This beer has a brown body - hue apperance and a fine white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet-bitter.

don't love this stuff as much as i used to...tastes like cotton candy. sweet malt with sweet wheat and banana tastes, the roasty taste mixed with the carbonation, and depth though make it very tasty

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Fizzy head. Murky brown appearance. Slight yeast aroma. Bubbly flavor rich with yeastiness and banana flavors. Feels tingly on the tongue. Fairly good dunkel, and alcohol is well disguised.

Clear medium brown, beige head. Smells like baking banana bread. Taste: banana, clove, black pepper, cinnamon , vanilla, walnut apricot and pear. Very smooth, very drinkable. A marvelous beer.

My first weizenbock. Brown and cloudy appearance. Huge beige bubbly head. deep aroma of wheat, banana, pear, spices and yeast. Fruity flavour of banana, plums, lemon. Wheat and yeast is also noticable. Warming spicy finish with hints of banana and yeast.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2003
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Re-rate. Nice orange color with light tan full head. Malty clove banana aroma. Thick and sticky malt flavor. Lingering clove malty aftertaste. This is the way that I remember it! Yuck. Mustve gotten a bad bottle. God awful! Was looking forward to this too. Will need to re-rate at some point.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2003
Good, weird head with like white dots and decent lacing. Colour of the beer doesn't really do it for me though. Amazing clove aroma - great stuff - with some muesli (grain and sultanas), plum and honey. Clovey, dry malt flavours with a long dry alcoholic, champagne type finish. Really bubbly in the mouth which doesn't work too well with the size of the beer. It certainly smells fantastic but the alcohol kind of clashes with the refreshing weizen character, which keeps it from getting a really high rating.

It's good, but not that good. It has the typical weiss-beer spicyness. On top of this it is a bit more malty.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2004 This is the first time that I've drank any kind of wheat beer much less a high quality one like this one. I am very pleasantly surprised by this beer. When you pop the cap, you get a really nice wheat smell right away. It pours nice with a decent size head on it that doesn't last very long. The real surprise is the first sip. It not only has a tinge of wheat taste to it, but a very rich and full flavor. Its much sweeter and complete than I had expected. Several flavors show up after the first few sips including berry, carmel, and of course the wheat. At 8% ABV you can hardly notice the alcholol as it goes down very smooth but am sure will get its full force in a few minutes. Each sip gets better and better especially as it sits in the mouth. Aftertaste is decent as it lingers in the mouth, however the real joy is in the first 4 to 5 seconds as it slowly goes down the throat. I will buy this again as it is a very smooth beer with plenty of balanced taste. Whether your a big wheat beer drinker or not, this is a must if you pass by it in the store.
