Bottle from the Natomas BevMo. Note that the GT website carries the HW Weizenbock as a past Cellar Reserve Release - and that was at 8%. This beer is a new Signature Brew. This beer is bottle conditioned. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Nice aroma of banana with some spice underpinning. With the creamy/foamy carbonation this hits medium body. The flavor is mostly banana, very nice taste, and the spice is quite mild. The finish is cleanly done. Not a hint of that nasty paper/wheat so many hefes end with. To style? Likely. But who cares? It’s really good. Ought to be very sessionable. DSG (14764) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 16, 2012

"if i don’t think of this as a pumpkin beer (listed first on the bottle) i can really dig it. this was the first of two unique beers i had tonight. color of a brown ale, body somewhere between brown and porter. very smooth, and supports the flavor well. starting colder, the lemon was front and center and at first could be mistaken for citrusy hops. at a cool temp, this beer was at it’s best, as the yams and herbal flavor and aroma really blended well with the lemon. warmer, the lemon fades, and the fenugreek takes center stage. interesting beer. misleading, though, as pumpkin is the one thing you don’t really taste or smell. too bad too, Elysian does pumpkin best."

Bottle. Banana, lemon, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Mostly clear golden yellow color with small head and moderate effervescence. Sweet ripe banana, clove and light wheat malt flavor. Pretty good - would have liked it better if it were a bit maltier. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2011
