Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Hazy orange colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is wheat, mild rubbery and citrusy notes with some slight spices and yeastyness. Flavour is balanced wheat, citrus, yeast and some slight spices. Mild rubbery aftertaste along with some toffee as well.

Bottle from Getränkefeinkost - clear golden color, white head. taste is mainly rather dry malty, body is not too strong. medium sweet. very round weizenbock, not too intense and very drinkable despite the abv. nice.

Bottle from Biervana, Munich. Hazy gold with soapy head, nice lacing. Ripe bananas, baked walnut bread aroma. Tasty malty and interesting baked apple pie and banana cream flavors. Not sure if it's the bottle but I'm also getting a little apple cider vinegar. Nobody else has mentioned it so perhaps this one is a little spoiled. Although the bb date was 3/2018... Still able to enjoy it and makes me want to drink more similar weizenbocks.

ebone1988 (2073) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Aroma is caramel, banana, wheat, malt, spice, clove, good. Appearance is amber golden, hazy, off white to light tan head. Taste is spice, caramel, wheat, banana, clove, eh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, caramel wheat spice aftertaste. Overall, it’s decent but not great.

klm1 (1782) - Bled/SF, - MAY 17, 2017
Pours light brown cloudy colour with moussy long lasting white, almost off-white head. Aroma: bread, wheat grain-like malt charackter, banana esters, clove like phenols. Flavour just follows aroma with dry finish and enhanced by gentle alcohol presence. Medium to full body, fluffy texture, medium carbonation.

dnicolaescu (2680) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 12, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL, only 2 months to BB date. Hazy dirty amber, spongy white head. The aroma is vaguely fruity, a little hot an pretty spicy - not as intense as expected. Prickly carbonation. The taste is of a sweet wheat beer, but not much more than that. For a weizenbock, just mediocre.

vinivini (2827) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 23, 2016
Hazy honey yellow. Tall dense white head. Well-lacing. Concentrated spicy yeast on nose. Lots of clove, banana sweetness. Oh I love it. Medium body. It tastes surprisingly dry. Nice yeast profile. Spicy, fruity, yummy. Low bitterness. No regrets about it. Highest class.

50cl bottle shared at the Paas monthly tasting. Medium creamy white head. Hazy light amber pour. Refreshing.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2016
500ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an off white head. Bananas, fruity, yeast, and some cloves.

biirusaikou (2705) - - MAR 26, 2016
Draught at Pigalle. Rich creamy banana, nice mouthfeel, honey, vanilla, pepper, pretty much all I love about that style, finish is quite dry. Solid weizenbock, nicely smooth and creamy.
