Arayaga2 (1879) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Hazy orange with biggish white head. Aroma is spicy with yeast and corriander, and smell s a bit cidery. Taste is oddly fleeting, and cleanly departs the palate almost instantly, leaving only the faintest hint of hop and banana to ripple over the tongue. $3/500ml edit: the brackish yeast layer on bottom makes it like drinking two different beers. More bitter, more flavor... nice surprise.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle: This looks like murcky cider with a ginormous fluffy head. As the head slowly recedes, notes of wildflower honey, sweet pine, rose petals and spicey alcohol emerge. The dryhopping adds a nice complexity to the style. Very delicate, but loaded with dimension. Very soft carbonation and lots of wheat create a lush mouthfeel. The body is loaded with esthery fruits and creamy caramel malts. Very nice.

Geiserich (3618) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2009 Bottled: Aroma is fruity (plums), spicy, sweet malty and full of flowerly aroma hop. Very hazy, dark orange, light brownish color. Huge creamy head. Flavor is sweet, yeasty and pleasant fruity (apricot, plums). Notes of wheat and spices (pepper, cloves). Remarkable alcohol content. Long dry, bitter finish, herbal hops in the end. Very tasty weizenbock and a pleasant warming beer. Many thanks to DerDoppelbock

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2007
At Capital Ale House - Downtown recovering from the heat after the Shockoe Craft Beer Festival 2007. Cloudy brown body with a medium frothy white head. sweet hoppy banana aroma. Sweet hoppy banana and light caramel flavor. Definitely a hopped up hefe, certainly an interesting and tasty creation.

bobaidan (523) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Pours cloudy gold with a big head of larger bubbles. Aroma is floral/grassy hops which I was not at all expecting from this style along with the classic banana. Mouth feel is lively with a lot of carbonation. The flavor is unique with a mango like presence along with more hops than is normal for a Weizen Bock. Somehow it seems to work pretty well. Thou I don’t think I’ll be making this a regular, I’m glad to have tried it. Be sure to mix the yeast well, it makes all the difference in the world.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle from west lakeview liqours in Chicago. Cloudy orange with huge white head. Aroma of lots citrus hops, sweet malt, some spice and yeast. Flavor is citrus and pine hops, orange, some dough, caramel. Creamy and med body which is the most weizen part of this beer, well that and the mild spices. Overall a great collaboration with two distinct breweries. As it warms it moves from IPA to Wit in complexity. A strange example of when the beer warmed it actually lost most of the hop aroma.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Thanks to EDA and John for the bottles! Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a towering cap of white head. The aroma carried a hefty floral and perfumey hop presence, dusty, musty yeast, singed, rum-infused caramels, and a pinch of lemon.. full and intriguing. Flavor had toasted caramel and wheat at the core with some sharper wheaty esters.. lemon zest accented the sides of the tongue leaving a dusty trail.. bit of overt alcohol showed up on the sweet finish. Medium-bodied with a creamy middle paired with prickly wheat and hop bitterness.. left a sweet, but somewhat sharp finish. This was good beer and an excellent idea.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2007
A creamy, sticky white head settles over the beer, which pours a hazy, thick pureed old banana color. The aroma is very banana and sweet hops. The taste is sucrose and banana with a slightly old, pungent hoppy finish. Finishes with a cloying hoppy sweetness. The beer seems very simple in the flavors it presents, but surprisingly the banana is not overwhelming nor is it as typically offensive as I find bananas in my beers. This is good stuff, if a little too carbonated for me. Edit: As the beer warms, I get a resiny, piny hop bitterness that tastes like hop pellets in the finish. Also, perhaps a little of an alcoholic taste too, if only because of the sharpness of hops. There is a creamy banana/citrus (think dreamsicle) taste to the beer as it warms that is cut by those flavors. I stick by my rating. Very good, but not excellent.

Poured hazy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma of fruit, spice, and hops. Kind of reminds me of a saison. Taste was totally different. Big bread flavor with some fruit hints.Very different and drinkable.
