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.

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.

Bottle. Big big bready yeasty nose, tons of cloves and almost as much banana. Lemon and a slight nutmeggy touch. Cloudy dark yellow-brown pour with a large and full white head typical of the style. Meaty and brawny. Taste is a dark, dulling yeast with French bread and sourdough. Full and a little crisp, rose petals with light citrus. Touch of blood oranges and grapefruit, probably from the dry hopping. Dry, dark, and a little murky on exit - I think the alcohol should be dialed down a bit, if possible. A good Hefeweizen mixed with the high-alcohol catch-all that we call an American Strong Ale. Not something I’m buying again (kinda messy), but a good go.

Pours a five+ finger white head that vanishes slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Cloudy murky amber color, yeast in bottom of bottle. Medium-strong carbonation and medium bodied. Yeasty nose. Flavor is yeasty, medicinal and herbal. Lingering hoppy/tart aftertaste. Different kind of wheat beer. Higher ABV is hidden. $4.30 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer and Wine Wells, ME.

Fruity and citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange color with a large lingering head. Fruity grape taste with a slight amount of hop bite finish.

Killer stuff here. Golden yellow pour with an large and fluffy white head. Big banana aroma with some clove and maybe cereal. The flavor is huge here. Lots of the aforementioned banana clove stuff going on with a fuckload of hops thrown in for good measure. Honey sweetness and a bit of cantaloupe as well. Well made beer that should sit alongside Aventinus and Aventinus Eisbock for all of eternity.

Bottle; poured a murky ruddy orange. Large white head. Aroma of wheat, lemon, spice, banana and yeast. Nice soothing mouthfeel. Flavor was subtle, tasty and good. Banana, lemon, spice and caramel/toffee. Some general fruitiness as well; possibly apple.

500ml Bottle: Aroma is medium sweet. Smells of floral hops, honey, pollen, blueberries, honeydew, and spices. Poured brown in color with a large off-white head that lasted throughout. Very small lacing. Cloudy. Opaque. Lots of particles. Very sparkling. Looks like diarrhea. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malts, toffee, caramel, honey, pollen, vanilla, resin, and Cheerie-Os. Medium body. Sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Bittersweet finish of caramel and pine. Overall, I like this more than most other Weizen Bocks, probably because of the hops. Complex all around.
