UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 Pours light straw/orange yellow with a large foamy white head. Aroma of bacon, sweet malted wheat, clove, and citrus. Sweet and sour wheat, soft banana, slightly metallic. Fluffy mouthful with soft but sparkling carbonation. A nice drinking light weizen bock.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Järnet Bar, Stockholm. Pours out in an almost opaque dark yellow colour with a rich sticky white foam. Surprisingly fresh citric aroma with dense undertones of cloves, banana and vanilla. medium to full-bodied with strong spicy and dryish notes of cloves and all-spice with sweet undertones of banana and Seville oranges. Long spicy and rather dry finish of oranges, green bananas and cloves. Not my typical dark and hearty weizenbock, more like an Imperial Weizen.

Smells go colves, bananas, and bubblegum. Gloden in color and hazy with a big foamy head. Taste stays with you for a while. Some alcohol is appearant.

Pours a very hazy straw yellow with nice sticky white head. Banana, spice, light fruit, lemon vest, clove, and sweet bread. Definitely a wheat, pretty good mouth feel. Very enjoyable brew from a good brewery.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a weizen bock before, wasn’t sure what to expect. Its light yellow and cloudy, thick head. Got a banans and clove thing going on, basically tastes like a big heffe. Has a slightly sour, dry finish. Heffes aren’t really my thing, but I can drink it and appreciate it. Really very little hint of alcohol, I wouldn’t have guessed this was a big beer.

Pour is bright golden yellow with a slight haze and a smallish tight bubbled soapy bright white head...smell is very light and fruity with lots of sweetness and tons of bubblegum...some floral notes and definitely light yeast and banana...so far, very uncharacteristic for a weizen bock...the mouth feel is slight with moderate carbonation and very thin...light citric sweetness and some smooth grassy flavors...very unimpressive thus far...finish is lightly tart and somehow dry...the interesting thing is that it does taste far from alcoholic, which is the only interesting thing...

Medium bodied and surprisingly, slightly sticy to drink in a positive way. More bodied than normal weizen and otherway also refreshning, a high-quality beer.
