3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled. Pours a hazy golden with a nice fluffy off-white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, clove, and some spiceyness. Flavor was medium to full bodied and smooth with wheat, fruits, malt, banana, and a hint of smoke. A decent brew

Looks nice. Cloudy yellow. Very strong banana flavor, but in such a way that it isntí too bad. Not bad, and certainly doesnít seem that strong.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bright gold hazy body with a large, bright white head. The aroma is clove and bubblegum (what others call banana, but I find it more appropriate for this one). There is also old leather or almost cellar type quality and it makes the beer seem very earthy. The taste has some light bananas and subtle cloves. There is also some strong spice character of cinnamon. There is a little bit of caramel that comes out as this warms. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. Nicely done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy gold. Awfully light colored for a weizenbock. Aroma is DELICIOUS! Light banana, soft caramel, apple skins, spice, light grains, yeast and bubblegum. Taste is big bubblegum and wheat with yeast notes, candyish banana, and light lemon. Body is bubbly and effervescent. Medium to light-medium overall feel. Finishes with more bubblegum and banana, light caramel, wheat, yeast, spices and candy. Very nice despite its deceiving color.

[bottle] Really nice aroma-- apple, pear, clove and yeast. Some slight banana. Golden yellow color, hazy, with a very nice dense white head. Impressive. Wheat character composes most of the flavors, with some additional fruity complexity and spice. Finishes a bit tart, with some nice lively carbonation.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 Pours a creamy, tawny yellow color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Superb hangtime reducing slowly to a fine silky canopy. Strong aromas of meaty banana cream pie, lemony citrus, and spice. Very nice indeed! Medium full nectar w/ luscious, creamy residual effers. Thick and malty w/ strong flavors of creamy bananas, fresh lemons, and spicey cloves. Theres a fruity, tropical character that shines through w/ nuances of pineapple, kiwi, and wild apple. The malts are thick but the tropical acids cut through and balance perfectly. The finish long and tastey w/ lingering fruity spice. Highly recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 (Bottled) Hazy yellow (opaque yellow-orange with yeast) with a medium, cloudy head and some lacing. Very strongly banana-estery, wheaty aroma with some Belgian Tripel-like, yeasty alcohol. Very banana-fruity, sweetish-malty, wheaty flavor with yeast, low bitterness and well-hidden alcohol. Yeast makes the flavor quite a bit smoother. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate. Slightly alcoholic without yeast - yet decently refreshing, in a sahti-like way. A drinkable and pleasant, although not that complex Weizenbock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, Vastarannan Kiiski, Helsinki). Initially I as surprised this was a heller weizen bock and not a dunkles. Looks like a hefe, pale yellow haziness. Nose has raw banana, yeasty dough and some waxiness. Flavor has a lot of wheat, yeast, alcohol, white chocolate, toffee, small bitterness which is a bit acidic somehow. There is some turn off here, but I canít quite figure out what it is. Stearin or paraffin..?

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint size bottle purchased at South Bay Drugs. Appeared as a glowing yellow with a fat pillow of foam up top. The aroma was a delighting fruit essence that had Germany signature yeast all over this weizen bock. In the flavor, I find a perfect match to the aroma but even more chewy and spicy with just the right hint of banana. This weizen is perfect in aspect and Iím in bliss drinking it.
