Rich brown with a craggy head. Malt nose with a small amount of hops. Brown sugar dominates the flavor with vanilla but they are nicely balanced with hops.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Wheat shows up in the dense, lasting head and lace. Deep copper-brown color, slightly spicy aroma, a little stale. Doesn't have the complexities of a good weizenbock, hardly any wheaty spiciness, banana or clove character. Not overspiced. Sweetish.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 On tap at Pickled Parrot on the last weekend they were open. The beer was deep amber red with a decent cream colored head and little lace. The aroma is a bit malty and lightly Weizen like. The flavor is nice and malty, but finishes very clean and refreshing with nice body. Overall, this is pretty good and a nice surprise.

I like, I like. I receved this beer in six pack form from doing a good samaritan deed for my neighbor. I guess the bottles in the recycle bin are noticeable. Anyways a true spicy smell awaits you as you pour into a glass a small but manageble head appears. I drank the first one from the bottle and didn't enjoy this feature at first. A real nice taste with a spicy taste to go with it. A real good beer from Sam Adams.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark copper with tan head (short lasting). Little lacing. Aroma of wheat, with a shade of pepper or mint. Wheaty flavor with some sweetness. Enjoyable, bitter finish is crisp. Good brew, I think Sam Adams' beers are a good value.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper color with a small head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma. Medum-bodied but still a little thin for a weizenbock. Hints of fruit(figs and plums) and spice(ginger) in the taste. Finish was a little gummy.

Bottled, Cherbourg, Massachusetts. Deep amber coloured beer. Nice conditioning. Malty and strong with a good bitter kick at the finish. Had several of these whilst rigging my good buddy Steve's new Christmas day technology.
