EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Caramel, herbal aroma. A lot of malt flavor; sweet, brown sugar, raisin/black cherry. Subtle clove aroma and flavor. Not a lot of Hefe yeast character... More like a bock/doppelbock.

Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Poured from a 22ounce bomber, thanks to Ed. Poured with minimal head. The yeast profile is subtle, hint of spice and banana. More of a Bock beer than a Weizen Bock. Super malty with minimal arisen character. Very good beer but the name implies something else.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from Safeway, Eugene. Pours a reddish brown, very little head. Aroma is really hard to pin down. Candi sugar, raisins, cookie dough? Body slightly syrupy, rich. Finish is kind of a let-down, has a weird off-taste, almost grassy, and would be abrupt were it not for said taste. FS has made some incredible lagers, this just isn’t one of them, interesting aroma or no.

maltdog (623) - Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2013
Sexy auburn color, disappointing filmy foam, and a smattering of large, fast bubbles (replaced later by periodic pinpoints). Crazy unpredictable nose- toasty, waxy, raisin, raspberry, pumpernickel, wet vegetation, forest fire, roasted corn, apple dumplings- almost impossible to describe. The taste likewise defies words... undeniably toasty, muted dark caramel, briarfruits, grainy, husky, nutty, fire-grilled meat, woody whisky flavors, anise, nutmeg, thyme, musk, truffle, Barolo (an Itallian wine fermented from the Nebbiolo grape)... mindboggling in both its apparent haphazard diversity and (seredipitous?) deliciousness. Medium-thick mouthfeel has a sugary density, yet boasts only a mild malty sweetness and not a syrupy sapor. Incredibly savory, it would pair equally well with a whole roasted suckling pig, smoked turkey, Irish lamb-and-barley stew... but perhaps best of all with an assortment of German wursts and spicy mustard, sauerkraut and chewy soft pretzels. OMG that would be incredible! I must admit, I wasn’t enthusiastic until tasting; then the incredible complexity and gratifying... meatiness?... won me over. I’ve only ever had one other beer that approached the toasty/herbal/umami quality of this, and that in a tiny, hidden brewpub 1,800 miles from where I live.

drowland (8540) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2013
22oz bomber thanks to post LOLer bitbucket. That fucken guy gave up. This is my first Full Sail rating since the malt liquor. Fuck yes. Sweet caramel and banana in the aroma and flavor. Quite mild. This is not the best beer I’ve ever had, but it’s good and definitely not terrible. Fuck you assholes for downrating this guy’s homebrew recipe. This is good shit AND money went to a charity. Assholes.

jcnielsen (3399) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sending! Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, slight toffee, slight alcohol aromas. Caramel, bread, slight yeast/wheat flavor. Slightly off for a weizenbock. Kind of boring.

BrewBoxer (2630) - New York, New York, USA - APR 19, 2013
Draft at the growler NYC. Deep brown color. No weizen look to me. Taste is kind of bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (7628) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, caramel, husks), lightly hoppy (apricot), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of apple, grape bubble gum, cotton candy, cinnamon, paint. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Wow, just terrible. Seemingly brewed by someone who has never actually had a Weizenbock or been to Germany. Drain pour.

RobertDale (6320) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Pours clear amber with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and yeast. Taste is caramel malt, wheat, fruit, spice, and alcohol. Somewhat sweet. Mild hops. Pretty good.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2013
Really nice copper color. Smells kinda mineral-like and lagerish, no hint of weizen-style yeast. Tastes kinda thin. I know "thin" isn’t a flavor, but there’s not much else there. Almost like they used the wheat to lighten up a dopplebock, instead of using it and the appropriate yeast to add flavor and character. Probably good for a quick buzz @ an easy drinking 7%. But, hey, very pretty color.
