JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Very cloudy amber color with a big white head. Aroma is strongly of orange peels with a light bit of clove and wheat. Flavor has an orange peel-clove-hop-spice mix to it with some wheat and banana in the background. A bit odd, though its not bad. I applaud the experiment, but this is way below the capabilities of both brewers. Collaboration = good. This beer = mediocre.

Cloudy amber with a nice big off white head. Aroma notes of hops, cloves and banana. Flavor to match with a bit of a dry hoppy finish. Major thanks to vyvvy for the bottle.

Bottle. [Courtesy of nicolascage, session @ Ĝlbaren] Average to large thick white head that really lasted. Lovely hazy golden body. Thick film like lacework. Lars described that small peaces of hops could be found in the foam when they had the draught version. The sniff gave the impression of heavy sweet hoppy aroma, citrus, floral, hint of elderflower. Notes of coriander, banana and wheat could also be felt. Over the palate came underlying fruity notes and what appeared as pineapple. Full bodied with a thick texture and an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitterness and a hint of acidic. Extremely smooth and nice. Sweet and dry finish that ends light bitter. Wow that was amazing and apart from the Aventinus this was the second best Weizen Bock that I ever had! 18-09-2007, Thanks Lars and Kim!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 21, 2007
500 ml bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured an orange color with just a touch of haziness. Head was tall, bubbly, and white with good retention. There was only a bit of lace on the glass at the end. Rich aroma of banana, cereal grain, alcohol, citrus, clove, and a touch of caramel. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a strong clove flavor accented by banana and flowery hops. It also tasted a bit like smoked BBQ pork at times and there was an occasional grapefruity note at the end. Interesting.

RB #1600: 50 cL bottle, thanks to Lars and Kim for sharing especially this and many more beers on the 18th of September at Ĝlbaren. This poured hazy yellow to orange with a little white head. Very strong citrus fruity aroma. Very citrus fruity flavour, heavy heavy hoppy flavour. Most amazingly the finish gives a great caramel malty flavour which breaks the dominant hop-flavour. Fantastic.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 bottle....aroma: wheat. banana, and light on the spice with a nice citrusy touch (orange and lemon)......appearance: light to medium orange brown with fluffy slightly off white head....taste: smooth, slightly wheaty with emphasis on the weiss (banana and clove) with orange and lemon zest. just a touch of bitterness in the finish but mainly dominated by the weiss-ness.

Damn this was tasty. Cloudy brown body with yellow hints and creamy head. Hoppy banana nose with clove hints. Yeasty body with plenty of hops and malt.

Bottle. Hazy amber coloured with a white head. Sweet aroma of bananas, caramel, hops and pine needles. Flavour of bananas, caramel, hops and pine needles. Hoppy finish. The idea of making a hoppy weizen bock is quite good.

Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle pours a thick cloudy brackish dirty orange with pillowy off white head. The aroma is right on the mark for the style. Its nice and big with sweetness, wheat, banana, tartness and hop spiciness. The taste is very similar with sweet sugary malts, hints of banana and spice along with a nice hoppy zest underneath. It leaves a pleasant taste behind. I’d love to have this on tap on a hot summer day. Excellent summer brew.

Slipstream (2142) - USA - SEP 17, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 This half liter bottle came as a nice surprise - how could I not try this collaboration between the Brooklyn Beer people and a leading German brewer? There is a cloudy, golden color with a substantial head. The fresh, sweet aroma has sour, yeasty notes. Forthright flavor of wheat, hops, and lemon - bitter with a nice tingle on the fade out. Now here is a robust brew that puts most stateside wheat beers to shame.
