3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a near infra-red amber sort of colored body that supports a nice dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up cherry nuanced banana, dates, a brown sugar note and then a bit of molasses. The taste is soft and sweet and fruity. I get raisins, cherries, dates, a dash of cinnamon and a blend of brown sugar, faint chocolate and molasses. Just below those notes lurk a few slices of sliced banana. This is pretty darn nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2015 Bottle at home. Aroma: Spicy, toasted wheat bread; light clove; light banana; a hint of orange peel. Appearance: A darker Weizen Bock from the Aventinus strain; pours with a dark, cola colored body with healthy carbonation. A foamy tan cap sit atop initially, and settles into a thick skin. Flavor: Clove and banana up front with more spicy, dark wheat character showing up afterwards; the finish is spicy and lingers on with a touch of tootsie roll chocolate. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: Another spot-on take from UC. I’d love to have this side by side with Aventinus.

bottle from strykzone in 4/6 locals trade. another weizenbock = another good beer. some banana, much malt in aroma; darker pour for style (I think). Good flavors - several things happening - it all pulls together well - easy to drink with substance and flavor!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a murky brown with a large tan head. Aroma is wheat, sugar, dark fruit and cloves. Flavor is a rich caramel malt with a bit of roasted nuts and some brown sugar. Finish leaves some fig on the tongue. This was a well done beer. Maybe missing some of the banana/clove thing but this was a very chewy malty beer with the flavors lingering after the swallow.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Urban Chestnut. Opaque mahogany pour with a khaki head. Cola, tart dark fruits, and big time dates. A lot of raisin and plum. Quite sweet on the palate, but also some tart dark fruits such as raisin and plum. A nice black cherry note, lots of caramel, cola, and chocolate. A little bit bitter on the finish. A little disappointing.
