3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky, deep amber appearance with a large, off white head, spotty lacing and a good deal of sediment. Crisp fruit aroma, spicy, with an herbal edge. Esters play a suporting, rather than dominating, role typical for this style. Taste is earthy, slightly tart, bitter, with plenty of spicy hops playing off the absorbant wheat flavors. Full-to-medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel leading to a long lasting finish.

50 cl bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a hazy amber color with a large white head. Light lacing. Has a spicey ester (apple & banana) aroma. Flavor is also fruity with just a touch of malt. Medium body. Fairly smooth palate. A nice, easy drinking beer. Thanks Jason.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aromas of clove and slight banana. I had hoped for more hops. Flavor is unique starts off like a typical weizen and then there is a slight kick of hoppiness at the finish. It wasn’t what I was hoping for, but certainly not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very cloudy amber color with a big white head. Aroma is strongly of orange peels with a light bit of clove and wheat. Flavor has an orange peel-clove-hop-spice mix to it with some wheat and banana in the background. A bit odd, though its not bad. I applaud the experiment, but this is way below the capabilities of both brewers. Collaboration = good. This beer = mediocre.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [Courtesy of nicolascage, session @ Ølbaren] Average to large thick white head that really lasted. Lovely hazy golden body. Thick film like lacework. Lars described that small peaces of hops could be found in the foam when they had the draught version. The sniff gave the impression of heavy sweet hoppy aroma, citrus, floral, hint of elderflower. Notes of coriander, banana and wheat could also be felt. Over the palate came underlying fruity notes and what appeared as pineapple. Full bodied with a thick texture and an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness and a hint of acidic. Extremely smooth and nice. Sweet and dry finish that ends light bitter. Wow that was amazing and apart from the Aventinus this was the second best Weizen Bock that I ever had! 18-09-2007, Thanks Lars and Kim!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured an orange color with just a touch of haziness. Head was tall, bubbly, and white with good retention. There was only a bit of lace on the glass at the end. Rich aroma of banana, cereal grain, alcohol, citrus, clove, and a touch of caramel. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a strong clove flavor accented by banana and flowery hops. It also tasted a bit like smoked BBQ pork at times and there was an occasional grapefruity note at the end. Interesting.

RB #1600: 50 cL bottle, thanks to Lars and Kim for sharing especially this and many more beers on the 18th of September at Ølbaren. This poured hazy yellow to orange with a little white head. Very strong citrus fruity aroma. Very citrus fruity flavour, heavy heavy hoppy flavour. Most amazingly the finish gives a great caramel malty flavour which breaks the dominant hop-flavour. Fantastic.
