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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a huge, rocky-meringue, lasting white head with a hazy, golden body. Unexpectedly light color. Some very light yeast clouds dancing around. Excellent, clumpy lacing that could be spooned out. Heavy malt aroma of bread, grain, cereal and doughy yeast. Big yeasty, phenolic spice aromas - mainly clove and a touch of coriander. Lower levels of fruity esters, which I like. Very light banana with a bit of pear. Medium-full body with a creamy texture and a bit of pleasantly warming alcohol. Average carbonation with a very lightly bitter finish...just enough to balance the sweetness. Overall an awesome beer. I’ll be buying some more of this.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Banana and lemon bouquet, not very strong. Dingy yellow color, with a huge white head. Very noticeable alcohol, stinging mouthfeel. Similar to a carbonated lemondrop (lemon juice and vodka), but with cloves. Wheat grass finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy golden weizen bock with a super thick and creamy white head. A nice and rich yeasty aroma, with bananas, vanilla fudge, light sulfuric and mineral notes, very pleasant. In mouth, a nice refreshing wb, not too sweet or heavy, with light banana puree, cloves, again, lighter than expected but well balanced. Medium bodied with light hopping in finale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy deep gold body with a large, frothy white head that lasts. Aroma is thick with grain with plenty of banana esters and a hint of clove. The alcohol is detectable in the aroma. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Alcohol warming. Slight tang behind the sweetness. Tastes of sweet bananas with alcohol like banana’s foster. Medium to full body with a velvety texture. Lively carbonation. Very nice.
