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.)

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
The head is huge and the foam is growing out of the bottle even after pouring the first glass... The beer is black with a brown hue and the aroma has notes of wheat, plum, fruit and sweetness. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of dark fruits, hints of chocolate, plum, raisin, port wine and a very light bitterness. It has a lot of notes, but they are kind of weak, and I would like some more body and power, even if I do like it. The biggest problem is probably that every wheat bock I taste, is compared with Aventinus. 1804

madsberg (10141) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2007
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Dense brown head. Aroma of fruits, some liqourice and roast. Flavour is yeasty and light spiced. Has liqourice and fruitnotes. Is a bit bland and watery imo. Dies rather quickly on palate and has a light yeasty and caramelly end. Not really my kind of beer. A bit too bland and uninteresting,.

Taste is sweetish; malts, candysugar, ripe banana, wheat and yeast. Some fresh acidic flavors in the aftertaste. Medium body. Oily mouthfeel. Long light bitter/acidic finish.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2006
500ml bottle (batch 31, bb. April ’09). Gives a shot and a good smoke when opened. The content tries to get out of the bottleneck on its own (so be sure to have a glass nearby). Huge, noisy brownish foam, quickly disappearing, but can be enjoyed every time you fill the glass. Aroma has got notes of spiciness, some wheat and dark malt. Sweet espresso taste with solid hints of aniseed. There is also riped fruity notes in the flavour. Moderate yeasty ending. The flavours are being blocked by the overcarbonation of the brew, but the taste comes through when the brew developes in the glass (12.11.2006).

Bottle. Light brown high and lasting head. Very dark red almost black body. Mild malt aroma. Mild coffee flavor. Heavy carbonation. Does not taste like a beer with 7.5% alcohol.
