge of warmth and some sugar-coated leather. Don’t know what I was thinking when I first rated this 7 years ago - it’s nice. (new score 3.8)

Until I had the pleasure to taste Aventinus, I would rate this as one of the best Weizen Bock's out there. But compared the above mentioned it is lacking in complexity. But still is a good brew.

Pours a dark, cloudy brown color with a big, off-white, lingering head. The aroma is malty and slightly fruity with some yeast and sour notes. Full bodied with medium carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet with touches of banana and a spicy, yeasty finish. The alcohol is well hidden. Very smooth, this is quite a nice weizen bock with just the right amount of carbonation and sweet flavors.

Pours deep brown with off-white head that doesn't stick around for very long. Smells floral and spicy. Nice spices in the flavor that lead into some citrus and grass; and then malt, caramel and chocolate. Somewhat sour, malty finish.

Nice dark color with chocolate aroma, what a treat. Taste like ripe bananas and I love chocolate covered bananas.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown color. Large foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. This is the darkest, most opaque Weizen Bocks I’ve seen. Full bodied. Malty, slightly nutty. Chocolate and caramel malts. Seems a little less complex than most Weizen bocks. Not very spicy. Very smooth flavor. Alcohol bite is fairly noticeable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, with a noticeable alcohol finish. Not their best effort.

Brown with a hint of garnet color with a tall dense tan head. Malt and caramel nose. Malt flavors with decent hidden alcohol. Nothing complex, sweet malt and light hops.

chunkous murky brown. it seems that even a bad weizenbock isn't that bad. quite dry and low in flavour except for vague grain
