BigHoss (171) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2013

corby112 (2736) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a dark golden amber/copper color with mahogany edges and a two finger off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Slightly smokey, roasted malt aroma with peppery spice, earthy hops and bready yeast. More robust than whatís typical for the style. Hints of pepper and clove followed by banana, bread, chocolate, caramel and toffee but thereís also a burnt dark malt presence as well as a resinous hop presence. These extra elements are interesting but overpower what I like most about the style. Medium bodied with a flavor profile thatís very similar to the aroma. The roast character is toned down a bit but itís still slightly smokey and more dry/acrid than I expected. Hints of dark chocolate, oatmeal and dry, burnt toast followed by hints of peppery clove, banana bread, caramel and toffee. The ABV is well masked and its easy to drink, but I just wish thre was some more sweetness for balance. I appreciate the more robust, hoppier take on the style, but I prefer the more traditional take on the style.

AnokaBrewer (127) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2015
22 oz bottle poured an Amber hue with very little head. Not a lot of aroma. We felt it was more of a bock than a Weizen. No banana or clove from the wheat. OK beer, but they make a lot of better beers.

bottle. Brown with one finger head. Light sweetness and just a bit of banana and clove. A bit disappointing that this was so light on flavor.

weihenweizen (2497) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Refrigerated bottle, best by February 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear copper with half inch dense beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body medium carbonation, and pretty good big bubble lacing. Taste is big malty caramel malt, hints of yeast, some bread, and hints of vanilla in the finish. Not the typical combination of flavors, especially for a german variety, but not a bad beer, and I donít think the age of the beer made much difference.

islay (1712) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2014
22 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-8-14. Simple, tangy, musty aroma features scents of caramel and apple juice. Pours a clear amber with a small amount of beige head. Simple, tangy flavor features toffee and a touch of vanilla in the finish. Dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lively in the palate. Easy to drink. Pleasant but simple, unsophisticated, and forgettable overall. Boring beer for which I was unable to create extensive notes because it was so uninspiring.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3566) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya, shared at the Dig Bar American Craft Event. Slightly past date. Served in a tulip. A nice malty caramel somewhat yeasty aroma. The beer has a medium bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel. The taste is caramel, toffee, yeast, mild spices think some kind of spicy bready cake. Pretty good.

22 oz bottle poured an Amber hue with very little head. Mildly sweet aroma. Taste is bland. Hard to pick any discernable flavors. I am not liking this beer. It is smooth Iíll give it that. Not good though, overall.
