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.

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 (16728) - 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 (5085) - 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.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Aroma of honey and lemon citrus. Golden yellow and opaque with fizzy white head. Strong honey comb, lemon, pine, and fruit aroma. Thick body with strong carbonation. Bitter finish with a good long duration. Very good.

Poured a very thick lemony off white head. Aroma is clean and subtle. Mouth feel is effervescent & full. The lacing is made up of very clear luminescent bubbles. The banana sweet wheat flavor is not so much balanced as it is beaten down but the dry champagne flavor and hard hop edge. There is an almost chalky lemony flavor followed by a very brief sharp hop bite. Interesting combination of flavors. I have never had a wheat that works with so much IBU. Its refreshing and you can feel it in your belly. Itís good.
