Gorgeously deep dark crimson toned brown color with a deceptive black tone in dull light. A delicately soft looking light tanned foam grows up quickly upon the pour into the weizen glass and stops at about two fingers high. The foam resides away just as soft as it looks to the point of hauntingly disappearing. Not much lace sticks, only a few spots here and there with most of it slipping back into the thick skim.

Aroma is sweet and tangy of wheat bread, perhaps a bit toasty, buttery, and smokey, and has slight purple grape juice notes as well as a titch to some chocolate.

Taste is moderately tanged in a sweet wheaty realm wrapped up into a red and purple grapey candied tartness and souring dryness across the finish. Slight chocolate, dark roasted nuttyness, vanilla, and yeasty spice fold into the finsih as it drys off ever so faintly with a simple souring lightness. Nice lasting tone within its sweetness as its smooth but peppy carbonated character really pulls thru to a nice touch of candy while still maintaining its true beeryness.

Body is of a perfect mediumness with a tart carbonation grabbing at the mid levels andfading into the finish with strong grape/berryish candy sweettarts.

This is a straight up solid showcase of what a Weizenbock should seek to be like. Perhaps a bit more complexity to its chocolate tones and a chewier body may have lead me like this even more. But all in all, this was very likeable and worth the $4.

Price: $4.00 Served In: Weizen Glass
