Beer Review: Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp Weizenbock

This is the fourth, and last reviewed bottle from the Best of Summer Beer Camp twelve pack which I must say was quite a nice twelve pack. Full of great unique beers that really all so far have hit high marks with me.


Appearance: (4.5)
- Nice cloudy zesty yellow/orange will a fluffy couple fingers of head. Settles to a nice creamy blanket. Looks like this puppy will leave lacing everywhere it goes. The beer looks darn near perfect for the style. High marks for sure.

Smell: (4.0)
- Zesty zesty. Light clove, banana, bready malts, wheat smoothy.. lemon peel, yeasty goodness. Light honey, and sugary sweetness, Certainly smells delicious. That's about all I have!

Taste: (4.0)
- Creamy fruity malt. Banana cream pie. Lemon zest, citrus, orange, clove, light spice and an earthy herbal touch. Certainly an authentic yeast flare. Little touch sweet and wheaty, but is certainly spot on for the style. A little more hearty than I like, but that's why I have similar beers like Kellerweis to fall back on, which is also a favorite. This is certainly up there with it.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Creamy texture, lightly carbonated which is fantastic. Slightly drying from it's herbal hops. Touch sticky.

Overall: (4.0)
- Another great beer, easily a solid 2nd behind the Juniper black from this pack. I am a big fan of this guy.. just a little more sweet than I would like. A nice 4.5% sessionable version of this would more likely hit the spot, though there is always a place for one a little more robust as this. Certainly worth the purchase.

B+ / 3.98
