Bottle into tulip glass, dirty orangy brown color with fluffy tan head. Aroma of wheat, caramel, banana, clove and citrus notes. Taste adds notes of fruity malt, bread, grainy, brown sugar and mild spices. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, dry with crisp light bitter finish. Nice hefty lager for the cooling months.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle that is probably out of date but given to me kindly by Toby. Cloudy dark brown colour. Lasting beige head. Oxidised aroma. Some sweet malts, not a huge amount of German flavour on this. Esters are minimal. Sweet malt and oxidisation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good weizen bock, medium amber with thin head. Heavy malt masks the wheat backbone of this. Lacks the head of a real German weizen, but mouthfeel and overall body are pretty good. Medium weight winter warmer.
