A: Stirred up mud brown, off-white head, some lacing.

T: Very sweet, somewhat spicy.
M: Light body, dense carbonation.
O: Fruity concoction which has an artificial candy quality that I do not enjoy. First batch blues?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a nice reddish hazy color to it with a great reddish white head and good lacing on the glass. The beer has a mildly sweet smell of raisins and banana with some clove coming through later. The taste is upfront with the raisin flavor and malt, then followed by banana and clove. The mouthfeel is somewhat dry and sweet that lingers for a while. Overall, a decent weizenbock that has some sweet qualities about it.
