On tap at World of Beer Gainesville. Murky dark yellow pour, ugly. Aroma is sweet banana esters, brown sugar, sweet sweet sweet. Flavor follows this closely, plus body, not bad. Overall just not quite right for me in the style, as the sweetness is just too much. But not awful.

My only real concern with this incredible USA-made weizenbock is that its not so cloudy, even though the bottle info indicates "unfiltered". Regardless, I think this would be nearly indistinguishable from Aventinus in blindfold taste test (Schneider’s has a bit more raisiny-ness I think). Excellent!

12oz bottle shared. Poured a murky dark amber/orange color with nice big off white head. The aroma is big wheat and spices. Very pleasant to the nose. The flavor is more of the same. Plenty of wheat and malt followed by spices and fruit. Crisp and clean with a tang reall like this beer.

Hazy red-brown pour. Nose of faint banana and apple with clove and toasted malt. Flavor is mildly sweet and fruity with apple, pear, and toasted malt. Mild plastic hops in the finish. Relatively dry and well carbed. Pretty nice.

Awesome brew. Four pack from ABC Lake Wales. Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruity, some light spice, bubblegum. Flavors are very similar. Tons of Belgian character and a great citrus and dark fruit flavor. Awesome stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drought. Hazy copper red with very small foamy white head, doughy aroma, low carbonation, flat taste, abrupt finish with alcohol aftertaste. The final product feels neither like weizen nor bock.
