3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Not sure I would put this under Weizen Bock, wheat isn’t listed as an ingredient and really it just tasted nothing like a weizen bock. If I had to lump it anywhere I’d go with Imperial/Strong Pils or whatever the hell that category is I guess. Pours amber gold with an off white head. Weird sweetish malty aroma with some toasty notes and grassy hops. The flavor has grassy hops, light floral notes, sweet malts and some boozy notes. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a lightly hazy, amber brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, roast, and a bit of smoke. Taste of citrus fruits, roasted malts, dark fruits, and vanilla. Alcohol was present in the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tastes like an old-fashioned strong lager. Certainly doesn’t seem to be a Weizen Bock, wheat is not listed as an ingredient. Custom Brewcrafters is very vague on the style. I do taste the German influence, mostly in the water feel (hard) and hops used (German) and the buttery palate, that turns sort of Pils - ish.
Other notes - the mouthfeel is a touch alcoholic, and though this was labeled ’doppelbock’ it seems to have little in common with that style.
Overall feeling - overpriced for what it is.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light reddish amber bock with a thick frothy off white head. In aroma, light caramel malt a bit off and herbal. In mouth, a big chunky caramel malt and grassy taste, roasted malts, warming alcohol, a bit unbalanced. On tap at Tap and Mallet, July 30, 2010.

Draft @ Coles, Buffalo, NY. Deeper golden pour. Rich malts, vegetables, very light vinegar notes. Rich honey malt taste, light herbal honey finish. Stronger in terms of ABV. OK

Just put on tap at Cole’s by the owner Mike. CB has been stepping it up for an extreme series, and this is the latest installment, an imperial weizen. It is boozy and it is also fruity. Got much apple juice and it is aggressively carbonated, the latter being the trademark of CB beers I have experienced over time. Long lasting white head on cloudy yellow body.
