12 oz bottle from Odeed; one of my favorite styles; Nose of bananas, caramel, yeast, cloves, andbreadiness; very cloudy brown with a medium reddish beige head; flavor of banana, brown sugar, cloves, and some nutmeg; finish is a tiny bit of hops, nutmeg, and a hint of warmth! Damn good weisenbock! More complex than most impy stouts! Almost as godd as the Livery and my Fav Valley Effingud! BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2008 Bottle and served in Aventinus glass: Muddled deep amber hue with a constant frothy head but minimal lace. The aroma displays all the esters I would expect from the genre with banana, clove, bubblegum, caramel, toast, fig, hint of smoke and some alcoholic vapours. The spicy ester just hangs around the nose forever! Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2008
The taste has a roundness of malt throughout with a slight burnt finish supported by a light-handed fruity quality and just a dash of herbal hops. The wheat really is noticeable in midsection and melds the flavor profile together very well. The finish shows off the spicy qualities of the yeast that lingerings on towards the chalky dry finish. A bit sweet upon the aftertaste, nougat and butterscotch or it would have been a 10 for flavor profile. The mouth feel is soft and somewhat chewy, dry and a touch warming.
Overall a wonderful example of a style I wish more brewers would attempt. Right up there with the best of the genre. GET YA SOME!!!
(bottle, thanks Tytoanderso) Pours cloudy brown with a thick off-white head. Aroma is just huge with banana, clove, gumball, strawberry, and some raisin as well. This aroma is really wonderful. The taste does not disappoint, with a substantial amount of banana, caramel in the beginning, the mid-palate produces some spicy clove, and the finish is clean and provides that great wheaty twang. This is a really high quality weizenbock, and is incredibly underrated. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle, courtesy tpd975. Pours a hazy caramel color, with a fizzy white head and wet ring of lacing on the glass. Nose of dark ripe fruit, chocolate, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, some apple and zest. Flavor is creamy chocolate and caramel, some slight roast, wheat and very smooth flavors throughout the beer. Very full-bodied, creamy. Tons of flavor, and nicely balanced. checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Tasting @ Capone’s: Poured a murky mud like color with a thick head. This was definitely unfiltered. The aroma was that of yeast and malt. The flavor on this was terrific. It definitely had characteristic of the Dreamweaver, but with move flavor. This was our favorite beer of the night.

Poured a murky red orange color with a large, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, clove, citrus, dark fruits, and faint brown sugar. Taste of tart citrus, wheat, banana, clove, with nougat, and faint alcohol. I like this yeast strain alot! DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours ruddy medium brown with 1-finger off-white head. Nice aroma of banana, clove, brown sugar, caramel malt, spicy notes. Medium palate with a lot going on in the flavor department. Banana, clove, malt, brown sugar, toffee, and some backup spicy hop notes make this one very complex and enjoyable. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 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. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of The_Epeeist: Pours a hazy copper amber with a nicely-lacing froth of white head. Sweet caramel and bready German yeasty nose has a good clove presence and some banana esters. Body starts fairly full and rich with good malty wheat sweetness and nice balance of clove spice and light citrus before an authentic bready yeasty finish. A very nice weizenbock.
