RedHaze's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
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.

500ml Bottle - Hazy golden/light amber with a foamy head. Banana and hints of cloves in the aroma. Lemon meringue, banana and hints of apple all feature in the tangy taste. Slightly sharp in the finish yet rather interesting.

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 (2232) - 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 (1919) - 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 (2787) - 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 (3146) - 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.
