3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: murky, nearly opaque brownish color, more visible at foot’s bottom, with a largely, puffy light tannish head.
Aroma: soft& creamy, some rustic tinges, a hint of earthiness and spices, whiffs of fruit, subtle, sophisticated.
Taste: full greeting on the tongue and lips, a solid, malty presence. Large-bodied, not lacking a thing in texture, most mouth-filling.
Dazzling, tantalizing, tingly, nicely hopped, fresh flavor remains distinct throughout...nutty, spicy, slightly fruity, though that aspect is none-too pronounced.
After some underwhelmed encounters with their other weizens, I was happy to be more satisfied with this Erdinger brew. A very nice dunkel, and an even better weizenbock! Drinkability is quite good, as I thirsted for more, when the bottle was drained!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear dark brown with a towering tan head that collapses on the edges leaving a pile of dense foam int the middle. Sweet wheat caramel and alcohol aroma. The flavor is rather one-dimensional, caramel sweetness. Some alcohol towards the end. Where is the complexity that is the hallmark of this style? Body is medium with an alcohol bite at the end. Not so good.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 An excellent weizenbock that seems to fall off of my radar too much. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy dark brown-red color with a huge fluffy brown head. The aroma was sour malt and sweet fruit. The flavor was sour malt, a hint of fruit and a mild wheaty undertone. The sour malt and a hint of spice linger on the aftertaste. This really is a nice beer and already my top weizenbock. Pretty much everything I could ask for in this style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown and cloudy body with a thick foamy and lasting beige head. Malty nose, with smoked tones not especially strong. Tastes like burned caramel with some spicy bitterness at the end. Excessive carbonation. The beer is unbalanced between the subtility of the taste and the fizzyness of the body which waters it down finally. Could have been better !

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of sweet cherry dragged through molasses. Definitely sweet, but also quite earthy and even minerally. Caramel and bark, loads of bock-y sugars. Great feel in the mouth - veers close to too sticky, but thankfully doesn’t quite get there. Such an interesting beer style...

Bottled. Dark foggy brown served in its correct glass with a large frothy, speckled brown head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour was sweet and the palate dense.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very dark brown coloured beer with a nice white long lasting head. There is little aroma except an underlying musty roastiness. The taste is roasty, toasty and smoky and is enjoyable. Not a patch on Avenitus though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark red/brown with a tall tan head. Very sweet malty aroma with caramel and toffee. Taste starts very sweet with a nice malty smoothness, lots of caramel taste in the malt with a nice spice near the end. Cheap brew for 7.3 percent.
