3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 Very nice yeasty aroma of banana and hay, pours pale cloudy yellow. High carbonation, brings a very nice medium-full body to the tongue, creamy, almost sticky texture, touch of bitterness in the finish. Spicy, possibly from hops, alcohol present on the palate, leads to a bit of warming.

Much much lighter colored than expected... golden hazy big head fluffy... tons of spicy banana aroma... odd malty flavor up front, somewhat thinner than expected, lively at the end, but not all the way through... good flavor esp in the finish, spicy, not as much banana as expected... medium bodied...

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a two-finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Light hazy amber color, yeast left in bottom of bottle. Medium bodied and strong carbonation. Nose is a spicy yeast. Flavor is sweet spices, lemon and yeast. The best weizen bock Iíve had (at least 10), it beats Schneider Aventinus. $3.25 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

Bottle at Monks Kettle. Pours dark golden with a beartiful white head, correctly rolled and poured by the barkeep. There is a nice wheat aroma that is fruity and fragrant. The flavor is typical of a wheat beer, fruity with some banana ester, but it is heartier than most, with a slightly sour finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a large, fluffy white head. Sweet wheat-beer aroma, with a good amount of banana and cloves. Flavor is somewhat sweet wheat malt, with quite a bit of the sweet banana, and a bit of spice and citrus. Overall, feels more like a strong hefeweizen than what I expect a weizenbock to be. But as a strong hefeweizen, itís quite good.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perfect orange pour into my weihenstephan glass. Hazy orange with a pillowy white head. Nose is spicy wheat, yeast and clove. Banana is mild. flavor is similar to a bigger version of their weiss. Lots of wheat, pilsner and doughyness. Finish is soft and dry. exceedingly drinkable for 7.7% and so far the best light weizenbock Iíve had. Wonderful!

Well, this is delicious. I am sharing a bottle of this with my beer buddy beerbaron617 and we both thought it was pretty damn good. Pours a beautiful golden opaque yellow, with a huge fluffy white head. An abundant aroma filled with, of course, wheat, yeast, banana, clove, and even a hint of the citrus. Itís got a medium mouthfeel with a light syrup sensation. Just the right amount of carbonation, and it makes my mouth feel really juicy. Great flavor, great nose, gear mouthfeel, probably the best wheat style Iíve had in a while.

First off.. Iím not the biggest wheat beer fan in the world, however, this is the best wheat beer I have ever had, thus far. It tastes like banana bread, with all the yeasty, bready, sweet bits that make up a quality wheat beer. Yummmm!
Just do yourself a favor and get some. Cheers!

500 ml. Pours a lemony color with super-fluff head. Could pass for an ordinary hefe. Kind of low on the carbonation, and the body is very creamy. Some banana and clove and sunny fruit. A slight hint of the high AV, but still good for warm weather. Mostly just a souped up hefeweizen, but thatís enough for me.
