COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Neshaminator – This is our take on a German wheat bock, but with a small twist. We brew this 8.5% holiday offering with orange blossom honey and keeping true to the style, over 50% wheat along with dark Munich malt, a hint of Chocolate malt, and German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops. While most German bock beers named with the ‘-or’ ending are traditional double bock lagers, we decided to break from tradition a bit with not only the name of this beer, but the use of orange blossom honey as well. Prost!

dmac (3919) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
22oz bomber from Crossroads. Poured a muddy dark brown with an average sized foamy beige head, sort of ugly. Aroma is nice, chocolate, fruity, slight hint of sour chocolate, wet nut shells, bread dough, brown bread and a hint of sweetness and some alcohol. Fuller bodied with average to stronger carbonstion and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor of bad chocolate, some nuts, bread dough, touch of dark fruit, wet wood, alcohol. Not bad, this brewery isn’t doing anything mind blowing but most offerings have been very decent.

Bomber bomber from b-law. Generous foamy head. Dark brown color. Aroma of caramel, slight caramel. Medium light sweetness. Sugary malt notes, honey also. Nice mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden. Toffee tastes. Pretty good stuff. I’ll be back...

EithCubes (4743) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bomber. Nose of rich and sticky caramel, really sickly sweet candy, with wheat, yeast, and a healthy dash of spaghetti sauce. Pours dark, opaque with volume, supports a dense, rocky tan head. Way sweet taste with light bread and fruit, really working a nice date-and-cherry-dipped pumpernickel, very low bitterness with some brown sugar and beautiful toasted bread crusts. Jammy orange marmalade undercurrent and spicy hops, even has some light diacetyl showing. It’s getting a nice effect from the Munich, that hollowed-out lager middle, even if everything else is screaming "ale! ale!" Sticky lips and fullish body, alcohol utterly (and dangerously) hidden. I’m inclined to be against this kind of take because of its heavy sweetness, but the flavors are fun and the intensity plays well with food.

gripweed57 (608) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Cloudy deep brown color. Large dense rocky tan head..sweet roasted malt aroma has notes of fruity yeast, dark wheat and metallic melon. Sweet and subtle toasted wheat malt flavor has a light banana ester character. Yeah, there is a slight touch of honey here, too. Rich cocoa-like nuances. Though it is somewhat true to the Weizenbock style, it lacks the complexity and richness of the classic brews of the Fatherland. Good, none the less.
