Rating #400. Dark caramel body with blink-and-you-miss-it head. Soaked earth aroma riven with cloves. Tingling taste thanks to the calm yet steady carbonation. Gentle flavours; bit of a banana dessert I once tried with caramel sauce but in a dutifully understated fashion. Attractive sweetness towards the end. Alcohol level is well contained. A worthy #400 deserving of its reputation.

Dear me..what a lovely experience. Had a lovely odour of an active and unfiltered beer. A nice brown colour and a persistent head. Tasted magical, with a delicate bubbly taste of champagne, and fruity notes that my palate cannot even begin to describe. It was truly an experience and one that I definitely enjoyed.

Deep reddish brown with a slight haze. Maintains a dense off-white head. Rich aroma profile of toasted pumpernickle bread, plum, banana and cloves. Full, chewy mouthfeel. Initial flavor of ripe dark sweet fruit with figs and dates coming to mind. Some whiskey or port- like notes in the background. 8% alcohol cuts in nicely to balance out the sweetness. Pleasantly sweet finish with just a touch of roasty bitterness. A world class Weizenbock!!

Muddly looking active beer with a banana like aroma and a banana flavour with a slight hint of bitterness. Overall quite a plain beer, its major benefit is its refreshing qualities.

BeerBlockaid twisted my arm to try this one. I am always suspicious of anything ’bock’. I have had too many run-ins with Sam Adams type bocks that make me sick and spoil my taste for beer for weeks... But here goes.. Pours a beautiful ruby brown, with a creamy head which disappears completely after a while. Lovely sweet fruit and malt aroma. And the taste... Oh My God, this is delicious! I was not prepared for just how good this stuff really is.. What a brew to stumble into! Sweet plums, fig, old orange, malt, caramel, light spices, banana.. very complex and wonderful. Thick, smooth mouthfeel. Warming alcohol on the way down, and a pretty good kick, too! This is superb! It may turn into a race between me and Beerblockaid to get back to the bottle shop to clean them out of this. You’re wasting time if you haven’t yet tried this awesome beer.

1 pint bottle.(shown in foto) Phenominal surprise. I picked this up tonight and wasnt expecting much. Boy was I surprised! Poured very dark, rich brown colour. Smell is of roasted malt and kiln. Hints of chocolates, clove, and fruit (prune, raisin) thats well balanced and excellently represented. Man, I am going to stock this. Has a slight watery hint as you take bigger sips. Great aftertaste. very rich and smooth. I regret not picking up the rest of the stock, or at least the other beers brewed by this company. They are definately onto something!!!

Very nice rich plum color, very intense flavor, a good beer with a heavy meal.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2006 Plum color nicely matches the strong plum aroma. Bubbly head quickly disipates. Sweet start, with hints of caramel and banana. Leaves a whiskey/bourbon aftertaste.

02/01/2005. Purchased at New World, Thorndon. From a 500ml bottle into a tulip shaped beer glass. Pours a deep and murky reddish brown with a little effervescent head that dies away. Aroma is superb - cinnamon and cloves, wheat, ripe banana and whiskey. Dominant flavours are roasted caramel (tending to burnt) and liqourice, which lingers on the tongue after swallowing and then fades to a cognac. An after dinner sipper, 500ml is best shared with a friend.

Full-bodied and smooth. This is an excellent ale. Looks beautiful with a thick head and rich brown color. Definitely recommended.
