according to Iron Hill web site, the Alcohol by Vol: is 9.9%
Full-bodied ale is made with 45 % wheat, which contributes a slightly fruity malt flavor . A hint of orange citrus and caramel.
An appealing amber color.
A strong bready malt character and banana and clove flavors from the yeast.
A very nice Weizenbock, not a "me too" offering here.
Tap in Lancaster, this one 8.0% abv. Ultra-lacing beige head on hazy brown body with lovely amber highlights. Nose overdriven bubblegum and red berry, really no clove, medium-strong banana esters, strong wheat. Medium-full body crisp and brings Maillard along with beautiful grape and grape sugar, just a touch of balancing bitterness. Dfonorow (2318) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2011
AKA Eisenhugel. Pours light brown with some slight orange and a half-finger wide white head. Aroma is on the fruity and spicy side with notes of cloves, bananas, caramel, and a tad of citrus. Flavor is on the sweeter side: toffee, sweet bread, yeast. hbmason (1086) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2010

Mouthfeel is medium in body, smooth and refreshing. Not bad !!! cazort (568) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008
(On tap in Lancaster) Wheaty, rich,a bit sweet and a bit sour, very fruity without being too estery. A totally different category from the indescribably awful Hefeweizen brewed by this same brewery. Enjoyable, and moderately complex. Miver (615) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Draft at Wilmington location. Poured deep brown in color with a beige head. Aroma was fruity and sweet. Taste of fruity esters, banana bread, cloves, and mild spices. It was pretty average but certainly not a bad beer.
