This is a very interesting weisse bock. The appearance is a deep, somber purple-brown with a large, creamy and carmel-like head. The nose is fruity with something that resembles a very pleasant burnt wood aroma. The taste is quite complex and deep at first, growing more interesting toward the back of the mouth. The wood flavor I picked up in the nose finishes out with a soft, ruby-plum taste. Overall, this is a really nice beer... dry but fruity, with complex flavors throughout the tasting process. I highly recommend this one!

Beautiful dark red/ruby colour. Robust and sweet, with a refreshingly dry aftertaste. A rare top-fermented bock beer.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Pours with a dark brown cloudy body topped by a thick rocky head with a good amount of lace left behind. Sweet and fruity aroma with flowery notes and cinnamon & clove accents. A touch of yeastiness is also detected. Sweet and fruity flavor with a slight yeastiness, cinnamon and clove notes and a touch of spice. medium to full bodied and warming.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2003 Dark like ruby with a head that seems to keep for a long time. Aroma of banana, wheat, cloves. Fabulous flavor and excellent clean taste! Perfect balance. Perfect taste that I expect in a wheat brew! Perfect yeast and hops! This is the best among this style. This is one of my new favorites. Very "old-world" brew taste, at an excellent price. Local store has these one sale for $2.79.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 A very fresh beer despite its journey. Very welcoming caramel and crystal malt colour with a subtle aroma of same. The mouthfeel instantly gives a hint of the ABV. This is not a heavily hopped beer but is nevertheless balances well with the malt. A touch of wheat character in the finish with some spicy overtones. The only problem was the lack of head all the way down. RE-RATE: When a perfect specimen is found it really has an edge over many other beers. The uniqueness of its style is also a real treat.

tallmatt67 (99) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Nice, largish mouthfeel with caramelly malt character. Moderate acidity and carbonation keeps the feeling "clean". Gentle bitterness rounds out the flavor. Overall, very nice.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2003
Large white head, stays with the beer. Dark ruby color. Banana aroma, with strong yeast, banana, wheat, little bit of chocolare and bubble gum flavor as well. Easy to drink, can taste a bit of alcohol. Great beer.

Dark brown/black, nice brown head. Fruity, crisp flavor. A WeiZen Bock to die for. This beer is oh so good!

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2004 20% light nut colored frothy head on top of a dark tea-colored body. Couldnt really grasp too much in the aroma, I guess you can say it had some clove. Palate was quite light and a fair amount of carbonation. First impression was not very good, but it grew on me. Not as complex as I had imagined, yet it is a wheat doppel...there was some noticeable ethanol in the finish. A pretty good beer. --------&# was my 59th beer rated and my 4th that has an overall rating of greater than 4, so I figured I'd re-rate now that my palate is more mature. Aroma is largely banana and clove-like. Pours a murky slightly browner than apple cider color with a fizzy light tan head. Lots of wheat in this beer, bananas and cloves in the middle. Some sweetness too. A little alcohol burn at the end. Bitter finish. I would say that my original rating is probably right on the money for this one. I may have decreased a point in appearance. Solid, but a bit overrated IMO.
