gbzia (195) - Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Hand carried from Germany and not currently imported. A nice lighter wb, without the body of the ’best weizen bocks’ on this site. But still enjoyable.... if you can get some!

hauxe (1015) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2018
Pours dark brown from the bottle. A frothy, tan head lingers. Aroma is banana, smoke, and dark bread. Taste is banana sweet, yeasty, with a bit of dough, then reveals a mild tartness that picks up near the end. Body is medium, a touch oily, not hugely carbonated but still made me want to burp. Overall a hard one for me to place. Burpy for me—but still pretty good.

Herkunft definitiv WeizenbockCountry. Banane & Co. also an Bord. Erweitert wird das Bouquet durch säuerliche Smokeverweise & CremeFeeling. 0,5l Buddel. Hat Ratty aus der Fränkischen mitgebracht.

olio (10669) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 16, 2017
50 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 21.09.2017.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma has wheat and ripe fruits, some yeast, faint cocoa and sourish berries. Flavor is moderately sourish fruity and ripe, some wheat and yeast notes, mild spices and earth, subtle caramel sweetness. Nice.

laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 16, 2017
UPDATED: APR 16, 2017 50 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 21.9.2017. Aroma has chocolate and coffee. Flavour has coffee, toffee, some chocolate , ashy notes and mild minerals. A weizenbock? I thought this would be a schwartz.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 18, 2017
500ml bottle (Gambrinus Degustation, Tartu)
Grilled banana aroma. Rich palate, not heavy, but full. Taste also has grilled banana. Nice dry bitter hops in the finish. No sign of the alcohol. Nice level of roast. Only the banana says wheat here, but that’s fine.

Zlotta (4135) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2017
0.5 l bottle from ’P&M Getränke’, best before September 2017. Hazy, very dark reddish brown with a large, foamy, stable, beige head. Sweetish, moderately yeasty-spicy and a little roasty aroma of overripe banana, chocolate, clove and nuts. Sweetish, rather roasty and moderately yeasty-spicy taste of dark chocolate, overripe banana, toasted nuts and a touch of dark ripe fruits, followed by a medium long, quite roasty-bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and rather effervescent mouthfeel, above average carbonation. Saturating, rather roast-accented Weizenbock, quite enjoyable. I’m glad that I got the opportunity to re-reate this, it’s definitely worth it! Could have some aging potential by the way. Score is for the new rating only.

Old rating: 0.5 l bottle as a little present from my parents, best before September 2015. Very murky, dark reddish brown with a massive, creamy, stable, tan head. Some ugly flocs in the glass as well. Sourish aroma of rotten fruits, sour cherries and nuts with hints of banana. Sweetish-sourish taste of rotten fruits, sour cherries, banana, nuts and cocoa. Short, sourish finish. Medium to full body, fizzy and creamy texture, very lively carbonation. Very weird brew. I don’t believe that the sourness in this beer is intended and/or appropriate in a weizenbock. This batch maybe infected. Still quite good if you rate it hedonistically and don’t mind the style. This one needs another try. (5/3/5/3/12/2.8)

Cthulhu (1031) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - JAN 27, 2017
50 cl bottle at Franky, Nbg. App:Dark brown hazy color.Medium and stable off-white head.Aroma: Banana, yeast.Taste: Deep fruitiness, roast notes, banana,dark chocolate and toffee. Palate: Full body with fizzy carbo. Dry and acidic finish Ovv: It’s not that common to come across a Dunkler Weizenbock and rarer to enjoy anything with wheat. This one was really good. Couldn’t refrain to finish it in a couple of minutes.

SinH4 (6554) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle. Brown color with creamy tan head. Aroma is slight coffee, some yeasts, bananas - more or less like ash-covered bananas. Taste is bananas, roasted malts, quite dry, mineralic. Oily mouthfeel. Interesting.

jfb (6975) - GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
(bottle) murky deepest brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of cinnamon, sweatsocks and roasted malts, with some notes of earth, ethanol, light dark chocolate and wheat. flavour is mostly toasted wheat, ash and clove, with a light hint of brown fudge and a rather astringent roasted-bitter finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.
