Zerberus Doppelbock

Category: Weizen Bock

Date Tasted:
Country: Germany
Alcohol: 7.5%
Cloudy medium golden amber color. Fruity, spicy, yeasty, complex, inviting aromas of caramelized banana, banana pudding, vanilla custard, and unglazed cinnamon bun with a creamy, petillant, moderately sweet medium body and a warming, distinctive, easy banana pancake with syrup, banana creme pie, allspice cake, and vanilla spice cake finish. A rich and flavorful Weizenbock with great texture and palate-satiating flavors.

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.
