smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Pours deep amber with moderate off-white that diminishes to 1/4 inch film. Aroma is spicy banana, cloves, caramel, and ripe fruit. Mouthfeel is moderate and fizzy. Taste still has that banana but not as much as the aroma would indicate. There is prominent spice with nice sweet ripe fruit throughout. Finish is tangy and spicy. Very good stuff.

Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Pours a dark, ruby color with a long lasting flury white head. Sweet on the nose with a little fig. Rasins, dates, fig, and sweet malt on the palate with a lingering finish.

Another of my recently found sampling notes that don’t contain any comments. Damn my laziness! At least now I have confirmed that I’ve had it and it seems I really liked it.

ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2007
UPDATED: APR 7, 2009 Hazy brown pour with a fluffy off white head and spotty lace. Sweet malty aroma with notable hints of spice, dark fruits, and caramel. Flavor definitely follow suite. Alcohol is noticeable on the finish, however its not too offensive.

Bottle. 5-3-07 This is the highest rated beer available in Arkansas, so I was hesitant to try it. Didn’t want to get my hopes up. My buddy and I pulled ours out of the fridge and held them for a moment to let them warm. They poured a deep red-brown with a nice puffy head. As this dissipates, and the flavors waft from the glass, my nose perks up. Toffee, caramel, figs and huge esters pop out immediately. The flavor is rich and luxurious. It has the softness and drinkability of a traditional german hefeweizen, the rich malt character of a delicious dopplebock, and the intense estery aroma of a belgain tripel or summer siason. We stood inside his garage, sheltered from the spring rain that dotted softly outside and raised our glasses to a friend as quiet darkness settled in around us.

pojo41 (315) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle. Caramel-brown color. Nice, fluffy off-white head that lasts. Notes of caramel and brown sugar in the aroma along with the hint of bubblegum. Very good mouth feel. Tastes of roasted malt and brown sugar. Slightly sweet, almost fruity flavor. Cherries maybe? This is my first crack at a weizenbock and it is very good.

3.6
BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2007
Strong scent, slightly sweet malts, fruit, banana. Golden orange in colour, white head. Sharp and sweet in taste, complex, fruity and spicy. Nutmeg, banana, malty. The alcohol content is pretty obvious sadly. This brewery can certainly hide it (see the Eisbock - which I vastely prefer). Ah well, still quite nice and drinkable.

2.7
littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - APR 28, 2007
Aroma is very yeasty and wheaty with hints of fruit. Pours amber/light brown with foamy head that diminishes to a thin film. Initial flavor is mostly yeast/wheat, finishes with light fruit taste with some bitterness. Overall not my style, but not altogether bad.

4.8
Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2007
Tasted this one a few years back, and i do remember it as good, but this exceeds my expectations. Aroma is so mild and sweet, yet so complex. Lots of easters, spices including cloves, cherries and vanilla. Flavor of honey and port whine, with a palate that tickels your gums in a really plesant way, warming and sleightly bitter finish
