5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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 ...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appears a a dark hazy red toned brown with red being more noticable towards the bottom of the large wheat glass that it was drawn into. Nice tan head that never truly dies out is a right-on sight. Not a whole lot going on for lacing though.
Smell is awesome. Lots of bavarian yeastiness going on and kicking into a hearty wheat with caramel, dark fruit, banana, clove, and a hint of chocolate and bubble gum makes this top notch.
The taste is superb, especially this draft version which makes the complex aromas and tastes seem less contained.
The mouthfeel is smooth and about medium-full bodied. All the flavors run nicely along the palate without gumming up and becoming cloying. You can keep these coming all night for me on draft. The ABV isn’t as noticable from the draft either. I love this brew!

Drank this bock wheat out of it’s signature glass. Full bodied and full of flavor. Dark copper-auburn color. A kick ass wheat beer that hit the spot. Bulbously delicious!
