Complex with dark malt flavors that are complemented by esters of banana and clove-like characteristics found in any good Weizen Doppelbock. Traditionally, there was an ordinance in Germany that reserved this style for the sole consumption of the royal family; now they are for everyone!

phaleslu (9854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2013
22 oz. botle via Texas trade, I believe from my buddy Bryan- thanks again! Split three ways. Pours a deep but not opaque chocolate brown with some floaters in the third glass. Notes of caramel, chocolate, brown sugar, banana, clove, pecan, and earth. Some dark stone fruits, as well. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a malty, slightly gritty mouthfeel. I opened this thinking it was just a doppelbock and picking up on some weizen banana and clove, so Im glad to see I wasnt crazy. Good beer.

Not happy to pay the over $9 bucks, but lets see... . pours a murky dark leather brown .. . light foam, hmmm .. . light light spots of lacing .. . some light clove, light chocolate banana, brandy, field trip wet rotting wood, alcohol, and plum skin .. . light silkiness and thickness, easy to drink but lacks the assertiveness that most weizenbocks have, very weak in that sense .. . thin mouth, good in the sense that you could pound this like no ones business, but again, no girth or character .. . wish i was back in the kruger park, that was a good time.. . A really enjoyable brew but way to simple to call an authentic weizenbock, ... . .THIS is the sissy weizenbock talked about on the label, arrogant pricks... .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5y4_W-humw .. .. mammy, mammy.. im not very clear after that...
