Originally rated on 9/26/14. "Pours a murky orange amberish body with a foamy tan head that settles to a thin film on top of the beer. Ringed lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, bread, booze, caramel, banana, earth, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, banana, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer, heavy wheat beer with some belgian and almost barleywine like attributes.

Was skeptical about uploading review based on that this wasn’t fresh. Still, we’ll call this one an aged review.
This was poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving less than slim messy lacing.
The smell had a sweet dark fruits to gentle spice rolling into each other nicely.
Light sweet bready notes balance nicely.
The taste wraps together the spice with the breadiness, sweet yet gentle clove. There’s no aftertaste but it does have a slight gentle sticky sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation seemed okay for the style but may have died a bit too since it’s an old bottle.
Overall, for a weizenbock that came out last Autumn, I liked it now. I’m hoping to see it this coming Autumn as I’m sure it will be nice to sip on my deck overlooking a West setting Autumn sun.

Bottle in grand cayman. Nose is malt, raisin, and dark fruit. Pour is appropriate and clean. Medium thick body and unfiltered. Tart cherry note muted by malt and raisin feel. Bready but don't see much of the wheat it says.
