3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprisingly clear mahogany pour covered by a lasting off-white sheet of regular tiny beige bubbles. Spicy, slightly green, minty, peppery, clovey, parsley touched nose that becomes more phenolic as it warms, but was actually quite fruity and banana laden when cooler. Quite easy drinking despite the vigorous carbonation which does not quite overtake the creamy, banana puree and bready impressions that develop on the palate. Alcohol remains a moderate presence all throughout, as it should for a sub 7% weizenbock. Toasty, fruity middle. Closes with herbaceous hops meddling with pleasant smokey phénols. Nice and different. I like the evolution as it warms and opens up and the subtle spice rack phenolic impression in the nose that leaves more room to maltiness in mouth. And this maltiness comes with no tiring sugar presence.

Bavarian Weizenbock with greyish, light beige, equal, creamy head, stable; very dark chestnut brown colour with rusty hue, misty. Gentle but complex aroma, lots of coffee- and especially chocolate-like dark malts, hazelnuts, dried plums, cinnamon, flowers, wheat, banana, orange. Sweet malty taste, caramelly and chocolatey, fluffy and mellow mouthfeel, light wheat sourishness, some citrus, light toasted accent in the middle, subtle aromatic hops and warming, but not astringent alcohol, though the soft maltiness stays dominant. Very tasty.

Une brune qui ne s’embarrasse pas d’une mousse. Fortement herbacé au nez, mentholé par dessus ça, avec des effluves de blé et de miel et de raisins secs. Un goût qui pourrait paraître simple, mais c’est tout le contraire. Du blé, des herbes, du malt, du houblon qui, bien expliqués, un à la suite de l’autre, ensemble, ils déjouent la première impression. Surprenant. M.A. 15-08-14 (1134-010714)

Bottle. Moderate roasted cereal for the malt, cooked orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with dried fruit and a mix of baking spices in the background. Head is average size, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is medium, slickwith a lively carbonation. Probably the most complex Weizen Bock I’ve had since being in Germany.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-30-2012 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a huge very fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, copper transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, wheat, sweet, and dark fruits. The flavor is caramel malt, sweet, dark fruits, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable with the maltiness upfront in the aroma and flavor. This beer is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Bottle from McTapps, thanks Sabine. Dark brown with an amber hue. Aroma is raisin and a bit of year. Flavour is strong fruit, brown sugar, harsh base, kinda syrupy. Sticky finish.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hefig fruchtig, bananig, würzig. Geschmack stark hefig fruchtig, minimale Würze.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit of a gusher. Pours a very dark brown with orange highlights and a light tan head. The smell is mild clove, yeast, bread/wheat, banana. The taste is big on the banana, then some spiciness, clove, yeast ending fruity and dry. The body is medium and a bit creamy with active carbonation. Pretty nice beer though quite malty and fruity & sweet.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, brownish, nice head. Starts strong-malty, intense yeasty, almost a bit too intense yeasty. Modest sourish, some fruity hints of apricot. Finish could be more balanced. Okay, not more.
