LongShot Weizenbock

12oz single from the Grape and Weizenbock mixed pack in 2008.
Turbid brown, somewhat unattractive, but fairly standard look for the style. Nice, high head with good density. Some lace. Chocolate milk colored body. Decent carbonation.
Usually the nose and the taste match fairly well on Weizenbock’s (one of my favorite styles), but this one has banana, (slight) clove and sweetness in the taste but more emphasis on the alcohol in the nose.
Sweetness is a little too much EVEN for my tastes, and I think it pushes this slightly to the edge of the style. Apart from that it has all the characteristics of a good Weizenbock but I think it needs some refinement. Nearly there.
