COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex with dark malt flavors that are complemented by esters of banana and clove-like characteristics found in any good Weizen Doppelbock. Traditionally, there was an ordinance in Germany that reserved this style for the sole consumption of the royal family; now they are for everyone!

jhamp9 (950) - Corinth, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Poured a dark, slightly hazy reddish brown with a tan head. Not much lacing. Very strong spicy aroma with some breadiness. Taste is also strong on cloves and some banana way in the background. Nice medium body.

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy reddish brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of banana and clove with a bit of spice and a hint of dark grain. Flavor has a lot of clove with some dark grains and banana.

legion242 (2100) - Richardson, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2011
What a huge disappointment. Pouring into the glass there were waftings of wonderful esthers, banana, and clove. But the body was terribly thin and the flavours very weak.

Not happy to pay the over $9 bucks, but lets see... . pours a murky dark leather brown .. . light foam, hmmm .. . light light spots of lacing .. . some light clove, light chocolate banana, brandy, field trip wet rotting wood, alcohol, and plum skin .. . light silkiness and thickness, easy to drink but lacks the assertiveness that most weizenbocks have, very weak in that sense .. . thin mouth, good in the sense that you could pound this like no ones business, but again, no girth or character .. . wish i was back in the kruger park, that was a good time.. . A really enjoyable brew but way to simple to call an authentic weizenbock, ... . .THIS is the sissy weizenbock talked about on the label, arrogant pricks... .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5y4_W-humw .. .. mammy, mammy.. i’m not very clear after that...

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Deep dark caramel, moderate to large frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Heavy dark bready nose, slight dark pitted fruit, semi-sweet.   Strong breadiness, dark pitted fruit, mild sweetness, a bit of caramel and wheatiness.   More bockish than wheaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty heavy, without being cloying.   Spicy finish, mild wheatiness, bready, and thankfully not too cloying.   For a Weizen Bock I will say that its not as Wheaty as others, but its also not as bready and cloying.   Pretty tasty stuff.   Thanks to mora2000 for the bottle!

On tap at Grape Juice. Murky brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is cocoa, yeast, and little fruit. Taste is lots of banana, powdered chocolate, and a little spice

Bomber from ericandersnavy! Ain’t no way this would get to Cali otherwise. Pours really dark brown with a creamy/foamy 3 finger beige head. Wow. Mixed chocolate, dark fruit and banana aromas. Maybe dark malt. Med body. Flavor is pretty much like chocolate banana with clove spice. And there’s some dark fruit (prune?) and dark malt. Mouth loves this stuff.
