(bottle - 1 L fliptop - 2009 vintage) Copper pour with a thin tan head. Sweet and malty aroma. Lots of spices mixed in with a very light hop bitterness. Flavor is a bit too sweet for me however. Lots of sweet malts and spice. The bitterness isnít really there and I couldíve used it.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2012 Pours a clear golden color. Aroma hits with yeast and banana and then apples. Flavor is a real rich malty vanilla flavor that gives way to the banana flavors. This is an excelllent beer . Clean finishing. Good carb and just a good solid drinking beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Bridge, from notes. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head that leaves some spots of lace in the glass. Aroma of wheat, mixed fruits, especially banana, peppery spices, sweet malts, and some grass. Flavor of tropical fruits, with banana again leading the way, wheat, mild spice, and sweet malts. Medium-bodied, with a malty, fruity mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2009 bottle pours cloudy dark orange with dense off white head. The smell is mild and mostly malty with a little hint of spice. The taste is different, more spice heavy, clove and cardamom, with a little fruitiness. The wheat makes for a good palate with the carbonation. As it warms the yeast that has aged gets stronger, with some funky banana and bubblegum to go with ASL the other flavors. It was ok over all, not as good as the 2 year sheep eater I had or the double vision doppelbock.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1L bottle. Poured clear medium orange with a moderate cap of beige head.. some sticky lacing. The aroma picked up warm bananas, caramel, chocolate, and molasses with vanilla and black peppery accents.. lots of sugars going on.. lots of wheat in there.. just a bit too malty. The flavor found sweet chocolate, overripe banana, and molasses at the core, with light wheaty sourness laced throughout.. more peppery, spicy, and warm on the back.. came together well. Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. a tad syrupy at times.. decent feel and flow. This was good, but not great.

The beer pours a hazy copper color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee and bananas, exactly what I expect from a weizenbock. The flavor is more of the same. The toffee and caramel malt is pretty strong with some wheat, banana and clove notes also mixed in. As the beer warms, it starts to taste quite a bit like bubblegum. Very interesting. The alcohol is present but is not overpowering. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
