I’ve long been a big Unertl fan, as I noted in my review of their Original Weissbier. Now that their Weissbier Bock is available in the States, I was eager to give it a try and see how it compared to my recollection.

It pours an amber ruby brown, with a head consisting of large bubble that is somewhat thinner than the Original. The nose is a malty sweet porridge of caramel, molasses and brown sugar with large CO2 bubbles and an even, balanced finish. It’s very nice, and I suspect will find some big fans in the U.S. who are looking for a more potent brew. I, however, didn’t find it nearly as rounded or complex as their Weissbier.

Nonetheless, it’s a solid offering and beats the pants off nearly any weizenbock made in the States.
