Phone rate. Draught at brewpub. Finally get to rate this after a few years of wanting it. Cloudy auburn brown with a one finger light beige, fading to a thin ring after a minute or two. Toasty malts and molasses dominate, the yeasty banana is actually lurking behind with a bit of brown sugar. Banana is a little stronger in the flavor, alcohol is present. Still toasty, has less molasses. A little sweet for my taste, low bitterness. Low carbonation with a big thick body. Not bad, but I feel (at least this batch) is a little overrated by the style.

flatmatt (1021) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2011
12 oz bottle. Best by 11/28/09 (oops). This pours orange amber with an off-white head and lots of fine suspended particles. Sweet candy aroma, caramelly and fruity: I’m actually reminded a bit of my couple experiences with sake due to the candy perception. Flavor is again quite candy-like, caramel, apple, clove. I can tell it’s been in the bottle for a while, and it seems like it’s probably thinned out some, but the flavor is still quite nice. Would definitely like to try a fresher bottle.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2011
Bottled@Monks Café, Stockholm. Hazy deep orange colour, mediumsized big slightly off-white foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet toffee, wheat, mild spices as well as banana and some mild yeastyness. Flavour is rather similar along with some alcoholic sweetness. Mild nuttyness as well.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Pours a hazy amber with a lasting, white head. Smells of bubblegum, clove, bananas, coriander. Tastes sweet and spicy with some clove and bananas on the finish.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2011
t pours a medium amber with not much of a head and what is there is gone quickly. The lacing is very watery as is the beer, nothing special. The aroma is light banana with wheat. The taste is light and sweet with a hint of hops, nothing special to keep you having more than one but it is drinkable. Mouthfeel is light.

12-oz bottle Wineworks, Springfield, OH - aroma:bread, clove, raisins, vanilla, banana; appearance: clear with sediment, amber color, no head or laces; Flavor: sweet, salty, spicy, malty; Mouthfeel: medium-full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation: Overall: a nice strong, fruity, spicy, and malty wheat beer. Unfortunately, the bottle was a little old and the sediment didn’t mix into the beer very well but very clumpy.

Whoaa! Time is lost!! Break out the Glockenspiel....for no apparent reason......get it OUT! The in-laws are waiting! Let them drink this. Save the Blatz for yourself. You’ll thank me in the morning.

Weizen Bock has quickly grown on me as a style. The intense flavor and the awesome aroma really hits home. Of the ones I have tried Glockenspiel is one of my favorites. The beer pours a beautiful darkish red/brown. Right away the aromas of clove are noticeable. The beer drinks quite easy for 8% (always scared when I say that).
