3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
2015 BJCP Category: 10C Weizenbock
AROMA: Spicy/sweet nose of Maillard products, whole wheat bread, and clove-like phenolics. Dark fruit character, especially plum, cherry and raisins. Some alcohol presence and some signs of oxidation. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Dark ruby-brown hue. Mostly cloudy but translucent. Slow, fine carbonation visible. Pours to a large, tan, soapy head which completely dissipates. Large yeast chunks visible, too. 1/3
FLAVOR: Palette is more sweet than spicy, but a bit mild. A dark fruit combination of plum, raisin and fig dominate. Wheaty/bready flavor is present as a background note throughout. No hop flavor or bitterness. Finishes with a slight medicinal taste (could be chlorophenols, but most likely oxidation). Slight rum-like alcohol taste emerges on finish and lingers momentarily. 13/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; low carbonation. Feels a bit flat and thick in the mouth but is not sticky. Mostly dry aftertaste. Has the weight of a 7.2% ABV brew, but not the robustness or complexity. Minor alcohol warmth. 2/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Has the basics of the style down, but has not improved with age despite bottle conditioning. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 30/50

Mørkt med lavt skum. Behagelig duft med sjokolade, kaffe og karamell. Litt tynn i smaken som er godt preget av kaffe.

on tap @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos Greece
Well I read about "watery body", but -luckily- that’s not the case. Very smooth, warm full body with a great palate. You got caramel, chocolate, nuts, roasty notes and a hint bitterness in the finish. Beige head that isn’t stay for very long though. Easy to drink but you know it’s a stonger beer.
Not as balanced as the Aventinus, but sure a very nice Weizenbock! Delightful

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Mahrs Brau / Bamberg / Germany --- Aroma of sweet dark malt. Clear brown color, big tan head that drops to a thick cover, sprays of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with medium carbonation that shows only traces of hops. So rich, sweet and dark that I think I detect traces of brown sugar and vanilla. Balanced, with everything complimenting everything else. A solid Weiss Bock at the brewery. Highly recommended.
