4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I think this beer is very underated because I was much more impressed then I thought I would be. Poured dark brown with a white and creamy head. The aroma was very nice with coffee, malt, dark fruits, pepper, banana and a bit of pinapple as well. The flavor added some wine to it as well. The mouthfeel had this warm wine sensation to it which was really pleasant especially for the Winter season. Quite an impressive session beer for the winter season. It is not the Schneider Aventinus, but it is still a very fine Weizenbock. None of it is overdone.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is initially quite sweet and chocolatey...this fades into a more vinous pineapple/banana aroma. Reminiscent of the Unibroue yeast aroma’s. A slight smokiness also comes through. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a big light tan head that has lots of small bubbles. Carbonated, sweet sugary flavors to start. Turns malty and slightly roasted. Thin, metallic finish with hints of roasted coffee coming through very very late. The finish of this beer leaves a poor impression. This is quite drinkable, but I wish it had a little more ooomph in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very deep red colour, with a rapidly dwindling beige head. Powerful fruity malt aroma. Lots of chocolate malt in evidence, but very little obvious wheat character. Sweet malt flavour with chocolate, caramel, molasses and plummy fruit. Slightly medicinal. Again, not much wheat. Rich and heavy body. Quite sweet and syrupy, which detracts from the appeal a little. I see that some luminaries haven’t rated this beer highly, but I must admit I rather liked it. Granted I’m not a connoisseur of the style but it seemed to hits the spot for me. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice appearance, with a brown color that has a hint of red to it and a huge foamy head that retains very well. Nice banana-fruity smell. Flavor is big on malts, with some "dark fruitiness" present, and some alcohol flavor is detectable too. Pretty good Weizenbock from Erdinger.

Bottle purchased at the Bier Garden in Portsmouth, VA on 1-8-05. Dark brown body with splashes of ruby. Medium foamy tan head. Nose is malty with light chocolate notes and fruit. Taste is very malty and fruity with light sugary notes and candy. Light bubblegum notes as well. Body is medium and very carbonated but has some creamy notes. Finishes with light chocolate, more fruit, and bubblegum. Nice beer!

Deep brown cloudy in color. pours with a huge head that does dissolve after a bit. Aroma is sweet but yet light malt smells. Upon drinking it is full bodied with a bitter aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice malty brew with some hints of raisens, plums, wheat, malt and light grass. The alcohol is in there, as you can tell as it warms up. Pretty damn good. Pours with a huge head that bubbeled out to total flatness.
