Nice clear pour with decent head. Distant wheaty cereal notes coupled with yeasty aromas are first evident. Vanilla, banana flavors are featured which evolve into a lingering citrus sourness. Nice bubbly refreshing mouthfeel lingers with a faded icy mustiness with a slight creeping funk echoing in the back. A dry champagne like finish. solid brew

not a bad weizen bock, def representative of the style. It was a very nice pour, with little white head and a cloudy gold and orange body. It was stong in the area of wheat and hops, very characteristic of this style. It was bitter but still good. It left a slightly bitter after taste as well. Overall solid beer though.

Pour is hazy yellowish orange with a huge head and active champagne bubbles. A very nice aroma of banana/clove, grapefruit hops, and a slight hint of sour lemon. This is excellent. Combines two of my favorite styles together and does it very well. This is one delicious concoction.

On tap Capital Ale House. Mostly clear light golden with large frothy head. Wheaty hop nose with some spicey yeast character. Flavor includes a spicey yeast character along with some nice malt sweetness and wheat notes. Fairly dry finish with a bit of hop bitterness. I liked this a lot, as I did the Brooklyner version.

500 ml bottle - thanks after4ever; pours cloudy as hell as pale yellow; huge white head; aromas of flowers, yeast, apples and banana; thick and creamy texture; drinks almost like liquid apple sauce; floral to the extreme; i’m not too familiar with the style, but wow was this just a damn good beer

Pours a hazey orange with plenty cloudy carbonation and a decent head. Pretty heavy lacing. Aroma of spice, esters, orange, clove. Taste is of hops, clove, yeast, and orange. Hops are what make the beer great and unique. Mouth is well carbonated.

500mL Bottle. Pours a beautiful body - very cloudy orange with small white head. Some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is yeast and hops. Taste is wheat, bitter hops, and some alcohol in the finish. A bit too bitter for me personally, which held it back from being really, really good.. hah.

16.9 oz bottle, pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, orange peel, coriander, and sweet malts. Very nice aroma. Flavor not as strong or great as the aroma would indicate. Flavor of orange, hops, and clove. Mouthfeel is a touch watery. Overall a good beer, but a bit of a letdown based on how great the aroma is.
