thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Hazy chestnut body, medium light beige head. Aroma has sweet black fruit bread with banana/raisins and notes of dark caramel. Softish wheaty taste with overbaked bread crust and sweet caramel. Nutty finish with a soft burnt bread crust bitterness. Not too complex but still a lovely strong dark wheat beer. Good balance.

Brandman (2417) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Murky brown body, khaki head. Aroma has sweet malt, fruits - cant decide if its banana or not. Very malty flavour and finishes sweet. Nice, but nothing compared to good weizenbocks.

Sjohnh (442) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Lots to like here, but not everything. Cloudy brown with a frothy caramel surface. Good wheaty body. Aroma and early part,of taste are classic Weizen Bock - banana, clove, yada yada yada. Very nice though. Finish is a bit of a letdown though - bitter but a bit too yeasty and metallic.
