1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Iím a big fan of hefe weisse and bocks, but this one is simply almost undrinkable. Very sour, yet thin taste that is almost unbearable to start with but your mouth will tolerate it a bit better after a couple of sips. The taste makes you want to double check the best before date on the bottle - more than once!! Simply one of the worst tasting experiences in a long time.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A delicious, beautiful beer. Pours hazy golden/orange with velvety head. Rich weizen aromas, banana, bubblegum, bread. Taste is smooth and robust, high ABV not apparent at all. Weizen bock is fast becoming one of my favorite styles, especially if done well.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A bit tangy, but otherwise characteristic aroma. Appearance very textbook like plus the amount of grounds, which make the experience almost scary, in positive way. Taste is otherwise like it should in weizenbock including a hint of banana, some citrus and wide taste spectrum. But, there is a very clear, sour flavor that overwhelms all other nuances. Not for my taste. Palate is somewhat light, though it might result due to that sourness. Basic carbonation level is OK for this beer.

500 ml bottle direct from the Brewpub in Laaber, Germany. Pours a nice hazy orange with good white frothy head. Aroma has banana and ripe fruits, yeast, and spices. Taste is sweet, light sourness, spices, and alcohol warmth. Palate is, pepper, fruits and sourness. A really good WB

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle from Alko. Murky amber color, white head. Awful chemical aroma that hits like a ton of bricks. Tart flavor that reminds me of balsamic vinegar. Lingering toasty finish. Couldn't drink more than a few sips.I thought the bottle was contaminated, but other reviews mention similar things, so I guess this is just really awful. Drain pour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Julioís liquors. Nice amber color with foamy white head that coats the glass. Aroma is sweet with a good citrus hoppiness and maltiness.Taste is simcoe and / or Chinook hops with some toasty malt, light caramel or toffee notes. Bitterness hangs around for a longer duration. Overall this is really well balanced and is really well crafted. I would seek out the Krampus and lay a beat down on him.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Surprisingly sour weizenbock with long-lasting aftertaste. Gets more body and balance when warming. Re-rate: Really good weizenbock in fact. Not too sour at all!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, yeasty and fruity. Just a bit too cloying for mine. Very light, lots of orchard fruit, candi sugar and a rich finish. I was more than happy with a half pint that I shared.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l - BBE 03.10.13, from Alko, 20130212) The beer poured dirty orange coloured and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, banana, caramell and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, tartness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, tart and bitter. Should this beer really have been tart? It was quite confusing and not so pleasant.
