Cloudy burnt orange yellow color. Banana and bubblegum aroma. Creamy palate with a clean banana finish. Very spot on for the style.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 A lighter colored weizenbock from what I am used to but a very enjoyable brew. +++ Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a murky orange-beige color with a huge foamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left incredible lacing. The aroma was strong sweet clove with moderate banana and bread. The flavor was sweet clove, bread and pepper with a mildly boozy undertone that was fairly well kept in check by the strong bready malty presence. The finish was long with bread, clove and pepper lingering. Thick and full bodied. Well done.

Draft at the Brewery. Served in a 500ml weizen glass. Pours a lovely muddy orange, glad to see this was unfiltered! Nose was a bit disappointing, mostly allspice, maybe a slight hint of nutmeg and some day old citrus. Body follows with similar flavors, with heavy malt and a slight hint of cherry on the finish. Good mouthfeel and decent drinkability, this is on the lighter side of Weizen Bocks I’ve had. This was by far the highlight of my first trip to the Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh.
