Weizen bock. The strongest versions of the wizened beers, this complex, malty libation packs a very noticeable banana and cloves character with a side order of bubblegum. It will have you singing holiday joy in no time.

Pour on tap at the brewery, 10% weizrnbock? Hazy red pour with white head, aroma is vinegar, sour fruit, some earth, lemon, touch of caramel and biscuit, think it would be called a sour. Taste is sour fruits, garbage, trash into some sweet caramel, finishing bitter, sour. Yikes.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2013
At Avery Beer Fest 2013--murky dark copper with a thin white head. Very yeasty aroma with loads of heavy bready tones, and a honey-like sweetness. Flavor is malty sweet with bready yeast tones, some caramel, and something slightly earthy on a semi sweet lingering finish.

swanmann (590) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 20, 2013
It pours slightly hazy iced tea color from the bottle, with fluffy gradually dissipating tan head. Nice sweet aroma, banana, caramel, toffee, some booze, spicy notes, and dark fruits. The flavor is sweeet, dark fruits with light tartness in the finish, some fairly syrupy caramel, but the carb is adequate to pull it off. Light roastyness and just a touch of warmth round out this dark weizen.

Hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma dominated by clove, with some honey seeping in as well. Muted wheat character gives way to banana flavours. A distinct finish of banana bread.

yngwie (13211) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A murky orange-brown beer with some off-white bubbles as a head. Phenolic nose with alcohol, banana and caramel maltyness. The flavor is malty and phenolic, with lots of banana, and some faint lemony hints. Rather sweetish. Full body, almost sticky, with a nice carbonation. Not a very nice weizen bock this one. 130216
