3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This slightly hazy light golden brew has that classic german wheat beer quality build and appearance. The aroma is lightly sweet and spicy. The mouthfeel is quite smooth and buttery with lots of sweet spicy flavors from the malts, yeast and hops. Clean, bubblegum finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very much unfiltered. A head that reminds me of marshmallows. Nose is bananas and clove. Those are also dominant flavors with a bit of lemon, a mild dry bitterness light bubblegum, and soft fruit. It is more like a bigger hefe. This dangerously easy to drink and is quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light colored, frothy. Musty, clove, yeasty, slight alcohol on the nose. Quite fruity, almost a bit sour, slight spices and banana, although fruit is more dominant. This ones on the lighter, crisper, fruitier side of the weizenbocks i’ve had. Only detracters is their is a bit of a bland-salty aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle.
A - Slightly hazy golden color with a large, thick, creamy, soapy, sticky, white head. Pretty good retention with a sticky thin layer of lace. Extremely light color for the style.
S - A lot of wheat aroma with banana, clove, and some bubblegum. Touches of vanilla and pepper and some alcohol.
T - A lot of wheat flavor with some pale malt. A good amount of banana flavor along with plenty of clove and pepper. Some bubblegum and yeasty flavors as well. Some spicy hops later on as well. Some alcohol heat also comes out. Some tangy/tart wheat flavor also comes out a bit.
M - Medium body with plenty of carbonation. A bit of a smooth feel with just a touch of drying finish.
D - Easy to drink with a nice amount of flavor and a good body, but a little spicy and a bit too much alcohol heat to really be all that drinkable.
Notes: Definitely not like other weizenbocks that I have had, seems more like a bigger hefeweizen. Overall not a bad beer, but it wasn’t entirely balanced and not what I was expecting. Not a bad beer, but I was expecting a bit better given the track record of this brewery.
