Very strong flavour. Excellent for a cold day. 500cc is a great measure. I will buy it again RickReallyBrew (105) - Franktown, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2015
This weizenbock is traditionally Deutsch. No discernible hop character but definitely imperial in Bavarian bock malt. Every molecule is imparted with distinct flavors of the Bavarian weizen yeast strains. I have always held these high Gravity weizens sacred. Similar in some ways to Belgian ales due to the characteristic nature of the weizen ale yeast strains, these ale style have flavors reminiscent of each other. However, this bier has a tremendous dark malt character. Ther is nothing in the wild ester flavor department characterized by warm fermentation temperatures. A true German bock weizen brewed with ample Bavarian malts to a rather intoxicating gravity and ethanol content. Heavenly. tallmatt67 (99) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2003
A masterpiece! This beer has not been rated highly enough to date! Strongly malty (bready?) aroma with a faint toffee character. Moderately high carbonation and a creamy full body. Sweet caramel Vienna malt lingers and is contrasted with spicy alcohol and persistent hop bitterness. Strongly subdued esters are barely noticeable. Did I just imagine banana? Figgy aftertaste is really pleasant. Do yourself a favor: This beer is the epitome of the style. I dare you to honestly find a better one. Grzesiek79 (4378) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 22, 2012

A masterpiece! I must concur with tallmatt67. This beer has not been rated highly enough to date! The Erdinger line is as close as I have found to the beer on tap in Germany.
