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 (1276) - 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.

Hoppy orange zest and bread with a wheat tang and a slight taste of aspirin. Much too hoppy for a bock. GenDV138 (7900) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017

Leave it to Lagunitas to turn an awesome beer style into an IPA.... it's an okay beer just not what I was expecting or hoping for.
