3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Mahrs Brau / Bamberg / Germany --- Aroma of sweet dark malt. Clear brown color, big tan head that drops to a thick cover, sprays of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with medium carbonation that shows only traces of hops. So rich, sweet and dark that I think I detect traces of brown sugar and vanilla. Balanced, with everything complimenting everything else. A solid Weiss Bock at the brewery. Highly recommended.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is ripe bananas, yeast, berries, some toasted bread. Taste is ripe bananas, burnt caramel, prunes, toasty, slightly roasted towards the end. Hints of a sourishness that give it a surprisingly light character. Silky Weizen mouthfeel. A great dark Weizenbock with a nice balance. And I have finally found another good example of this beautiful style after a few mediocre ones.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy, diminishing, off-white to beige head. Sweet-ish, fruity, wheaty aroma, note sof banana, baked banana, honey, clove, pear, slightly chocolately and roasty dark malty background. Taste is sweet fruity, wheaty, minimally chocolately, notes of banana, pear, baked banana, a touch of honey, minimally alcoholic finish; soft and minimally sticky palate comes close to cloying. Well matching, rather unusual chocolately addendum, sadly lacking some yeasty spiciness. A good one nevertheless.
