Bottle at Charlies...Poured a rich brown with creamy white head. Aromas were sweet, malty and rich in dark fruits. Spice also became apparent as it warmed. Flavors were similar to the nose, with strong notes of plum, spice and malt with hints of alcohol in the finish. Body is smooth and rich from start to finish.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Bottle. Poured like the picture, deep reddish brown with white head. Strong clove spice nose mixed with sour (almost sweet and sour) dark fruits and dark toasted malts. Medium body, very bubbly. The cloves are toned down on the tongue, allowing for other various flavors of smoky fruits and grains. High carbonation makes for a dry finish, but theres a bit of a tangy aftertaste. The alcohol is masked very well-- wouldnt have guessed 8%. Not my favorite style, but a very enjoyable beer.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2005
Bottle: Brown tinged mahogany to dark gold at the edges with a thin, fading beige head. Aromas of luscious sweet phenolics, some caramelised apples and bananas, and bitter herbs. On the tongue a wonderful quartet of creamy banana and caramel, spicy herbs, peppery alcohol, and herbal blackcurrant bitters plays. A deeply satisfying beer to be enjoyed slowly and thoughtfully.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2005
Here is an in-your-face elixir, if ever I tasted one. Perfect this time of year in Oz, as its absolutely freezing. Poured from the bottle into its own glass. Garnet-brown, quite clear and syrupy looking, with a thin tan head that dissipated further to leave only islands of compressed bubbles. Left a lot of lace down the glass, even with its lack of retention. Deep, exotic and rich chocolate, wheat and dark fruit nose. Bananas, peppery spice, bready yeast and alcohol add to the complex aroma that continued to waft as I downed it. Tart and ripe dark fruits in the mouth, plums and cherries, with a sweet dessert style mix of treacly fruit syrup, vanilla and ripe bananas that smooths out in the back and becomes quite dry, before finishing with a strong sweet fruity and warming swallow (sherry-like). Medium-light in body, medium-light in carbonation and quite filling in the stomach, the flavours round the mouth with gusto and make for a superb sipping beer that had a masterful balance between fruity esters and spicy phenolics. Absolutely lovely and complex. A mouthful of good brew. (500mL, 01/09/05)

Hazy brown in colour with a wonderful moka head. Sweet malty aroma with bananas and spiced bread. Sweet malt in mouth with notes of coriander, molasses, pears and fruity esters. Rich and lightly oily mouthfeel.

Tatterdash (10) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
This is my first Weizenbock, having focused on Belgian brews for some time now, I decided to expand to German ales. Poured an evervescent red-brown with a foamy white head that dissipated slowly. Smell was a wine-like plum and banana. Taste... Hey! Its like that one I used to have at Gordon Biersch! Dark fruits, malts, bit of spice and banana, so chocolate creeping in. Has a surprisely light mouthfeel, which was unusual yet appreciated and the high ABV is so well hidden it is quaffable (although youll want most of it to land in your mouth so it is not a true quaff). This beer is also very refreshing and drinkable, especially on a hot summer night... I like this a lot.

Dark cherry and smokey oak timbers hit you when you pour it, and remain when you drink. What a wheat beer should be. Drink it from the glass in the picture so you can smell the funky goodness all the way down.
