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.

Really good. Very nice aroma and a smooth malty taste with a smooth finish. Really delicous on a fall day

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, best by Aug 15, 2015. Sent for review by Victory. Yep, all these powerhouse ratings, and they still want a little pub. I’m well-disposed toward Victory, anyway. (This should satisfy requirements for Full Disclosure). Foams up a bit as I pour into a smaller wheat glass. Ocher color under a big puffy head. Smell has some carrot cake and even pumpkin pie spice to it, but only from yeast, so it would make a nice fall seasonal. Taste has big German malts, kilned to caramel texture and with plenty of banana and bubble gum weizen esters. Malts hold up the extra alcohol. A bit strong for a "main course" beer, but it would be welcome against an onslaught of holiday feasting.

"another solid brew from Victory. the aroma and flavor are both very pleasant and complex. fruity yeast and spices and wheat. the only thing lacking is the feel, which was a little highly carbonated at first, and a touch watery at the end. otherwise, they nail the style."

A style I will buy again, this weizenbock best buy is 8/2015 so a very fresh beer.some banana notes-like the mouthfeel.do pick on the higher ABV for this style.

taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber, good off-white head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is sticky sweet malt that has little competition, making for a beer that arrives at the finish with no change.and no balance. No noticeable hops, no carbonation, no recommendation

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours murky medium chestnut fine thinnish head, some thin lacing, lots of bubbles. Aroma wheat, banana, slight clove and Noble hops, slight toasty malt, slight caramel and toffee. Taste sweet caramel, spicy bitterness, banana, clove, rich malty flavor, clean wheat on the finish. Mouthfeel medium full body, high end of carbonation, slight alcohol warming, spicy hop and carbonic bite, finish is on the sweet side. Overall I think this is my first weizen bock, but it fits in the style deScription, except slightly higher alcohol, this is a tasty, rich, we?ll made beer, I?ll explore the style a little more based on this.

bottle (best by Aug 2015) into Weizen - nose is banana, cloves and caramel with slight black pepper. Sip adds bread, toffee, slight citrus peel. Chewy if not cloying. Sweet. Earthy finish. Would like to try a slightly aged version to see if the flavors are more distinct because they seem kind of muddled right now. Appropriate for the season, as always seeing as the days are getting darker and the nights colder. This will warm you up leaving a vestige of a fall potpourri aftertaste.
