Draught@Julians, Providence, RI. Not a huge fan of weizenbocks at the moment, this is a pale one too. Estery banana, and alcohol notes. Raw alcohol, and some touches of caramel.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, citrus and yeast spiciness. The flavour is banana bread, citrus and spice. Superbly balanced, it’s medium bodied and good carbonation. A refreshing, enjoyable bock.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Whitish golden. Strong haze. Medium-sized white head. Spicy aroma with cloves and a little banana. Rich malty aroma with some caramel. High carbonation level. Hints of smoke. Very nice weissbier flavours, but there is a lot more body and a lot more flavour. Very rich. One must love wheat to like this beer, but I find it nicely balanced and flavourful. It leans towards being a little too sweet though. Could perhaps used a little more hops to make it less cloying. Overall a really nice weizenbock.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint bottle from Sams. Pours a hazed orange yellow with a huge off white head. Strong yeast/lemon/wheat/banana aromas that are sweet with a slight earthiness in the background. Creamy body and highly carbonated. More of the banana yeast wheat flavors with somewhat dirty earthy and spicy finish. Decent weizenbock..

Great head, aroma and appearance. Perhaps a touch sweet, but great body and mouth feel. A very light Weizenbock, but it is excellent.

Bottle at tasting at work. Alround rating: The wheat is quite big and in your face, sweeter honey alcohol character(what i expect from a mead, pepperyness in the finish. Big for the sake of being big it seems, the hefe is the superiour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Spicy nose, cloves, baking spices, banana bread. Almost ripe peach enters with the malt balanced by wheat tang. A hefe on growth hormones. Not that it feels manipulated in a nefarious way. The "bock," part here means a loss of body and turbidity that adds a very Champagne like structure and roundness. Tasty. Drinkable. 89

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bomber sized bottle, pictured here. Aroma is refreshing and volatile at the same time. Slightly lighter than other hazy weizen bocks I’ve had. First taste indicates lots of sparkling carbonation, welcomed for a high alky beer. Plenty of hefe here, banana, spices and the like. All laced with a wealthy amount of alky content. Finish is just a tad medicinal in the alky department. One of the lighter weizen bocks I’ve had as far as personality goes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 detractions is their is a bit of a bland-salty aftertaste.
