Hazy deep amber color. Inviting aromas and flavors of bananas foster with nuts, frosted pound cake, chamomile tea, and pomegranate vinaigrette with a slightly chewy, soft, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, long finish revealing notes of toffee, banana soufflé, and daikon finish. A delightfully chewy and appetizing weizen bock to savor.

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.
