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!

Nice beer. Pours murky brown color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is pleasant with lots of clove and dark dried fruit and bread. Flavor is sweet with minimal bitterness. True to style and a big winner for Rahr!!!

Thanks to crajun for the trade. Dark brown, almost opaque, with a tan head. Fruity aroma with dusty malt, some banana, dark molasses and raisins. Nice malty Weizen Bock flavor. rich and complex, following the aroma.

COMRADEJOSH (318) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Aroma has a strong fruity and funk like that of some Belgian abbey ales but is very dark like an imperial stout. Flavor profile has a hint of raisins to me over a simple malt bock. Tasty and very warming but not too overpowering with alcohol. Medium carbonation and smooth on the palate.

kevinator (1184) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Nice malty and burnt sugar aroma. Deep mahogany color with a fizzy white head. Above average weight with appropriate carbonation. Strong malt bill with a wood essence and licorice hint with fig. Good beer.

Draft. Deep dark brown color, fluffy beige head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate covered bananas with light spice. Taste is chocolatey, fruity, clove. Very tasty.

drjay44 (2866) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained, beige head, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 25) body.....nose is heavy banana/bubblegum, light cocoa, hints of chocolate, no hops, balance to the yeast........taste is slightly sweet, with very heavy banana/bubblegum, barest hints of clove, from the yeast, cocoa, chocolate from the roasted malts, finishing almost dry with minimal hop additions....mouth feel, medium, sticky, light alcohol warmth, carbonation adds creaminess. This is a very yeast dominated confection, with the banana/bubblegum, quite light clove notes, almost overwhelming the other backbones of malt and hops. A different yeast would make for a more complex and better beer. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose/taste of chocolate bread, toffee, grape, molasses, banana and clove sticks. Medium body.

weihenweizen (2027) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber, from blutt59, with one finger beige head which takes some time to dissipate. Dark brown with small medium brown highlight. Aroma is roasted malt/banana, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly creamy texture, and medium small-bubble lacing. Taste is roasted malt, banana, esters, hints of clove, and dryer finish. As much as a dopplebock as a weizenbock. Nice amount of flavor, alcohol is well covered, but not for me.

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a dark brown with a nice head. Aroma is some banana, some clove, and sweet malts. Medium bodied. Nice flavor - some wheat. Good beer.

An average doppelbock style beer. Some roasted malts and light fruits on the nose and palate, but nothing special.
