4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: muddy purple brown with a quickly retreating light tan head. Aroma: strong aroma of sour cherries and raspberries, with brown bread, caramel, graham cracker pie crust, and a bit of vanilla. Taste: quick hit of tootsie roll, before a sour/tart note like a rodenbach rolls across the tongue, with notes of vanilla, old wood, and a slight earthiness. Finish: lingering sweet/sour notes are pleasant on the palate, slowly fading with the sweetness becoming just a bit more pronounced. Notes: Amazing, wonderful hybrid beer. Amazing what the barrel aging imparts, for this no longer resembles anything close to a weizenbock and much more seems a traditional sour ale/lambic hybrid. Deceptively, dangerously well-hidden alcohol, and a great, smooth, refreshing palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Cloudy amber brown with a thin rim head, tiny dots of lace. Malt begins the taste, but it is soon overwhelmed by wine overtones that take on a character of dried dark fruits. The difference between this and similar brews, is that it is very light and easy drinking, dangerous even. A unique brew, and an appealing brew. Recommended.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, 2013, poured into weizen glass. Pours medium brown with small beige head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is complex vinous, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is complex vinous, tart lemon, and some caramel. Undercarbonated, interesting, alcohol is well covered, like nothing I have had before, and I would have likely guessed Belgian Strong Ale rather then weizenbock in a blind tasting.
