3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle - served at the Bayou in SLC - pours a somewhat hazy straw yellow color with small to medium sized pure white head. Aroma has notes of clove, honey, chewy malts, touches of prickly pear cactus fruit, summer rain, lavender, and wet stone. Flavor has lightly chewy malts, with notes of lemon zest and coriander, very faint hint of clove. Finish is just on the sweet side. This is pretty good overall, but in my mind seems more like an imperial hefeweizen rather than a weizenbock. This is a very pale beer, and I think of weizenbocks as fairly dark (like a bock, but brewed with wheat and wheat yeast). I know that some weizenbocks are pale, it’s just not what I think of in regards to the style (Aventinus is my go-to weizenbock). However, this is still very good. I really like the aroma and fermentation notes, but I think it is missing the caramel and slightly toasty notes that are present in what are benchmarks of this style in my mind.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at craft Clerko. It pours murky brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, spice, cloves, brown sugar, bruised banana and aniseed. The taste is toasty, earth, bruised banana, light spice, touch of alcohol, caramel, faint aniseed with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Not bad. For a weizenbock.

Apple ciderish in looks you can just barely make out your fingers on the far side of the glass. Smells like banana. Taste like a spiced creamy banana with a mealy mouth-feel. Not my favorite style but i still enjoyed it.

A damn fine beer! Quaffable, flavorful and a great body. A delectable clove/banana nose. Malted spices rolling to bananas flambeau that finishes with a dance of biscuit and toasted sugar.

Basically a hefe on overload-bubble gum, clove, banana-with some dark malt backbone. Really nice.

Well executed version of the style. Nice and malty, beautiful foamy weizen head, deep malt/grain character, smooth yet potent. Yummy!
