Bomber from TheEpeeist after two years of waiting for them to produce their Matador (still listed with no ratings). Nose is banana, wheat bread yeast, with a hint of vanilla toffee and cloves. Murky amber with a medium, lightly lacing, beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter, sweet bananas, and very spicy and peppery. Nice weizenbock!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, slowly collapsing ivory head, with layered lacing, over a clear, effervescent, dark amber (SRM 14) body......nose is wheat, toffee/caramel. light dried fruits including plum, raisin, no hops, mild banana/bubblegum, balance to the malts....taste is moderately sweet, with light brown sugar tones, toffee/caramel, mild wheat, light banana/bubblegum, vanilla, finishing with a moderate burnt caramel bitterness, with hints of hops......mouth feel, light of medium body, slight alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a pleasant, easy drinking beer, but it is not nearly as complex, nor rich, as the best of the style. The malt backbone needs a bit of a re-work, and a yeast change would also be helpful. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

I expected a lot more out of this beer and just didn’t get all that much. Some malt and not much else. It’s ok, decent, but no show stopper for sure. Meh.
