Our Weizenbock is comparable to the barley-based regular Bockbier, but is actually a stronger version of an unfiltered Weissbier. We use approximately 55% wheat malt (German law requires a Weizenbier, regardless of strength, be made from at least 50% wheat). The other 45% of malts are a combination of Munich, Pils, and Caramel. All of which when combined give our "Maifest special" a full-bodied and a rich, satisfying malty finish. Point of fact: while regular Bockbiers are lagers, Weizenbocks are ales. OG - 16.0 Plato.

Brown, delicious. Strong hints of black tea. Low ibus. Surprised by the alcohol content (7%)

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.

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.

crajun (1090) - , Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2015
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!!

thegreenrooster (3603) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2015
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.

On tap at the brewery during SRBG 2014. Comes a dark amber with a decent beige head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and spice. Taste is banana, caramel malt, spice, and wheat. Pretty good.

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.
