Dark brown, ruby red with a good layer of off-white foam head. Fruitcake aroma, banana, yeast and spice like clove. Amazing taste, every sip or gulp is smooth. Sweet malt, wheat, banana, chocolate, some ripe dark fruit taste, nice little alcohol edge. Love this.

Bit doubtful when I first poured this one from the bottle as it was a bit murky. However the flavour is excellent, quite complex with spice, sweet caramel and fruit cake. You get a real mix of flavours on the palate with each sip. Well recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Colore ambrato scuro e schiuma bianco panna. Odore di banana molto matura e spezie. In bocca parte e resta dolce accompagnata da una buona saggia carbonazione e una leggera aciditá che porta salivazione e chiede un nuovo sorso.

Deep amber-brown colour, fine cappuccino-like head. The aroma is yeast, banana, clove, dark bread, caramel and some alcohol. The taste is overwhelming, it’s intense and complex. There’s delicate sourness typical of weizen, there’s burnt dark bread, caramel and ripe banana. The bitterness is citrusy and herbal and the finish is sweet, bready and spicy. The body is full, carbonation is high. The alcohol is quite intrusive here but, besides that, everything works great together in this beer.

budedou (963) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 22, 2017
Aroma of dark dried fruit and spice. Complex flavors of wheat, malt, spice and fruit. Lots of carbonation. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Great Weizen Bock!

JefVerstraete (3308) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle from Geers. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Nose of plums, raisins, banana, wheat. Taste is caramel sweetness, than a lot of sour lemony notes. Almost undrinkable, Something went wrong here I suppose. Will rerate if I get another bottle.

Dark brown and cloudy with luscious white head. Quite a sweet caramel aroma. Similar to taste, dark caramel malts. Very creamy and full in the mouth. Booze-y sweetness is definitely there.

Bacchus66 (196) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear dark mahogany brown, large off white foamy head. Nose is big roast malt, caramel, wheat, black cherries. Delicious malty, raisin, spice, banana, clove flavors. Medium bodied and holds the alcohol well. Tasty finish. Nicely put together, this is a really enjoyable beer.

Never head a wheat doppelbock, but it’s a pretty interesting combination of flavors. This one was a bit boozy for being 8.2 but the overall flavors were rich and authentic. It pours absolutely gorgeous with a medium and long lasting fine head. Overall and gem worth trying.

Navers (105) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Brewed in 2013 edition, bottle wrapped in decorative paper. Beer from The Cave, Glasgow. Served in 14°C, Tulip Glass. Old beers after long maturation can be unpredictable, and this for sure was. Grenade! Beer explodes while opening, almost whole carbonation disappears in few seconds along with cascades of foam. Colour is two dimensional, light clear brown at the top, dark hazy brown at the bottom. A lot of big pieces of yeasts floating in the glass. Aroma is wine like, old cherries confiture, overripe fruits, hint of plum and roasted malt. Taste is also similar to aged dry wine, rich and very smooth alcohol, plums, overripe bananas, apples, cloves, roasted note. Anyway it was for sure interesting experience to try 4 years old Weizen Bock.

Towey1989 (2705) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle from The Stoke Beer Festival. Pours a Aroma of plum, maybe cherry, wheat, caramel, banana, some brown bread, slight vanilla and subtle spicy fruit esters. Taste of plum, raisin, bready malts, wheat, some caramel, toffee, slight vanilla, a little banana, a hint of cherry and subtle spice. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A long, sweetish, spicy fruit finish. Wow! A complete Weizenbock which delivers on what it promises. So smooth and flavourful that you could sip it all night. Delicious.
