   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Bulk_Carrier (2275) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a copper/brown colored body and is slightly transparent with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dies within a minute. Speckled spider web lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell starts out chalky, but eventually fades and lets the true aspects of the beer come out - malty, slightly nutty, and earthy. The taste is sweet nutty/maltiness (the chalkiness does come out initially in the taste, but eventually goes away) and slightly grainy. The aftertaste has a sharp malty aftertaste and a dry malty finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium, and comes across slightly sessionable. Carbonation is kinda smooth and good for the style and for me. Overall, for the most part, I say this is a good weizenbock, but to be honest, I havenít had too many of these, however, Iím willing to come back to this, also, it kinda reminds me of a Brown Ale.

poisoneddwarf (1767) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bomber into my Aventinus glass, bought at Fred Meyer in CDA, ID. Aroma is chalky candy, very light banana, dough, minerals; not the clove and banana explosion I expect from one of my favorite styles! Pours clear copper with a collapsing medium off-white head. Taste is weirdly tart with a lingering bitter finish. Light flavor of earth, biscuit. Tastes nothing like a weizenbock. WTF is this? Tastes like an American Amber ale. Creamy mouthfeel, finely carbonated. Not bad tasting, just not to style one little bit. What the hell?

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. Clear reddish amber body with a small fizzy beige head. The nose is earthy and wheaty with a slight toasted note. Minimal yeast influence. The flavor is pretty light on the yeast influence as well, still plenty of earthiness from the dark wheat though. Finishes with a slight sweetness and some toasted notes. Medium bodied with firm fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent, but a little lacking in depth. There is a bit of an alcohol kick to this one for sure though, despite it being just around 7%.

Bottle. Clear amber with small head. Sweet malty aroma. Caramelly flavor with the bock half missing the wheat and some body.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours amber with a sticky off white head. Nose is malts, bready, caramels, light spice, light fruits. Flavor is bready, malty, sweet breads, toffee and full on bock and/or oktoberfest character. Lacking weizen character

BrewDad (5040) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Golden in color light haze night head. Super aroma and nice flavors. Good wheat like flavor with a good dark flavor finish. Nice spices this was a good Oktoberfest like beer.

Drake (9001) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a thin frothy off-white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of raisin, toffee, earth, wheat, dark malts. The taste is raisin, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, chocolate, wheat, tinny hops. Thin-medium bodied. Okay.

stevoj (2338) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Very malty aroma, clear amber in color with small silky head. This is one of my favorite German styles, but I find the American varieties lacking. This is decent but doesnít have the alcohol kick or smooth flavor of Bavaria.
