3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 16.9 fl oz bottle, $4 from BellaVino. Half-hazy faded yellow color. A very nice one-finger amount of persisting foamy white head. Really big body, pronounced, but smooth and fine carbonation. Spicy clove taste on a malty wheat base. Citrus peel. Kind of sour and acidity. After sampling a few weizenbocks from lesser-known breweries and really enjoying them, I’m disappointed by this offering from Weihenstephaner. Decent, but not nearly as drinkable or tasty as others I’ve tried. 6/5/5/3/12
Re-rate, 7/26/15: 11.2oz bottle from Dutch’s. Hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. No lace sticks. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp moderate carbonation. Sort of an abrupt texture. Mild dry finish. Nice big banana, mild spice, some nutty character. Moderate-plus sweet taste, lighter to moderate bitter. Unique, interesting weizenbock. Pretty solid and tasty. Not the benchmark for the style that I see the Hefe Weiss as being, though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, straw coloured with a thick, creamy white lid. Bags of citrus fruit, berries, banana and tiger balm interestingly. Hugely aromatic. Wow all come through on the palate, particularly and a hint of the tiger balm. Medium low carbonation and full bodied. Vibrant full or aroma and flavour. Love it!

Bottle- Pours a hazy golden color with a billowy head that slowly fades to nice lacing. Aroma of fruit, primarily banana, with spice some fresh grain and bit of citrus. Taste of banana, mild fruit, some sweetness and a nice subtle bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and creamy. very nice balance, not being overly sweet. Easy drinker, good example of the style. Well worth a try.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best examples of this style. Pours a hazy golden color with a prominent white foam head that retreats to the edges over time. Aromas are heavy banana, clove. More prominent than in a typical hef. Flavor again delivers with the banana and cloves but there is also a pleasant minerality working behind the scenes. Full on the palate with a nice creamy texture as it warms. Just an excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Heerlijk bier. Iets zoetig maar toch sprankelend fris. Jammer dat het aroma vooral zurig en gistachtig is. In de nasmaak blijft vooral het zuurtje over.
