Braumeister Selekt. This Gordon Biersch creation applies Eisbock brewing techniques to a bock made primarily from malted wheat. Eisbock was produced using a technique created by a forgetful brewer from the Kulmbach Brewery in Kulmbach, Germany, who accidentally left kegs of bock beer outside during the coldest days of winter. Our modern-day process involves freezing the water molecules out of the brew and removing the frozen portion, thus concentrating the alcohol and flavor of the resulting ale.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 This is a really nice beer to have with just about anything. The beer drinks quickly and the mild carbonation makes this happen. This is what I would call semi-sweet and the super dark appearance adds to this mysterious brew. I taste caramel, resin, raisin, vanilla, molasses and a slight hint of cereal. This is quite well-balanced and pretty admirable. Found four bottles at Rip’s Wine and Spirits Shop in Bowie. Score!

Smells wheaty and malty with citrus out the wazoo. Brown as can be without being black and tan head. Tastes citrusy but chocolaty at the same. Like one of those cholocate oranges that you only see around christmas time. Kind of a creamy after taste. This beer is comlex as fuck. I’m getting a lot of different sights/smells out of this. It’s really f-ing good. Gonna drink it again in the future. Thanks Kevin!

750mL swing top pours with a deep clear mahogany body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet fruitiness in the form of dates and prunes and brown sugar coated figs with a thin ribbon of caramel rimming the aromatic experience. The taste is similar and is smooth on the palate with sweet ripe red apple that are lightly coated with brown sugar. It then heads into sweet notes of dates, figs and prunes. To midway some sweet caramel surfaces along with a malty note or two. This is smooth stuff with a well hidden ABV.

Strong yet balanced, syrupy thick the alcohol blends well with the sweetness of the wheat and malt.

IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
750 ml bottle from Bottles N Bins Liquors and Deli. Nose is light bananas, cloves, and hints of toffee and bubblegum. Lightly hazy rusty red with a small beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet, ripe bananas, a hint of bitter, and a slight musty old ale taste.

StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
750 ml bottle from a local grocery store. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that soon recedes to a ring. The aroma is strong with banana, sweet malts and cloves. The flavor mirrors the aroma, lots of wheat flavors, banana, cloves and sweet malts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and a bit numbing. Overall: a decent Weizenbock.

Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color with an OK tan head. Strong, wheat aroma with a sense of lemon and light tartness. Strong wheat taste with that alcohol kick. Fruity finish. Decent brew.

bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Mahogony-ruby beer with a tan head. Wheat and spice aroma with light yeast. Fruity, yeast flavor with banana and wheat. Medium bodied. Wheat and spice linger with light toffee, fruitiness, and light yeast.

On tap at the Annapolis location this winter. Poured cloudy brown with a nice head and sweet aroma. Alcohol did not follow as 10% it was very smooth. Tastes of sweetness and a small bit of hop in the end. Best GB beer i’ve had.

radagast83 (8340) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle provided by argo0, thanks! Poured a golden color with plenty of notes of light, sweet malts. Flavor was notes of malts, touch of banana and some touch of alcohol. This was okay.
