3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, poured aggressively and developed an abounding head. Very nice amalgamated aroma of the typical banana, bubblegum and spice without any one thing standing out. Taste has some crisp wheat and sweet barley accompanied by a firm hop bitterness, fruits and spice- again, like the aroma, everything blended and balanced. Alcohol is pretty well hidden (8.2%? really?) Nice collaboration of two great brewers, tasty and the price point isn’t out of reach for frequent drinking.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Huber Haus. Pours a butterscotch-colored cloudy dark gold with a creamy thick head that is difficult to get into the glass. Aroma is not hoppy at all. At warming, there’s some banana flavor, but it’s mostly wheat. The flavor is amazing. This has a wonderfully balanced hop bitternes that blend well with the mild citrus lemon and orange tastes of the weizen yeast esters. A very thick beer. Just a super delicious treat. Clearly and as usual, you must try this one vom fass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange pour with a huge and delicious looking white head. Banana is strong in the aroma along with some clove and yeast. Musty flavor, in a good way. Lots of clove and spice up front, yeast and banana towards the middle and finishes on a lemony/yeasty note. Dry finish with lingering sourness and citrus. Pretty cool it’s with Brooklyn brewery, they make excellent beers as does Schneider. Packs a punch as well!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
