RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a thick three finger high head that settles slowly to a solid cap. The resulting lace is a bit tattered, but sticks nicely, leaving a broken webbing behind. Smell; lots of strong bananas and cloves with a big wheat backing. After this warms up a bit, a little lemon peel and some sweet malts come through, as well as a touch of bubblegum. A bit more weizen than weizenbock in the aroma, but still very good. Taste; the bananas, cloves and wheat are just as prevalent in the flavor as they were in the aroma. Bubblegum and a zesty lemon fill out the middle, and then a sweet maltiness, and a bit of a tartness, come through in the finish. Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a very creamy smooth carbonation, and just an incredible drinkability. This one goes down so smoothy. If this was available anywhere near me I would keep some on hand all of the time. I picked mine up in Grand Rapids, MI.

dnicolaescu (2439) - 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 (1931) - 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.

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.

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.
