   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAR 12, 2012
Huge banana esters dominate the nose backed up by sweet/sour wheat, raisins and some alcohol. Clear tan body is topped by a shy white head that recedes rapidly to a slight ring. Flavour follows the aroma but is perhaps a bit too sweet up front. Medium body doesnt really have enough carbonation for style. Some warming. Doesnt really work for me. Tulip glass. A little above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in February 2012.

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 (412) - Napa, California, USA - APR 18, 2017
Bottle: Not my style. Lots of aroma and flavor but way too much banana ester and a palate thats excessively sweet. Lacks the bitterness or acid to support it.

bubbleflubber (2207) - 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 (980) - 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.

jeremyh70 (1099) - Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2017
Hoppy orange zest and bread with a wheat tang and a slight taste of aspirin. Much too hoppy for a bock.

GenDV138 (6982) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017

Oscbert (1281) - Lincoln, California, USA - APR 6, 2017
Bready malty aroma with citrus orange hops, spicy peppery yeast, un ripened banana. Pours a cloudy golden amber color with creamy white head Sweet bready malt flavor with citrus hops. Yeast present but overpowered by hop. Medium full bodied, medium co2, lingering hop bitterness. 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
