5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Hazy straw, thin spritzy white head, little lacing.   Wheaty nose, a little barnish, and musty.   Also seems a little bready.   Bready malts on the tongue, biscuit sweetness, minor wheatiness.   Seems like a wheat bock of sorts.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is a little sticky, like apple cider.   Remains bready.   Not bad, maybe like a blonde bock at the finish.   Interesting beer.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Hazy tang-sunrise colored body with a frothy head. Pleasantly developed phenolic bouquet, rich with clove and green banana, melding well with wheat and a delightful yeasts zest and underlying graininess. Sweet, viscous body. Syrupy banana flavor, with touches of roast chocolate, burnt caramel, wheat, and corn. Light clove as well. Flavors never quite form a good balance. Interesting complexity, but a bit grating on the palate.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Bottle: Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice white head and tons of lacing. The nose is grainy and malty with a lot of husk, cheap pale malt and some wheat character. Light citrus notes from either the yeast or the hops, I can’t tell. Lots of yeasty estery notes, reminds me of brewer’s yeast on popcorn (the corn being the operative word). Nice chewy body and a zesty finish. The huskiness of the pale malt being enough to overpower the wheat seems a little odd to me. A rough and tumble weizenbock, but it’s decent.

FatguyRacer (158) - Crownsville, Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent orange with almost no head at all. Leaves a little lacing on the glass as it goes down. Floral and citrus aromas abound on the nose. Crisp and clean on the palate with a nice bitter aftertaste. Nothing overpowering. The is a very good hefe. If it weren’t so damned expensive, I’d probably buy it more often.

AmEricanbrew (5850) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 22, 2009
XXX Weisse pours hazy golden with a fleeting white head. Nice banana clove estery aromas. Smooth medium body. Big banana bread sweet flavors with soft clove. Mildly tart finish. Enjoyed this one.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2009
12 oz bottle labeled as XXX Weisse: Pours a cloudy golden with a spotty-lacing fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet sugary wheat and banana esters with a touch of Hallertau hops. Starts with good fullness and sweet malted wheatiness alongside a light fruity banana character and some doughy Bavarian yeast. Finishes semi-sweet and smooth, a pretty true to style and drinkable weizenbock.

BuckeyeBoy (2752) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle Pours out a hazy gold topped with a white head. Aroma is very nice sweet spice, banans, and candy. Tast is more of the aroma. Lots of spice, and sweet malt. Douglas you had better be right.

douglas88 (6053) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Wow! I can’t believe that Eric found this beer in Boise that has only one other rating. Listed as XXX Weisse, 6.5% alcohol and matching the other rating. I’m 90% sure this is the same beer. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is spicy; bananas, cloves and wheat. The flavor is similar; lots of bananas, cloves, sweet malts and light citrus. Imported by Moradell Imports, Gardena California. Best by March 2009. After looking at the brewery website this is the same beer labeled in the U.S. as XXX Weisse.

Soury, fruity aroma, wheat and citrus notes. Clove notes, spicy. Pale yellow to orange color. Spicy, fruity aroma. Clove notes, and acid. Quite nice wheat, but few bock charakter.
