Darkmagus82 (1785) - - SEP 19, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 7-30-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a super hazy and murky orange brown colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is lighter overall, consisting of wheat and some yeast. Along with these smells are notes of a more spicy and banana nature. The spice is of coriander and clove creating an overall spiced brown bread and yeasty banana smell. Taste – The taste begins with a wheaty and lightly roasted brown bread flavor with a moderately strong yeasty taste upfront. As the flavor advances, more and more wheat comes to the tongue, all at the expense of the more roasted brown bread and roasted flavors that were upfront. Some citrus of an orange nature as well as lots of banana begin developing more toward the middle to the end of the taste. These flavors are joined by flavors of more yeast and lots of spice of coriander and clove (just as the nose would have predicted). The mix of these flavors take the taste to its end where a fruity and moderately sweet wheat taste is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little on the chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The chewier body is quite nice for the wheaty and roasted nature of the brew while the average carbonation is good for keeping it very drinkable and for keeping with the sweeter fruit flavors of the brew. Overall – Overall a rather enjoyable brew. Sweet, yeasty, fruity and lightly roasted. Very easy drinking and rather enjoyable overall.

1000th rating. Draft at Otto’s. Pours cloudy red/brown with off white head. Banana and clove nose with some caramel. Tons of banana with some mile clove and brown sugar notes. Light and quaffable. Solid offering as always.

Sammy (8848) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
cloudy golden with a good white head. The hefeweizen is the core, and much more complexity. Some sourness. Good whte lacing. Above average mouthfeel, the carbonation is unobstructive. Well malted sweetness, yet stilltangy and fruity.More of a sipper.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 8, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Noses fresh and vibrant in yellow-colored sub-tropical fruit flesh. Certain banana, backed with passion fruit seeds and a touch of caramelized mango pulp. Bright and yeast-filled. Pours a mahogany-copper, hazed and murky with a tall finger of slow settling off-white head. Flavor runs a bit more subtly. Some initial clove-cigarette sweetness plays off the dry yeastiness in the beer. Banana bread and minerals. A sparkling touch of hazlenut alcohol dapples the mid-palate and harmonizes the yeast and malt. Not actually too sweet for me. Good fruits in the yeast flavor, supported by well-integrated alcohols and subtle malt character. One of the few Weizenbocks I would actually call refreshing enough to quaff on a sweltering June day.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Draft at brewpub. Pours amber brown with an off white head. Nice aroma of banana bread and dark wheat malt. Medium bodied, but with a thin texture for a Weizenbock. Flavor of raisens, clove, and banana with some decent residual sweetness. I would describe this as a session weizenbock as far as flavor and palate. It does have the alcohol, and is hidden well.

cheap (4172) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Brownish hazy appearance with an aromatic and volatile wheat aroma. Good wheat and banana impact. Does have a fairly strong alky impression on the taste buds as the style dictates. Good creamy carbonation on this brew. Good example of this style. Not over powering like Eisenbahn Weizenbock (Vigorosa) or Clipper City Heavy Seas Hang Ten. Fairly mild and well mannered like Sprague Farm Lightning Ale and North Country Summer Weizenbock. Not quite as enjoyable as Victory Moonglow Weizenbock. One of the better beers I’ve tasted at Otto’s.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5045) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark brown color with a small khaki head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and fruity. The flavor was bitter, tangy, a bit wheaty and had light citrus and strong banana elements. The finish was dry malts and banana.

3fourths (8214) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Pint at the brewpub. Big, huge nose of cream and bananas, very potent, very heavy creamed banana nose, strongest I think I’ve ever smelled. Sweet, almost sugary flavor, mellow, creamy palate, fluffy mashmallow banana flavor, very intense, very sticky.
