3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of creamy banana, orange, citrus, grains, clove. Taste is very smooth, with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is full, creamy, with a lively carbonation and it finishes fruity, spicy and slightly alcohol warming. Tasty! Really smooth and greatly balanced, with the typical Hefeweizen aromas and the creaminess I expect from a Weizenbock. It doesn’t approach my favourite Weizen single bock from Ayinger too close, but still a great one!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
What a fine cloudy dark golden pour! Also a nice white head that gives a good lacing down the glass. Typical hefe weisse aroma. Wheat, banana and some yeast. Also some mild spiced notes and a bit malty. Solid body and a fine balanced sweetness. A bit oily texture. I can not find something wrong with the flavor. Lovely smooth balance. Wheat, a bit fruity, banana, yeast and some spice note in a fine well blended mixture! Germany – Brazil 7-1 WC semi final 2014. Beer won all over. Outstanding Weizenbock! Highly recommendable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle at home, many thanks to McTapps! Into a big tulip, ABV 7.2%
Dark orange colour on the body but still transparent enough to see the tiny bubbles rising to the surface in it. Two full fingers if white head, with good density and great retention too, leaving traces of lacing on the glass.
Aroma of wheat, yeast, bananas, a bit spicy.
Taste matches the aroma with bananas, some clove, yeast, a bit of apricot and fruity bubblegum on the finish.
Medium body, smooth and kind if creamy too, with good carbonation. Mildly dry palate.
Nice surprise this one, as I didn’t expect it to have that depth on the flavour and the mouthfeel was also a big plus.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap in Nuremberg, Germany. Hazy orange, thick white head. Smells of citrus and heavy yeast. Taste has banana and other typical weiss notes, but has added complexity and higher sweetness and alcohol taste. Almost drinks like a combo Belgian and German beer...which is like a combo Scarlett Johansson and Candice Swanepoel. Excellent and will be a lasting memory of drinking in Germany.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
5000ml bottle: my 5th and final bottle during my 1st visit to Weiss-Blau in Charlottenburg Berlin on 17th Jan 2014: I was to re-visit some 5 days later to drink more brews.
Not had many Weizenbock beers so style isn’t an issue here, although both an Aventinus and a Vitus have crossed my path more than once.
Pours a deep golden orange colour, not as hazy/cloudy as I expected, full head of deep foam.
Sweet malts, yeast and spices vie with each other in both the nose and the taste, this is complex, interesting and different. Vanilla and banana flavours are also in the mix; this is like a malty sweet normal Weizen with knobs on.
I liked it and will be seeking out more beers in the style to try.
