MoritzF (9624) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2005
(bottle) Dark brown colour with a small creamy beige head. Sweet malty nose with yeasts, caramel and vanilla. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, smooth carbonated. Initially sweet malty with raisins, dried fruits, sweet malty, slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but I miss the characteristics of a Weizen.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2005
30cl bottle. pours dark brown with a suprisingly thick head. Aroma is of of sweet candy with a bit of malt. The simple sweetness dominates any other flavors in this beer, and the syrupy liquid seems to coat your muoth. not bad from a big brewer, but not something i would drink a lot of.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Deep amber colour with a fine, dense and creamy head. Full-bodied and (a bit to) sweet with caramel and roasted malt. But hasnt really got very distinct wheaty notes. 171001

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Bottle, came in a gift pack with two nice snifters. Pours a nice looking deep coppery red, with a small white finger width head. This one is all about the malts...the nose and flavor are both dominated by them....some appropriate hoppiness, but certainly not a dominant quality. Nice fruity flavor..smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with a toffee sweetness hedged by a hop or two...better than I wouldve guessed.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2005
As good of a beer as a megabrewery has ever produced. Theres a real depth to this beer--deep color, deep wheat maltiness, and a decent but not overpowering hoppiness. A solid performer.

TBone (16829) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2005
Bottled (BB 11/2005)
Dark nut brown, quickly vanishing brown head. Dark malty and toffeeish nose. Sticky sugary palate with roasted barley flavor. Some alcohol. Very (too) sweet and quite simple.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 3, 2005
(on bottle) Couldent make the wheat out at first, but its in there somewhere... Dark, clear/golden brew. Has a sweet ncispy sent, but nothing like a weizen-bock Ive had before, bit weak infact. The malts are not like whaet I think, dont have that fudgy feeling to them. The beers ends with a hint of caramel.

madsberg (11648) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Beige head. Malt and fruit in the aroma. Some alcohol, fruits and sweetness in the flavour. Spices and some vague roastyness present. Is thin bodied and has some sweetness and malt in the end.
