16.9 oz bottle. Root beer brown color, lots of carbonation, big fluffy head that snap crackled popped on the way down. Aroma is of clove, wheat, taste is of spice, alcohol, raisin. Finishes light and bitter spreading all over the tongue. Awesome.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 500ml bottle purchased from LCBO in Toronto. Pours a slightly cloudy brown with a fair amount of carbonation. Very nice wheaty aroma. Taste is rich, complex and lovely and full of wheat and malt and a bit of spice. Great lingering aftertaste. Im not one that is able to pick out a bunch of distinct tastes within the beer, so I wont even try... All I know is that this beer is wonderful!

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2007
.5 L bottle. Poured a murky brown with a big light beige head, lots of carbonation. Sweet, estery aroma with some clove as well. This tasted better when it was cold. Fruity and then some caramel in the finish, but as it warmed up it turned into something pretty undrinkable. Sour flavors trying to intermingle with the wheaty, fruity characteristics of the beer didnt appeal to me at all. I didnt think this was particularly special.

Bottle. Pours dark with a huge head - cant get it all in the glass on a single pour! In a word: Smooth. Intense bread, clove and banana aromas. Definately one of my favorites.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Beautiful dark reddish brown ib color with two finger head. Dried fruits, spices, bananas, cloves. too many tastes to acknowledge. Besides Victory Moonglow its the only of this style that Ive encountered & this reigns supreme

Aventinus has a nice head and a rather brown color with a red hue. The aroma has wonderful notes of wheat, malt and fruit and the mouth feeling is smooth. The flavour is sweet and has a lot of different notes of dark, ripe fruits, banana, nuts and wheat. Its a full bodied and heavy beer with the lightness of a wheat beer. So far I havent yet met a wheat as nice as this one, its a sheer pleasure to drink it.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 Poured a reddish-amber with some thin white head. The aroma was filled with cloves and some banana. The taste echoed the aromas, again with cloves being the dominant flavor. There was a faint caramel taste as well, followed by alcohol. The finish was yeasty. In comparison to the only other weizenbock Ive had (Moonglow), the clove aroma and taste was much more evident. Additionally, this brew didnt transform completely like the Moonglow did when it warmed up. Im a big fan of this one. 2001 paper-wrapped version, sampled 4/25/07. The older version was a way different animal, smelling of caramel and dark fruits, somewhat brandy-ish. It kind of reminded me of some barleywines Ive had, which I thought was pretty interesting. The aged version had more of a dark fruity taste, along with a stronger caramel flavor. It was also noticeably boozier and less carbonated. My girlfriend preferred the fresh version, mainly because the older one was boozier. As for me, its tough to choose. Theyre both so different. As it ended up due to the ladys preference, I had more of the older version and I enjoyed it a lot. I suppose Id lean toward the aged version if I really really had to choose.

About a three quarter inch head that was very frothy. I was suprised as to how murky the appearance was. Dark bread and hay aroma with some dough and moderate yeast. Dry tecture and a great level of carbonation. Ive not had many of this style, but I certainly will be buying more of this.
