3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow with a one finger white head. Aroma is banana, yeasty. Taste is more of the same. Body is actually medium which is nice. Not bad, but not my favorite weizenbock.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a very hazy yellow with a big head and decent lacing on the glass.
Gracious the aroma is spicy, almost potpourri like... it’s got some banana & some bread... but man it’s got a lot of clove and spice.
The flavor is decently sweet & very spice forward. The finish is dry enough and it’s got a nice little lemon on banana thing happening. The booziness is decently low.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Stub and Herb’s in Minneapolis. Light banana nose, with some dark fruit lingering behind. Medium dark amber/red color. Light but very sweet malty initial, wheat, gentle banana, quickly disappearing finish. Medium body, and a bit powdery and cake-like on the tongue. Okay. Mild, sweet, but not much in mid and finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy off-straw hue with a foamy white head. Nose of a lot of banana, decent spicey cloves and some sweet bready yeast. Taste of banana pound cake, a little tart, grainy yeast, some citrusy, and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Finish is long with a smooth banana ester and some astringency on the tongue. Fabulous beer! Always thought Weizenbocks were darker in color.

A really nice beer. Pours a nice light hazy yellow. This is all about the banana. In the aromas and flavors. A nice sweet breadiness to this as well. Quality stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with dense thin head some lacing. Nose is lemony and bright with damp wheat in the background. Flavor is extremely full with spicy grain-yeast notes up front and a burst of citrusy hops and slight prickly bitterness lasting long in the finish. A favorite style of mine and this beer nails the style and with the use of a tasty atypical hop maybe even raises the bar for American brewers attempting it.
