3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottel ( litle bit too warm when drank). white thick head. Citrus colored, foggy. Mead like appearance. Typical weisse aroma, maybe even richer and sweeter: bananas, apricots, yeast, chalk. Semi thick mouth feel. First thing noticed about flavour: I can’t believe this is 7.7%! Alcohol is well hidden. There’s also bananas in the flavor. Chalk continues too. Little bit richer than your average weisse, maybe that’s the bock part, other wise I don’t really notice any bock characteristics in this.

Bottled. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a short, creamy cap of white head. The aroms was just delightful.. toasted banana and spicy pepper on a warm impression upfront.. sweeter aged caramel malts holding it up behind.. balance was excellent! The flavor had warm caramel and banana notes at the core surrounded by black pepper, coriander, and tart citrusy notes.. warm again on the finish and entirely satisfying. Heavier-bodied with creamy carbonation on the palate.. alcohol was present, but well-balanced.. I’d gladly have another.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle and served in a weizen glass. This beer poured a cloudy golden orange with a decent sized head of soapy, off-white foam. A small amount of lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer included strong bananas, oranges, flaked wheat, and just a touch of fresh cut grass. The flavor was not quite as vibrant as the aroma. It consisted of spicy yeast, ripened bananas, slightly astringent orange peel, hay, and a bit of alcohol. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and had mild carbonation. Not the best example of the style, but still worth a shot considering the price and easy accessibility. Decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy yellow color with s thick white head. The aroma is very yeasty, there’s banana esters and bubble-gum, there’s also cloves and a soft candy sweetness. The flavor is very pleasant and balanced, there are bananas, bubble gum, cloves and sweetness reminiscent of soft fruity candies. After a while, I notice some hop presence and mild bitterness in the end. The body is medium to full with a creamy texture and medium to lively carbonation. This is a solid weizenbock, I’d say the best Weihenstephaner I’ve had so far.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 pours cloudy orange yellow with a fluffy white head. Banana clove and the dry plum bitter. Much more refreshing and light than other weizen bocks. Not nearly the strong plum flavors that you get from Schneidder Aventinus. Great mouth feel - creamy,full, and sparkling. Simple start and very nice spicey finish. Bana na flavors really come out as it warms. Very good

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Sampled poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The beer had a big foamy white head with great retention and decent cling atop a cloudy straw color with slight particles. The aroma was a mix of banana and some other fruits, with barley, and some yeast and grainy hop tones too. A sweet, somewhat fruity taste, with a touch of wheat and bitterness. Pretty wet beer on the palate, somewhat creamy and maybe slightly on the thin side, with good carbonation. A quality beer, not quite exceptional, but definitely enjoyed.

Only my second Weizenbock and what a superb brew. Very good banana nose with nice unfiltered appearence. The taste is outstanding and does taste like a hyper Hefeweizen. Would definately buy again.

Fresh beer. Hides the high amount of alcohol (for a Weizen) perfectly. Citrus/herb taste, really special. Very light colour. Had a 0.5l bottle in Rapallo, Italy at a nice grand café.
