COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weisse Bock is an increasingly popular style that is strong and very tasty with all of the fruity, spicy flavors one expects from a wheat beer, and more but never too heavy on the palate. This rich, dark, and enthralling Bock is refreshing and drinks so easily that one would never suspect that it weighs in at 7.2% a.b.v. If you appreciate Aventinus, try Der Weisse Bock.

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

Mrkt 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- thats 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 isnt stay for very long though. Easy to drink but you know its a stonger beer. Not as balanced as the Aventinus, but sure a very nice Weizenbock! Delightful

rondphoto (4286) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 20, 2016
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.
