Appearance: Super cloudy and light yellow. Nice fluffy head that sticks around. Yep, itís a german wheat. Aroma: The usual banana clove but an exceptional floral aroma shines through. The dry-hop is clear and present. Flavor: Very prominent bitterness, strong yeast esthers that provide the normal banana and a very soft breadiness. The hop flavor might be there. Definitely a floral flavor, but the yeast and bitterness cover most of it up. Mouthfeel: A little slick, dry, strong carbonation. Overall: Excellent beer. Really takes the weizenbock to the next level. The dryhopping sets this one apart. The aroma really and touch of hop flavor shine and make this beer something unique. I got the german one that is dry hopped with hallertauer saphir. Iíd really like to get my hands on the one dry hopped with amarillo. I would drink these all night.

Pours a hazy/cloudy gold with yellow and has a good sized foamy white head and a good amount of effervescence, some orange and amber hues, lots of floaties in this brew, aroma of banana and the inside of a banana skin, some soft light fruit fragrances, faint bazooka gum wrapper powder in the background, has wheat fragrances, some floral and grass fragrances in the background (hallertauer hops?) fruit sweetness, bread flavor, some hop bitterness mixed in with tartness at the finish, some malt flavor, banana and fruit, faint clove flavor in the background, has a good citrus tartness at the finish, about a medium mouth feel maybe a touch more with lots of carbonation makes this creamy on the palate, very nice, looks pale for a weizen bock.

Should this be a weizenbock? Really?? Hazy golden, some off white head. Strong exotic fruit and citric hop aroma. Pinapple, mango, and banana. Strong bitterness, light fruity, floral, citrusy exotic fruit flavor. Some wheat character, light spiciness. Clean, lively palate, slightly overcarbonated.

bhensonb (12130) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2008
500 ml bottle marked 8.2%. Hazy gold color with frothy 7 finger off-white head. Aromas are primarily citrus and wheat with a fair backing of banana. Near medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is wheat, citrus, clove spice. Itís wild. Tropical fruit comes and goes. Finishes very dry and pretty bitter. Not to mention a bit spicey. Itís a sensational drink.

harrisoni (14826) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2008
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Cloudy dirty/gold/brown. Thick beige head. Hop, banana, bubblegum, grapefruit aroma. Cereal in mouth. Lovely hoppy aroma. Plenty of hop and cereal in mouth. Lovely version of a weisse, like a weizen IPA. Hops are quite resiny/piney, but goes well with the banana bubblegum. What a lovely drink. I had this as an aperatif to Sunday lunch after doing some work in the morning and felt like Iíd earned it. Alcohol doesnít come through at all. Some passionfruit/mango throughout. Stunning.

markwise (4624) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow with particles in it. The head is very frothy and energetic. Has definite aroma of banana, spices, cloves, and citrus. The taste is slighly heavy with all of the notes present in the aroma, a bit heavy on the banana. The finish is kind of peppery and banana-y and I swear I taste Bretomyces.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2008
16.9 oz.bottle on 6/17/08.

Aroma - Floral, spicy dlove, light stone fruit, and citrus

App - Cloudy, bright gold pour with a healty, durable white head and thick, sheeting lace.

Flavor - Very subtle light sweetness, zesty tartness, gentle bitterness, perfectly balanced.

Palate - Light to medium body, medium carbonation, clean and dry palate.

This is simply a wonderful "collaboration" effort, and a sensitive and well done evolution of the style.

Upon opening the bottle there was a noticeable lack of aroma. The flavor is like that of a weak spicy banana. Not impressed.

Really unique weizenbock because of all the hops. Great aroma of hops. Pours deep, cloudy gold (more tan-brown once you get all the sediment from the bottom), with classic wheat-beer carbonation bubbles, but lots of floating particles, too. White bubbly head. Taste was way more hops than I expect-- it has the mouthfeel (tingle) of a wheat beer, with a bit of fruit and honey, but the hops really dominate. This is really in its own class.
