Co-worker brought this beer over. He had found it overseas while in the service. This is one of his favorites and I see why. Poors reddish with a creamy head. Taste is of raisons which is sweet with a bit of bitter, spice, fruity finish. Pretty smooth on the palate. This is a really good beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Thick banana aroma, yeast, some syrupy sugar. Thick muddy reddish-brown, solid creamy off-white head. Warm light fruitiness: bananas, raisins; spicy cloves and maybe cinnamon; a bit of sourness to round it all off. Medium body. Great stuff. The 8.2% alc. is hardly noticeable -- until after a half glass or so.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought a 500ml bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. Aroma of cacao, bananas, fruits and some herbs. Has a hazy dark brown color and a cream colored head, carbonation is simply perfect. Sweet taste of herbs, bananas, caramel, cacao and a little bitter and alcohol on the aftertaste. Overall the best Weizen Bock so far. And after Tap 5 the second best of Schneider.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Allendörfer.
Aroma: lightly yeasty-soapy aroma.
Appearance: large, rocky, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and mostly lasting longevity. Hazy, dark-amber to light-brown body.
Taste: moderately sweet, caramel malty initial flavor and heavily to harshly sweet finish with long duration.
Palate: medium body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation and alcholic finsih feel.
Overall: Yuk. Aroma didn’t pique my interest, but appearance was great and made up for the aroma. Then it was time to taste . . . and yuk. This stuff was too sweet for me. I wouldn’t drink it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy hazelnut brown with two fingers of tan head and decent lacing. Aroma of sweet fruit such as banana and apple with clove spiciness and a nice wheat and yeast smell. Taste follows nose with banana, tart apples and quite a bit of clove. A hint of brown sugar and the wheat comes through. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very pleasant, semi sweet and easy drinking. The higher ABV is hidden well.
