3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours to a deep brown color in the glass with a lasting off-white head. Has a very faint sweet aroma that belies a rich malty blend of chocolate/caramel and dark fruit flavors. The alcohol is perceptible, but doesn’t overpower the finish. A bit of wheat tartness complements the light bitter finish very well. A good, if slightly understated, bock.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured out a brown with a reddish highlights and a tall growing beige foam head. The head recedes fairly quickly to a cap of bubbles and doesn’t leave any lace stuck to the glass only a trail of head after each sip. Fruity sweet malt is the strongest smell in the aroma. Fruity malts hit the palette first with a nice sweetness that is not over done. Caramel flavors are also quite apparent, as is a dry spicy finish. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. I could definitely put a few of these away they are tasty with a fairly complex taste and its not too heavy on you. This is a pretty good example of the style that I would gladly have again.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 Quite amazing beer, i’m not a big fan of wheat beers in general but this one is something else... It’s very full flavored, very rich, full bodied, yeasty, bitter-sweet, loads of dried dark fruits in the flavor, some faint roasty-choclatey notes. Can’t wait to drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky dark brown, luscious head. Slightly sour bready aroma. Not too sweet, to my pleasant surprise, as this is a quality that in general turns me away from trying this style. Slight sour flavor that fades as it warms. In the end, there is in fact a light milk chocolate flavor. Better than I was expecting.

bottle. deep chocolate brown which poured a very nice head. nicely balanced malty flavor with nodes of bread and yeast. not as carbonated as Aventinus, which suits me just fine. One of my favorite Weizenbocks.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
not a huge W-bock, but tasty. looks like a vienna roast coffee with a bit of pale ochre-yellow dijon mustard stirred in. i spied a bit of yeast chunk in the bottle that i was looking forward to chewing on, but like a mirage it dissolved as i got closer to the bottom. the head fluffed like a coifed poodle, but for just a minute. i looked away for a second to take a few notes, looked back, and it was gone. kinda suspicious, really. i almost suspected foul play. strong bready malt aroma, coffee and plum spread on a schwarzwald rye loaf; plus pencil shavings, whipped cream with a squeeze of orange juice, american cigarette tobacco. flavor is sweet, with jazzy carbonation. alas, it’s a bit thin; the alcohol has a nice cameo, but the feel remains watery. with it’s cream soda sweetness, it’s mild tinture of rootbeer earthiness, it’s minimal bitterness-- it would go well with a festive meal, but enjoyed alone, it comes across as pleasant, but rather sedate company.
