3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was surprised to see that I hadn’t sampled this beer when I saw it on the menu on my most recent trip to the Tastin Room. So I went ahead and consumed two large hefe glasses of this tasty beer. The beer poured a cloudy and muddy dark brown color. The head was light brown in color and featured some really nice, cascading and sticky lacing. The balance and flavor of this beer were tremoundous. I tasted a subtle hint of bubble gum, but got a ton of banana. I also noted quite a bit caramel malt, rye bread, yeast and some nice floral hops. This is definitely one of the best weizen bocks I’ve had in a long time, maybe ever.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap inside at yesterday’s goat races. Super cloudy brown, just loaded up with yeast (and what looks like trüb, though I doubt it), lacing beige head -- looks like I lucked out with one of the last pulls! Sweet yeasty nose with light banana and yeast products, taste is medium sweet with minimal bitterness and more of the same. Medium body. I’m surprised, didn’t think they were going to pull this off, but they did; this is as good as the best German examples.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bread and wheat aroma. Hazy brown. Creamy and very malty. Bread with a little bit of yeast. Falls short a little. Lacks the estery bite to really balance the malt. Still enjoyable just not exciting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Phoenixville. Poured brownish coppery with off-khaki head. Nose was malty, with cacao, banana, clovey limey spice, hops, mild vinous fruit. Tasted malty and spicy, with the banana, clove, and hops hitting at mid-palate, and a finishing earthy malty toffee flavor. Very complex, and this recipe dichotomy works surprisingly well
