3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy dark sienna color with a dissipating, off-white head. Minimal spotty lacing noted. The aroma shows dark fruity notes, including fig and raison, accompanied by the requisite overly ripe banana scents. Caramel shows strong in the malt base, with a sweet, bready yeast, cloves and some peppery spice. The flavor is sweet and malty up front, with caramel and fermented dark fruit showing strong. Flavors transition into browned bananas and heavy clove spice. Sweet yeast is present throughout. What this brew lacks, in my opinion, the fullness that the wheat adds to the better examples of this style. The mouthfeel here is syrupy, with the alcohol quite detectable. Additional wheat would really help out the body, with more hop character serving to balance out the intense sweetness. Overall, this is a fairly enjoyable brew, but it is just too sweet and lacking in the component that really makes a Weizenbock sing for me....the wheat.

Acquired via trade from acrdz. THANKS MIKE!!! Oak Creek Canyon pour with red rock sediment (if you haven’t been to Sedona, might have a hard time picturing this one). Tear open a pack of Big League Chew, strip back a banana peel, and take a puff off of a menthol cigarette. This describes both the aroma and flavor. Not a favorite but glad I had a chance to try something from this brewery!!!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Murky dark brown-orange with a thin film of tan head. Alefruit, caramel, fruity/bubblegum ester aroma. Rich earthy sweet malts, sugary caramel and figgy, raisiny characters. Some herbal hop notes with subdued spicy and fruity yeast components. Residual sweetness in the finish, with a strange conglomeration of estery flavors. Mouthfeel is a rich medium.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very muddy dark amber with a tan head. Aroma of sugary malts, dark fruit, and banana esters. Medium bodied but with some slight thinness in the texture. Flavor of dark wheat malts and chocolate that transitions to a clove and spice middle, which mutes some of the sweetness. Finish is yeasty- probably a bit too much when you factor in the spiciness. Not too bad, but no where near an Aventinus.

Thanks to DIM For this one
Bottle poured unto my Weizen Glass produced a good amount of off white head that settles down to a good layer of lace. The body on this one is a murky brown
Aromas are typical for a Weisenbock Bananas and cloves along with malted wheat they hit the nose right on for the style
Flavors are right on the nose as well yeasty fruity goodness I really like this style especially during a nice warm day
Medium mouthfeel creamy as well
Great brew they hit the style well very drinkable and would drink again if I saw it around I’d recommend it for anyone who likes the style

Bottle courtesy of hopdog. Thanks!
This poured shades from light to dark reddish brown in a weizen glass with a lasting beige head. Smell is wheaty richness, yeasty and strongly of clove. Taste is dark sweet wheat, clove and other spices but incredibly sweet and malty. Wow, just a bit too cloying. Nice body and carbonation.
