Judging rom the name, somebody must have been fooled again. Shame on them. OTSA is the winner of our 4th Annual GABF Pro-AM Homebrew comp; a traditional German Weizenbock brewed with Pam Bradley from Austin, TX!

Marduk (2472) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2014
750ml bottle. Clear brown color. Tiny to almost no head. Malty and sweet aroma. Sweet, mint, malty, caramel, faint chocolate and candy in taste. Malty, spicy notes in aftertaste. Faint sense of alcohol. Sweet and sticky.

Not a good drink. The aroma made a promise that couldn’t be kept. This resembled a beer the same way Frankenstein’s monster resembled a man - it was a mishmash of ingredients that failed to cohere. 3 sips and down the sink.

JPDurden24 (1527) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Brown pour, nice frothy head. Lots of banana, cloves, and sugary sweetness, but doesn’t seem to blend well together overall. Its good, but missing something.

Brown pour at Fate. Light tannish colored head. Banana, cloves, yeasty, bread, wheat thins. Solid but not amazing.

dcschiller (2203) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2013
On draught for the Fate Ska tap takeover. Pours clear light mahogany with an eggshell head. Aroma is banana, coriander and biscuit. Taste is banana, malt, candied sugar. Medium bodied and sticky. Good, but a little sloppy compared to the Germans.

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear brown with a large, frothy and fizzy light tan head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is cooked and lightly caramelized bananas, faint nutty malt notes, toast and cookie malt with spicy hop notes and candi sugar. Flavor is heavy banana and sweet malt, spicy wheat notes with no hop flavor, light to no hop bitterness, and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. This is like liquid banana bread.

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pour on tap at the CO rare beer tasting 2012, dark reddish brown pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of banana, toffee, spicy esters, touch of earth, chocolate, hints of sweet fruit in there as well. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, some banana, spicy esters mixing into some fruit notes, finishing fairly sweet. Eh.

650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, over a clear red amber (SRM 17) body....nose is banana, bubblegum, brown sugar, treacle....taste is sweet banana/bubblegum, treacle, brown sugar, light clove....mouth feel medium, sticky, alcohol (? ABV) hidden, carbonation makes a creamy sweet foam. This is a very simple version of an elegant complex style. The best Weizen Bocks are redolent with layers of dried fruit, spice in both aroma and flavor. This is not. Additionally it is very, very sweet. This dominates the other characteristics. BJCP 7/3/11/4/5

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (caramel), with a very strong note of overripe banana, other notes of brown sugar, maple syrup, bubble gum, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Good grief...this is an absolute sugar bomb, in both nose and mouth. Unreal. I guess if you like drinking Karo syrup you might like this, but wow...this is painfully one-dimensional and almost impossible to drink.
