Fat. Dimmigt orange med ett vitt skum som snart sjunker ihop. Ljuvliga dofter av apelsinmarmelad, banan och jäst. Smakinslag av desamma plus kryddnejlika. Uppfriskande och lättdrucken trots 7,8% alkohol. Garrold (5926) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Tap. Shakespeares, Sheffield. The occasion didn’t suit taking notes. Tasty gear, mind. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2015
[Tap] Cloudy orange pour with a copious amount of head. Nice lacing lingers on the glass. Banana, clove, vanilla and sticky malts in the nose. Yeasty phenols, wheat malt, grains, lemon and sweet breads take center stage in the flavor. Creamy body. Effervescent carbonation. Tasting notes from 9/2014. vanvenlo (1938) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2014

I really can’t get past the sweetness of this one. Loads of bananas and sugar. I’m pissed at the end of a 750ml bottle from Tru Bru, so that must be good, right? anders37 (27892) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2014

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Not sure how long this has been on, since Swoopjones below rated it 2 weeks ago. Regardless, I liked this a lot. Sweet, some banana, sweet fruits, with a decent creamy mouthfeel to it. Hazy golden-brown pour. I’m a sucker for a nice weizenbock so was pleased with this one. Went down well with dinner.....really hit the spot on a cold day. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Pint, shared by Andrew R at North High Brewery. He left me with ~65% of it. Pretty much entirely hazy golden orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Great bigger banana ... almost an artificial level of banana, geez, there’s a lot of banana in here. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitter, kind of tart, with a mildly spicy edge to it. Aside from the slightly excessive sugary syrupy sweetness, I don’t mind it. Cool big banana aroma, spiciness, toasty malt, and burnt sugars. An alright weizenbock, but a bit subpar for what I expect from a craft example of the style. Losing some faith in Brooklyn specialties, lately, from what I’ve been trying. Weizenbock is a style that has a special place in my heart, and this is decent, but there are a lot of better examples. This one is too spicy, too syrupy sweet, a little forced, not much balance and nuance. A bit artificial tasting, you could say. I do appreciate how North High is serving this in pints, though... I think Weizen Bock is a style made for pints, but most people put them in snifters just because of the higher ABV. However this one may have made for a better sipper in a snifter, just because it’s excessively sugary and sweet. The pint is not swiggable, it does not have a balanced taste, like it should have. It’s worth noting, that by the time I finished this rate the head had faded to virtually nothing. Disappointing overall, for one of my favorite styles.
