The Brooklyn version was better, but this is one of my favorite light-colored wheat beers ever nonetheless.

Unclear dark golden with a medium white head. Heavy wheat aroma along with sweet fruits like mango and mandarine. Sweet wheaty flavor with a sharp alchohol leading to an alchohol bitter finish

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of joss. It pours a really murky milky copper orange beer with a tall, nicely lasting white head which leaves a beautiful lacework. The aroma is extremely interesting, fresh and mindblowingly good. Yasmin, peach, apricot, vitamin tablets, yeast with a huge amount of blood orange and mango showing up which is accompanied by bittering hops. Wonderful taste. Reminiscent of Unibroue Trois Pistoles in a strange way- very fruity with a similar yeasty touch, though different in style and hop profile. Some marmite sneaking accompanied by wild strawberries, yasmin and mango. Sweet. The hops add a lot to this beer (dry hopping) which results in a relatively low bitterness. (Though high for the style of Wiezen Bock). Hops, tropical fruits an licorice in the finish. Schneider Aventinus is really overrated in my opinion- this Weizen Bock transcends the latter. Thanks a lot joss for this fantastic beer!

Skarpt markerad beska för att vara en veteöl som ramar in upplevelsen och fyller den till brädden med ett smakrikt flöde av allt från apelsin till banan. Ett helt orangeri av dofter och aromer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
NIce hoppy beer that I do think I could have guessed was from a combination of East IPA and Aventinus. The hops are very nice in this beer and are all citrussy. Not that strong, but it does serve to kill a bit of the yeastiness of the Aventinus. It also takes some of the nicer flavors of Aventinus away. A good beer, but I wouldn’t say its better than either beer necessarily. Its just entirely different. Wish they sold it in sixers, but that seems to be a rare thing these days.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The look is golden orange in color with a decent white head. The smell is hoppy, wheat, yeast, clove, fruits, little bit of gum, and slight spices. The taste is sweet, hops, wheat, clove, and spices. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful, luminous wheaty-tan body with a plush, thick, off-white cream topping. What strikes you first is the whack of fresh hops in the bouquet, quite unusual for the style. After further straining, sprinkles of banana and clove are there as well as a solid wheaty backbone. Citrusy hop flavors and tangerine wash over the palate, followed by the quickly dancing banana-clove pair. Alcohol is well crafted into the beer, but you quickly feel almost overwhelmed by it along with the combination of hops and phenols. Light soapy/sour banana finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served in dimpled mug. Pours a cloudy orange. Sizable off-white head, with moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) with slight muskiness and mild alcohol. Excellent mouthfeel; effervescent with microbubbles of foamy head adding decisively to palate is primarily citrus, with tangerine flavor dominating. Lemon and white pepper in background, with minimal flavor of alcohol. A fine beer, and a credit to all parties involved.
