Hazy medium red oak color. Lively, weird, off-putting aromas and flavors of old pot roast, stale soy, wet grain, and cole slaw with a satiny, bright, spritzy, very sweet medium body and a tingling, odd, brisk finish imparting accents of nuts, banana muffin, and wafer finish.

Weizen Bock

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.
