Ayinger Weizenbock

Unexpected (but welcome), recent arrival at Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA. 500 mL bottle.
Poured into the Tucher Weizen glass the beer gives a lovely golden hazed body and a huge, imperious and airy head. Just the ticket. Some lace.
Nose and tastes are right on the money for the style. Bubblegum, banana, alcohol laden fruits, with a mild burn in the finish. A good dose and alcoholic bitterness jumps in at the back end.
A few phenolic, medicinal notes add to the experience and there is also a fairly large amount of toffee that I was not expecting. The toffee element is surprising but makes this beer for me. Delicious.
A classic example of the style, would be difficult to find a better example.
