GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big foamy white head that recedes quickly to a small soapy collar. Aroma has lots of wheat character with bubble gum and banana sweetness alongside some light spices. But the added complexity comes from the floral hops, lemongrass comes to mind. The taste has the initial citrus and floral hops that give way to the more familiar Schneider wheat character - sweet bananas, fruity esters, hints of clove. The finish is more dry and bitter than most weizenbocks. The mouthfeel is lively and effervescent, light to medium bodied. This is an interesting take on the style with the hops adding something to the mix. I’m not sure I’d put it up there with the best in the style as it doesn’t come together completely for me.

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle (750 ml Strong wheaty aroma upon opening. Golden appearance with wheat dominating. Medium body. A good example of this style. When you finish it you know that you have had a drink.

Oakes (14844) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
Draught @ Abraxas. Light amber and cloudy. Thin head. The aroma has lots of fresh pale malt. Fairly sweet and a little cloying/doughy. So overall the thickness is maybe a bit much and the sauvin a bit mellow but I like it.

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours crisp golden with frothy white head. Grass and spices in the nose with certain citrus touch. Refreshing but a bit flat in flavour with light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium sourness. Light body, oily feel, soft carbonation and astringent finish. What happen here? I was expecting more flavour, aroma and some more character overall with the Nelson Sauvin hop. Regular.
