Heavy Seas "Hang Ten"
Weizen Bock (ABV 10%)

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a cloudy medium chestnut brown with the head being rather large (3-4 fingers), a frothy light tan and fully diminishing with fair lacing.

It had a sweet aroma to it that started with a toasted straw malt and a large dose of a sweet doughy yeast with notes of banana, dried fruit caramel and a strong scent of alcohol.

The taste was moderately sweet and malty with a nice caramel note at first then became a little sour with a very strong yeast flavor that had hints of some dried fruit and a heavy alcohol presence at the end. The flavor hung around for a good long time, which most definitely enhanced the drinking experience.

Mouthfeel was just a smidgen below medium in body with the texture being thick and creamy and having a slightly dry finish and a mild carbonation.

Overall an interesting mix of styles, but I got to say it works so well I will definitely be having it again.
