Magnificent beer, reminds me more of an abt/quadrupel than a weizen bock. Commercial description is very accurate. However (to the beers benefit), it finishes with various flavors and a strong punch.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 Nose was sweet, cloves and bananas; transparent highly carbonated brown body, with a thick beige head; flavor was spicy and sweet with cloves and finished with a tingle from the carbonation and a hoppy bite.

I know this is a highly respeted beer, but I was less then impressed, esp. considering how much it cost. The pour showed a nice dark brown-amber beer with a good head but after that the expierence was a little disappointing. It isnt a bad beer, but doesnt live up to the hype.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 Re-rate, March 07 on draft at Ludwigs: Fine stuff, no need to add more dribble to this text. Re-rate, Feb 07, non-vintaged bottle this time: Despite being an early review from me, my first one seems to do it justice. Slight alcohol detected this time through, probably because I bought the standard bottle unaged, but it was still wonderful, super delightful, very smooth, as good as a weizenbock can get. The rating is getting bumped a bit for its within style quality (a few more weizenbocks under my belt now). Having an Aventinus Weiznestarkbier glass made the crowned fluffy head and overall appearance all the better too. An excellent beer. Original rating follows with more descript comments.... Original rating: Bottle from 2001 batch. This one exceeded all expectations. Fantastic. Pour resulted in a brown-amber colored beer with a single finger of tan head on top. The head settled, but remained as a persistent (to the last sip) thin covering on top of the beer, that actually laced ok the whole drink. The aroma was sweet, clove-like, accompanied by bananas and a light roastedness. The flavor was based on a sweet weizen base with spices (cloves) and some roasted caramel type malts detected. Not as dry as many a dunkelweizen, and certainly richer and more complex, this one was very enjoyable. Dark fruits and chocolate hide beneath it all and come out more as it warms. Lots of stuff going on here, and the alcohol is super smooth. Ill have to try a recent bottling to see how this is unaged.

Pours a cloudy orangeish brown with a bigass light brown head. Aroma is of yeast, bananas, cloves, raisins, caramel, and some wheat. Taste is much of the same. Tart up front, then some bitterness comes in, and then lots of cadied sugary sweetness on out. Can definitely taste the alcohol. Has characteristics of both bock and a weiss, though I think it leans more toward a weiss. Very good.

Pours a cloudy brown color with a thick tan head. Aroma is of dark fruits, lemon, wheat, caramel, and spices. Flavor is the same, very well blended between the wheat flavor and the caramel and dark fruit flavor. Very delicious brew, highley recommended.

timtheenchanta (70) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Almost purple brown appearance with a thin head that holds but yields little lacing. Loads of carbonation bubbles continuously float up from the bottle of the glass. Large wheat smell with some alcohol and chocolate malt. Tastes are along the same lines being very sweet initially with some yeasty flavors initially and the alcohol flavor very strong in the finish. This is a great beer that I cant get enough of. Delightful.

JorisPPattyn (9882) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2006
Huge, very dense & creamy brownish head over chestnut-amber beer, very hazy with yellowish highlights and an olive shine. Very typical Weizennose: fruity-estery with banana, cloves and expressly wheat; further candi-sugar like, caramelly, malt notes, but pretty clear. Sourish-sweetish main taste, coloured by very fruity esters (oranges and banana) and a spicey, peppery flavour that is also promoting a spritzy MF. Very clearly sourish wheat taste, but also lots of malts, sweet & caramelly. All sounding very stereotypical for a Weizen, but indeed, this is very lively, characterful and very balanced. Spritzy MF, with a lot of body behind it, wheat slickness in a very pronounced way, alcoholwarming. Another Schneider classic. Strange tat the leading brewery produces also top quality. Something InBev, A-B or SABMiller can only dream of.
