4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bb05/2015, cheers motelpogo and mowbeer. Slightly expired, just in time for a post-fast is this gorgeously taut and tasty rendition of a Weizenbock, Czech style: cloudy cheesecake (1) yellow pour with dense white eggyoke cap. Nose still quite contained, opening up more to earthy spring pasture, quince and cheesecake (2) than your usual clove and banana milkshake; pleasant wheat aromas. Combination of mouthfeel and taste is nothing short of impressive and off-style: like a tightly wrapped cheesecake (3) speckled with candied gooseberry, dense yet incredibly drinkable and even quenching, this Weizenbock is nothing like the imposing TAP4 Weizenbrick drunk in comparison before. Buttermilk and lemonade are as if woven into the fabric of its cheesecake (4) body, assertive aroma hops adding another zesty layer of citrus and pickled orchard fruit. Drying clean finish, finis opera. Did not see this coming, particularly post-BB.
