At a tasting, thanks, small creamy stable head, cloudy pale rusty red color, woody aroma with some candy, nuts and paper, flavor of apricot with bubblegum and some metalic notes. quite simple and not too interesting.

This hazy, caramel liquid comes pouring out of the bottle and apparently does not like the way I am pouring. A huge head ensues, and it is ridiculous to think that I might get any beer out of this. I adjust, the brew is happy, I get beer. The head is amazing.
An overwhelming fragrance of spiced bananas out of the neck as I pour, a very fruit/hay presence. It’s almost like eating granola with yogurt and a handful of a syrupy fruit. Quite pleasant and exciting for my olfactory senses! Love the aroma.
The head is still amazing.
The taste is confusing, sour on the back-end and doughy-sweet on the front, but isn’t that about right for this style? Dry and lingering on the sides of my tongue, it doesn’t leave any real flavor or taste that might throw off the next bottle, but it has so much personality of it’s own that you’d think that was just a ruse. That finish is almost perfect, but does leave that lingering yeast and reminds that this is a wheat beer and those don’t ’just go away’.
A good brew, a comfortable drinker, and an enjoyable experience. If I was a big bock drinker, this actually be listed on my go-to list for a cool refreshing accent to a hot summer evening.
By the way. I’m finished with the beer and the head is still amazing.

12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a hazy medium brown with a huge fluffy white head that nearly flows out of the glass. Head retention is out of this world.
Aroma has loads of bubblegum along with coriander. Lots of yeasty spiciness. Maybe just a touch of grass.
Lots of spice in the flavor that really jumps out. There is a touch of caramel that I didn’t pick up in the aroma along with some additional malt character. Some grape juice and just a hint of noble hops. Mouthfeel is just a touch on the thin side but alcohol is well hidden.
Overall, a very good weizenbock and one I thoroughly enjoyed, despite not being a huge fan of the style. I would definitely get this one again.

Poured a darker amber color with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty and sweet with banana and yeast. Some toffee and caramel too. Taste has lots of grains with raisins and dark fruit. Good malty flavors. Taste transitions into a darker fruity aftertaste with some caramel and dates. Somewhat spicy with cloves and earthy. Tasty!

From bottles and Cans. Lovely stuff. All the Hefeweizen qualities just more so but avoids being syrupy. Serving: Bottle

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

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.
