4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 An absolutely beautiful murky orange/dark brown color that can only come from this style of beer...of course, a massive tan head. The aroma was very sweet...full of banana/clove (I actually confuse those two often), subtle alcohol, some wood tones. The flavor was very sweet...clove, bubblegum, banana, alcohol (well hidden), and at times I got some great vanilla chocolate flavors. The feel was soft, bubbly, very smooth. Fantastic beer.

As far as I could tell this is the same beer as Ommegang Hennepin. I really enjoyed it, but it tasted exactly the same.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy dark brown with a large creamy uneven offwhite head. Big clove, yeast, and banana aroma. I found the noticable alcohol taste an unwelcome intruder that distracted from the other flavors of this beer. Perhaps I should try again when I am in a more tolerable mood but I see no reason to.

Ruby red in color, kept an awesome off-white head throughout the half liter, full body, a floral hint in the aroma as well as the aftertaste, very smooth, very drinkable, I would have drank this all night but there were others that I needed to try while I was at Ludwig's Garten in Philly, outstanding weizen bock!

(Bottle). Theoretically I might encounter a better Weizen than this one, but I doubt very much that will ever happen. Murky brown colour, large head, aroma of Paradise: Cloves and other undefinable spices, dried fruits (figs), oak and sandalwood. Oaky cloves flavour with hints of burnt caramel. Alcohol is present, but not overwhelmingly so. Dry aftertaste. This is a thoroughly well made beer! (Thanks, joss!)

This is Great beer. The alcohol is the first thing I noticed in the nose, then comes the bubblegum estery aroma. It pours redish brown with a short lived head. Very rich and smooth, not too sweet (or cloying), very warming with that wonderful Barvarian yeast flavor. Well balanced. I can just about chew this beer. Weizenbocks just don't get any better than this.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2003 This a Great Wheat Bock beer. Impressive head and a malty ultra smooth flavor with nice yeasty tones overall. Comes off better on the warm side. Great with german food.

Great beer, beats Mahr's by a long shot. Not as many different tastes, but nice and malty, slightly sour(not much) touch of alcaholic warmness. Very smooth, easy to drink for such a strong beer. Great beer.

On tap at the Steinkeller. A rich, dark wheat bursting with banana-flavored esters and sweet malts. Definitely in the top echelon of wheats. A return visit is already in the works.

I haven't had an orifice-related experience like this since last time Stan came to visit from Walgett!
