Another treat from Hoser. Almost no head on dark red Amber. Aroma is more intriguing than enticing. Flavour is sweet malt and ABV.

This is more like it Listed at 8% I believe. Very faithful rendition. Full, well rounded with a nice soft, squishy banana and caramel flavour. Not a long finish, but well made. Looked a bit arse though - I hate that cloudy brown baby poo colour

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Dark chocolate brown with a fine head. Aroma of chocolate and wheat, bananas, spice, cake. The flavor is a chocolate-banana cake, with spices. rich dark roasted chocolate, dry finish with melon. This is about the richest and most filling beer I have tried. Huge! Powerful, smooth, excellent. A meal. The best weizenbock I’ve had to date. Don’t say that about too many Japanese beers!

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 24, 2007
Pours the color of syrup with a large, fluffy, tan head. Aroma is banana, chocolate, clove, and malt. Full, creamy body. Tastes of banana, chocolate malt, and clove spice. Finishes smooth. Good brew and their best offering by far.

TimE (3366) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 25, 2005
Cloudy brownish orange color with a big banana nose with a hint of milk chocolate. Med-full body. Mouth chocolate, cloves, bananas in the mouth. Full chocolatey banana finish. Definetely their best beer.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Tap @ brewery. Hazy yellow-brown, big offwhite head. Served a little too cold, improved as it warned. Very prominent spicy-clove in the nose, leading into a standard weizen bock banana-clove flavor with some extra malts. Lactic; pine/cinnamon spice that goes together pretty well. Good, but I’d only drink one at a time. Best beer in the house.
