3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a reddish amber with a thin dissipating white head. Nose is caramel and honey. Very creamy texture and nice carbonation. Taste is sweet and full, notes of honey, clover, ginger, caramel and grain with just a kiss of hops on the finish. Very flavorful. An excellent weizenbock that pairs well with semi-soft cheese and crackers.

Bottle. Pours orange amber with a thin head. Spicy and fruity, with a wheaty malty base, yeast, and medium sweetness throughout. A little bit on the boozy side, but not bad overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Murky, unfiltered amber-burgundy. Thin soda head with rising carbonation bubbles. Some banana clove and rich caramel in the aroma. A pretty decent example, full bodied, sugary, rich. Sugar rum soaked dark fruit, not so brutal in the alcohol presence but it is certainly ever-present. Big and rich, good, but not quite nailing it.

Bottle thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Hazy brown pour with a thin wispy beige head. Nose is my mom’s banana bread, pure and simple. Taste adds sweetness in the form of toffee and caramel. Dig it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured deeper garnet with a short-lived smoked tan head. The aroma picked up sweeter berries, dry-roasted chocolate, and some lovely deeper banana toward the back.. definitely some warmth in there. The flavor found muddled overripe banana and chocolate at the core with tangy wheat and cloves around.. dry spices and peppery warmth through the finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with low carbonation.. decent feel and flow.. this grew on me.
