3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First bottle of the night for #bottlecherwednesdays at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. 750ml poured into tulip. Liquid is reddish brown with some cloudiness, a tall tan head forms than fades slowly to a film. Streaks of lace are left behind. Aroma is caramel, banana, clove, and spice cake. Taste is medium-high sweet with caramel and fruity esters. A small amount of spicy bitterness comes on the swallow. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish with lingering sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown pour with ample head and lacing. Big aroma of banana, clove, plum, and other spice. Body is bigger than usual with a little booze showing (it’s one fault). Flavor is big too...similar to the aroma and just a bit heavier than is typical for the style. Cool to compare to Deschutes, who also just brewed a big Weizenbock. They get the nod, but this was damn good too

Pours a dark amber color with a banana aroma. Taste is of baked banana bread with a clean hops film left on the tongue. A minor spice and cloves flavor that gave in to the banana taste. I could not taste any sweet flavor but was pleasantly delighted with its mixture of flavor.

The taste is sweet, brown bread, clove rock, over-ripe banana, toasty,candied stuff, varnish and warming alcohol. Boozy finish. Medium+body and fine carbonation. Not much depth to it. So-so.
