0.5l bottle into weizen glass. Pours cloudy orange with a smaller (off white) head than most wheat beers. The prominent aroma is tangerines with caramel wheat malts and alcohol in the background. Sweet tangerines are again dominant on the tongue with touches of lemon citrus and spicy hops. The alcoholic presence comes through at the end. It is medium to full bodied with a rather sticky texture. Certainly an unusual take on the style (shouldn’t a weizen bock be dark?) but it is still largely successful in my opinion.

Bottle. Poured a murky orange with a small white head. First impressions are very good, very refreshing. Nice amount of citrus, watermelon, grapefruit, coriander, vanilla, some hops(but not too many). Aroma is decent, finish is a little dry but good. Carbonation is spot on too. Complex, refreshing and tasty. cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Wonderful fresh aroma of pale malts followed quickly by pineapple peach and a zesty grassiness. Dark orange-yellow color, big lasting head and splotchy lacing. Quenching and lighter to medium bodied with a noticeable high alcohol finish and a subtle bitterness. Crisp hop flavors, spicy and green. The hops lead to a plush fruitiness that’s not quite all citrus. Sweet doughy malt with some grainy grass and a faint alcohol push. astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Cloudy Gold. Long, small head. Aroma: Wheat, herbs, grass. Flavor: Banana, caramel, spice. Sweet finish.
Hoppy for its style With complex flavors and aromas. This is a very good and complex beer. ilovedarkbeer (2737) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Pours a murky. Golden orange tinted color. Medium sized off white creamy head. Nose is banana apple pineapple, coriander, clove, clean linen. Taste is citrus hops, laundry detergent, banana creme and pine. Mouthfeel is lively smooth and medium weight. This is a damn good underrated beer.

Beer pours dark golden color with a totally retained off white colored head. Aroma is compelling with notes of clove, orange peel, and sweet bread. Flavor is intially sweet with some enjoyable spiciness in the finish. If weizen bocks are supposed to be strong and dark, I am not sure this fits the style descpription. It is an enjoyable beer in its own right, and I agree with KAaggie might more resemble a saison than anything else. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2009

Pours a rich, deep light cheddar orange with a springy aroma of cedar, orange peel, lemon zest, and light banana. Flavor is buttery cedar with sour fruit peels in the finish. Touches of old wood and clove round out each sip. Thick, coating mouthfeel. Fantastic beer; closer to a saison in taste and smell, in my opinion.
Bottle was poured at Saraveza... Came out a cloudy, vibrant golden/yellow with a thick white head, greet retention. Hoppy nose and a tart yeast quality to it. The initial flavors of the brew were very hoppy and acidic with warming alcohol and sweet, citrusy esters to balance. bleeng (1681) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
500 ml bottle. Pours bright gold and very hazy and yeasty with a nice foamy white head. Interesting nose-a bit hoppy, yeasty, some unknown spiciness. Taste is a bit hoppy, yeasty, and sweet, with the German bock yeast and alcohol coming through at the end. Nice full rich body. I really like this beer-I’ll go pick up more of these.
