Cloudy dark brown color. Jine doesn?t lie. This a good weizenbock. Alcohol is very evident. Sweet and delicious. Slightly acidic. Not an Aventinus, but another good beer from Victory. Beautiful bottle as well.

nice orange amber color, thick carbonated head. Fairly hoppy throughout, awesome sweet spicy taste and thick wheaty malts. I’d say, an excellent Weizen Bock.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright, cloudy reddish-amber. Good carbonation. Large light tan head. Aroma of banana, biscuit, caramel, & vanilla w/ some light peppery notes. Light, mildly acidic feel. Fruity flavour of banana & apple w/ soft, rounded malt (biscuit, caramel, toffee) in the background. Finish is long & warm w/ peppery notes.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark red pour. Good faomy/lace head. Nice spicy aroma, sugar-cinnamin. I like bocks and this just gets better as I drink more. There is plenty of alcohol and I like this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This brew pours a hazy orange/copper with a white head that leaves moderate lacing on the glass. Lots of wheat and spice in the aroma, fruity with a light floral hopping, and a faint banana smell. This brew has a very amazing well-rounded taste with a nice wheaty/yeasty start and a faint sweetness. This brew finishes with a crisp spicy balanced finish, slightly fruity, with just a faint bitterness to balance out the taste. Very smooth for a 8.7% weizen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a cloudy caramel, medium off-white pancake batter like head, subtle carbonation, with fairly attractive lacing.   Banana & cloves on the nose.   Tiz also rather bready with its wheat malts.   Quite bready and wheaty on the tongue, with spices and a touch of alcohol.   Fairly tasty, almost like a slimmed down version of Schneiders.   Medium body & mouthfeel.   Finishes with more alcohol than I prefer, but with a nice spiced bready flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured ruby and cloudy with a thin tan head...smelled fruity and alcohol...pears and oranges and allspice...thin mouthfeel...tasted melons and molasses and caramel...quick alcohol finish...surprised by 8.7%...wouldn’t have guessed it that high due to its drinkability...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Hazy ruby/light brown color with a very small white head that diminishes to the outside of the glass, then quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet, filled with bananas, banana peel, peach, clove, apple, wheat and yeast. Initially this beer tastes good, but not like anything special. Though the more I drink, the more I am impressed. Flavor has lots of ripe banana, peach, wheat, slightly spicey yeast, cinnamon sugar, orange, with just a bit of bitterness and lemon somewhere. Finishes surprisingly crisp and dry, with a clean mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big aroma, big ABV, BIG flavor, Big score. This beer has a shockingly full and rich flavor, laden with fruits and the familiar taste of a Victory brew. A pleasure from start to finish.
