Zerberus Doppelbock

Category: Weizen Bock

Date Tasted:
Country: Germany
Alcohol: 7.5%
Cloudy amber color. Aromas and flavors of spicy frosted banana cake, lemon pepper muffin, and pickled root and cruciform vegetables with a creamy, bright, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, intricate, medium-long finish with accents of banana creme brulee, spiced nuts, white chocolate rice bar, and kale finish. A remarkably vibrant and subtle weizenbock with fine flavor and a graceful style.

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.
