3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark red/brown, white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet and very spicy. Initial taste is of spices, mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a hint of fruitiniess, most distinctively apples. The finish is very sweet with little bitterness, and lasts a good long time in the mouth. There is little taste of alcohol, but it doesn’t take too long for the kick to settle in. Body is not especially full and well-carbonated. Perhaps a bit too carbonated, but I personally prefer too much to too little. Truly the best Weizen Bock. Even friends of mine who aren’t into beer as much as I am can enjoy this one.

Bottle. Poured with an orange brown color. Very carbonated head. Some fruit and malt in the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is a little high but pleasant. Chocolate with a little hop at the end. Some clove notes. Pleasant beer.

(On tap) Brown colored, little head. Mild banana aroma with some malt in there too. Very full bodied. While drinking I didn’t know how much alcohol there is, but it feels that there is some. Starts with carbonation bite and ends with banana flavor and warm mouthfeel. Very dimensional brew, full body is nice. Fine experince!

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 Had it from the bottle at Barleyhoppers in Tampa. My first Weizen Bock. I like the mixture of styles between the bock and wheat. I really enjoyed the more carbonated take on yeasty wheat beers and as always the hay like earthy malt flavors of a wheat.

Pretty amazing wheat beer. Tons of citrus going on. Nice colour. A little too much malt and ’earth’ for me for a wheat beer though.

Muy buena cerveza alemana. Es de trigo, pero tostada/negra. Mucho cuerpo y bastante armo. Muy buen sabor.

Delicous beer. Brownish colour with very little head. The taste is wonderful and complex, the banana is definitely there but so is some spice with a bready undertone. THere is also a hint of malty sweetness. Good mouthfeel, with a the alcohol just suggestiing its presence in the finish.
