This is a beer. One of the better ones that I have had to date. I really liked this one.

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.

Grzesiek79 (3174) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Znakomite piwo. Przede wszystkim największe wrażenie robi wygląd. Wielka szklanica typu weizen wspaniale się prezentuje po przelaniu tego super mocno mętnego piwa. Z ciemnego pomarańczowego koloru po wypłukaniu drożdzy i przelaniu kolor tak się mętni że jasno brązowy sięrobi i nie przepuszcza to światła. Taki osad. Piana z początku mało się tworzy, ale później jest spora i utrzymuje się do końca degustacji. W smaku zbożowo-słodowe. Sporo pszenicznych akcentów, trochę maślane, alkohol ukryty. Finisz rozgrzewający i alkohol trochę uderza do głowy. Bardzo pijalne jest to piwo.

Aranyló narancs szín. Törtfehér, vaskos hab. Édes illat trópusi gyümölccsel és érett banánnal. Íze kellemes édességgel indul, lágy citrusos hullám után hosszan elnyúló, közepesen intenzív komlóval zár. Az illatot az ízében is követik a gyümölcsök, kevés mézzel füszerezve. A magas alkohol jól el van bújtatva. Izgalmas sör, újra és újra kóstolásra csábít. Egy üveg nem biztos, hogy elég belőle.

TAR (2446) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle with a best by date of 4/12/12 (presumably bottled in October, but super fresh, regardless). Cloudy amber. Fat, lathery dollop of foam cakes the glass with ornate lace. Saliva-inducing scents of Hallertauer nectar, vanilla bean, banana cream pie, puddinglike yeast and pineapple jump through the foam in this heavenly aroma. Distant crackle of cookie malt tickles the nostrils along with the obligatory, though pleasingly restrained, bubblegum and clove. Soothing mousselike carbonation. Spicy plasticlike and clove phenolics seamlessly meld with fluffy wheat backed with a firmer dusting of piecrust and cookielike malt. Vibrant banana cream pie character is laced with pineapple and a vanilla purity which bears an uncanny resemblance to cake frosting. Meanwhile, the Hallertauer persists with a remarkably refined mouthwatering lusciousness which perfectly matches that of the malt which boasts an all-enveloping depth of softness. Unparalleled balance and finesse on display here. And at 7.2% abv, there is nary a trace of alcohol. Dainty scratch of clean hops echoes the well-composed clove zip. Resoundingly estery and phenolic, though the byproducts are seemingly undetectable due to the astounding cohesiveness. Sweet bubblegum-laced powdered sugar sweeps the tongue, complementing the palate-hugging wheat starches. Splash of seemingly-open-fermentation tartness dazzles the palate along with faint spiced-apple delicacy and an ongoing medley of tropical fruit luster. Hop spice gently exudes in the finish, though the hops remain predominantly nectar-laden possessing a hugely appetizing vibrancy which exquisitely harmonizes with the beefy, wheat-induced slickness. This is downright stupendous and awe-inspiring, and such an impressive feat for the brewer to have coaxed every imaginable nuance from the yeast. Had two bottles in successive days and was enamored more the second day, if that’s possible. Yow!

Ernest (6181) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Rated at Hutt’n in Nov 2011. Head is fully lasting. Body is cloudy dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, pineapple, gum, taffy. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A true gem of a beer, and so fitting to be my last beer of the trip. One of the richest and most delicious Weizenbocks I’ve ever had.

Erzengel (2531) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Sehr schöne trüb-orangene Farbe im Glas. Der Geruch ist umwerfend bananig und mild-hefig. Im Antrunk ist das Bier sehr mild-süßlich und angenehm bananig. Zum Hauptteil kommen die bananig-süßlichen Aromen noch stärker hervor und harmonieren wunderbar mit der mildern Hefenote. Auch eine leichte Herbe ist mit von der Partie! Der Nachgeschmack ist für meinen Geschmack schon fast ein Bisschen zu süß-bananig (hat schon was von süßer Bananenmilch), aber absolut genial. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine Note von überreifer, leicht vergorener Banane zusammen mit einer leichten, aber ideal ins Bild passenden Herbe.
--> Ein absolut genialer Weizenbock!
Test vom 22.2.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,14,12,14,12,14 - 13,60

Cunningham (4426) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
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.
[Bottle from a trade with McTapps. Hughe thanxxx Sabine!]

This is an awesome Weizenbock, has a wonderful aroma of frech buttered banana bread. Pours fairly light, but with a decent head. Incredibly full bodied and all around tasty weizen. It was really like a banana milkshake with a touch of alcohol. awesome beer, will definitely be buying a box.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2011
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 bottle at Hutt’n in Nurnberg. incredibly juicy and fluffy banana cream, lemon and wheat nose, satisfyingly soft and juicy without coming across as over-estery and sweet. rich, multi-layered cake-fluff wheat and malt with an explosion of soft creamy carbonation. mild prickliness and pepperiness lingering late. one of the the great weizen bocks of Germany.
