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.)

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2007
Dark brown color; huge head, just foam. Very malty, both the aroma and taste, a lot of caramel, very sweet, but also some off-flavors due to the over fermentation. Uncontrolled.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2007
500 ml bottle - batch # 23. Almost black, extremely big, brown head. (I had to pour to glasses to stop the foam from the bottle). Aroma is coffee and some sweetness. Flavor is coffee, liqourice, roasted malt. spme alcohol. Dry finish. Overcarbonated - and that´s a shame; otherwise it would be 3,9.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2007
Near black colored, slight red hints. Medium sized lasting brown head. Sweet, plummy, slightly yeasty aroma, some roastiness also there. Not any wheat can be found. Medium bodied. Flavor is also sweet with plums and some caramelly roastiness. Roasted aftertaste. Slight disappointment.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2007
(Bottled) Hazy dark reddish brown with a medium, tanned and bubbly head. Vinous, dryish aroma with loads of yeast and some dried fruit, berries and licorice. Licorice-roasty-malty, slightly sweet flavor with well-hidden alcohol. Medium-bodied, somewhat foamy-carbonated palate. A quite pleasant brew, which seems way underrated here.

anders37 (16460) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a big but fast disappearing creamy tan head. Sweet malty caramel aroma with some hints of licorice and yeast. Thick malty flavor with licorice and yeast, also hints of alcohol and dark fruits. Long warming sweet malty finish and some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2007
Bottle. Head was small and slightly off-white creamy. Color was brown with a clear sparkling body. Aroma was caramel, rye bread, banana, yeast, and cola-licorice. Medium boded with a fizzy carbonation. Flavor was mostly sweet, but some burned like candies could be felt in at the end. Ok Weizenbock

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2007
Opaque brown colour beneath a big tan head - lots of sediment in this one. Powerful aroma of prunes, chocolate and even a bit of smoke. Nice body and sweet malt flavour again with nice chocolate notes. Brief but full aftertaste - nice one for a winter evening perhaps.
