Bottle sampled at SIB, pours amber orange. Aroma of banana, clove and wheat. Flavour of banana, clove, citrus, wheat and spices. Excellent. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Cloudy tan with a fair bit of effervescence showing through in my (unfortunately) seldom-used weizen glass. Medium, even head. Has an aroma reminescent of that jarred apple sauce we had when I was a kid...not so much nostalgic because that was the shittiest apple sauce, when my mom wasn’t into making the real stuff. That there is more, and richer, malt, than in a normal weizen is quite apparent on this nose as well. Highly carbonated (as expected), sweet, with a fair bit of apple-pear, and a strong, vaguely bready malt base, though one with a touch of plasticy phenols as well. Finishes sweet, again appley, with some complexity but maybe not enough to help me look past those phenols, which follow me right to the death.

Hazy hefeweizen -outlook: orange, creamy white head. Strong sweet banana aroma. Flavor also has lots of wheat: banana esters, sweetness - even sticky sugary sweetness. Finish is crisp and lemony. Very "normal" hefeweizen to be a bpck, just thicker and sweeter. Extremely drinkable as Ayinger always.
Bottle, 7.1%. Hazy dark yellow with medium white head. Aroma is malt, wheat, yeast, fruit and banana. Flavour is malt, wheat, banana, yeast, fruit, medium sweet and clove. yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2008
Bottle. It pours a hazy orange-golden body leaving a small off-white head. There’s a touch of alcohol in the aroma, but most of all there’s sweetness, caramel and banana. Also some cloves. It has a sweet flavor with banana, some citrus and cloves and a nice bitterness. Sure on the fruity and sweet side. Medium to full body, effervescent, with a nice warming feeling. Sweetness, banana, cloves and bitterness in the finish. A lovely beer, well suited for an hour by the fire. (080829) brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, bright orange color with a big white head that eventually settles down a finger’s worth.
S: Lots of sweetness and fruitiness on the nose, which are quite pleasant. Sweet malt and wheat with some ripe apples, pears, and citrus. A touch of spicy esters as well.
T: Moderately sweet with the same clean malt and wheat character. Sweet oranges, apples, and pears are there again as well. The clove spice character is present, but somewhat subdued.
M: The body is medium with a full and rolling carbonation that fills the mouth.
D: Not a problem at all to drink the half liter bottle of this one. Maybe not quite as good as some of the other weizenbocks I’ve had, but still quite quaffable. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
