4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Apperance: Hazy brown. It poured with a big frothy head, but it quickly faded.
Aroma: Mostly the peppery/clovey phenols typical of German Hefes. A hint of some bock-like charactor. Some alcohol.
Flavor: Again with the clove. Some banana. Again typical of Hefes. Wheaty. Rasins of prunes. Alcoholic as it warms a bit.
Palate: Quite full bodied. Velvety smooth. Fairly high carbonation. Alcohol warming near the end.
Overall: Man. If you keep these too cold, you could easily drink 2 or 3 of these monsters and end up on your face. The classic example of the style. Outstanding.

It’s got that hefeweizen yeast smell, but stronger. And I LOVE that smell. Lovely brown-amber color with a big-bubble head. Tastes a lot like an abbey tripel, methinks. Sweet and sour taste of malts and yeast, with some nice fruitiness. My first weizen bock, and I don’t know if it could get much better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a clear mahogany with a fast, fizzy, very-light-tan head. Sustained, lively carbonation. A very one-sided, heavily toasted malt aroma with a surprising amount of alcohol. Flavor started with an unoffensive sweetness, moving to a highly malted middle and ending with a vinous sourness. Medium-bodied with a smooth, almost fruity finish. Good, but definitely not as impressive as the deScription makes it out to be.

Pours brown at the top tapering down to ruby towards the bottom of the glass and cloudy. Amazing thick offwhite head. Aroma first was orange citrus then a prevailing clove aroma struck my notrils. I swirled and sniffed the top of the glass for a good 5 minutes before I realized it was clove I was smelling. The flavor is very complex. Many fruity notes malt wheat yeast and citrus all come out in this beer. The palate is amazingly light for a beer of this color. The palate starts off with sweet then moves to citrus and the clove flavor leaves you wanting more it is very smooth. A tasty brew. I’m glad I gave this style a try. Very nice.
