AKA Eisenhugel. Pours light brown with some slight orange and a half-finger wide white head. Aroma is on the fruity and spicy side with notes of cloves, bananas, caramel, and a tad of citrus. Flavor is on the sweeter side: toffee, sweet bread, yeast.

cazort (516) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008
(On tap in Lancaster) Wheaty, rich,a bit sweet and a bit sour, very fruity without being too estery. A totally different category from the indescribably awful Hefeweizen brewed by this same brewery. Enjoyable, and moderately complex.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Draft at the Wilmington location listed as Irontinus weizonbock: Dark brown in color, with a decent head. Aroma was a sweet sugar malt smell. Taste was light, smooth, sweet brown sugar, hint of banana and a nice touch of hops. Over all very good. I would go back just to have another!
