When I think of Lagunitas, I don’t think of doppel weizens, so this was a surprise. Very nice, dark gold an aromatic. Banana and spice, honey, and sweet maltiness. Andrew196 (1858) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Pours a cloudy marmalade, one finger, frothy white head, sticky. Aroma is big, stone fruit, caramel, rich florals... Very inviting. Malts really shine on this, caramel, peach, earth, spice...traces of woodiness, white grape and alcohol in the finish pretty good but a hair disappointing after a hot start. csaso (2266) - Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2017
Bottle - good size foamy head, dark gold color, sweet malty aroma and flavor with some mild fruity esters, smooth finish, easy drinking so watch out for the increased alcohol, very good overall

Aroma is wheat, fruit/lemon and big sugar/candy. The flavor is citrus/light lemon, wheat, fruit, slick texture and a mix of spicy and slightly nutty in the finish. VinegarStroke (420) - Napa, California, USA - APR 18, 2017
Bottle: Not my style. Lots of aroma and flavor but way too much banana ester and a palate that’s excessively sweet. Lacks the bitterness or acid to support it.

Aromas of peaches, mangoes, and overly sweet caramel. Taste is peaches, mangoes, salt water taffy, caramel. Finish has some wheat and pine tar. After warming banana esters and clove appear in the middle of the mouth. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - APR 9, 2017
Pours a hazy copper color with a smallish white head. Booze, banana, clove, floral, biscuit and yeast aroma and flavors. Medium body and lively carbonation Booze, clove and bread finish. bubbleflubber (2210) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2017
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is of orange, tangerine and mixed citrus zest (some lemon-lime predominant), amongst citric hops. Orange, tangerine and lemon-lime flavors mingle with a nice, lightly peppering hop, finishing with a curt, citric zest/peel bitterness. The integration here is perfect: a combination of a medium-full body and zesty mouthfeel that keeps the palate active, concentrating on citrus notes, alongside nice citric hop bitters. I do not use the word "citrus" so much unless it is in tandem with the essential aspects of the brew. Juicy, lively, complex-for-days, this is a very unique take on the Weizen-Bock style... and one that craves for another... and another. Superior brew here! Kudos to Lagunitas on this offering. I would take this any time, any day! Scipio (1044) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2017
Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. The rather pleasing aroma contains a combination of orange and banana, with lesser amounts of wheat, honey, and bread. The taste is a bit sweet and has a mild, lingering bitterness. Orange is still big, with wheat being the main compliment. It has undertones of lemon, spice, banana, and just the faintest hint of caramel. The aftertaste is a short, gentle wheat. Its medium in body, with a smooth, creamy texture, and about average in carbonation. This is very easy drinking, and nothing makes you believe that its 9%. This is good.
