Bottle. Bottle (#7-2008). Remarkably accurate Weizenbock nose, muddy yeast and caramel and toffee wheat notes, thick malt, light alcohol, touch of clove and banana....but this one has some dark, crispy cracker, as well. Pours a dirty dark brown on gradient with a fizzy light brown head that leans toward yellow. Taste is essentially the same as the aroma, with plenty of flavor muddling and a crisp feel, with some alcohol showing. Thick malty body. Light spritzes of citrus and a blend of nutmeg and all-spice. Not exactly something I’d like to drink all the time, but I do like the yeast they use for DreamWeaver and it’s suitable here. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Pours a deep cloudy amber almsot ruby in dim light with a decent head, diminishes slightly and leaves some spotty lace. Aroma is typical hefe yeast, on the banana side with nice caramell malts, toffee, ligth nuttiness and hints of chocolate. Flavor is doughy, yeasty, solid wheat malts, light phenols, good fruity esters but I get a slight matchstick/bandaid character as it warms and towards the end of the palate. Medium bodied, with a nice smooth lightly spiced finish. Pretty good. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Cloudy amber/brown, with an off white head. Aroma is cloves, nutmeg, pepper, malt, and bananas. Flavor is the above spices, caramel, malt, bananas, and some alcohol. Wow, this is a nice one.
Bottle, from Capone’s. wj94 (69) - Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Pours dark, cloudy brown with 1-finger head. Aroma of banana, clove, spices, nutmeg - typical of the style, but very well done here. Well balanced sweetness, a little warming alcohol on the finish. Highly drinkable, could easily down 3-4 of these. One of the best Troegs beers I’ve had. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Pours a muddy brown orange. Hazy with a lasting velvety head. Aroma is strongly fruity, with notes of banana, clove, bubble gum, wheat, caramel malts. The flavor is closely related with lots of sweet malt combining with banana, clove, and bubble gum. Finishes with a nice wheat crisp/tart effect. Slightly warming.

Shared, thanks to dickinsonbeer. Brown-orange-amber pour (my color perception abilities suffer after drinking a lot i guess). Aroma is lightly tart, spices and bubblegum. Flavor is bubblegum sweet, grainy malt, light roast, and general tartness. IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 13, 2008

12 oz bottle split with Mro and Pitel. This beer pours a dark, murky brown with small to no dissipating head. The aroma is wheat and spice. Taste is wheat and malt. Good beer, hides the 8% fairly well too.
