3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 This is the Antithesis to the Light Beer. Plums, Nuts, Fruits, Spices are the order of the day with this beer. magnificent dark amber colour but the head didn’t last very long. The Aroma is of Fruit and Berries. The Flavour is Fruity/Berry/Bananaey/Wheaty/and Winey. There was not very much lacing on the glass. The over all palate was a combinatin of sweetness and fruitiness and yeastiness that it combines for a delightfull Hefewiezen experience. Kudos to Schnider & Sohn. Salud!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 A chocolate brown color, almost like cola, with a red tint and large, foamy head. Very nice nose of spices, clove and banana. Nice fruity, sweet, chocolatey taste with a slight acidity or sourness. Very nice! This beer is one of my favorites.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a brown muddy body topped with a thick beige head. Rich and complex yeasty nose with hints of spices, vanilla, banana and caramel. Mouthfeel starts with a good carbonation. Taste is vineous and carries some notes of fruits and chocolate. Long and very enjoyable warming final. For years, this is been one of my favorites. Too bad I have now to go to Ontario, USA or Germany to get some samples... Shame on the SAQ!!!

Draft. Brown beer with a big white head. Malt and plum flavors. Light aroma but a bit of a wheat aftertaste. There’s a bit of a wild yeast flavor to this one. Not bad, but it does make itself known the more you drink.

On tap and in Aventinus glass (what a bar). Cloudy dark brown with large lasting heading. Aroma of dark/dried fruits and banana both of which carry into the flavor. Finishes with a light warming.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is one of my favorite beers. What better beer to have as my 100th rating.
Bottle. Poured correctly (making sure to get the yeast) into an Aventinus glass, of course. It has a sweet malt, plum, banana and cookie dough aroma. Cloudy brown/red in color with a nice frothy head that lasts for a while. Some lacing. Notes of banana, apple/pear, clove, vanilla with a hint of chocolate. Creamy texture. Nice silky smooth finish. Nice weizenbock.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color with a huge foamy head. Foamed over when I opened the bottle. Well carbonated. Lots of sediment and even a hop leaf were floating in this. Aroma was sweet and hoppy. Flavor was way too sweet for me. Maybe I am not used to the Weizen Bocks, I haven’t tried enough of them. Sweet and Syrupy. I won’t be going after this one again.

rich , dark brown appearance. smells like raisins and chocolate. tastes like raisin (sweet), plum (tart), and hints of hops and chocolate. A bit of a grape (sour) end on the palate. This is a real fine beer.
