COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Wheat Doppelbock - This Maifest special is sweet, soothing, and a deceptive delight. So much so that it may deceive thy sight. Should you start to see visions of Elf King fame, heed the warnings from where this beer gets its name. Spelled out clearly in the Goethe poem...Hold on tight to a loved one and head for home.

Tap tap house. Cloudy grey yellow, offwhite foam. Lime aroma, peach Melba. Sweet fruity base, fermented pears, apples, orange peel, banana - cleaner than many other pale wheatbocks. Mellow full body. Ultimately quite pleasant to drink.

JorisPPattyn (9475) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
Draught Good stable head over hazy UFO-laden yellow-ochre beer. Rosewater, grapey hops, bit of spice. Again USA hops determinating the Weizenbock. Still, some banana and pineapple. Light(er) bodied for a Weizenbock, bit drier aftertaste, quite slick. Strange;.. more a USA wheat ale to me.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy light straw color with a foamy head that fades. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana, clove with bit of fruit and spice in the background. Taste of wheat,yeast,bit of yeast and light fruit with bit of malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a refreshing feel. Not hint of the 8.3% ABV. Enjoyable beer for a local brewer.

DiarmaidBHK (4196) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2015
Draft at Bailey’s Range. Pours yellow and cloudy with a white head. Doesn’t leave any lacing. Floral hop notes on the nose that have a bit of perfume to them. Nice floral essence on the tongue. Finishes clean. I’m not sure if it’s a doppleback but whatever it is it’s nice.

TH28 (379) - - APR 11, 2015
16oz bottle. No code date. Appearance: pale golden and cloudy with moderate white foam cap. Aroma: Heavy clove notes, but less banana than typical weizen yeast. Taste: Rich maltiness with clove spice and soft breadiness. Yeast flavor a bit subdued, and a slight medicinal bite on the back end. Mouthfeel: Light to moderate body for style, with moderate-high carbonation. Finish: Bready with clove spice on the finish. A bit of harsh alcohol. Overall: An average weizenbock. A bit harsh on the finish doesn’t leave it as clean as Aventinus or Vitus, but there are worse examples.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2015
The beer pours a hazy golden color (due to the yeast) with a large white head that fades somewhat slowly. The aroma blends wheat, white pepper, and hints of banana, and the taste is slightly sweet, mildly umami, and a touch sour with an aftertaste that is full of wheat with banana and boozy undercurrents lingering. The palate has a slick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation.

On tap at the shaved duck in STL. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Full bodied. Wheaty some yeast. Really nice beer. Slightly sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
