3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma of banana, yeast and wheat. The flavour is banana, yeast, wheat and malt with notes of alcohol. Nice and refreshing brew, but not as good as Hefe Weissbier from the same brewery.

Banana, cloves, wheat, sweetness, tang, yup. All of that. Great example of a weizenbock. Hefeweizen plus alcohol with a bit of a kick. A very nice beer, and quite refreshing.

Huge head when poured. The beer has a spicy lemon yeast flavor and is a full-bodied beverage.

found this strange cult following assembled in from of the local beer store waiting for this mysterious brew to appear so I had to try it.
Bottle poured into the proper Weihenstephaner glass produced a finger worth of white head that seems to last. The body of the brew was a hazy straw color yellow.
Aromas of the typical German Weizen yeast are going threw my head Bananas, bubble gum and clove. The flavors are the same but with a touch of pepper in there as well as a slight hop bitter. There is a medium to full feel in my mouth with this brew with ample carbonation.
A great Weizenbock another brew I am sure I will be seeing again this summer. Extremely easy to drink and the almost 8% alcohol is nowhere to be found.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5 liter, bottle. Hazy golden color, pours with a massive white head. Flavors of cloves, bananas, lemon grass, dough. I catch hints of Belgian style triples in this beer - might be the high alcohol content? Regardless, this is a great brew and for $2.99 locally, I’m loving it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2009 500ml bottle. Doughy, spicy yeast greets the nose, with generous amounts of clove and banana, as well as floral sweetness, licorice, lemon, golden raisin, bready, honeyish malts and wheat. Hazed golden color with a lasting, uneven, off-white head. Flavor is mildly tart, sweet and spicy, with a strongly malty presence throughout, the yeast making itself known as well in large degree, and touches of peppery bitterness and banana at the end to wrap it all up. Effervescence is mild but plentiful on the smooth palate, body is medium-full. Enjoyable, nicely balanced and full of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dull hazy yellow / gold with a large dense snow white head. The aroma has lots of fresh esters, cream, ton of wheat, peppery kick and some vanilla. The body starts medium / full and smooth then there is a lot of semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with the traits from the aroma with a touch of sweetness and more spice. The finish gets drier and peppery and is fairly crisp. Another great beer from an amazingly solid brewery.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to rustychiles for picking me up a bottle of this. Pours a super-hazy pils yellow with a humongous whipped-cream consistency head. Aroma is of wheat, lager, malty munich, and some minor banana. Taste is pretty much in the same place - a very clean and refreshing wheat and munich taste with extremely minor banana undertones. Weihenstephan never ceases to amaze me. A very solid beer.
