Pours a dark hazy copper. Smells earthy with hints of banana. Has a sweet, malty flavor with a fairly strong spice element. Flavor has hints of sage and banana. Finishes smooth.

This is the best beer I have ever had so far. I won’t go into all of the details as it has been descibed pretty well by others. I love it. Nothing beats it. Two of these rocks my brain with warmth and happiness. THe BEST! Did I mention that I like this brew?

pours a hazy burnt orange color with a crreamy off-white head. very complex sweet fruity aroma. i detect plum, apple, caramel, and clove. sweet and fruity up front, chaning to a more more spicy hoppy finish. lively carbnation and mouth feel.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2004
The one and only. Hazy brown, huge fluffy white head in my Aventinus glass (just like the picture). Nose and flavor are quite complex with hints of spicy clove, pear, banana, sweet bread, and brown sugar. Tangy, fruity, spicy, with only a slight hint of hops near the end to round it out. Medium to full-bodied, fizzy carbonation, tangy, dry, spiced fruit finish. Consistently an amazing brew....

duvel tulip glass: incredibly loud pour, very fizzy. it smells great - chocolate tangerine candy. it looks great - very dark brown body with ruby highlight. it tastes great - smoke, sweet chocolate or caramel, fruity orange punch, and spice. damn. sounds disgusting, but i like it. it’s also strong and i cannot tell. a fizzy dessert! a weizen bock, egh? i understand, at least implicitly... i sense some oberon and i sense a typical good bock with some smoky characteristics.. very nice brew! NOTE: after reading some reviews i noticed everybody notes banana... now that you mention it, some of that smoke i sensed seems to be part of the banana you guys note. in any case, this brew is complex to me.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Bottled. Small near-white head quickly fading into a fading ring, no lace and topping a dark, reddish amber body, hazy with some rather large solids in the bottom of the bottle, like solid, blackish flakes. Mouth is fairly full with an incredible amount of foamy(but with larger bubbles, as would provide silky mouth if there weren’t so much) carbonation that is very dry and reminding me of a good belgian strong ale, very clean and crisp. Malty mouth with fruit(banana, prune), caramel, bitter clove(mild enough to be quite pleasant; adding, not overly dominating), sour yeasts in the middle, a finish that is bitter clove, sour banana, burned wood...not oak, maybe redwood, somewhat like a cinnamon stick with much of the flavor boiled out. Aroma last to let this warm up a bit: wonderful aroma of carmelized bananas, light, light clove, touch of vanilla; sweet and clean, reminding me of "Dreamery Banana Split" ice cream, which is wonderful stuff. Aroma picks up prune and touch of alcohol with warmth. Bock sweetens up as it warms, ever so slight taste of sweet alcohol peaks out from the clove and caramel, aftertaste becomes sweeter, picking up more caramel, touch of banana. Pleasantly dry, not parching; lovely to drink, complex. 10/2007 Ridiculously big head, fully lasting, with no lace, topping a chestnut body. Lovely aroma of fruits, banana, wheat, esters, guano (yes, this stuff smells a bit like a cave, or ocean rocks frequented by seabirds), and alcohol blended throughout. Mouth is medium-full with lots of light, foamy carbonation and a dry finish. Becomes somewhat watery as it warms. Flavor is fruit, fruit, fruit! Concord grape, fresh berries (ras, cran), banana, wheat. This stuff is a thrill to drink: it’s like fizzy fruit juice with some alcohol. The alcohol blending in this is flawless. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Pours dark red/brown, white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet and very spicy. Initial taste is of spices, mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a hint of fruitiniess, most distinctively apples. The finish is very sweet with little bitterness, and lasts a good long time in the mouth. There is little taste of alcohol, but it doesn’t take too long for the kick to settle in. Body is not especially full and well-carbonated. Perhaps a bit too carbonated, but I personally prefer too much to too little. Truly the best Weizen Bock. Even friends of mine who aren’t into beer as much as I am can enjoy this one.

Bottle. Poured with an orange brown color. Very carbonated head. Some fruit and malt in the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is a little high but pleasant. Chocolate with a little hop at the end. Some clove notes. Pleasant beer.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2004
(On tap) Brown colored, little head. Mild banana aroma with some malt in there too. Very full bodied. While drinking I didn’t know how much alcohol there is, but it feels that there is some. Starts with carbonation bite and ends with banana flavor and warm mouthfeel. Very dimensional brew, full body is nice. Fine experince!
