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.)

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2006
An unclear brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also with lighter notes of wheat and banana - and so is the flavor.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear mahogany with a creamy, beige head. A bit too heavily carbonated. Fruity, fat aroma with bananas coming through. Lovely full body with lots of caramel and fruit. Very subdued bitterness. Lovely - and another promising beer from Haandbryggeriet. 220506

fiulijn (14498) - 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.
