4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a thick three finger high head that settles slowly to a solid cap. The resulting lace is a bit tattered, but sticks nicely, leaving a broken webbing behind.
Smell; lots of strong bananas and cloves with a big wheat backing. After this warms up a bit, a little lemon peel and some sweet malts come through, as well as a touch of bubblegum. A bit more weizen than weizenbock in the aroma, but still very good.
Taste; the bananas, cloves and wheat are just as prevalent in the flavor as they were in the aroma. Bubblegum and a zesty lemon fill out the middle, and then a sweet maltiness, and a bit of a tartness, come through in the finish.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a very creamy smooth carbonation, and just an incredible drinkability. This one goes down so smoothy. If this was available anywhere near me I would keep some on hand all of the time. I picked mine up in Grand Rapids, MI.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, unknown bottle coding. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big pear, apple, ripe banana, white grape, orange peel, wheat, honey, bread, light caramel, clove, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big pear, apple, ripe banana, white grape, orange peel, wheat, honey, bread, light caramel, light clove, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, honey, bread, light caramel, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a nice malt/fruitiness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and moderately slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice weizenbock. All around good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours a dark, hazy orange with a large, off-white, frothy head. Aroma is lemon, very strong lemon. Quite sour and crisp, some appleskin, some yeast, light banana. Taste is a lot of lemon, sour and crisp again. The strength of the lemon is unbelievable. Dry and sour. Some weizen flavors too, wheat and clove and yeast. But the lemon dominates. Some apple skin there too. Fairly full and crisp, decent carbonation. Not what one would expect from a weizenbock, but deliciously sour.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full malty – wheaty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and some fruitiness, some banana and light sourness, some yeast. Body is average to full, malty – wheaty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light banana and yeast. Finish is average to long, malty - some wheat and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, light banana and faint sourness, some yeast. Caramel sweetish weizenbock - way too sweet for me.
