COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruddy orange in color, this unfiltered wheat beer enjoys a spicy aroma that hints at raisin, clove, banana, and bubblegum. Full bodied yet very easy drinking with a toasted caramel malt finish.

On draught at Fat Head’s Portland. Cloudy brown hue. Aroma and taste are both malty, with a great brown banana and caramel notes. Favorite beer of my flight. Welcome to PDX!

Sarlacc83 (901) - Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at the Portland location. A: Stirred up mud brown, off-white head, some lacing. N: Banana, clove, rain, bubble gum, those little valentine’s hearts that always remind me of pepto-bismol, peppercorn. 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?

JStax (3172) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Draft at the Pittsburgh location. Pours a hazed brown with a beige head of thin foam. The aroma had notes of dark fruits, some esters, banana, wheaty bread. Taste is on the sweet side with a nice wheaty body. Thicker mouthfeel. Almost chewy. Lower carbonation. Really good weizenbock.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Murky brownish-orange color with a medium foamy light beige head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and bananas. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, banana and sweet spices. The finish is malty with a clove and ginger aftertaste. Above average overall.

brokensail (11300) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Dark copper pour with a khaki head. Toast, bread, and caramel malts. Some toffee, spicy clove, a bit of banana, and some cola. Fruity raisin and apple notes, too. Flavor is nice and sweet. Big toffee, caramel, and toast. Cola sweetness, some banana, pear, raisin, and a touch of cotton candy. Good clove spiciness, too.

merc7186 (2207) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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.
