3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at CK. This strikes me as a bit underrated so far. Clear orange-amber pour with a fairly sized foamy head. Classic nose for the style, with plum, floral notes, peach, fig, and touches of banana and guava. Wheaty and grainy palate, brighter than some, but certainly a nice substitute for something like the attainable Aventinus. Good stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Rehills in Newcastle. Dark amber in colour with a rich, sweet malt flavour and a slight tart and sweet warming finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Medium hazy, orange bronze, piled white head. Tripel-like, inappropriate aroma; gooseberry sourness, orange liqueur, tweak of rauch, background banana and clove. Ashy, yeasty flavour like a BC English effort gone slightly wrong; Tunnel, gooseberry, palinka, peardrop. As a beer, fine, as a weizenbock..fail. But I can’t think of a non-Bavarian effort that’s succeeded. Two minor stinkers in a row from Mikkeller but I still love ’em.

Average from Mikkeller - tasted nice, but nothing particularly outstanding about it...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Update 120831: Tasted another bottle. The light milky touch found last time has grown much stronger over the last five months. Sort of reminding me of a well used classroom sponge. The bottle wasn’t past BB-date either. If I were to rerate it, I’d be giving it a score of 3-4-3-3-6-1.9, but I won’t. Glad I don’t have more of these.
Bottle. A quite clear one, amber in color and with a finger-thick off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is citrusy, wheaty and banana-ish with a faint touch of something sour. Effervescent on the palate, medium to full bodied and with flavors of banana, citrus, pale malts and something lightly milkysour. Pleasant bitterness, both initially and in the end. A decent weizenbock indeed, but a bit unclean maybe. 120405

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at Blue Monk, deep golden pour with fluffy white head. Some raisiny notes, sweet. OK sort of non complex. Fuller syrupy mouthfeel. OK

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Copenhagen, Denmark.
Cloudy amber colour with small white head.
Sweet fruitiness, yeast and wheat in aroma.
Flavour is very yeasty with alcohol. Some fruity sweetness and wheat.
I don’t know... maybe this is the Weizenbock I would like to drink again. The label can’t be much uglier.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fad: Orange klar øl med et meget lille skumhoved. Aftenens mest kedelige øl. Typisk weizen bock, men uden noget som helst specielt til at få den til at adskille sig. Der mangler simpelthen signaturhumlingen fra Mikkel. Som regel syntes jeg han kan gøre det lidt for hårdt, men her savner jeg den. Ok øl men lidt kedelig.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours hazy deep golden with a medium off white head. The aroma is highly malty with light banana notes and some fruit and citrus. The flavour is wheat, dark fruit, citrus and light banana. Light boozy.
