COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Norwegian: Weizenbock er et øl med en svært kompleks, men likevel lett smak. Til å være et bokkøl har dette ølet i tillegg til sitt tydelige maltpreg også mye av hvetegjærens frukt og nelliksmak som kombinert gir en stor smaksopplevelse. Ølet tåler lang lagring og blir bare bedre med tiden, kan nytes til alle årstider. Passer utmerket også som juleøl.

English: This beer has a very complex, yet light taste. For a bock this beer combines maltiness with the fruity clove-like taste of weizen yeast for a great taste experience. The beer is suitable for long-term storage and improves with age. Can be enjoyed at any season, also as a Christmas beer. (Translated from the Norwegian.)

Bottle at Chriso pre GBBF tasting 09. Not much of a weizenbock. Dark lager really. Bit too carbonated. Expected more from this brewery.

A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
Chestnut brown with a thin but lasting white head. Very cheesy and sweet with a little too much carbonation. Nice roasty caramel notes and some faint sourness in the finish. Started well, finished rather standard.
