Hazy amber color. Lively, interesting aromas and flavors of butter roasted peaches, nuts and bananas, hot iron, nettles, and spicy with a soft, shy, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, medium-long finish that shows accents of creamy banana custard, lettuce, and caramel nougat bar finish. A super smooth, creamy weizen bock that offers tons of enjoyment.

Weizen Bock

Beer Glass Hefeweizen Dark.jpg
Serve in a Weissbier Glass
Weizen bocks are pale gold to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 6.5-8.5%. These beers combine the character of hefeweizens and dopplebocks and are rich and malty with estery, yeasty qualities. These brews also show a note of wheaty crispness through the finish. Weizen bocks are essentially winter wheat beers, originally brewed in Bavaria. Noteworthy example of this style include: Schneider Aventinus, Hacker-Pschorr Weisse Bock and Urban Chestnut Maximilian.
