Sweet and syrupy with noticeable alcohol presence. Not my style preference but can appreciate the victory craftsmanship that went into this.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dust-tan-colored head, medium-fine, fast to fade to splotchy film. Hazy-to-cloudy amber orange. Aroma is clove, lemongrass, bit of toffee and hint of banana. Body is medium, slightly syrupy/oily, with a soft, fuzzy carbonation. Flavor is clove, wheaty spice, a bit boozy (surprisingly). Surprisingly yummy. This is reawakening a desire for other beers in this style. A job well done. No flaws to speak of.

Bottle from ABC. Pours a super dark amber with a very large, frothy head. Smells of fruit are immediate, banana being the most apparent; maybe some darker fruits as well. Lacing is wonderful and almost layered after every sip. Flavor is mostly sweet throughout, medium bodied and a little dry on the finish. Acquire.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best by August 19, 2015.
Appearance: Monstrously huge tan head with a hazy ruddy copper color.
Aroma: Oh wonderful aroma with banana being the most prominent aroma, very bready like banana bread actually. Hints of chocolate, chalky yeast, clove and hints of dark fruit. Boy this is complex and beautiful.
Taste: Dark fruits reminiscent of cherry and fig are light but throughout, rather mild flavor compared to the aroma though. Some bits of banana and light clove on the finish. Bready rye like finish. A bit thin, a dash watery, but enjoyable and balanced.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: What a wonderful beer at a very agreeable price. This is my favorite weizenbock and I’m glad they brought it back!
