2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2015 Tap: Muddled, swampy brown body with a khaki layer of foam that rests more as a thin film atop the brew. Aroma includes slight cocoa dust, banana esters, soft wheat, bubblegum, & a little hint of dark fruitiness in the back end. The flavor is filled with wheat, hefe yeast, bubblegum, mild cocoa, banana taffy, some earthy & dirty esters, a bit of perfume, mild prune, & a touch of medicinal notes in the finish. Aside from the somewhat strange medicinal finish, it’s a very nice weizen bock, kind of like a chocolate-y hefe.
Update: Had this recently out of the bottle. Not at all what I remember. Heavily vinous. Lots of musty grape skins, oak, & cotton. Grape juice flavor without the warmth of wine. Raisin, wood, tannins, strange medicinal finish. Not so great.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a slight reddish tint. Very little head. Aromas are plums, figs, bananas, chocolate and grape juice. Taste sugary sweet. Big grape juice and banana, some dark fruit and finish with lingering chocolate syrup. Very little carb. Medium body. Decent but needs some tweaks.

Tap: very deep brown and okay head. Nice dark fruit and banana along with Clove like spice. Dark smooth wheat husk and some caramel notes. Biting alcohol and chalky finish, could stand a tad more body. Overall solid brew and to style.
