3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the monthly meeting of the Champaign-Urbana Beer Club. Sampled side-by-side with its older sibling, the Eisbock. Tasty caramel and brown sugar notes mesh with a load of banana flavors. Faint presence of hops, but mostly malt here as one would come to expect from a good bock. Good stuff, a bit overrated, but if one is rating according to style, this is certainly up there. Would like benefit from some time in oak barrels.

500mL bottle. Pours a deep, hazy ruby/amber with a medium layer of beige head. Wonderful aroma of fresh bananas, cloves, and wheat, with a caramelly sweetness and some cooked brown sugar underneath. All of the aroma components make it into the flavor. Flavor also picked up some floral hops, which gave the brew some bitterness and helped carry the flavors across the palate. Cloves and hops meshed to produce a bitter and somewhat sour note to the finish. Most excellent brew!

Foamy head, elegant bulbs, malty bitterness is formidably smoothed with flavours of dark chocolate, peach, figs and hints of tropical fruits (mango?);
This is the grand cru blanc de noir champagne of beers (even though the title champagne of beers belongs to Berliner Weisse), complex but accessible ...

The first Weisen Bock I tried must have been bad, because this one is absolutely delicious. Pours more like a soda-pop than a beer. Heavy clove overtone in the aroma. Bitter with some carmel and chocolate, banana and orange, and of course the clove. This is a great Weizen Bock. If you find it in your local beer store buy it. You will not be disappointed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep red color with a fairly thin head. Very fruity aroma. Bananas, caramel, pear. Definitely mouth watering. Definitely taste cloves in the flavor with plenty of cooked banana. Sweet but not to sweet. Slightly more citrusy than a doppel bock. Very enjoyable. I had never tried this style before but I’m very impressed with this one, I would like to try some more.

Bottle at The Ginger Man, NY. Dark hazy amber with a small off-white head that left good lacing. Complex fruit and spice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Full flavor with long finish with a small alcohol bite. Very good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 Bottle. Pours a dark, hazy red/brown with a nice tan head. The nose is full of clove, banana, more spices, and a dark fruit bouquet. Nice mouthfeel, and a complex, appropriately sweet flavor. Hints of cloves, grapes, banana, thin chocolate, and a weakly tart finish are present. Pretty nice.
