Pours cloudy gold with a big frothy head. Aroma-pear, banana, clove, lemon, bread. Taste-much like the aroma with pears being the most forward then cloves and sugar. Sweet, short and fruity finish. Really great.

Poured into a flute with a medium yellowy head. Aromas of malts and chocolate were prominent. The taste was yeasty at first and ended with malty aftertaste. I enjoyed it very much.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large fluffy white head. Nice big banana and wheat with a nice musky yeast note that shows up as it warms. Simple but clean. Medium bodied, light banana and wheat. Finishes with a bit of warming alcohol and a touch of banana.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big white head. Smells like banana and clove, and tastes as such. Some alcohol presence but overall great. A Weizenbock done right.

A nice clovey banana taste similar to other weihenstephaner products. Pretty cloudy appearance. Very carbonated (again like other weihenstephaner products) and a nice aroma and somewhat sweet taste. A good choice overrall

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1pt bottle poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy orange with ample creamy white head. Aroma is yeast, bubblegum, spice, banana. Flavor is bubblegum, banana, spice, bread. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Medium finish is slightly bitter. This is an odd weizen bock. The dominance of the bubblegum aroma/flavor is more reminiscent of big Belgian beers than a weizen bock. Not a bad beer, just not a great example of the style.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 Aroma is full of green fruit, including bananas, pears, and grapes. Notes of nutmeg and clove are also fairly strong. Tart wheat fills in the background. A hint of noble hops emerge as it reaches room temperature.
Appearance is hazy gold with a dense white head that persists to the end of the glass.
Flavor is bright and complex with Bavarian yeast esters up front, sweet malt and tart wheat interplaying in the middle, and alcohol warmth cutting through earthy yeast in the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden body, huge, towering head, with the bottle foam still coming out from the bottle even when it is half empty! The usual weizen aromas are there (banana, bubblegum, clover), but everything is overshadowed by a rather unpleasant warm, perfumy, alcoholic note reminding me of cheap strong lagers. Oily on the palate, medium bitterness in the finish. All in all, a disappointment from Weihenstephaner. Will probably re-rate.
