Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Weizen glass. Appearance: Cloudy but bright orange with billowing foamy white head. Aroma: Massive banana and bubblegum, with some clove, wheat and spicy noble hops. Taste: Similar to the aroma, with loads of sweet banana and bubblegum, at least at first. Then the hops and clove come in and provide some great balance. Ends with lingering pepper and clove. Palate: Creamy full body with moderate carbonation. Surprisingly dry finish after the initial sweet onslaught. Overall: This is a great Weizenbock, and I seriously do not know what is wrong with the reviewers to date. I usually do not like it when Lagunitas steps away from their hoppy comfort zone, but this is incredible.

Pour is a bright opaque Orange with little white head. Smell is big bananas with clove and sweet tangerines. Taste is banana nut clovey muffins with burnt brown sugar on top. Good America German beer.

9/21/11. 22oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a nice creamy tan head that sticks and laces nicely. Fruity, yeasty aroma with big, spicy phenolics. Sweet, bready entry with nice soft wheat, a touch of tang, creamy bananas, and more big spice. Not bad!

ChapelThrill (52) - California, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle - 22 oz. Pours a cloudy yellowish amber color. Aromas of citrus, bananas, hay, and some bready malt. Wish it tasted as good as it smelled, but this one just didnt do it for me. Tasted barely of the "weizen" family... light sweet flavors of caramel, but followed by a slightly bitter hop finish. Was expecting a more tarditional german style, but knowing its Lagunitas, I should have expected the hoppy overtones. Carbonation is low, but high abv is noticeable and it becomes more like numerous other strong ales out there the more sips you take. Decent beer, but was expecting something more/ different.

22oz bottle. thick, viscous, honey-like pour that has a very cloudy appearance in the glass under a small, creamy, white head. sweet, robust nose of dough and banana. palate is fittingly full, but a bit over-carbonated for me. flavors of banana, a hint of alcohol, a twist of grapefruit bitterness i didnt see coming judging from the aroma, marshmallow and doughy yeast.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Bottle. Nice hazy dark orange pour, a little carbonation and a very banana forward aroma. Flavor is slick bready banana, sweet and very alcoholic on the aftertaste. I can see this beer being a lot better if they dialed back the alcohol content.

650 ml bottle from bevmo. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is rich with fruity wheat, bread and cloves. The taste is more of the same, lots of banana, sourdough bread and mild spices(cloves). The palate is full and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with a bit of tang. Overall: Great beer.

22 oz bottle @ redlight redlight. banana and clove on the nose. Pours an orange color with a dissipating white head. Banana upfront with clove spiciness following, first sip i get traditional Bavarian flavors, second sip the hops kick in, grassy citrusy hops. Not bad.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2011
$4 in South Oregon. Pours a lovely cloudy light oranged yellow color. Nose is quite malty with hints of clove ice cream. Flavor runs very Bavarian Hefe style with mild hints at banana and little bits of sweet cream somehow. Most of the flavor is dominated by the clove aspect, which hits in the body and finishes out the beer, lingering heavily - more than your average Bavarian Hefe, but its kind of nice! All in all, its good...could be a bit thicker in the body, but I like it! Nice to see Lagunitas continually doing different things - AND keeping their price at $4 a 22oz!
