500ml bottle from Swolf3, thanks Steven. Gold color with a big white head. Lemony aroma, slightly sweet too. Sweet lemony flavor as well, maybe a little banana in the finish. Not bad, could drink this quite often.

Sampled on 1/1/2009. This weizen bock pours a slightly hazy medium orange gold color from a 500ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with excellent retention and good lacing. The aroma is floral, banana, clove and caramel malt. A medium bodied weizen bock. The malts are caramel, cereal and sweet, with hints of banana and pineapple. The hops are spicy and floral.
Lively carbonation, with lots of very small bubbles. Some melon and pear flavor in the middle of the taste. Touch of alcohol at the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean, crisp and a little dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a touch of alcohol.

Bottle. Pours with a very murky yellow color. At the end all the sediments cause the beer to turn murky brown. Turned my wife of for sure. However the beer is very interesting: first off it pours with a gigantic head that quickly dissipates. Aroam is complex, I get citrus but also caramel and gingerbread spices. Flavor is more like citrus with a dry hops finish. I really enjoyed this one.

Pours with a huge, rocky, off-white head. Light brown body with good lacing from the head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, banana, toffee, vanilla, and a slight hop in the finish. Taste is alcohol, yeast, and raisins. Very rich but cut a bit by the dry mouthfeel. Light bubbles.

Crushed with Jakebra. Pretty nice. Complex. Pours a huge mother head with floaties. Flavor is just what it promises. A wheat with hops. Spicy flavor. Quite nice.

Excellent weizen bock. A hopped up version of Aventinus. Cloudy and bright gold liquid with a decent head. Excellent aroma. Sweetly spicy and fruity. Notes of banana clove and wheat combine with citric hops. A whole lot of strength to the nose. Flavor is sweet lemons and the spiced biscuit taste of good wheat. Sudsy mouthfeel on this very refreshing beer. Perfect for a hot summer day.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 Bottle, 8.2%. Spicy hop aroma. Cloudy orange colour, small floaties. Small stable white head. High carbonation. The flavour is spicy with a little soapy notes. 7 3 7 3 16
Bottle, 8.2%. 4 years past BB date - lagered in my own cellar. Still a good hop aroma, seems caramelly and grapefruity. Cloudy orange colour. Good white head, a bit fizzy, but OK stable. The flavour is nicely sweet with a good grapefruity hop note. Does not taste like wheat beer - which is the way I prefer it nowadays. Good mouthfeel with an isotonic feel in the finish. 7 3 8 4 16

I love the addition of hops to a weißbier. This makes a perfect combination for next summer. It tastes much better as it warms. A good balance of hoppiness and that yeasty banana and clove flavor that Bavaria knows how to brew well.

Bottle Pours out a hazy gold topped with a tall cream head. Aroma was great clove, spice, and light hops. Tast more of the hops and spice. Nice and thick. I have had a few and they are GREAT. I will have to save a few for later in the year.

Another winner from Schneider and Sohn. A hoppy beer with a grassy pineapple kick. Amazing aroma one of the best smelling beers I have ever tried. Huge fizzy/frothy head. I have never poured a beer that I could hear the fizziness like in a diet Coke. Muddy clarity with medium to large particle floating. Beautiful medium amber appearance. Moderately astringent on the finish. You can definitely taste the alcohol but it is not too overpowering. The flavor was a little too astringent for my taste. Still a great beer even if over priced.
