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.

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, its decent but not great.

klm1 (1461) - 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 (2477) - 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 (2052) - 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.

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.

WillemsUrenkel (1782) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2015
0,5 l bottle. Unclear dark orange in the glass, big foamy white head. Low fruity nose. Taste starts with some fruity elements and present wheat, sweet. Alcoholic background. Thins out to the end. Expected more power and heaviness, but still okay.

Zlotta (3038) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2015
0.5 l bottle from Biermuda, best before May 2016. Cloudy, brownish amber with a huge, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy aroma of banana, honeydew, vanilla and cloves. Sweetish, slightly sourish, yeasty-spicy taste of banana, honeydew, vanilla, some honey and cloves, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, sourish, spicy finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Moreish, tasty stuff.
