93 Weizen Bock, Bastone Brewery (MI). 7.75% ABV (7/10)
Dense, murky brown color. Aromas of malt balls and chocolate covered dried fruits follow through on a satiny entry dryish medium-full body with banana crème brûlée and green nectarine notes. Finishes with a crisp, wafer, steel cut oat, and mineral fade. A delicious beer to savor.
86 Weizenbock, Upland Brewing (IN). 7.2% ABV (7/09)
Deep reddish mahogany color with a lacy head. Aromas of roasted cashews, baked apple, and singed banana bread pudding follow through on a round, silky entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with a clean precise tang and hint of toasted soy and pepper on the lively finish.
84 Weizen Bock, John Harvard’s Brew House, Framingham (MA). 7.2% ABV (7/10)
