Bottle thanks to jtrockchalk on BA. Pour is very hazy, dark amber with a short lived off white head. Aroma of huge banana, tons of clove and other spice. Flavor is much of the same with clove, all-spice, less banana and very well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a lot of lingering sweetness. Overall the spice was a little much for me.

12 oz bottle shared by toncatcher. Dark hazy pour. Aromas of banana and hints of spice. Strong clove on the flavor. Yeast in there too. Pretty good. I like this style.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2008
12 oz bottle, gifted by acrdz. Pours a mostly clear amber body with a small fizzy beige head that fell to a wispy film. Nice husky and earthy wheat with a good amount of yeast character, some overripe bananas and light coffee. Maybe a touch of smoke? Pretty nice flavor, very earthy, almost tastes a little like it has a little rye. Lots of yeast, banana bread, and a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and fairly thick with soft gentle carbonation. Could be a little softer and creamier. Overall, a decent effort, but a long way from the German classics.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 31, 2008
12 oz. bottle - thanks to pepsican for the bonus bottle; pours dark, ruby brown with some minor floaties; head only around the edges; aromas of belgian candy, sugar and sweet malts; drinks smooth with considerable sweetness; a little light on flavor, but pretty enjoyable

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12oz that has been in the cellar for a while. Pours dark muddy bornw with a 1 finger tan head. Nose has underlining banana and way too much clove for me. Taste is slightly sweet with some fruitness and both a spiced character and a spicy one as well. All and all its an interesting beer, a style I enjoy but this doesn’t do it for me.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle thanks to hopdog. Dark amber pour with decent brown head. Clove was strong on the nose with some dried fruit. Flavor was spice, sweet and had a great mouthfeel. Nice little dry finish that had some hops to contrast the sweetness of the malt.

LinusStick (2855) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Awesome weizen bock. Aroma was nice. Banana, clove and light fruit. Pour was a perfect hazy dark brown/burnt orange with a one finger head and impossible to see through. Taste was great. Tangy clove and spices with a yeasty bite and a bittersweet hoppy/light fruit aftertaste. Love the style and this was a great one.

Bottle courtesy of TomDecapolis. Pours a murky brownish red color with a thin offwhite head. The aroma is pretty much what I expect from the style, fruity esters, candy sweetness and bubble-gummy yeast. The flavor is also smack dab within style parameters, there’s a nice sweetness with fruity esters and bubble-gum, some wheat presence too. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. This is nicely done.

Ibrew2or3 (6910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Courtesy of Gillard. Pours hazy brown-ish orange with off white head. The aroma is wheat mixed with sugar, malt sweetness, light dark fruity esters and more wheat. The taste is sweet with healthy amounts of wheat and tartness that builds up into the finish. The fruit, wheat and otherly tartness all don’t really come together all that well for me but it is an enjoyable product.

[Bottle, thanks tytoanderso!] Pours hazy reddish-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is a very nice balance of yeast, banana, clove and bubble gum. Taste is somewhat sweet up front with a lot of banana and clove. Average mouthfeel with a long finish. A very solid weizen bock.
