3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL flip-top thanks to argo0. Pours a clearer deep cola ruby. Medium beige to yellow foam. Dunkelweizen nose, chocolate covered banana dessert, estery, mild plastic, a bit doggy. Taste is papery, alcoholic, abrasive, dry. Mild chocolate banana, mint, paper. Fiancee said it tasted old and stale. Palate has some acid, sugar, maple, decent density. Not too bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer is light copper with a small head. The aroma brings banana, malt, booze, fruity esters. The flavor is a tad harsh, with bananas soaked in alcohol. This is ok. Best in small doses.

Stewed apple aroma with banana accents. Clear maroon, thin yellow head. Clove and stewed apple flavor. Medium body, spritzy. Apple skin finish. I’m not crazy about this one, but an honest effort from GB, and one of the few weizen eisbocks available.

On tap at Tap 25. It pours a dark amber color with a khaki head. The aroma is intense with banana, clove, bubble gum. Very sweet on all notes. The flavor is sweet caramel, bread, banana, clove and juicy fruit gum. Super thick body that borders on cloying. Nice spicy yeast character in the finish. I enjoyed this ones intensity of German yeast flavors, but only in small samples.
