Cloudy, gooey honey appearance, with typical weisse froth. Super-sweet aroma, floral (honey suckle and roses), sweet cream, light spice. Yum. Doesn’t quite live up to the olfactory experience, but still quite good. A bit more hop presence here than I’m used to, and there’s a light alcoholic tinge. Appropriate balance between wheat and bock characteristics. Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2002
An interesting variation of the typical wheat. I liked the darker color and enjoyed the fruity undertones. vacek (67) - College Station, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2002
The bock is more often than not a favorite of mine, but this one just didn’t appeal to me. I was alreday a few pints into the night, so it went down easily, but it was obvious that I just did not enjoy the taste of this one as much as others I have had. Seemed somewhat salty to me. But despite that, very original. maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAR 29, 2002
This is a 7% alcohol by volume wheat beer brewed in bottled in München, Germany. Pours with a cloudy orange/caramel color with a thick, beige colored head. Malty aroma with yeasty, citrusy, banana-like, clove, nutmeg, and dark rye bread flavors. A great beer that is actually pretty refreshing even though it is high in alcohol.

Very refreshing. It looked very pretty....the aroma reminded me of a golden belgian. It had sweet hoppy flavor as it went down and rounded out smoothly. Not bad at all.

An excellent bock. The wheat flavor comes out toward the finish perfectly! Fruity beginning, quite sweet. Very complex, very enjoyable. Ernest (7661) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2002
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy light amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (light bread), moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of banana, clove, and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. In all honesty, having just sampled H-P’s regular Weisse minutes ago, this is just a sweeter/thicker version of that...the aroma is extremely similar, and the color is only marginally darker (the picture here is misleading, as it’s really light/medium amber). Pleasant though. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2002
Excellent spicy and fruity beer. Hacker’s regular dark wheat was a little bit disappointing to me, but this wonderful wheat bock made up for it. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2002
Very nice and definitely recommended. Dark weiss beers are fast becoming one of my favorite styles. The darkness does not overshadow the wheat as you may expect, rather it adds a new dimension to it. TAR (2742) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 What a fine product. Dessert apples and delicate floral hops. Some chocolate and beautiful deep orange with some spices and slippery wheat in there. A pretty solid weizenbock!
