probstblueribbon (3718) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2009
500 ml bottle shared by Lubiere (merci!), served cold in a goblet. MA06/09.

App.: Dirty orange-gold with lots of yeast flecks, ring of white head. Aroma: Pine, orange peel, pineapple, tropical fruits, tangy mango, apricot, a wicked fruit salad with hop backing. Palate: Medium body, fairly full but gentle effervescence. Flav.: Lots of the esters but also some great pine/resin/earthy hops, spiciness (coriander), slightly wooden, grapefruit; off-dry and so-so bitterness with a pleasant fruity-malt finish.

An absolute masterpiece, I love this beer.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2009
Draught@Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A foggy orangey-golden body, coated by a thin and dense offwhite head. Delicious, fresh hop aroma; sweet citrus, mango, apricot, flowers and grass, backed by a crisp wheat scent. Taste has a fine citric fruitiness, a clean and medium sweet wheat character. Notes of honey and fine fruity hoppiness. Well-bodied, smooth and extremely inviting. Amazing stuff!

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2009 500 ml bottle. Finland. Dark orange colour with average white head. Fruits, banana, toffee/caramel, smoothiness and some alcohol and hints of smoke in aroma. Rich, yeasty, fruity, hoppy and wheaty flavour with some alcohol present. Very enjoyable. Long-lasting hoppy aftertaste. I would like to try the other one, Brooklyner Schneider version...

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 20, 2009
At a tasting, thanks shachar. Murky somewhere between yellow and light orange colour,aroma of banana, tropical fruits, bubblegum, Strong pronounced bitterness with soapy perfumy notes and some alcohol coming through, strong and pleasant sour aftertaste starting strong but fading quite quickly. Very intresting and beautifully balanced beer.

malrubius (2586) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 19, 2009
500 ml bottle in weizen glass. Opaque cloudy orange amber with lasting white head and lace. Banana orange peel and hop pellet aroma. Sweet honey peach flavor overwhelmed by tart hoppy finish with lingering bitterness like chewed grapefruit peel. Medium body and medium low carbo make for nice mouthfeel. I just don’t think it works. Why hop a good weizen bock? I don’t want a bitter tart weizen. It doesn’t taste good. I find it amazing that this is rated higher than Weihenstephaner Vitus. Anyhow, that’s just me I guess. Had to change this from Brooklyn & Schneider. Got ’em mixed up.

zvikar (4134) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 19, 2009
At a tasting, thanks Shahar, Nice hazy orange with a small to medium head, aroma of apricots, vanilla, marmalade balanced with some acidity and herbs, flavors of apricots with some wild herbs, some alcohol and some bitter herby finish, complexity is great, body is full, the beer is well balanced and mature.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. Hazy golden with small, white head. Citrus and dried banana? Nice body. Refreshing, too bad I only bought one. One of the better weizen I have had. The only big problem is that it is a bit strong but on the other hand it is a bock so I can/will accept it :-)

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2009
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Rerate: Aroma is a bit too much lemon and citrus, but the hops shine brighter on this one. Bottled Febr 2013, so it could be fresher? Lots of citrussy hops. Still only medium bitterness, so most of the hops are in aroma. Quite refreshing. Just the finish is a bit dry and it actually lacks some sweetness from the weizen. Decent beer. Bottled. Cloudy golden color, thick slight off-white head. Aroma of slight banana, lots of grain, some yeast, bit hop. Sweet banana taste, with a bitter aftertaste. Really like a heavily hopped german weizen. 2.9

50cl bottle. Thanks to AndersAnd. Deep hazy orange with white head and lacings. Sweet and hoppy nose. Lots of wheat, yeast and American hops. Citrus, pine and wheat. Nice.

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2009
Gorgeous pour, truly "Imperial Weizen" look and color. Great aromas of pine, banana and citrus mingled with spices. Taste - HOLY WOW - did they ever tweak this batch for the brewer’s own likings!!! This is custom work. Rich yet crisp flavors, banana citrus cloves orange spruce - incredibly good. Unforgettable, I want a case of this - bottle is from New Beer on Chrystie in NYC.
