xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2008
Aroma is a touch of cooked vegetable, lots of wheat, pepper, clove, and cinnamon. Taste is wheat, pepper, clove, cinnamon, rounding out well, creamy, dense. This is pretty tasty. Finishes smooth and a touch fizzy, but not so much that it is distracting. Very decent.

Bottle: Hazy brown amber pour with a smallish off-white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Light maltiness and bananas. Kind of has that Belgian spiciness up front. Pleasant flavor of wheat, citrus, clove, and Belgian spice. Smooth and crisp on the palate. Enjoyable.

12 oz bottle thanks to Dickinsonbeer. Hazy brown in color with a small off white head. Aroma- light banana esters, caramel, some wheat, spice, and somewhat bready. Taste is light banana with caramel/molasses, some tart wheat, brown sugar. Medium bodied. Finishes with spice (clove), lingering fruity esters (banana), some alcohol, and brown sugar.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Appearance: Pours a murky, dark amber body with a small, off-white head. Smell: Aroma of wheat malt with a candyish bent to it, hints of breadcrust, and the obligatory esters of banana and clove. Taste: Malted wheat with a slight tanginess and a moderate amount of sweetness. Full flavors of bananas and clove. Pinch of freshly-grated nutmeg. A relatively mild, spicy bitterness interrupts the taste for but a moment, then the flavors resume till the warming finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: That Tröegs. Every man needs a few awesome weizen bocks around and this one just may fit the bill.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 22, 2008
12 oz bottle via Jimbowood. This one pours a murky, brown/amber color. Light carbonation. Nose is bananas and spice. Flavor is spicy, fruity and smooth. Lots of banana and clove going on. Kind of reminds me of an abbey dubbel. Surprised by the relatively low ABV, because this one feels strong. Still, very good.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of The_Epeeist: Pours a hazy copper amber with a nicely-lacing froth of white head. Sweet caramel and bready German yeasty nose has a good clove presence and some banana esters. Body starts fairly full and rich with good malty wheat sweetness and nice balance of clove spice and light citrus before an authentic bready yeasty finish. A very nice weizenbock.

Pours a hazy copper color with a tan head. Aroma is wheaty, bubble gum, clove, and a hint of banana. Flavor is malty, caramel, wheaty, clove, banana, and a slightly alcoholic finish.

EithCubes (4887) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle. Bottle (#7-2008). Remarkably accurate Weizenbock nose, muddy yeast and caramel and toffee wheat notes, thick malt, light alcohol, touch of clove and banana....but this one has some dark, crispy cracker, as well. Pours a dirty dark brown on gradient with a fizzy light brown head that leans toward yellow. Taste is essentially the same as the aroma, with plenty of flavor muddling and a crisp feel, with some alcohol showing. Thick malty body. Light spritzes of citrus and a blend of nutmeg and all-spice. Not exactly something I’d like to drink all the time, but I do like the yeast they use for DreamWeaver and it’s suitable here.
