3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL swing top pours with a deep clear mahogany body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet fruitiness in the form of dates and prunes and brown sugar coated figs with a thin ribbon of caramel rimming the aromatic experience. The taste is similar and is smooth on the palate with sweet ripe red apple that are lightly coated with brown sugar. It then heads into sweet notes of dates, figs and prunes. To midway some sweet caramel surfaces along with a malty note or two. This is smooth stuff with a well hidden ABV.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from a local grocery store. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that soon recedes to a ring. The aroma is strong with banana, sweet malts and cloves. The flavor mirrors the aroma, lots of wheat flavors, banana, cloves and sweet malts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and a bit numbing. Overall: a decent Weizenbock.
